Mike Vacchi: After trading in the markets part time for several years I gradually gave up my law practice to become a full-time futures trader. I focus primarily on trading the e-Mini using my proprietary Pivot Points, volatility levels and Fibonacci retracements to project price movement. Volatility levels are areas in which buying or selling is likely to become exhausted. Allowing for a reversal of prior direction, or conversely, a breakout above those levels to bring in new buyers or sellers to a market. The use of the volatility levels and pivot points can be equally applied in index trading, energy markets, metals and grains. These levels have been used with great success in chats rooms and with traders and we are proud to bring them to everyone as a part of our Princetontrader Premium Service. I also produce a daily Market Webcast viewed by hundreds of futures traders.

Henry Jennings started his career in financial markets when there were no puts! Back in the early 80′s Henry was an Option Market maker on the London Traded Option Market where he had a successful career before emigrating to Sydney, Australia in 1989 to trade Aussie Equities and Options. Smith New Court poached him back and then followed 7 years with Macquarie Bank rising to Head of Equity trading.
In 2000, Henry left to pursue his own trading and other interests including his own business and to fulfil his ambition to become a professional actor. Following Drama school, the harsh realities of trying to make money from your passion ensured he had to rely on trading and finance, something to do with limited talent I expect.
Recently he was Head of Private Client at a small broking form before joining his present company, Cameron’s Stockbrokers in 2010. His interest and ability in communications has been harnessed with training and mentoring and he now appears regularly as guest host on Sky Business News in Australia.
You can now find Henry at www.bby.com.au
After over 30 years experience in financial markets, he has seen booms and busts and much prefers the booms!

JOHN WARD – THE SLOG
The Slog was founded by John Ward. It is written, edited, published, designed and monitored by John Ward. As a result, John Ward has lost his life, but is working at regaining it over time. The content comes from a variety of sources, almost all of them anonymous, research into data, media contacts whose stories have been spiked, and a rapidly growing army of readers – ‘Sloggers’ – who simply see stuff going on, and write to me about it. As I don’t work for the British police, this means you can write to me without Vladimir Putin knowing about it.

GENERAL GNASHER – Join The General for his weekly informed and always acerbic commentary.
General Gnasher started his career in the City of London just in time for the 1974 secondary banking crisis and associated stock market meltdown. In contrast to today’s version, he remains impressed by how little those events impacted the lives of ordinary people. An early proponent of financial derivatives, he still believes that they can be used to good purpose, and is disappointed that 99 per cent of the time this is not the case. He studied economics before it was understood that all of the work of earlier generations is irrelevant, since we can solve any problem simply by printing lots of money.
