Hey John and the MAD Team, here’s a late Happy New Year!
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.

Thanks to both of you for taking the time to answer me back. I am going to hang in there.
I like your newsletter because the unbiased perspectives you share and the way in which you look at market opportunities in a realistic, factual manner. I am just hoping to turn that advantage into profit and learn.
I don’t like financial advisors as they open your account, offer canned advice, and disappear after they take your money. I want to have the independent skills needed to manage my own wealth, as I grow old.
I don’t expect that to happen overnight or without advice, but I am hoping that your newsletter is something above par not just in appearance, but in results.
Time will tell.
Thank you again for returning my emails. That says a lot.
Best, Ryan Hammond, New York

The confidence you have given me to enter the USD:JPY spot positions have returned me in excess of $1,500,000 in the last few weeks.
I’ll be in California next year.
Can’t wait to catch up. Dinner is on me, both times!
I know you said you aren’t retiring until you’re well into your seventies. Why so soon?

Thank you for the analysis of Nvidia (NVDA). I wouldn’t have looked at them without your analysis.
I got in NVDA at $69 Nov 2 after it dipped 3-5% from the recent top, it exploded up on the 11th Nov, +29% to $88, and eventually made it to $290!
More trade alerts to the people :)

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.
John Thomas reply: Good work Dirk! Let’s meet in Paris again for lunch this July.
I was pondering the latest Trade Alert from MHFT today when my cell rang with a Berkeley, CA 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 this 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 it 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.

Your article on “The Ten Baggers on Solar Energy” is the best, well informed, educated piece of literature I have read for a long time.
Thank you for your honest and well-informed article. I am going to be 86 years YOUNG in coming November and appreciate a simple jewel in this money chasing jungle.
I would like to follow you and learn more new stuff in this fast going and changing world. Thank you.
