In 1985, John Hill, long time veteran of futures trading decided the time was long overdue for an organization in the futures industry that would provide honest, objective evaluations of the multitude of system vendors, trading advisory services, and commodity trading advisors. The futures industry’s reputation has been besmirched by charlatans making inflated performance claims. This serves only to perpetuate the myth that futures is somehow more corrupt or “controlled” than other investment avenues.
The futures industry has its share of people of integrity, whose honest efforts in the bright light of full disclosure can indeed aid other traders in the futures markets. This aid can be in a number of different forms including: trading systems advisory services, books, or discretionary managed accounts.
Our main goal is to provide useful information to you in an effort to help you make educated decisions.
