Futures Truth Magazine published quarterly, was founded in 1985 by John Hill a long time veteran of futures trading. Mr. Hill was convinced the futures industry was long overdue for an organization that would provide honest, objective evaluations of the multitude of system vendors, trading advisory services, and commodity trading advisors. The futures industry's reputation had been besmirched by charlatans making inflated performance claims.
In other words, the wild, wild, west of futures, needed a Sheriff. With dogged determination and a very bright light, John sat out to earn his tin star. Turns out this was more than a one man job. He deputized Dr. Dean Handley, PhD. and Mr. George Pruitt who is now Director of Research at Futures Truth.
Dr. Handley decided the best plan of attack was to go directly to the source of the problem. 4 years ago he actually had the brass audacity to begin visiting "trading rooms" and taking copious notes on each leg of the journey. In 2013 he published the result of his work under the title:
Trading Futures Successfully on the Shoulders of Giants
by Dr. Dean Handley
His follow up article published along with Mr. Pruitt's assistance hit the streets Wednesday March 26, 2014 under the title:
Trading Futures Successfully:
by Dr. Dean Handley & George Pruitt
Excerpt from the article:
Trading futures successfully is a difficult; in fact when I (DAH) started trading, I could not even find the definition of successful! My journey started and continued to what eventually became 517 futures trade rooms that I examined, which to the best of my knowledge represents the entire global futures cyber room industry. I developed three absolute requirements (422 Futures Rooms - Red Pill, Blue Pill, Gold Pill, Futures Truth #3 2013) that allowed me to find the very best trade rooms:
1. That they post a detailed and truthful track record of trades and P/L on a trade by trade or daily basis.
2. That upon review of that track record they earn a net $50,000/ year (~$1000/wk) on a 3 contract/trade basis.
3. That they call trades in a clear and straightforward manner that allows for room members to replicate their trades in real time.
These three criteria (or doctrines as I call them) are highly demanding and when applied to all 517 rooms, I eliminated ~98% of rooms from further consideration. This has allowed me to identify the 10 best futures trading rooms (Trading Futures Successfully on the Shoulders of Giants, Futures Truth #4, 2103).
Continuing in this regard, I have indentified four additional best rooms for consideration and those are profiled below. With their addition, the total number of “Successful Trade Giants” comes to 14. As the 10 did before them, they distinguish themselves according the above doctrines in a most valuable and consistent manner.
When asked to comment, CFRN Founder DeWayne Reeves stated, "We are extremely pleased that in an often troubled industry... our Hard work, Integrity and Profitability (HIP) has been recognized by an industry expert such as Dr. Handley and is currently in use by hundreds of retail and institutional traders around the world. Again, we are extremely honored to be added to this prestigious "short list", but by no means will we take this as an opportunity to rest on our laurels. In fact, just this week we announced the CFRN Method and Indicator Set is now available on the NinjaTrader Platform as well as dtPro. A separate press release regarding the integration of NinjaTrader will follow next week.
If anything, this recognition serves as an incentive for every member of our team to work even harder, helping ordinary people (people like me) learn to Trade for a Living.
To celebrate this milestone, CFRN would like to invite traders and even those who are simply considering trading as a profession, to join us for our Emini Open House which will be held over the next 2 days - Thursday March 27th and Friday March 28th"
