What is The Saxon Institute?

The Saxon Institute is the fruition of my twenty-five years of trading experience as well as experience of how the industry works.

What I mean is – as in every profession – there is the basic information and knowledge that my experience has profited me and I hope to present, through the Institute, that body of experience in an organized manner.

I have decided to make The Saxon Institute a web based platform for the purpose of being informational and educational to traders specifically.

The Web Site is in production now and has been for some time. It will be published to the web soon. I take my work seriously and wish it to be beneficial to all traders of equity indexes and index options.

The Web site will be a work in progress for 2008 and will develop quickly as original content is added daily.

Stay tuned, the announcement will be made on this FB 2.0 Trade blog.

3.18.08 4.15 Settlement Emini / Sp500


Due to it being Fed Day, I decided not to trade today.

We entered the day flat, no trades, and we concluded the day flat.

42% return in 45 days as Traffic and Interest Spike

Dear Reader,

While we await the FED this afternoon, I am going to take this opportunity to thank all my viewers.

When I started to record and document the FB 2.0 Trade, it was intended to be for a few that were interested in knowing the buy and sell levels real-time.

After being up over 18% in February, and now up more than 25% month -to-date in March, the traffic (people stopping by the Blog) has increased dramatically and constantly. Everyday we have more visitors than the day before - excluding weekends.

Apparently there is a an interest in making 43% on your money in a month and a half.

I have always been a professional trader and handy with computers; but this blogging thing is new to me and many said I should have a website. Really I began this blog as a lark and used one of my trading vehicles the FB 2.0 (Dubbed the Fishbone by users) as the shell around which to become proficient at blogging. But it has turned into something different and (in a word) exciting for me. So I appreciate the emails and comments.

And again thanks to all of you that are making my blogging experience enjoyable.

(By the way, I hope the entry levels have been helpful to you.)

I will be back today with further posts.
