Trading Spreads and Seasonals is a powerful, profit enhancing trading course based on Joe Ross’ years of personal trading experience and remarkable trading success. These days, it seems most traders are focused on outright futures or options trading strategies. You hardly ever hear of anyone who trades spreads or seasonal spreads, or outright seasonal futures – especially at the same time! That’s because very few futures traders truly understand seasonality. This is why far too many never earn all they can from trading. Worse than that, they end up losing money.
Joe is one of the few in recent years to consider how those historical tendencies can be analyzed for trading in current real-time. Historical tendencies are powerful tools, but in practice most traders need to maintain some flexibility and use some judgment. This book helps demystifY seasonal price movement.
