New Commodity Trading Guide, The: Breakthrough Strategies for Capturing Market Profits
Product Author Bios
George Kleinman is President of the successful futures advisory, brokerage, and trading firm, Commodity Resource Corp (CRC). George founded CRC in 1983 from the floor of the Minneapolis Grain Exchange to offer a more personalized level of service to commodity traders.
He entered the business with Merrill Lynch Commodities (1978-1983). At Merrill he attained the honor of “Golden Circle”--one of Merrill’s top ten commodity brokers internationally. For more than 25 years, George was a member of various commodity exchanges. He is the author of three previous books on commodities and futures trading.
He has developed his own proprietary trading techniques and is Executive Editor of the commodity trading advisory service Futures Market Forecaster. In 1995, George relocated to northern Nevada and today trades from his office overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe.
“I’ve been trading stocks and commodities for more than 30 years, and I’ve read any number of how-to books, but George Kleinman’s The New Commodity Trading Guide is as clear, precise, and useful as any book I’ve come across during my career. I cannot recommend it strongly enough, if for no other reason than George finally explains ‘The Voice from the Tomb’ better than any of the old guard at the CBOT. Read it and reap.”--Dennis Gartman, editor/publisher The Gartman Letter, L.C.
“Commodities present great financial opportunity and, as every hedge fund and trader has experienced, great risk. This book shows how to use commodity trading and volatility to capture excess profits while limiting losses. These lessons are as critical for investors as they are for traders, as we are likely to be in a volatile trading environment for the foreseeable future.”--Daniel J. Dart, private investor and COO, Merrill Lynch Investment Managers, Third Party Group (retired)
“George Kleinman’s book has just the right blend of practical trading wisdom, technical charting, and fundamental analysis. It’s full of revealing discussions about seasonal trading patterns and long term trends. But most importantly it presents a balanced view that honestly reveals both the difficulties and advantages of being a private commodities trader. There’s something here for both experienced investors and beginners interested in learning from a seasoned expert.”--Jeff Augen, author of The Volatility Edge in Options Trading and Trading Options at Expiration
“I highly recommend George Kleinman’s The New Commodity Trading Guide. George’s insights, the result of 25 years of successful trading experience, are explained in a way that a new trader can grasp and, at the same time, an experienced trader can translate into his own trading. Best of all, George presents many of his own creative trading methods including his Natural Number Method, explained for the first time in this book.”--Jeff Quinto, president of Transformative Trading and futures trading coach
“Since leaving the trading floor, George is one of the few people I still talk to about the markets, and this book clearly shows why. He is able to take classic time-tested methods of technical analysis and adapt them to the conditions faced by today’s electronic traders.”--Andrew Stanton, 20-year veteran of the NY trading floors
Over the long term, commodities prices are expected to rise based on massive increases in global demand. But, as many investors have discovered the hard way, merely knowing this is not enough to make consistent profits. Fundamental changes in the commodities markets have occurred that have implications most investors do not understand. For instance, century-old “open outcry” trading floors have now been replaced with computerized trading. In The New Commodity Trading Guide, commodities expert George Kleinman reveals the new practical realities of worldwide electronic commodities trading and specific strategies for capitalizing on today’s radically different markets.
Kleinman shows how to leverage the one indicator that consistently drives commodity prices today...introduces the right ways to trade on news and profit from trends...reveals consistent seasonal price shifts that mean huge profits...shows which conventional strategies still work (and which don’t!). Finally, he introduces the Natural Number Method, a breakthrough approach that any commodities trader can use to supercharge performance!

An Absolute Must Read for any current or future trader,
This review is from: The New Commodity Trading Guide: Breakthrough Strategies for Capturing Market Profits (Hardcover)I generally do not write reviews, however I found the strategies in this book so beneficial for any serious trader (or serious trader-to-be) that I felt compelled to add my two cents.
The concepts presented in the Trading Guide are elegant, simple yet profound. The author points out there's no `Holy Grail', however I have already used his SNI and Voice from the Tomb for successful trades, and his `Breakthrough Strategy' in my experience identifies the major trends more often than not.
In response to `Old Fashioned' I felt this review unfair in that the moving average explanation was tucked not in the body of the book but in the Appendix with this section specifically targeted for novices not familiar with how these work (and I do not see where he talks about calculating by hand?) Don't let this one review put you off as the body of the book presents many old and new useful concepts some I have not seen before in my many years of trading.
An excellent... Read more

This review is from: The New Commodity Trading Guide: Breakthrough Strategies for Capturing Market Profits (Hardcover)Great info. Essential reading, for every serious trader. Many books have
been written over the years fully validating trend following (more like riding)
but yours, shows readers How to - select and then actually trade a trend,
using simple, easy to see and reliable patterns.
Congratulations. You have provided a great gift to investors and traders -
a basis for success, to those who truly want it. An excellent book.

Old Fashioned Filler,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The New Commodity Trading Guide: Breakthrough Strategies for Capturing Market Profits (Hardcover)Any book that gives a trader the formula for calculating moving averages in this day and age is struggling for material. Any trader who is calculating moving averages by hand or programing them in themselves has too much free time on their hands.
The book does offer one interesting trading strategy but with no statistical evidence to back it up.
It may be worth a read for some simply for the strategy. Otherwise, the book is for novices only and would be incomplete for them at that.
