    ***********
    We can conclude those:
    1 This year future traders have a bad year.
    2 Japaness top 3's average is better than other market's average.
    3 Top Japaness Fairy can become #1 three times, well the other Mike Lundgren can repeat #1 at much lower gain rate%

    I read the trade diary of Fairy. He is very short term based. and in his dairy, he looks much real than Larry Williams. I wonder why Larry never repeat his standing in other years. Is he just lukcy that year?

  3. Those guys had to be heavy short because before the big run up, the US futures standing's leader was 297% and second and third were triple digits as well.

    i read the trade dairy. it is mostly short term trades holding from less than 1 day to 3 days. Japaness #1 mainly traded based on 3 things.
    1, previous day chart
    2, overseas market before market open
    3, today's movement
     
  5. The commission costs in that contest are very high........~$20 per contract. You won't get very many high-frequency traders participating in the contest who can generate 4, 5, 6 or 7-digit annual returns.
