making a living doing it. I believe that we can all learn
a lot from listening to what profit making traders are doing.
There are a lot of vendors out there who have very interesting
ideas but can't trade their way out of a paper bag. That
doesn't mean that their ideas are not valid but that their
ideas have to be able to work in the real world.
and I can try to figure out new and exciting trading systems

CTCR is dedicated to providing the best research into trading
systems of any publication!

heavyweights in the options arena. (order
