Profits look good as we close out all existing trades. The last trade hit the trailing stop. We ended up with some very nice profits for the 1st Quarter. There will be more trades to come soon. Standby!01/22/18 - Gold - Enter Short - We hit our stop at 1335. This gave us a nice profit of $440 per contract. We gave back some profits on Gold since last week, but overall I am happy with this and the other trades we entered into since Late December. 1st Quarter is looking good. That's all for now

Harvest Report. Beans Blew Past the Teens!

By |February 20th, 2018|

Weekly Update. Smooth Sailing.

By |February 11th, 2018|

No changes. Trades are looking good, smooth sailing on the horizon. No changes this week. Our current trades are looking good except for the currencies. We used options on those trades and expiration is coming up in March. We may lose the premium, but we have more than made up for it across the board on other trades. The Hog trade is looking fantastic right now. We got in on 01/08/18 and are currently up $2,960 dollars per contract! Gold and Soybeans are also in profits and I expect more to
