Now in Sydney you have a once in a Life-Time Opportunity to learn
the skills of a Day Trader & learn from a truly experienced trader.
successful trader must make a psychological commitment to win,
while, at the same time, controlling our two most pervasive and
potentially destructive emotions -- fear and greed,” explains
“Luck takes a back seat to personal discipline, skills and
historically-valid strategies in trading.”
Bernstein's training -- and the absence of any significant
literature exploring the “psychology of the trader” -- prompted him
in 1982 to write what has become a classic text on trader
psychology, The Investor's Quotient.
In addition, he has authored a veritable library of reference works
on trading and analyzing the commodity futures markets. His 30+
books appeal to the full spectrum of investors --- from the novice
to the seasoned speculator, professional trader and chartist.
He also has written articles in numerous trade publications,
including Barron's Financial Weekly, Futures
Magazine and Money Maker. His
skills as a teacher, market analyst and educator are ranked highly
by attendees at his many seminars. His keen ability to pinpoint
market trend changes well in advance, and to develop market timing
and trend indicators, are matched only by his continual quest to
tame the futures markets. He is now a very popular Contributor to
REAL MONEY, The Street & Booyah!
These assets have helped him develop pioneering methodologies in
market forecasting, cyclical patterns and seasonal indicators. His
proprietary published trading techniques include: Jake Bernstein's
Key-Date Seasonal Analysis, the Daily Sentiment Index and the MAC
Method, as well as short- and intermediate-term day trading and
long-term trading approaches, based on market patterns.
Bernstein is president and CEO of MBH Commodity Advisors, Inc. in
Winnetka, Illinois, as well as Chief Market Strategist and publisher
of the MBH Weekly Futures Trading Letter,
published continuously since 1972. This comprehensive weekly 8-page
letter provides education as well as insightful market analyses and
His daily trading HOTLINES give specific recommendations. The MBH
newsletter is read worldwide by traders in all areas of market
participation, including new and experienced traders alike as well
as banks, agri-business, floor traders, brokerage firms, money
managers, and others.
Jake Bernstein's skills, candid approach to educating traders, as
well as his in-depth market analyses, have made him a much sought
after speaker, guest lecturer, and market commentator. He has
appeared on national radio and television, including
Wall Street Week, CNBC, JagFN.TV, WebTV.com
and is frequently quoted in the financial press.
Bernstein's comments and observations on the commodity markets
have been presented in speeches to premier groups the world over,
including the Chicago Board of Trade Feed Manufacturers Association,
The Foundation for the Study of Cycles, Commodities Educational
Institute, COMEX, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Toronto
and Montreal stock exchanges.

Good Morning Jake,
I have Known you and met you for the first time through my
Dad when I was in high school back in 1986. I have always
played by the rules and will one day be proud as I continue
to progress with what you have taught me to know that I have
succeeded in a moral and ethical manner by what you have
Take a man fishing, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish,
feed him for life.
All I can say is Thank you for the education you have given
me over the years and I hope you will continue to provide
such for many many long and Healthy years to come. It would
also be an honor for me to attribute my success back to a
phenomenal mentor if I one day write a book which I am very
Thank you again and you are doing a phenomenal job.
Respectfully and Good Trading,
Mark & Joann Bucaro
Since I started my sessions with you I have made
about 12,000. Since I started with 8,000 I think I have done well thanks for all
your help. There was a new indicator you where talking about but had not got it
started yet so I did not learn about it, is it to late for you to tell me about
it. Thanks for all your help,

here are some recent testimonals...all valid and
documented, verifiable and unsolicited
i have many more if you want them
It's hard to contain my enthusiasm for what you have given me.
As a novice trader I was very excited to be accepted into Jake Bernsteins
Mentoring Program. I had been trading before I studied under Jake, but
unfortunately was losing more money than I was making. I was stopped out of most
of my trades trying to keep a "good" risk/reward ratio. I learned a whole
different risk management approach with Jake.
Since I work full time, I cant sit in front of a monitor all day to tweak my
trades. Jake assured me that was no problem and suggested that it might even be
better for me.
The one-on-one relationship was informative, enjoyable, practical, and
financially profitable. I had two goals going into the mentoring program. First
I wanted to earn back the cost of the program before completion. Second, I
wanted to become a proficient and profitable trader.
The mentoring program far exceeded my expectations! Jake laughed when I told him
I was making money hand over fist. He assured me, Thats what were supposed to
I found Jake to be very patient and immediately responsive. Our phone sessions
were always productive, and we usually had a few laughs together as well. At
times, Jake called me between sessions to make certain I was on track.
Thankfully, he also bailed me out of a couple of self-inflicted trading
How did I do with my $10,000 account? It grew to $40,000 in four months. I dont
see how you could listen to what Jake says and not make money in the markets.
100% true testimonial from a client who wants complete anonymity not even his
i have documentation on file
I have just prepared a brief summary of my trading results for the last quarter
of 2004 and wanted to pass this along to you as proof that your time spent
training me last summer was worthwhile.
Total trades 12 (Seasonals and Momentum Divergence)
Winners 9 (Avg. profit/trade: $775)
Losers 3 (Avg. loss/trade: $760)
With the exception of 1, these were all trades entered prior to your December
seminar that I attended. This has translated into a 19% increase in my account
for the period.
These are results I could never have achieved prior to contacting you and will
confirm that my confidence is at a level that I have never experienced before.

Subject: COT Report
Good morning, thanks for your call last night, sorry I cannot spend 12 weeks
with Jake it would be a great thing if I had the time.
The question I had on the COT report, my broker told me that they where
reporting new index fund buying as commercial and not as large spec trading. He
got his information from ADM. IF this is true would this not change how we think
about the COT report?
Last spring when the markets where going good I decided one day to sell
approximately 40% of my crop, and hedge 45000 bu. of corn. This was against
everyone's thinking, even my broker did not want to do this. The signals Jake
told about when I was with him said this was the top. I was really nervous
second guessing myself. But I had put my plan together tried to ignor everyone
else and went to work on my farm. The first day not much happened, but by the
second the market started moving my way, and now we all know I was right. I had
missed the high by two days. I averaged 2.91 for my corn last year. The best
year financially we have ever had. Some are telling me I got lucky, I know
better. It is difficult to completly follow Jake when trying to sell my crop. I
know certain months I need to sell, and use his timing method's to get a better
price. Would you thanks him for me, as his method's have improved my average
selling price. I am now able to get a higher average than Cargill's Pro Pricing

I wanted to thank you for all the help you have given me the past couple of
months. For the first time in my trading I have the confidence that I will be
able to make a career out of this. Because of your dedication, and desire to
truly help people succeed in this business I can honestly say that I will be
able to achieve my goals. I just wanted you to know how appreciative I am of all
the help you've given me since I first met you last August in San Diego. You are
one of the good guys in this industry. Thanks again for all of your help.

I have no Idea how many systems you installed on my computer. I don't care how
much big money they are making, I never saw a profit on any thing, so I don't
care what track records you have of what, to me it means nothing. I have never
experienced any thing from you that resulted in any thing. (Nor any one else)
As to 4 seminars for no charge since last may, I also find this very hard to
I have tried many times and I hoped many times, that, I might be able to pick up
one thing, one rule, one guide, one something, 1/2 of something,
And it has been nothing, nada, nope, no way, zilch
There for, I am convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is nothing you
have that is worth a hoot or that can do me any good.
I tried all I could try in the past years to learn something from you, but (we
can both agree) I have not. And I think we can both agree I should abandon this
I even tried to set up a account with Paul, figuring with the 3 of us, I would
fall in place, but he couldn't figure how to open a account with me ........ I
have a little change in a account with fox via Ron Harris and another account
with a little change with fox via Kevin and Daniela, and another account at
Vision with my Florida broker Mike Barnaby, a account with interactive brokers,
and a account with ts7.2 (O'Brien) Paul could not figure out how to open a
account for me, so how could help me with any thing else?
Personally I do not think the Joe Kurtsinger stuff is worth a hoot also, nor the
Roy Kelly stuff, nor the Bob Hunt stuff or the Bollinger stuff and others and
others and others. Roy Kelly watched me blow $10,000.00 in the markets after I
gave him $10,000.00 cash up front and spent another ten or so on travel, lodging
costs, car rental, lap top, pc projector, on and on and on. Right there next to
me, using his systems, his indicators, his advise. He could not give me any
rules that worked. at the end his wife says, if I ever figure this out, please
let us know! ?????????????????? #)*&^%$?/)@
I do not, have faith in any of this crap (sentences above) so I can only try to
rely on my human nature to correct my mistakes and learn (trial and error). I
have a good Idea what my mistakes are and I try to correct them, some times this
is difficult. People ask me about a system? I got no system, what system?
Regardless I now use TS7.2. This is not a mistake, this is a good tool and I
only receive the cbot. If I cannot trade with the trend in lets say bonds, then
I cannot trade with the trend in any thing. I now only have only one thing on my
mind, since I cannot rely on any thing else, and that is to learn the trend,
this sounds so simple, but for me this is not simple
I do not want to fight. You seem ok also, I have tried to follow your rules, but
I saw nothing so I just gave up. I cannot go running to you over every issue
every time something is not right. You got your business to run and I got mine.
I have tried and purchased every thing you have on sale? and I went to more of
your seminars than any one else, but I have not made one dime. That should tell

Lastly, I want to thank you for the hard work,
great newsletters, and your editoral spirit. This year alone I made $38,000+
trading corn and wheat and $15,000+ trading cocoa.
Jake's next Seminar are on soon

I am taking positions in corn and wheat (-$12,000) as of writing but know it is
going to move once we get past all the turmoil in the southern states. I
have learned to discipline myself with larger stops although losing money is
difficult to tolerate. I recently acquired a dollar seat at the NYBOT but have
to pass the mock trading (passed the written).
As a plastic surgeon it is hard to learn the pit lingo as I am a little out of
my element and with a busy practice it is difficult to get down there. I love
trading and the mental exercise of trading. I took your course in NYC (Crowne
Plaza) the last time you were here and learned alot. I subscribe to the STS.
I appreciate your willingness to teach.

As a former student of Jakes personal training. I would like to say don't waste
time with trading letters, books, hot lines, only to find out what you think
should work but don't work. Jake can show you procedures, methods, timing
indicators, tools that really work. I say let Jake help you find direction and
develop a method of trading that will last.
