CBOT hosts Floyd Upperman Trading Webinar to teach trading strategies that make money

Floyd's commodities trading and futures trading strategies are based on many years of market observations and trading experience. He's been around and seen it all, from the crash of 1987 to the tech wreck at the end of the 1990's.  During this time he predicted the end of the commodities bear market and beginning of the next bull market.  He predicted a shift into commodities following the real estate collapse in 2008.  Between 1997 and 2004 Floyd turned wildly bullish on gold (under $400/oz) and recommended longer-term investments in both gold and silver at that time (note: silver was trading around $5 an ounce).  In 1998 he also wrote a special report where he predicted the end of the bear market in commodities and the beginning of the next commodities bull market (note: at the time of his report, crude oil was trading around $10 a barrel).

Floyd has spent years developing trading systems that combine data contained in the U.S. government commitments of traders (COT) reports with unique price studies. "Fancy charts and rows of monitors aren't going to do what a robust method can do for your trading", according to Floyd. "It all comes down to having a method that can provide an edge, having faith in the method, and the discipline to adhere to the rules."

Many people have benefited from attending Floyd's workshops or watching his DVD's.  If you would like to purchase Floyd's DVD workshop package, click here and select the DVD package on the bottom.  Keep in mind you receive the entire DVD package FREE by simply signing up for 1-year membership! 

Our Custom Navigation Program ("CNP") contains a "calendar look back feature" ("CLBF") which helps traders develop and improve their trading instinct, and as a result, produce more successful trading decisions (without relying on someone else to do it). The knowledge gained through personal observation using our CNP can greatly enhance a traders abilities in real trading situations by increasing confidence, which is essential to success when faced with difficult trading decisions. The CLBF is a unique and powerful tool that gives traders the ability to go back in time to specific dates in the past and walk through previous trading opportunities, stepping forward one day at a time. This gives traders the opportunity to review the specific behavior changes to the indicators price patterns leading up to and throughout previous trading opportunities.
