Futures & options trading involves risk and may not be suitable for all types of investors. Trading is a risky business, and people do lose money trading futures contracts and options on futures. There are NO implied guarantees or promises of success made on this website anywhere. All futures trading is risky regardless of the methods, techniques and/or rules to manage and/or contain risk. No trade is risk free and trading is not Floyd's only means of income. Floyd makes no guarantees for success. Past performance is not a guarantee of future profits or future success. The markets are volatile and constantly changing. To survive in this business, one must learn to recognize risk, not to fear it. Successful trading is simply exploiting risky opportunities. One must learn to recognize what it means to be in the right place at the right time, and have the courage to do something with this knowledge.

Floyd Upperman is a full time trader, investor, advisor and businessman. Floyd is recognized throughout the world by a growing audience of professionals for his work with the U.S. government Commitments of Traders (COT) reports. Floyd has been a registered commodity trading advisor (NFA# 0281183) for the last 10+ years and is currently president of Floyd Upperman & Associates.
