Last updated: 24th May, 2017.

Hi I'm Brent Penfold and welcome to my site.

I trade futures and I'm a licensed Futures Adviser. My speciality is trading index and currency futures. In addition I trade a diversified portfolio of 16 markets across 8 market sectors. To put your mind at ease I'd like to say straight up that I'm not an Educator masquerading as a "trader". I am a trader first and foremost. I run this advisory and educational business as an opportunity to occupy my time during the day. Believe it or not trading doesn't take much time or effort once you have found your edge. This "day job" keeps me busy and its a good business.

If you're here looking for that "perfect" newsletter or mechanical trading system then I'm sorry to disappoint you because I don't have them, and nor do I believe they exist. However, I do believe there is a tremendous advantage in following a system which has a statistical edge. Although my newsletters and models aren't "perfect" and will leave you bruised at times, I do believe they have an edge. An edge a disciplined and consistent trader can exploit.

By way of background I first traded futures in 1983. Since then I have gained first-hand experience in all facets of futures whether it be trading, educating, presenting, designing systems or advising. The result of all this is that my site contains over 30 years of practical experience so whether you are new to trading or a veteran, I hope you'll find something of interest and value on

Many thanks for visiting my site and I hope you can take the time to have a good look around. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to send me an email (see below).
