Strengths and Trading Philosophy
Greg prides himself on identifying trends and breakouts and also knowing when to fade the market in a non-trending trading environment. He believes success in trading commodities involves hard work and discipline, as well as a common sense approach toward fundamental and technical analysis, which allows for the utmost flexibility - an essentiality for generating positive cash flow in today's markets. Protecting his clients' principal in such a tumultuous investing arena, is of course, paramount, and he attempts to achieve this by employing stops and being prepared to liquidate unhealthy trades. His strength lies in the ability to remain calm through both adversity and prosperity, creating a solid foundation from which to develop market strategies for his clients.
