20-30% Per Month in Foreign Exchange Trading?|
by Adam Aycock
In a tide of new regulatory measures issued by the
Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) most of the
unscrupulous Forex firms have now disappeared or been
forced to change their tune and marketing tactics ~ some
have even gone underground.
In the present climate of new regulations, is it time to
take a new look at FX trading and the aspiring traders who
are making Forex a profitably managed alternative
Most US based hedge funds agree~ IT IS TIME!
During an interview with a US based futures trader that
worked for an overseas "fund", I learned some very
interesting things... There are small private groups of
investors that are formed outside the purview of the CFTC
or other countries regulatory agencies that are currently
making 20-30% per month, each and every month ~ and have
been for the last 11 months.
One of these groups initially began in Germany for small
investors and was marketed under the new business slang
of a High Yield Investment Program (HYIP) which has since
been sold to a Grant Andrews and other "e-gold"
enthusiasts (mostly tax protestors)...
But the Main trading group has gone on to become a
legitimate trading company in the United States with the
most experienced trader becoming the manager and director
Accepting investments as low as $250 is undoubtedly an
enticement to the retail investment sector and a maximum
investment of $25,000,000 deservedly an enticement for
As of this writing (November 10, 2003) the company has
began operations as an Forex Pool conducting it's trading
business ONLY with registered FCM's in the US.
I was personally honored to grace the hallowed halls of a
VERY PRIVATE trading operation managed from the State of
Missouri (of all places), witnessed an incredible
spectacle of 6 traders making a bit over 8% on a Monday in
a period of 4.5 hours or so and was delightedly impressed
to say the least. They told me it was happening long
before it actually did... What do they know that I don't?
It turns out that the Director has over 18 years of
trading experience in private (what WAS he doing there?)
for his own knowledge, interest and experience. It turns
out that he and a few colegues found a way to express a
trending market BEFORE the market actually began to
trend... Now that is something to read about...
Although the knowledge wasn't overly remarkable in
percentage terms on a monthly basis (these are
professional traders making 5-50% per month ya' have to
understand...) the utilized trading system is a
combination of money management techniques and market
volatility measures which, when combined in certain
combinations... provide a steady flow of profit while
limiting drawdowns (losses), limiting risk and increasing
profitability... Can it be true?... 17% per month for 11
months now and I'm told it's increasing to 20-25% with an
essential programming change that doesn't change the past
trading except, if it had been done in the past, it would
have returned the higher amounts... the software wasn't
capable of doing so and now it is! Incredible... Do I
believe it? I like the 17% per month... My stocks are
It turns out that there are Three (3) groups of two (2)
traders utilizing different trading styles - which
together providd a stable rate of return according to ones
own risk profile, whether it be conservative, moderate or
aggressive... Even after the 25% incentive fees are
deducted each week...
And there's more... They presently have two funds. (1) The
High Yield Fund where you get what you get after the 25%
fees and 5% (optional) sales load; and (2) The Stability
Fund where you get 5% every month and a Reserve Fund that
guarantees the 5% per month each month... even if actual
trading is under the "norm"... Secondly, the Reserves are
also used to guarantee 100% of the principal invested so
there is little or no risk after 6 months or so...
Well, that quite a choice in hedge fund investing.
They are also interviewing other traders, some claiming
returns way out there in ga-ga land... But don't sweat it,
the Director has his feet on the ground, his interest is
long-term and stable minded.
So, it turns out that 25% per month is possible - with
just Forex trading... mix in a certain management style
that limits risk by guaranteeing your principal and feeds
a reserve fund for contingencies... and twalah! You've got
yourself the very best in Alternative Trading Capital
Extra funds to actually live life with! And isn't that
what this is all about?
See you there!
