The rest of the story........

Picking up an important part of my mentoring least for me, was the day I got a call from Richard Felton my friend and commodity mentor. He was 39 years old, I was 33yrs. old at the time, he had a wife and two boys to raise. He was still in Oklahoma and I was in Texas. Richard told me he had just gotten the results from his Doctor, he'd not been feeling well for sometime, and the news was bad, he had pancreatic cancer. The news broke my heart. Richard was the one who had planted the seed in me, that of being a commodity trading and we had worked together for the last 8 years.

We lost Richard within six months. It's for the most part, the reason that I've chosen not only to have a medical foundation but also to continue on as a commodity trader and also teach a small number of serious students one-on-one, each year, how to be a successful commodity trader.

A lot has changed in the last 31 years since Richard died, but I've never lost my love of commodity trading and my desire to 'pay-it-forward' like Richard did for me by introducing, teaching and coaching those who are serious about learning how to trade the commodity markets. I understand that trading it's for everyone, but for those who seek the financial independence that commodity trading can bring and for those who really are entrepreneurs at heart this knowledge and education is invaluable. This is why I do what I do and why I'm so passionate about it. All the best, JH

The need for a Professional Commodity Mentor


 I was first introduced to commodity trading when I was 24 years old, that was in 1974. My mentor was Richard Felton. Richard was 8 years older than me. He was mostly into Feeder Cattle, Live Cattle & Lean Hogs. We both lived in Oklahoma. In those days we had to go to a commodity brokers office where they had 'split-flap', often called "Solari" boards, displaying the ever changing price action during the time the markets were open. They made an awful clickty-clack noise. For those that remember they used the same boards for departure / arrivals at airports in the "old" days. 


I could never have begun to understand the complications and complexities of commodity day trading, let-a-lone commodity index trading without a mentor. I can take years off your learning curve. Today you always have to ask what is the motivation of the person selling you the indicators. Most are for profit and most indicators have been around for awhile and are simply renamed and repackaged. Most professional traders actually don't teach. They don't have to. They make so much money .... why would they, and many professional traders can't tell you why they do what they do. I can. I teach one-on-one for as long a you need me and I only accept six (6) new students per year. I trade all day till the markets close and then I return calls and do correspondence and work on my foundation and then I teach in the evenings Monday - Thursday. I can usually be found Friday-Sunday at my Ranch which is part of my non-profit foundation. It's only because of the foundation that I teach because that's part of the way we fund the foundation. We are a 501(c)3 and course fee can be tax deductible. I offer three courses: Intro. to Commodity Trading, Advanced Trading & a Graduate Trading Program.


I'm 64 years old now and I still love to teach serious trading students. I feel it's my responsibility to 'Pay-it-Forward". Anyone can learn day-trading if they are willing to take the time to become educated from a professional commodity mentor. If you're ready to change you're financial life, please fill out the application on my website and I'll email you and we'll set up a time to visit on the phone. All the best, JH.

We're kicking off our new 'Commodity Index Trading Blog'

Periodically, usually on Friday, following the close of the markets I'll be posting a review of the commodity markets we follow. Since there is so much to learn about day-trading ever bit of information can be helpful......I hope it is for you. That's why I'm here, to educate, mentor and coach my students to financial success in the markets so they to can have part-time or full time income from the markets. I'm not a big fan of giving your discretionary income to a financial advisor and expecting them to make your money grow for you. History has proven they aren't much better than a monkey picking stocks by throwing darts at a stock board. Educate yourself and take control of your own financial future.

Bear with me as Blogging is a new step for me and I'm bound to have some hiccups along the way. I encourage you to follow me and hopefully join me so we can work together in what I believe is the most exciting and profitable business available to the common man today.

Risk Disclosure:

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without

jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only

those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of

future results.


Hypothetical Performance Disclosure:

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
