Specially Prepared American Meat. SPAM

Do you ever notice how things change and yet so much stays the same? I used the word SPAM incorrectly. It was meant this way and I apologize. I hate spam emails, I hate spam ads (paid ads) and I hate spam phone calls. They are spending a small amount of money to waste your time and get your money. The time thing is most important to me. I assume the spam industry is in good order. I see no signs of it letting up in the near future. Read on if you would like to lessen your chances of getting trapped in a spam offer or worse, even a fraud campaign. ( those will really cost you money). I really don't mean to trash spam. I have eaten it before and was glad to have it. If it looks too good to be true, It's too good to be true. I write this article to recruit you to spend a few moments of your precious time and look at our offering. Just as your time is precious, my time is very precious to me and I am not getting any younger. So, with that, take a moment; read on and find out what I found to be so valuable that I spend my time to get some of your time. Money. Time. Health. Good looks. How important are each of these in your life? How would you rate these 4 items as to importance in your life? If you put time and health at the top of the list, then you are smarter than 80% of the people I have met in my career as a soldier, businessman, and entrepreneur.  I can earn more money and I can always get a facelift, but no one will grant me time and when my health is not good, every minute seems an eternity and not in a good sense. I cannot help you to look better, (except when I put a smile on your face) nor can I give you more time to enjoy. One thing I have found that helps to put a smile on my face and to be able to enjoy my time is earning more money. And, it's not complicated. Most people can do this if trained properly. If you google a phrase such as "jobs", or "easy business opportunities", or "earn more money", how long will it take you to sift through and identify the good, the bad, and the ugly? I can imagine doing this and leaving all these cookies on my computer. I would take a year to beat back all the spam and get rich schemes and outright fraud.  And since you are looking, maybe you need help to find the right fit for you and not a bunch of vultures picking you apart to find your wallet. Here is what I found to be the most transparent company and the best value for your dollar. A company that will provide the expert [...]

So Now You’re Retired. What now?

By |2019-11-22T08:38:14-06:00November 22nd, 2019|$500K career, Best Business Ever, Earn More Money|

You did your 20 and now you're out. But what to do now. Can you live like you want on the pay from your retirement? Can you sit around and do nothing? What is the next step in the rest of your career? Walmart and HomeDepot are some great options if you have no place to go or you don't have the funds to travel. But will this meet your financial goals? Maybe a gig doing some security work or start a small business fixing and repairing stuff. If these last options don't really appeal to you, then keep reading and let me tell you about a small business that needs no college degree, no selling, no inventory, nor do you have to get your friends and neighbors to buy soap or sell timeshares. It's not every day that people talk about Futures Trading, but everyone probably knows more about futures trading than you realize. It really is simple. You buy low and you sell high. Now, was that hard?  If you ran a lemonade stand when you were a kid or you had a paper route, you learned about this. The simple concept of discount trading. You trade something you bought at a lower price and pocket the profit. Now you understand the basics of Futures Trading. We are not trading stocks, We are trading the S&P500 Emini. This is an electronically traded futures contract on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. This is an index fund comprised of the best of the best 500 stocks you run a store, you buy wholesale and you sell retail. If you sell an item from a website, you take the order, take the money, and then turn around and have your wholesaler ship the item to the customer. In this case, you never touched the item, but you did the deal and got the profit from the trade. In Futures Trading, you make an offer to buy a contract in a financial market such as the S&P500 index and when the price changes, you sell that contract and you receive the difference. There are many markets that sell these contracts but the best one to learn in is the S&P500. 500 of the best stocks in the world. When you master this concept you can trade currency, precious metals, oil, and many other markets.   There is risk involved with any financial trading, but this is where the S&P500 Trading Group excels. We are unique in the industry with respect to the training and mentorship we provide. No one comes close to the complete training we offer. At this time, we offer 10 hrs a day of live training/trading sessions that offer everything from basic or boot camp to advanced level trading strategies.  Our instructors are seasoned traders and industry experts. We start you off in an online boot camp to show you the basic terms and then it's on to practice sessions using a simulator. (kinda like a flight simulator). You are assigned [...]

Futures Trading and the path from the dirt to the shelf to the Bank

By |2019-11-21T05:42:34-06:00November 20th, 2019|Earn More Money, education, Futures Trading|

If you wonder about the title of this post, give me a minute The last part of the title should get your interest; as it talks about a trip to the bank.  You need to educate yourself about money so it will not be so difficult to obtain. With proper training, you can enter the field of investing and learn a new and exciting trade. If you want to earn more money or start a new career making $500K or more, then read on. Spend a few minutes and learn how this can change your future and help to meet your financial goal for the future. First, let me tell you a bit of why futures are so important to our overall economy and then we can discuss some of the math of making money. And then we'll talk about the Best Business Ever. From the Dirt to a T-Shirt Have you heard the term  Futures Trading before?  Or did you even know that it impacts a huge portion of our economy?  Futures trading introduces a calming effect on market prices. This short story will help you understand the stabilizing effect of futures trading and how it helps all aspects of our economy. And not just the American Economy. Let's pick on one small part of our economy. Cotton. A homegrown product. Why would you be concerned with the price of cotton?  Let me show you how this simple crop affects so many people in different ways. From the farmer to the major brand Clothing Store.  Follow the path of this plant from the time it goes into the ground until it ends up on the shelf of a store where you pay your hard-earned money to take it home with you. From the ground to the shirt on your back, the entire process takes time and money. Time and farmland, and fertilizer, and fuel to harvest and haul the raw material to the processing/manufacturing plants. From there, the cotton fabric is dyed, cut, sewn, and labeled. Trucks using fuel and public highways haul the clothing to a store where more energy is used to heat and cool and light the store for your shopping pleasure.   American Cotton The normal ebb and flow of commerce can not be regulated by any one industry or Government. Commerce and Business it is too big. Too complex and too many moving parts and too many variables. The pictures you see represent real estate, agriculture, oil, manufacturing, the energy market, and public transportation. And, many more industries.   This list is before we even get a cotton shirt to the shelf in your local store and calculate the proper price and advertising costs. How can you as a retail supplier co-ordinate all these industries just to get a cotton t-shirt on the shelf? Much less, all the other items for sale on Amazon or Wal-Mart.  Who could possibly make all these things come together at the right place and the right [...]

Wanna Gamble on your Future?

By |2019-11-21T05:44:42-06:00November 19th, 2019|Earn More Money, education, financial goals|

Pay for an inferior education and get what you pay for, plus pay more in the long run.  Have you heard the saying about buying a pig in a poke? This was common in public markets that sold livestock. You choose your piglet and the vendor reaches down to get a cloth sack (a poke) and comes back and hands you a wriggling closed cloth sack that had been sewn shut.  You would not open the sack until you got back home. At that point, you open your sack to find a dog or two cats tied up and their mouth taped shut.  You've been had. If you think a great education is expensive, try paying for an inferior education. Pay good money and receive none of the benefits you expected, plus look at all the time you wasted. To and from the market. How much is your time worth? And in the financial market, if you step out into the investing market before you have learned to swim, you may drown. There is significant risk involved for a novice. This is why we want you to take a good look at us before you make a decision that includes your money. This is why we offer you a couple of trips to sit in on our private training sessions to see how we make money. A great education to learn how to trade in the Futures Market is not expensive. The price vs the cost proves it is very inexpensive. Futures trading is a great vehicle to gain a foot up on inflation. To get to where you want to go in relation to your financial goals. But, wise people realize; do not try futures trading until you have received the proper training and have a track record to back it up. Because of this, they wisely shy away from an unfamiliar market. We can cure that indecision with the best education available. We won't let you swim without a lifeguard until you learn and prove your skills. Your skill in money management, capital preservation, and risk analysis.  Even then, we start you off in the shallow end of the pool. The price of a cheap product and the anger you realize, live on past the cost of value. I hear the old saying, time and again.  " You get what you pay for". I believe that this was true at one point in time. It related to buying something really cheap and finding out it was an inferior product or service. Cheap is not always inexpensive. Price and Cost do not mean the same thing.  Now, with all the information available on-line; you need to discern the noise from the wisdom. We want to show you how to do just that. I'm implying you; can spend very little more and you would be more satisfied with a purchase.  In a prior era when you would walk into a store and look your salesman in the eye, talk about [...]

Price vs Value and Why you may not have Enough Money

By |2019-11-18T08:18:36-06:00November 18th, 2019|education, financial goals, Futures Trading|

Were you ever curious about futures trading? What is this odd-sounding animal? Many people never reach their financial goals because of our education system. We were never taught the difference between price and cost. Between price and value. Our struggle to get ahead was not because we are bad people, but because we did not receive a basic education in money management. Understanding value and cost vs price will free you up to follow your dream to your financial goals. Your dream to make more money or even start a new six-figure career. The S&P500 Trading Group is unique in the industry. We offer value far above any group like ours. Understanding value will have you knocking at the door to this amazing school. Spend a bit of time here and you will understand making money using your existing money is not as complicated as you may imagine.  The time you spend with us will change your thinking about Futures Trading and making money in an upmarket and a down market. Using an age-old principle of "Buy Low, and Sell High." We are so sure you will understand these concepts, that we will let you come and sit in on a couple of our training/trading sessions For Free.  Contact us and we will send you info on how to join a couple of live sessions that see up to 300 people a day learning and making money. We are transparent in our concept and our teaching/training. We have nothing to hide.  The Door to Success Now, on to learn about how critical Value is versus price?  The Cost vs the Price?  Understanding the difference is critical to meeting your financial goals. To making money for the long term. Did you know the financial derivatives called Futures Trading were set up originally to trade commodities and stabilize the economy? It is a major stabilizing force in every industry that grows,  builds or manufactures. The price of any item is driven by the demand (which is also Scarcity) and that defines its price. If an item is in high demand, the price goes up until the customer decides not to pay the higher price. At the same time, the manufacturer is looking to fill the gap when they see the price (and their profit potential ) is going up. They ramp up production. It may take a while before these two forces (or demand) equal out and the price stabilizes. During that time, the two forces cause a price fluctuation and that is when you can realize your profit with futures trading. We teach you to recognize when to buy and sell. And, this is really not that difficult to learn. So, again; the demand is a force that causes the price to go up, and if the demand for goods or services goes down then the price can go down also. You don't have to know all of these concepts to trade futures. The act of trading futures is rather simple and [...]

Can you Top this Support Group? Not Likely

By |2019-11-21T05:49:07-06:00November 14th, 2019|financial goals, Futures Trading|

In all of the futures trading community, how many groups can say; "Come and join us for a get-together and a meal, we'll have a swell time sharing?" We'll learn and earn and exceed our financial goals with this awesome business.  This group of successful business entrepreneurs are a work at home success story. You may just want to earn more money, or you may want to start a $500K career, either way, you came to the right site. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I have no knowledge of another group this big that will support their members and share with each other as we grow together. As we learn and earn. Even though we meet on-line up to 5 times a day, we still can put a face to the others in our trading sessions. We become part of a large extended family. This is the current list of cities where we meet. Albany                     Cincinnati                  Sacramento Harrisburg             Memphis                    Atlanta Orlando                  Dallas                          Portland Denver                    Raleigh                       Jacksonville                      Phoenix                  Salt Lake City             Seattle   I wanted you to see how a group of like-minded people from all over the nation support each other and change lives as they realize their financial goals. Just getting together over a meal and maybe a beer is a game-changer for some folks that work at home. It's a joy to share our trials and our successes. When you work at home you find that a phone call or text or even a video chat is not often enough to connect with the people that you really want to share with and work with. Work at Home and never get stuck in traffic. Even though working from home has great advantages as far as the economics of running your business, there are a few drawbacks.  When Dr. Cast started the Trading Academy, he understood the pressures of being alone a big part of the day and also the benefits of working at home. So when he started the Trading Academy over 10 years ago he also started the meetup groups. Dr. Vance Cast As The Trading Group has grown larger and larger the meetup groups have extended out to the closest city in a geographic area of the Traders. Now you can see from our list where the members meet each month to enjoy each other's company and meal or just visit.  The meetup groups are another [...]

Your Money or Your Life

By |2019-11-12T08:34:09-06:00November 12th, 2019|Best Business Ever, education, financial goals|

Everyone wants your money, but You Have a Choice Why do I have to make a choice?  I want both. I want my money and I want a good life; not a life burdened by debt.  But I'm afraid to make a wrong decision. Now I have to ask, How do I make these choices?  This is an age-old quandary, but in our world of instant communication and cell phones and the internet, you would think we could Google a quick answer. What is the best road to take? Are you going to trust your future to a website that changes definitions and authors daily? Every time the moon goes through a new phase, there is a new political or financial crisis to be cured and it's going to affect your retirement. Are these the people you trust your money to? If you go online and Google "investment" or "more money" how many sites are there that actually pertain to what you are looking for and how many are paid advertisements, just looking to take your money? Your Money or Your Life You may find some answers, but can you trust Google and Wikipedia to give you the correct answer for the exact situation you are in right now? And if they give you the wrong answer, are they going to bail you out of a jam? I have an answer to that question. Now, after many years of building a business ( actually 2 businesses) and then flipping homes and real estate, and other investment choices, I have an answer to keeping your money and enjoying a good life. There are many routes to a good retirement and/or a great lifestyle. Let me share one I found. The answer to how to earn more money or start a $500K career is called Futures Trading. A more exact definition would be "discount trading" and I can show you how to accomplish this and change Your future. Follow me here for a bit. This answer may well be the exit strategy you have been looking for. This truly is a life-changing decision for those people that have attended our Trading Academy. Actually, this may be the answer you have been looking for. Earn more money, keep more money, travel if you like while you earn, or work from home with the best business ever. When we use the phrase your money or your life what we're actually trying to say is do you have the resources to take a hit such as picking the wrong career or buying the wrong product. For Example, If you go buy an expensive car, what is the decision-making process in buying that particular car? Is it something you know about, or something that a friend told you about, and what happens if you do make a wrong decision and purchase a $50,000 vehicle and it does not perform nearly as well as you expected it to? Are you stuck with the consequences of a bad [...]

Protect yourself from Fraud in Futures Trading

By |2019-11-11T06:24:24-06:00November 11th, 2019|Earn More Money, education, Money Management|

Yes, there is an app for that. Just kidding.  The best way to avoid fraud is common sense.  If it seems too good to be true; then trust your gut feeling. We make a lot of claims here for the S&P500 Trading Group. AND, we can back up those claims.  We claim "you cannot get rich quick." We claim investing for profit takes training, more training, and time, and energy and commitment. We claim you can grow your wealth using risk management, capital preservation, and proper risk/reward ratios. Prove me wrong! Now, the good news.  You can do this!  Contact us and let's talk.  Not everyone is right for futures trading. We will be upfront with you and tell you our opinion based on our experience and some proven facts that may exclude you from being a successful trader. But, don't back away just because you don't have a college degree. Contact us. Remember what I said earlier. We use capital preservation as part of our program. We don't want you losing money. We don't want you gambling. Earn your money using your hard-earned capital and keep it.  Our instructors are seasoned traders and industry experts. Did you notice, our articles appear on military-centric platforms. Yes, we aim our advertising at Veterans. This is because I believe you should have the same opportunity as your fellow citizens that did not have the same opportunity as you. They may have had the luxury of a college degree and starting a family or buying a house long before our men in uniform could start investing in their future in these ways. That being said, I believe our veterans are capable of so much more after they retire the uniform. And I believe in you because I have been where you are. I will not act like the vultures at the gate when you go off post; to extort you into impossible interest rates for a car, or a house, or even furniture. We are here to Honor your service. Not to screw you over as so many would. Here  is an excerpt from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission: The best way to protect yourself against fraud is to stay informed. Be aware of the tactics scammers use to lure you into making questionable investing decisions. Watch for the following in the sales pitches: High rate of return or guarantee - verify the firm or individual's track record, don't invest unless you can get solid information about the investment and the company. Limited time offers or high-pressure sales tactics – don't be pushed into a quick decision. Be suspicious if they demand an immediate commitment or if they ask you to expedite payment, regardless of the method (cash, money transfer, credit card, etc.). Little or no risk – except for obligations of the U.S. government, all investments have a degree of risk. Futures contracts are leveraged or margined; you may be liable for losses in excess of your initial deposit. Ask for a written risk [...]
