    Anybody hear of this guy? Looks like he's looking to make a few pennies via a newsletter service after trading for JP Morgan's STIR desk for seven years. I have no idea what it costs - looks like he's marketing his service to prop firms.

    I have ZERO affiliation with him or his company. Just curious.

    From the website (

    The Curve Advisor was founded in 2011 by Joseph Choi. Mr. Choi was a senior proprietary trader in J.P. Morgan’s Global Currencies and Commodities Group. He was consistently profitable in trading Eurodollar butterflies over his seven year trading career. He was one of the largest discretionary users of Eurodollar futures and options, trading well over 10 million contracts a year. Mr. Choi started the Curve Advisor newsletter to discuss trade-specific market views on the Eurodollar curve and to help clients explore opportunities in curvature trading.
  2. If he was consistently profitable, why is he not still working as a prop trader, either for JP or a fund?

    This sounds like a bit of a joke, tbh... Having said that, it seems that what he says in the excerpts from the stuff he sends out is quite reasonable.

    I'm just trying to wrap my head around the term "curvature trading".

    LOL. My thoughts exactly. Sounds like two lonely guys swapping pin-up posters. :p

    My preference is to let a serious prospective client perform due diligence on me - including providing to that potential client email contacts of existing clients so that they can be independently contacted and queried about their experiences. YOR - can you please share with the rest of the people on this website, why you have only four posts in 2014 - and they all appear today trolling me ?

    I fairly and openly represent an amatuur homegamer on ET with possibly age/experience on my side.

    I would love to learn more about spread trading.
    I would love access to Bone's models and spread confiurations.
    I would love to pay about $250 for access to this. I know this will not happen
    I think Bone does contibute technical spread trading content to ET and yes, I get why.

    I envision Bones client as a profitable trader. Possibly a full time trader, maybe not.
    I would think that Bones clients earn at a minimum 20k per year for some time now.
    I would think that they look at $7500 as a business expense to expand,diversify,neutralize their
    trading activities and add value to their trading for many years.

    I seriously doubt Bone would accept a newbie , unprofitable trader with a 10k account and stars in his eyes.
    It seems to me that a few disgruntled clients could have a negative effecton his business.
    I havent read any such negative reviews nor see any evidence he is scraping sludge for a fee.
    Hell, the fee itself is exclusive isnt it?

    Now can you cut me a deal Bone?
