In This Issue
Perhaps the greatest luxury I have in this business is the ability to observe the experiences of many traders with different personalities, life schedules and risk capital, each trading in a variety of markets. What most astute brokers realize is that, over time, as some individuals prematurely exit winners while others desperately cling to losers, it becomes quite possible to match different "blood types" of those traders with their correct "trading diets." Clearly, we're not talking the medical blood type here, but in the figurative sense it makes the right point. With practice, it's not too hard to determine blood types (type of trading best suited to the individual) based on the personality of the trader, and then prescribe a diet based on that individual trader's capital, experience, risk profile and schedule.

Dry weather in Argentina, tough weather in the US wheat region along with a strong move in the beans complex helped wheat futures jumpt much higher!
Or perhaps the following may be part of it?
Voice From The Tomb History
This is the legend of a wise grain trader that made a fortune trading "seasonals" in the pits of the Chicago Board of Trade.
"After his wife died, a millionaire grain trader dedicated his life to raising their children. The children were lazy and thought they'd inherit all of their father's money.
He felt that his children were wasteful and believed they took him for granted. When he died, all the money went to charity. All he left them in his will were the following dates of when to buy and sell.
The will said that if they strictly followed his advice, they'd have the fortunes they always thought were going to drop in their laps."
Obviously this may just be a nice story...but one of the dates for the wheat market were: Buy February 22nd....
