Is Larry Williams a CTA or not ?

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by fluttrader, Feb 21, 2008.

  1. I found this

    "Since you seem to know Larry so well, perhaps you could help me. The following is an excerpt from his site:

    "Larry Williams has taught thousands to correctly trade the markets, won many trading championships, and has been the only futures trader in the world to repeatedly trade $1 million of his own money live at seminars around the globe."

    Could you please provide some information for the rest of us regarding the other (many) contests he has won?

    Another fine quote:

    "Larry is many things, but he is not a CTA (commodity trading advisor)."

    Truer words have perhaps never been written. "Many things."

    And finally, this, my personal favorite:

    "He is the most highly regarded and well known short term trader in the world. No other trader is as accomplished as Larry Williams."

    Talk about self-aggrandizement! It pays to have your own web site, eh?

    And if skepticism should ever mount in the future, there will no doubt be another web site to reassure the faithful:

    go to page 27 for the above post

    BUT can't find this info back on his website.

    Perhaps you could query the database of CTAs. It is freely available for anonymous searches, on the website of the National Futures Association. The joy of discovery will be yours. An "all the words" google search for

    NFA member databse

    finds gold within the first dozen hits.
