The Score Board*
Last updated: 28th September, 2018.

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

In a nut shell I trade futures, help educate others to trade and I'm a futures adviser to wholesale clients. As a trader I trade global index, currency and commodity futures. 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 educational and advisory 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" wholesale 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 wholesale 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).

Successful Money Management

*These Score Board results are hypothetical only, showing the results of trading 1 futures contract per signal. Please be aware hypothetical results DO NOT indicate future success. Hypothetical results may under, or over compensate, for the impact, if any, of certain market conditions, such as but not limited to, poor liquidity, poor execution, competitive or expensive brokerage etc. Traders need to be very aware there is RISK OF LOSS in futures trading. Hypothetical, historic or actual results do not indicate future success.

Disclaimer: Active trading carries a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all people. The high degree of leverage provided by futures can work against you as well as work for you. Before deciding to trade you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your risk capital and therefore you should not trade money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with active trading and seek advice from an independent financial adviser if you have any doubts. Past performance is no assurance of future performance.

Under Chapters 6D and 7 of Australia’s Corporations Act 2001 I am authorised to carry on a financial services business to provide general advice on futures to Australian wholesale clients. Accordingly any opinions, conclusions and or other information expressed by myself do not contain personal advice. Visitors will need to with, or without the assistant of a person licensed to give personal advice, to determine whether any general advice expressed by myself is appropriate for them given their particular needs, financial situation and investment objectives.
