This started as a reply to one but goes more into how I can help

With a different thought process to trading

And what I provide at this boutique.

Bonds now off 4 full points 156.28. LBU 350 is Live live, 3 #s tight.


Ok how about this program for you;

We decide what to play and we do small

Buy half, then other half. Your market, My Extreme's?

Doubling your size is difficult.

You just need to tell me what you want to buy or sell,

Your axe to grind.

In front of an event like usda,that is good selection of a trade.

You buy it, take shot around high emotion fast vertical moves.

That trade qualified especially after last usda. So your head is on straight.

You saw value

But it was trade execution,

The algo of instructions.

For most,

its timing but I try to add few rules we must accept as risk.

This is seldom swing type trades and nothing more.

I.E it we buy wheat pre usda having a risk stop too tight means an exception?

We pull our risk stop Only the night trading session.

I add that value for clients.

We can trade tiny.

Maybe trade high movement ranges

BUT ONLY AS $1500-?,$5K!

Fund it properly so you can have, sometimes replace levels,

Sometimes not.

Accepting risk until the Big Boys show up in am is when you get filled


Im covering different trading disciplines from pro traders to rural cowboys.

Its the same for all just certain trades depending in diff session

You should have accepted risk,

Take half at worst?

Buy above those lows is casual comment for you.

It acted good, one day later,

The trade campaign in textbooks.

Open with me but buy half so not to be distracted.

Grains either way next 15c in corn who knows,


Or $2.00 in corn,?

unequivic, strike.

Corn my opinion will be a historic run the next year. Call me Sat am sometime? 8am on.

I see opportunity like CN0CZ0 going $2.00 over. Like unfolding now.

Come to HighGround where you tell me what you want to play,

And I will provide charts with levels that pretty much prove my points about extremes. You can follow the patterns when I either teach or provide to you that DO NOT HAVE THE TIME.

Thats why I get the, "more experienced guys older than I.

Now they want to learn and some have told me their trades or how they catch how these Macro TLs work like CZ 431 1/2.

Sit on both sides and I suggest we use OCO orders. Two orders;

a Stop and a Profit linked.

One cancels the other

Thats value for all of US thats why it is premium feature I provide.

I think our approach continues to focus on extremes like USU 156.28 which this OLS, took years to trigger and sometimes be the' Top.

Reverse pattern in tow,

What is it?

This is all I see in these charts that all have the same recurring patterns that start to unfold in different timeframes.

Leave that to me,

You come to HighGround for broker assisted and I will provide most probably the, some of the goodest?

Price levels, Ideas,

when things get cooking


10% to 40% moves is my specialty.

The Game. Like CZ 366 pre drought Corn Buy #.

I try to see things ahead of the crowd,

It can be a burden,

I say get someone who has floor traded mentality

where lately you should be discovered,

Corn spreads provide just as much opportunity,

You have to be buying corn now is opinion again,

Turned over those 444, Now buy back against. Put orders in now.

as naked flat price. Call or open Now. This train is leaving station, +.31 Low. On 7.11.19.

They hit at separate times so we work low margin spreads as well. My thought process of opportunity.

I will explain the bets if you trade through me.

Having another futures account might just be the access you need,

When you need it.

Systemic things could be in very near future.

Trump shuts down Fall? Expect Unexpected.


MASON CITY NEXT SAT 7.20? I am planning Saturday if your around? Let's talk turkey.

You might even learn a thing or two.

Lets make an appointment and meet. Kick the tires and meet the real deal. Enough let's do a seminar on the spot. By Airport-ish by Lake. Confirming this weekend.


You may want exposure to something esoteric to you now?

Gold Dollar LB, Bonds or Dow Jones?

You dont want to buy the last month that LOCKS LIMIT UP (dah)

was this weeks 72 yr old's lesson,

what market?

Students of Markets

Experience I provide Clients

Building Relationships where trust and Integrity,

is earned pretty much immediately.

I am here to do your futures business.

Educational Program offered as well.

CQG Users- inquire, Pacs with cond.s sold as well.

Train to be a Professional Trader with all those deductions? I can teach my 45 years of floor trading tactics I learned from Pro Members, as well.
