Everybody Gets What They Want

Legendary futures trader Ed Seykota grew one $5,000 client account by 250,000 percent into over $12,000,000 per the New York Times bestseller “Market Wizards” by Jack Schwager. That’s on a cash-on-cash basis.

But, this is not what Seykota is talking about when he says “everybody gets what they want.”  He means that unconscious desires are immediately expressed when trading the frantic futures markets. 

Careless gamblers are consumed by the fire in the pit when trades wipe out their accounts.  For every man or woman made millionaire by the futures markets there are hundreds of financial body bags for those who fail.

This course is a professional primer of core concepts and strategies intended to increase your probability of survival in these markets.  Take your first steps to exploring your possibility of futures trading as a business.
