• Learn to Trade Commodities

  • I started trading over twenty years ago and have found that it’s the most exciting business I’ve ever been in. Yes, I said business. It’s not a game; it’s a business. If you don’t treat it like a business, you are doomed from the start. So, if you want to learn to trade commodities then you are at the right place.

  • Learn to Trade Commodities by David Duty

    My complete commodities course is designed to help you learn to trade, but it, as well as all other courses out there, has its limitations. This course is a starting place, not an end-all. You must study the material in this book over and over until you grasp it, and then you must study and learn other techniques being taught.

    In my reference section in the course, you will have books to choose from to further your education. Each and every one has something of value. There are many ways to learn how to trade, and this course is just a starting place for most.

  • Some other people who sell courses will tell you that their course is all you will ever need to be a full-time, successful trader. Or, that they have a trading “system” that is 99% accurate and has won 499 of the last 500 trades. Hogwash! There is no one course that will teach you everything you need to know in order to trade successfully, mine included and there is not ANY trading system that is profitable long term. If there is I’ve never seen it and I’ve been trading since 1995. I do feel that my courses have a vast amount of useful information. My students have told me that they learned more from my courses than from any other courses they have ever taken; some of which cost several thousand dollars.

  • Get In or Get Out of Trading

    “If You Can’t Get 100% Into What You’re Doing, Then You’d Better Get 100% Out Of What You’re Doing.” (Quote From Zig Zigler) 

    Before I learned (yes, I said learned again) to trade, I had several different businesses. Some were successful, some not so successful, and some went straight down the tubes along with more money than I care to remember. Even with that said I was still considered a successful business person. But one day I looked at what I was doing with my life, and discovered I wasn’t happy, wasn’t satisfied, and I wasn’t making the kind of money I thought I should be for the time I was spending. Ever been there? It’s called “burnout.” That’s when I decided to get 100% out of what I was doing. But I didn’t think I had many choices at the time. Little did I know that my life was about to change, and change in a big way. 

    I was introduced to trading through an offer in the mail, and like many others, bought a mail order course. I learned enough to be dangerous. I thought that was all I needed to know because the author told me that his course was “All I ever needed to know.”  Boy, oh boy, was I wrong. I hadn’t even learned the basics but jumped in anyway and started trading. I won’t go into all the details, but I will say that I “paid” over $10,000 for that $200 course. This is one of the reasons I wrote, and teach, this course: so that others don’t do the stupid things that I did when I first started trading. 

    I later learned that the person who put out that course was a great promoter, but his trading methods were a far cry from what someone needed to know to trade for a living. I then went to work reading and studying everything I could about commodities. I invested the time to learn. I invested in good books. I invested in good tapes, good videos, and spent a year studying and paper-trading. Paper-trading is simply trading an account on paper, without using real money. It’s a great learning tool. 

    What I found is that most of the books and courses talk about many of the same things, they just explain it in a little different way. That’s when I realized that there are some basic principles, rules, if you will, that anyone can learn, and once you do, like others before you, you can become a successful trader. 

    The intent of my courses are to teach you many of the basics, and to give you a good foundation to build on. Learning anything is a continuing process, and the longer and harder you work at it, the better you become. 

    I hope you enjoy and learn from my writings and my courses. It has been an ongoing “labor of love”. 

    I hate to be repetitive but if you want to learn to trade commodities you found the right place. After all, it’s called Common Sense Commodities for a reason.
