Product Description

From the Back Cover

“I’ve been trading stocks and commodities for more than 30 years, and I’ve read any number of how-to books, but George Kleinman’s The New Commodity Trading Guide is as clear, precise, and useful as any book I’ve come across during my career. I cannot recommend it strongly enough, if for no other reason than George finally explains ‘The Voice from the Tomb’ better than any of the old guard at the CBOT. Read it and reap.”--Dennis Gartman, editor/publisher The Gartman Letter, L.C.


“Commodities present great financial opportunity and, as every hedge fund and trader has experienced, great risk. This book shows how to use commodity trading and volatility to capture excess profits while limiting losses. These lessons are as critical for investors as they are for traders, as we are likely to be in a volatile trading environment for the foreseeable future.”--Daniel J. Dart, private investor and COO, Merrill Lynch Investment Managers, Third Party Group (retired)


“George Kleinman’s book has just the right blend of practical trading wisdom, technical charting, and fundamental analysis. It’s full of revealing discussions about seasonal trading patterns and long term trends. But most importantly it presents a balanced view that honestly reveals both the difficulties and advantages of being a private commodities trader. There’s something here for both experienced investors and beginners interested in learning from a seasoned expert.”--Jeff Augen, author of The Volatility Edge in Options Trading and Trading Options at Expiration


“I highly recommend George Kleinman’s The New Commodity Trading Guide. George’s insights, the result of 25 years of successful trading experience, are explained in a way that a new trader can grasp and, at the same time, an experienced trader can translate into his own trading. Best of all, George presents many of his own creative trading methods including his Natural Number Method, explained for the first time in this book.”--Jeff Quinto, president of Transformative Trading and futures trading coach


“Since leaving the trading floor, George is one of the few people I still talk to about the markets, and this book clearly shows why. He is able to take classic time-tested methods of technical analysis and adapt them to the conditions faced by today’s electronic traders.”--Andrew Stanton, 20-year veteran of the NY trading floors


Over the long term, commodities prices are expected to rise based on massive increases in global demand. But, as many investors have discovered the hard way, merely knowing this is not enough to make consistent profits. Fundamental changes in the commodities markets have occurred that have implications most investors do not understand. For instance, century-old “open outcry” trading floors have now been replaced with computerized trading. In The New Commodity Trading Guide, commodities expert George Kleinman reveals the new practical realities of worldwide electronic commodities trading and specific strategies for capitalizing on today’s radically different markets.


Kleinman shows how to leverage the one indicator that consistently drives commodity prices today...introduces the right ways to trade on news and profit from trends...reveals consistent seasonal price shifts that mean huge profits...shows which conventional strategies still work (and which don’t!). Finally, he introduces the Natural Number Method, a breakthrough approach that any commodities trader can use to supercharge performance!


  • Capturing the 5000% return
    What you can learn from one of history’s fastest price moves
  • “Breaking par”: how you can profit from market psychology
    How to make profitable trades right after market barriers are shattered
  • The trend’s your friend--if you know how to use it
    Discover the best times to go with the flow
  • Why markets behave differently at significant break points...
    ...and how to use that knowledge to make big profits
  • What hasn’t changed--and how you can profit from it
    Two classic chart patterns that continue to work!

Very interesting methods for frequent traders. However, one thing which was obvious from the author's many examples was his deep knowledge of the sectors which he was trading and his reliance on that knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must Read for any current or future trader 26 May 2009
By Commodity Trader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I generally do not write reviews, however I found the strategies in this book so beneficial for any serious trader (or serious trader-to-be) that I felt compelled to add my two cents.

The concepts presented in the Trading Guide are elegant, simple yet profound. The author points out there's no `Holy Grail', however I have already used his SNI and Voice from the Tomb for successful trades, and his `Breakthrough Strategy' in my experience identifies the major trends more often than not.

In response to `Old Fashioned' I felt this review unfair in that the moving average explanation was tucked not in the body of the book but in the Appendix with this section specifically targeted for novices not familiar with how these work (and I do not see where he talks about calculating by hand?) Don't let this one review put you off as the body of the book presents many old and new useful concepts some I have not seen before in my many years of trading.

An excellent and essential trading book for anyone trading or thinking of trading commodity futures.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best. Finally... 6 April 2009
By Bill G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great info. Essential reading, for every serious trader. Many books have
been written over the years fully validating trend following (more like riding)
but yours, shows readers How to - select and then actually trade a trend,
using simple, easy to see and reliable patterns.

Congratulations. You have provided a great gift to investors and traders -
a basis for success, to those who truly want it. An excellent book.

2.0 out of 5 stars For beginners, Nothing new - except two simple strategies 12 Jun. 2010
By Stephan Wiesner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book is another beginner book for trading commodity futures. It offers two very simple strategies (like always trade wheat at some fixed days). The author demonstrates that it works most of the time - but the charts presented clearly show that simple moving averages would have resulted in a better performance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Old Fashioned Filler 26 May 2009
By Mr. Allnut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Any book that gives a trader the formula for calculating moving averages in this day and age is struggling for material. Any trader who is calculating moving averages by hand or programing them in themselves has too much free time on their hands.

The book does offer one interesting trading strategy but with no statistical evidence to back it up.

It may be worth a read for some simply for the strategy. Otherwise, the book is for novices only and would be incomplete for them at that.
