What's your futures trading blood type?

This is a commodities trading e-book published by LEVEX Capital Management's President Ilan Levy-Mayer. In it he shares a way for futures traders to determine their futures trading "blood type" and how it may be matched with their "trading diet." He defines the different commodities trading blood types he's observed, from those who simply aren't suited for futures trading to those who over trade and cannot take positions home with them. He then recounts two very different situations in which he worked with commodities traders who were able to change their futures trading styles, but had to first recognize their flaws and then figure out how to go about adjusting them to optimize their commodities trading.

This e-book is opinion and is not meant to be taken as fact or futures trading advice, but rather to help you take an introspective assessment of yourself as a futures trader.
