Kleinman introduces powerful new trend-based techniques for identifying those trades that fit right into your “sweet spot” for profits. You’ll learn how the commodities markets have changed–and how to successfully use discipline to avoid today’s “shark-infested waters.”

 

Building on more than 30 years of success, Kleinman explains how futures and options trading works now, how psychology impacts these markets, and how to avoid the pitfalls. He offers updated coverage of electronic trading, today’s contracts, and advanced techniques, including his exclusive Pivot Indicator approach.
