The following is a copy of the "Introduction".
This is a major work; it was written due to the interest
that "How to Make Money in the Futures Market...
and Lots of It" created in 1978 and subsequent
years. Drummond did not expect much interest in this
work, since he regarded this analysis merely as a
reasonably interesting form of analysis only.
will let this book speak for itself. I do not wish
to influence the purchaser, as to how U will approach
this book. We are all big boys and girls now, and
make decisions for ourselves. If U have any questions,
please do not hesitate to write. I most certainly
intend to write to U. It is not my intent to offer
this book to U, and then to forget about it. It will
take time for U to grasp all that is in this manual,
and we also have many years down the road of commodity
trading. If U wish to walk down the same road, I shall
see U on route.
the way, if U are a busy person, U may find too much
in this manual for the moment. But, put it on the
shelf .... U may find it invaluable as the years pass
by. Which brings me to a point. When I decided to
write this manual, I decided that I wud cram it pretty
full, rather than piece-meal the info out over the
years, as a sort of career in systems writing, and
if it is too much, that is not my problem. Also, I
wud like to mention that many, many people have written
to me, asking that I give seminars. Well, I decided
on something that wud give a whole year's worth of
study to the purchaser, rather than a week-end 20-30
page,sit-in. Much more for the money this way, I shud
think. Also, I am serious about restricting sales,
as U can probably gather. The thrust of this is that
I will be physically able to maintain contact with
this manual's students.
style is meant to be a bit wandering and friendly.
I think I won with that decision. Restricted sales,
also means that I need not be that serious about typing
errors. I caught most of them.
