Mr. Mad Hedge Fund!

This is an old B-52 pilot with over 325 combat missions in Vietnam, flying out of Guam, Okinawa and Thailand, and the past Air Force Wing Commander of the Bomb Wing on Guam 1981-1983.

I am extremely pleased to have happened onto your website and, thusly, I have canceled some other subscriptions, narrowing myself down to only two!

Your bio has to be one of the most interesting reads that will ever exist relative to what all you have accomplished in life!

Have a great day!

So glad I ran across your site--have a great evening!!

I was pondering an FXE trade alert from MHFT today when my cell rang with a Berkeley, California area code. Since I know a couple people in that part of the world, I answered, and it was none other than John Thomas.


Had I not heard his voice on the MHFT webinars, I would have thought I was being conned. But given that I'm in the last month of a trial run, he actually called to find out how I was doing with the service and what I thought.

Here's the short version of what I told him.

I'm a pretty experienced investor, but definitely not sophisticated when it comes to using options or, for that matter, trading currencies and commodities.

My first trade with MHFT - a (FXY) vertical call spread - literally scared the hell out of me, so I used a tiny position size. I think I made around $900 ($400 more than my trial subscription, so there's that).

But through the process of using John's trade ideas, I learned. Fast. Nothing will help you grasp the potential of option strategies like doing them. And as I write this, I have multiple positions on courtesy of MHFT that are on track to deliver double-digit percentage gains in a matter of weeks!

I can't quite comprehend how he knows so many well-placed people, but he's incredibly adept at grabbing insights from them, turning these into an investment thesis, and making it incredibly clear and actionable to his reader base.

One day he's writing about a chat with a three-star general and the next you're buying a call spread on Palo Alto Networks (PANW). He connects the dots in a ridiculously useful way.

But it's more than just the idea; it's the timing of the idea. The world is full of people who can say, "Hey, cyber-security is a big deal." Or, "Wow, the euro is getting killed." But the actual trade execution to profit from that in the near term? He's freaky good.

I also love the defined exit strategy. Look, if you're the most disciplined human on the planet and never let a bad trade turn into a long term "investment," more power to you.

I am not. I hate when I do it, but it's happened more than once. With MHFT, the exit is well marked. You can't miss it. Personally, I find that removes significant stress, not to mention risk.

Today, I was over at my local Schwab office - before John called - and was raving about MHFT. Not stark raving. Good raving. I'd be surprised if they aren't signing up for a trial as I write this.

John, thanks for the call. That was a really nice surprise.

But, more importantly, thanks for great work, thinking and ideas. Enjoy your travels, and I look forward to meeting you at one of your conferences.

Dear John,

I hope you remember me. We once met at a luncheon in Paris a number of summers ago.

Thank you for the suggestion you made during the January 31 webinar about the launch of the Mad Hedge Technology Letter. After the first issue I bought Micron Technology (MU).

I bought two July $39 Calls for $7.80 and two January 2019 $37 Calls for $11.40. On February 26, I sold one of the July calls for $11.00 (+40.7%) and today the second for $15.70 (+100.0%) for a total profit of $1,105.51.

I still have an unrealized profit of $1,718 on the January 2019 calls. So, if I sell those now I will have earned $2000 with this trade.

We once met at a very scarcely attended luncheon in Paris a number of summers ago.

Kind regards,

Dirk

John Thomas reply: Good work Dirk! Let's meet in Paris again for lunch this July.

I have been in the money management business for 35 years and really enjoy your service.

I just want to say that the way you handled the start of the year which was a combination of exploiting opportunities from an oversold market combined with your overall risk mitigation strategies was not only brilliant but profitable as well.

I am up on the year and glad to have not participated in the insanity of a market short-term meltdown.

Moreover, one of the reasons I like your service so much is I am prohibited from making specific stock buys/sells without permission from our trading desk in NY and that can take time as well as prohibitions within days of earnings announcements or if the firm is buying/selling.

So using market indices through ETFs is not only helpful and productive, but outright brilliant.

So a million thanks again!

I cannot give higher marks to John's style of approaching the market. My wife has learned so much from him that we are actually having conversations about the global economy. Wow! You will learn money management, the concept of risk versus reward, and how to take advantage of trades that are worth taking.

Thanks John!

I'm happy to renew my subscription to The Mad Hedge Fund Trader. This current, very perplexing market demands a coach advising you on what it is doing.

If you do not step up to the plate and hit what is being pitched you will not succeed. The same is true with this market.

With a personal 35+ years of investing, some as a professional, I do not know of anyone that can interpret this confusing market better than John Thomas.

He has led me to some singles, occasional doubles and more than once led me to hit it right out of the park (+440% in the Jan FXE puts!).

The occasional high hard one coming straight at you can be painful, like with the (TBT), but it is all part of the game! You make nothing by sitting on the bench.

Keep them coming John.

Hey John,

Bought a leap on LRCX. It's up over 50% in one day. My account is small,
but I'm up 26% in two months. Take a look at this screen shot:

Well done Andrew. The student becomes the teacher.

Thanks for the great newsletter and advice. I truly enjoy it. You are one of a kind!

Credits to you as my financial navigator, as I am finally making some serious money, after years of doing it the hard and wrong way.

 

Kind regards

Hey John and the MAD Team, here's an early Happy New Years!

You really nailed and keep nailing great reversals and trends that are just beginning to deserve a watchful eye. I nailed it today, so far, just buying the JPY pairs, and shorting the big bond, this past couple weeks?

I'm still a bit stuck on futures, but I realize the safety in your spreads is a lot smarter...Thx for all you know and for all you do.

I have always had a passion for the markets and the Mad Hedge Fund Trader gave me the courage to make my first trade. At the time I was unemployed and put in everything I could scrape together - about ten thousand dollars.

For me this was a free education, as the profits would pay for all the books and the fees. My father gave me some money as a gift, while telling me "I was crazy" following "some guy" off the Internet.

Every suggestion I have taken religiously. I follow all your lead indicators from the Shanghai stock market to Dr. Copper and the jobless claims.

Over the last couple of months I have started doing my own successful options trades based on the extra suggestions you give in the webinars and commentaries. Often, I do a trade and ten minutes later an alert comes.

My father who is worried about his future (like so many of us) is now joining the program. I am going to assist him with his first trades.

Another family member has asked me to manage his money. I really feel you are helping me become a hedge fund manager with this fantastic program.
