Trade with the pros

Those who can’t do, teach. But those who can do teach better.

A lot of trading services are written and headed by people who have never traded professionally, on the floor or off. Option hotline’s contributors have worked as market makers, floor brokers and proprietary traders at the cboe and other primary exchanges…and for major institutions and hedge funds.

Dear Dr Duke: Your Webinars Are Like Having a Coach In My Corner You are teaching me a lot about trading; that's why I'm sharing this with you. I'm sure I make moves you wouldn't, but I rely a great deal on your analysis and suggestions. I'm following my own rules much more consistently as well, because of your advice. I'm feeling much more confident about entering trades that you do not send to the trading group, but which you plant the seeds for in your webinars. I just want to say "Thank you" for your help. It sure is a great help to have you as a coach in my corner.

Dear Dr. Duke: Best Spread Trading Results I've Ever Had! Your stock selection has been terrific, and the results have been incredible. I'm getting the best spread trading results I've ever had thanks to you.

Dear Dr Duke: Your Trading Group Has Really Helped Me Just wanted to say thanks and to let you know how invaluable all of your teaching and coaching has meant! Your trading group has really helped me to refine my practices, and to expand my trading. The additions of the verticals back into my trading has helped, not only financially (again thanks to you), but has allowed me to focus on something other than my IC's, which as you know is at times like watching paint dry - which is what we want.

I just put the trades on exactly as Bubba lays them out. And then every morning, pre-market opening, he updates what to do or what not to do. So, following his recommendations takes little time. And I end up with the same results as he does... because he also does the trades himself.

Bubba’s strategies are different... We had a chance to earn a $3,000 profit with no more than about $300 at risk.

You earn income consistently. And then occasionally you’ll get a really nice homerun! Thanks to Bubba

I actually learned about Bubba from another investment firm. They said he had a unique approach to trading that was really great. And they were right!

Jeff W.

Bubba has taught me way more...than most traders will ever know.
