Great computer analysis; wish I was a computer so I could understand it!

By Miles R. Hoffman - May 12, 2006

This book is packed with great spread analysis. The insight, however, is just fair to "middling" (Ha!Ha! - look up middling!). And I found the writing extremely poor, for it was confusing. Thank God (and the writers) for this because it made me dissect the spreads to understand them. I've only scratched the surface, but my confusion has IMHO given me some valuable insights:

Writing comments:

(1) "Specific" contracts are not identified and symbols are not used (the very first spread "Buy Nov crude, Sell Apr crude" means, for example, buy Nov04, sell Apr05). Be sure you are trading what it recommends!

(2) Definitions: Above is a "bull spread" but bull spread is not cleared defined. The same can be said for "Red" Dec Corn. The definition of "Red" is done by inference ("next year's `Red' crop."), BUT a clear and concise definition for "Red" is given on page 358, or 270 pages LATER!

(3) Confusing: On page 88, a paragraph starts "Long old-crop... read more

Great idea, but...

By M. Ruschka "freewind13" - September 27, 2006

It is a great idea to publish a book like this. When I received this book I was happy, but a few minutes later I was already disappointed. I own a few actual statistics from the same company (Moore Research Center) and couldn`t believe, that they have hidden the most important statistics. For example feeder cattle: in their statistic they published 2 trades with a winning chance of 100 %. In this book they published zero! For example lean hog: in their statistic: 9 trade-opportunities with a winning chance of 100 %. In this book: only 2! They filled this book with 80 % chances. I don`t know, why they have hidden the higher chances?! Somehow I have the impression, this company don't want to tell us the trades with the highest probability. What a pity!

Worth the Money

By Erik B. Kusk - March 16, 2006

I bought this book when it was first published a few months ago. I have been paper trading the more simple spreads. I have ignored the ratio spreads and the ones that seem to use 2 different commodites that appear to be unrelated. I have several open now, but of the closed trades, so far, 8 wins and 6 losses and a gain of over $7,000. This does not have commission or slippage deducted. I have been just blindly entering and exiting on the dates they show in the book. If you use a strategy like Joe Ross teaches in his book, some of the losing trades could have been avoided entirely. I am almost ready to start trading real money.
