A Legitimate Multi-Trillion Dollar
Market at Your Fingertips
The Treasury bond futures market is a 24-hour cash monster of more than $45 trillion! The best part about this market is you can start making money fairly quickly.
I know what you’re thinking:
“That sounds great Marc, but what about someone with limited cash or “smarts.'”
It’s simple….. I started trading T-bond futures as a newlywed. My bank account was so small I was charged a minimum balance fee each month!
But that didn’t stop me! What’s more, I was an average student in school. So you can scratch “smart” off the list.
But I’ve developed a passion to learn how to make money as an entrepreneur, and this has made all the difference.
How a ‘Pro Card-Counter’ Stumbled Across This SHOCKING Back-Office Secret
Don’t worry, this isn’t about gambling, but my dark past played a big part in the discovery I’d like to explain to you here.
Sometimes it takes a new pair of eyes to crack an old problem; an outsider. Someone who can identify number patterns, odds, and in this case, computer code (don’t worry, you don’t have to have this ability to succeed at this! I’ve done all the hard work for you).

My training in the T-bond market came at the hands of a successful entrepreneur, so I guess I was in the right place at the right time.
I’m going to pass this same knowledge on to you! My friend, P.R., showed me how to trade without having to move to Chicago or New York (where two major exchanges are physically located).
But that’s not all…..
P.R. showed me how to limit my downside risk by applying a technique professional trader’s use. I’ll show you the technique.
What’s more, trading T-bond futures is a blast – especially with access to a boatload of information on the Internet. Granted, you’ll be competing with savvy T-bond traders with very, deep pockets, so you’re at a disadvantage.
But it’s a fairly level playing field. And if you learn how professional traders play this game you’ll be in a much better position to profit.
Armed with the information I’ll give you today you’ll have similar opportunities to make a living in this business just like the pros.
You Can Make Money in This Market with Limited Resources
There are ways to make money in this market even if you have limited resources.
Today, there are contracts designed for smaller speculators called “mini” contracts. These were not available when I started trading. You can also slash your risk exposure with T-Bond ETFs (exchange traded funds). If you Google this term you’ll find dozens of viable ETFs from which to choose.
But in order to profit in this $45 trillion market and actually remove money from it, you’ll need to understand how the game is played. And you can’t learn everything in 15 minutes.
Be patient and take the time to learn how this market works. When you open a trading account with a brokerage, you’ll see a lot of “fine print” in the application. But it’s the same level of fine print when you open a bank account or buy a piece of property.
Don’t let the fine print discourage you from starting this business and making money!
Please don’t kid yourself.
There is a risk of losing money in this business.
Please don’t claim I never pointed out the risks. However, this business has less risk than many other businesses. Here’s what I mean…..
On the front page of an Orlando newspaper recently there was a story about a man from Poland who purchased a motel near Walt Disney World.
The gentleman purchased the motel for “almost a million dollars”. He’s owned it for about a year – and the business was (in his words) “breaking even.”
Then he was robbed at gunpoint by a 20 year-old kid waving a 357 magnum handgun in his face. Have you ever looked into the barrel of a 357 magnum? If so, you know how terrified the motel owner must have been!
The motel owner was shaking a week later as he described the incident. He also decided to build a bullet proof encasement around the check-in counter for protection in the future.
That is my definition of a high risk business opportunity. This is not going to happen when you’re trading T -bonds. Granted, this business is not stress free.
But, at least you won’t be investing a million dollars into a venture that might break even … or have a drug crazed addict waving a 357 magnum in your face.
Anyway, there is a financial risk trading T-bonds.
But if you can limit your downside risk and have a way for consistently removing profits you’ll be fine.
The bond market – also known as the debt, credit, or fixed income market – is a financial market where participants buy and sell debt securities. The size of the international bond market is an estimated $45 trillion.
What Are T- Bond Futures? How Do You Trade Them?
A futures contract is a standardized contract, traded on a futures exchange, to buy or sell a certain underlying asset at a certain date in the future at a pre-set price.
The buy or sell date is called the delivery date or final settlement date. The pre-set price is called the futures price. The price of the underlying asset on the delivery date is called the settlement price. The settlement price normally converges toward the futures price on the delivery date.
Stay with me now…
A futures contract gives the holder the obligation to buy or sell an asset like corn, gold, currencies, or, in this case, Treasury bonds. Both parties of a “futures contract” must fulfill the contract on the settlement date.
The seller delivers the asset to the buyer – or, if it is a cash-settled future like T- bonds, cash is transferred from the futures trader who sustained the loss to the one who made the profit.
It’s that simple.
To exit the commitment prior to the settlement date, the holder of a futures position has to offset his position by either selling a long position or buying back a short position, effectively closing out the futures position and its contract obligations.
Futures contracts – usually just called futures – are traded electronically on almost every financial exchange in the world with a system called GLOBEX.
The exchange’s clearinghouse acts as counterparty on all contracts, sets margin requirements, etc. You’ll find current futures settlement prices in just about every national newspaper that has a finance section and on any viable financial website.
An Insider Trading Secret
Heads I Win, Tails I Win
Before I explain further, let me strongly emphasize something: this is NOT one of those trading systems that recklessly gambles on a 50/50 chance!
I’m not participating in the silly ‘losers game’. The game where one person is betting against the other or where one person is selling a stock, currency or commodity and the other buying.
It doesn’t matter which way the price goes- up or down. As long as there’s significant volatility in the price, I make money.

Amateur traders in practically every financial market usually become intoxicated after a large winning trade. What’s more, novice traders often feel bulletproof after a winning trade.
As a result, they don’t know how or when to stop and take their profits. But seasoned professional traders approach the market with a calm, deliberate assurance.
Plus, the most successful traders have learned markets are predictable (to a degree). Every market tends to move in cycles, trends or waves.
Check out Elliott Wave International for some great insight. The insider trading secret many T-bond traders use is simple to understand.
The idea is to leverage your positions through a series of four trades. Then you remove your profits and start over again … small.
A Hypothetical T-Bond Trade
Okay, let’s do a hypothetical trade using this insider trading secret.
If you can picture an inverted (upside-down) pyramid in your mind, you’ll have an idea of what this trading approach is all about. Let’s say that you believe T-bond futures are going to rise dramatically because of tension in the Middle East, massive mortgage defaults, or some other reason.
So you buy one October 2010 T-bond futures contract “At the market” (the current market price). This is the first of four series of trades.
Your assumption proves correct – and the October 2010 T-bond futures contract takes off.
The next step is to sell one October 2010 T-bond contract “at the market” – and when that order is filled, you buy two October 2010 T-bond contracts. This is the second trade in a series of four.
Okay, let’s say the T-bond market continues higher, and now you sell the two October 2010 T-bond futures contracts at the market.
When that order is filled, you purchase three October 2010T-bond futures contracts at the market. This is the third trade in a series of four trades.
Do you see the pattern here? On paper, it’ll look like an inverted pyramid.
Each time you increase the number of contracts that you buy or sell, your profit or loss will increase exponentially as well.
In this hypothetical trade, we have so far completed three trades in our four -trade series.
Now we’re going to sell all three October 2010 T-bond futures contracts at the market. When that order is filled, we’ll buy four October 2010 T-bond futures contracts at the market.
In the real world, markets do not go straight up or straight down indefinitely.
But for this hypothetical example, let’s say the October 2010 T-bond futures price continues to surge.
So, finally, we’ll sell all four October 2010 T-bond futures contracts at the market – completing a series of four trades.
Now we’re going to remove most of our profits from the market – whether it’ s $5,000, $10,000, $20,000, or whatever – and put that money into a separate account.
Then we’re going to do another series of four trades.
But each time, we’re going to start over again small.
And that’s an important thing to remember.
Most amateur traders “Let it ride” – like they’ re high rollers in Las Vegas. (And 95% of the people who gamble in Las Vegas lose – and most of them lose a lot more than they are willing to admit to.)
But we’re approaching T-bond futures trading like a professional. A professional trader leaves the table with some money in his pocket – whereas amateurs usually leave shell-shocked and broke.
The insider secret and trading strategy that I’ve outlined today has probably produced more millionaires than any other system.
And keep in mind that we were using minimal trading positions in our example.
Top traders use this insider technique by trading hundreds of contracts in each four-trade series before they remove all their profits … and start over again small.
That’s exactly how to make money by trading T-bonds like the big boys. This strategy also enables you to limit your risk, because you won’t be “pyramiding” your positions indefinitely. You’ll have a very specific way to limit your open positions.
Trading T-bond futures won’t be an ideal business for every entrepreneur. (For one thing, some trading capital is required.)
And, make no mistake about it, there’s a lot more to understanding this market and business than what I’ve shared with you today. That’s why I’ve included a bunch of additional resources for you at the end of this issue.
But you can make money – a lot of money – whether T-bond prices go up or down. It’s definitely worth looking into.
