I only hold one live GBE seminar each year - and these events are always fantastic (read some of the testimonials I included with this letter). A group of us get together to delve deep into the markets and build more profitability. And while we're at it, we like to have some fun too!
Two years ago we met on my home turf, in Grants Pass, Oregon. Last year we met in Las Vegas, Nevada.
But this year, I decided to take you to the heart of futures action - Chicago.
I've put a lot of thought into planning the perfect weekend in June, and this promises to be a great time, including field trips!
We'll hold the seminar in exciting downtown Chicago, at a landmark hotel that the New York Times describes as "Luxurious and majestic." We've managed to arrange a nice discount for you from their regular rates, so you'll enjoy all this luxury at an affordable price.
Your tuition covers the Saturday seminar. In addition, we're throwing in some bonus events for those of you who have the time to lengthen your stay in Chicago.
Our time together starts on Friday, June 21, with a bonus field trip that's perfect for traders like you. Our friends at Daniels Trading have offered to give us a tour of the Exchange floor. If you've never seen an Exchange in action, this will be a real treat. Unfortunately, space is limited, so it's first come first served. Daniels Trading is trying to get as many people in as possible, but there IS a limit. So, the sooner you sign-up for the weekend, the better your chance of being able to attend this extra event.
Saturday, June 22, we'll really get down to business for a full-day seminar at our hotel. I'm calling the seminar "All About Spread Strategies," and this is what makes this particular weekend so thrilling. I am going to introduce you to a method of trading you've likely never seen before: spread trading futures contracts based on the difference in price between contracts. But more about that in a minute.
On Saturday evening, everyone will enjoy a gourmet Chicago-style dinner that we'll host in one of the city's great restaurants.
Finally, Sunday, June 23, is all about fun. For our second bonus we're renting a Roof Top at Wrigley Field where we'll watch the Cubs play the Astros. If you love baseball, or even if you don't, this will be a super experience.
Of course, the heart of the weekend will be my "All About Spread Strategies" seminar. We'll start at the very beginning, so don't worry if you're new to trading - I'll make sure everyone is up to speed before I proceed.
As I always do, I'll start off the seminar with a review of essential trading principles, a discussion of the psychology of trading, and an explanation of money management.
- Then I'll launch into my introduction to this special kind of spread trading that offers so many advantages:
Perfect for the trader with a small account
Once you're in a spread like this you can profit no matter which way the market goes - up, down, or even if it stalls in sideways action
Your margin is drastically reduced - sometimes as low as a few hundred dollars on both contracts. And that means you can have multiple positions
These trade set-ups are a natural hedge so you have less risk
You are actually doing position trading, joining the ranks of Warren Buffett and George Soros - and you know that they are experts when it comes to raking in the profits!
You can take advantage of powerful seasonal tendencies
You don't always need to wait for a trigger to enter these trades, so you can plan and execute a trade at your leisure
Offers the leverage of futures contracts
Eliminates having to trade with stops. Therefore you are not subject to manipulators running stops, and you need not be worried about liquidity or slippage
You enjoy reduced risk without having to pay for time premium as you would when trading options
Offers a superior way to trade compared to regular futures trading in that you have better risk management and margin efficiency
After I thoroughly explain what this trading method is all about, we'll go through charts of current markets looking for today's opportunities and analyzing possible trades along with entries and exits. You'll learn how to read futures spread charts to identify chart patterns you're already familiar with.
- You will learn how to:
Use two special indicators to help time your entries and exits
Use trend lines to your advantage
Pyramid positions for large profit potential
As always, I'll keep my explanations simple and straightforward. My presentation won't be highly technical or go into sophisticated methodology. I promise - you can do this!
I've been using spreads like this more and more in trading because of the many benefits they offer, but some Course Members may be intimidated by the sound of them. Don't be! You should be taking advantage of these highly effective trading techniques.
I want to make sure you understand and feel completely comfortable using these spread strategies. So, during our time together I'll take you through all the ins and outs of this terrific new way to trade. You'll soon be able to make the best use of this remarkable technique. On Monday morning you'll have a complete trading plan in place and you'll be ready to set it in motion.

"I have been to 2 seminars, most recently Las Vegas in July, 2012. The seminar was packed with so much information and any issues that had to be taken up were resolved quickly. The big benefit of going to the seminars is that you get to meet people just like you who are in the same battles with the markets. A lot of times friends and family just don't get it, because they are not as into it as you are. It's very nice to meet face to face with the people whom have been very instrumental in your trading education (CRB/US Charts Team) and your fellow course members. The sharing and networking if you want to is priceless."

"Have been a GBE member for a while now and decided to go to the Las Vegas seminar to learn some new tricks and meet Jim and the counselors. They are service oriented, knowledgeable, friendly and make you feel comfortable about the whole trading process. I was not disappointed."
- Jim M.,
Huntington Beach, CA
"Jim does a great job of teaching in an easy to understand format. The manuals are very concise and easy to understand. It is also helpful to talk with other course members and course counselors and get their input. A seminar is the only place you can do that. I would highly recommend . . . the seminars."
- Charles B.,
North Adams, MA
"I will always remember the kindness and care that has been shown to me at GBE. . . . When I went in person for a seminar they carefully assisted all my special needs - down to my strange diet and eating habits. When one is chronically ill, it is special to be able to experience normal activities. The staff at GBE went the extra mile for me to make sure I was comfortable and accommodated - without ever once seeming condescending. Anyone with special needs or disabilities should feel welcomed and comforted that this company will treat you with respect."
- Dedra S.,

"I'm pretty sure, like me, you've been to a lot of seminars. [This] seminar was real different, an eye-opener for me. At the end, I could only think of one word to describe it, 'Wow.' Where should I begin? Jim Prince is ultra high energy and has a terrific volume of knowledge and insight to share. It's fun to meet him. But even more fun is how he literally pours-out all that information into your brain non-stop. And Jim has only one, sincere, goal in mind - to make you and me a better, more successful trader. My experience was that the seminar jump-started my trading because it increased my knowledge, gave me new strategies and perspectives. . . . Jim Prince, Trader Jim, the original energizer bunny of trading, the wizard of GBE, goes head to head with you, virtually stuffing proven knowledge, wisdom, strategies, insights, and a lot more than you even expected into that brain of yours. It's worth it. Until they come out with an invention that connects a wire to download from his brain to your brain, this is the next best thing. Seriously, get this Seminar, it will improve your trading, you'll be able to sleep nights because you'll actually know what you're doing and it will payoff for you."
- Dennis S.,
San Diego, CA
"Being new to the subject, we were unsure about attending a seminar where we anticipated others would be more knowledgeable, experienced, and possibly less accepting of newbies. We are really happy that we decided to attend, our experience could not have been more different. The atmosphere was very comfortable, friendly, and supportive. Jim's style of educating was very well received and really enhanced our learning experience. . . . We are now very focused on studying the materials we received and using the knowledge to enhance our option trading experiences."
- Len and Nancy H.,
". . . a true success in every aspect. The venue was outstanding and the GBE Seminar was definitely well organized, quite intense and very professional. I enjoyed every moment of it. . . . The material you provided was evidently based on a lot of significant work and solid expertise. I am still using it as a reference for my commodity directional and non-directional trades, which are providing very good returns."
- Giacomo M.,
"I was struggling with my trading business and needed a new direction and attitude to start to trade in and this is what I found at the seminar. . . . I developed a more disciplined way of trading and so far it seems to be working for me."
- Rocco P.,
New Milford, CT
"[This] Seminar was one of the best I've attended and I've been to many over the years in real estate, self improvement, and various other fields all over the U.S. It was very professionally done, well planned, and informative."
