What others in the
industry think of CTCR:
alphabetically by commentator)
is a fantastic service for the futures consuming public. Even
if I have to die by the sword, I think that by participating it
imposes a discipline which I think is both necessary and appreciated."
Colin Alexander, Five Star Futures Newsletter
provides the futures market investor, both professional and novice,
with a source of information and source of honest information
which is unavailable almost anywhere else. The product reviews
and the analysis of market gurus and trading systems is difficult
to find in other publications and CTCR does a wonderful
job of covering those areas."
Hafer, Commodity Research Bureau/Bridge
a fine bunch of people. I think you provide a good service. Your
star performer is Norm Winski. I'm a friend of Norm's. He does
quite well. In fact, he was the one who encouraged me to let you
track me. My fear about being followed was that it was a friend
of a friend of a friend hyping things. I have found that your
tracking is accurate and you are friendly people and don't seem
to have any biases one way or the other. I think it's a good service
Hannula, Cash in on Chaos
put a lot of time, effort, and energy to make sure you putting
quality stuff in front of the people. That's one of the things
I like and respect."
Jerry Hodges, Security Market Research
"I have subscribed
to literally hundreds of financial newsletters over the years.
I currently read about fifty different letters each month covering
the markets. CTCR is unquestionably the best-written
market letter that I receive. I look forward to receiving each
issue because of its high quality coverage and professional consistency."
Charlie Hooper, Editor and publisher, The Mutual Fund
Strategist newsletter, and manager of over $100 million in
mutual fund assets.
of all, I want to say that your publication is fantastic. I hope
that because you are very visible and Bruce Babcock was very low
key in terms of his visibility in the industry. I've already seen
you on CNBC numerous times and in Futures Magazine and that's
an area where Bruce hadn't been in many years. I've be very happy
to help you in any way to increase the visibility of CTCR because
if we, as an industry, can get a publication which can rival the
Hulbert Financial Digest in terms of getting the public to look
at one particular area for good analysis in terms of what's available
in the industry for advisory services, I can't help but think
that the whole industry will be better off by having an independent
auditing source like yourself."
Dennis Minogue - Minogue Hotline
Smith is a good guy.
I think it's a very good magazine. It's very useful for people
who want to learn how to trade because it gives informational
interviews, it gives honest reviews of products (which is very
rare in this industry). You and Bruce also aren't afraid to say
something is a piece of shit if something is a piece of shit and
not just endorse something to make friends with the guy. The centerfold
is very useful for somebody who wants to evaluate following different
advisors. You've got unbiased records and somebody can see what
everyone is doing relative to each other and the industry. Who's
making money consistently and who's not. For the meager amount
of money you charge, you get an awful lot of information."
Russell Sands, Turtle Talk
is one of the very few financial newsletters to which I subscribe.
I find it both enjoyable and informative."
Jack Schwager, Director of Futures Research at Prudential
Securities, best-selling author of Market Wizards, and
futures money manager.
no better way to keep in touch on what's going on in terms of
performance, ideas, and new methodology than Commodity Traders
Consumer Reports. But to keep abreast of things like that
and who's up and who's down and what's happening. Not quite like
Club 3000, where people just bitch and moan, you really
try to keep people abreast of what's happening. If you want to
keep you finger on the heartbeat of what's happening in the futures
industry in terms of performance, new methodologies, new systems,
and ideas, you should be a subscriber."
Larry Williams, Commodity Timing
provides an invaluable service in that it documents and monitors
the performance of well known trading advisors."
