I Am Excited To Present This New Contributing Trader

Do You Know This Man?

He was featured in Jack Schwager’s book
Stock Market Wizards.

He’s a trading veteran of
28-years, he’s been profiled in Forbes, written articles for Futures
Magazine and Barron’s and has been the cover story of Active Trader
Magazine. In 1992, he won the United States Trading Championship, Option
Division, with a gain of 563.8%. Any guesses? Here’s a hint: he’s also a farmer.
That’s right, I’m speaking of none other than Mark Cook, and beginning
Monday, Mark will be writing his column three times a week for TradingMarkets.
 In
The Long-Term Daytrader, authors Michael Sincere and Deron Wagner
say:


“Mark Cook is considered by many to be one of the
best intraday traders in the country.”


Mark will
cover the S&Ps, but since he trades bonds, options and the euro, you can bet
he’ll give you a few insights on these tradeables, as well. I am very excited
about having Mark aboard–please give him a warm welcome. Look for Mark’s column
between 11 AM and Noon ET, MWF.

The New, Improved
TradersWire

If you haven’t been in TradersWire for a while,
swing by next week–you’ll be pleasantly surprised. We’ve made a lot of changes,
including precise buy and sell alerts on stocks and E-minis and Mini-sized Dow
contracts, expanded education and trading tips. And as always, there are some
good traders in the chat room. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve learned a lot
from some of these traders through the years, and I’m willing to bet you could
learn something, too. So come on by, we’ll
see you in
TradersWire
on Monday!
