- Dear Henry, or should we say "Market Wizard Henry"
- Thank you for your kindness and thoughfulness in answer to our questions. Your new 'Earnings Trader' system looks unique , in that it's currently delivering over 9:1 (filtered) win/loss ratio, a very smart system and suitable for options trading (although we have only experience of trading shares ) But since you have done all of the work in selecting the potential winning options and the system is so mechanical we don't see any real work to do- or major problems in trading options.
From what we have studied , so
far, it seems since there is less
risk due to lower capital input
and a much higher return;which
more than offsets the occassional
losing trades ( no doubt the
strength of the current bull
market is helping to give a high
win/loss ratio )? Since we are in
a different time zone we wonder
what effect this would have on
us,and would like to learn more
about how much time is available
to act once the signals to buy or
sell are listed?
We plan to paper trade for 4 weeks
to get a feel for the system and
how well it works. The special
offer package at $ 59.95 We
have just ordered online, Please
send this off as soon as possible
as we are eager to learn more and
profit from the experience,
Our sincerest regards, Derek &

Today I decided to test what is new on your site and I am glad I did it. Your guy recommended the Pre-Earnings Announcement system, as best one you have. I went through your web page, bought the manual and calculated trade statistics the way I like to look at the system performance (enclosed). To reduce the number of trades and improve performance, I took only your filtered trades and optionable stocks.
The results were shocking. They delivered the highest CPC index in my history of trading systems evaluations and development. If you don’t know it, CPC index is a product of three components:
- % winners
- Ratio of gross profit to gross loss
- Ratio of an average winning trade to average losing trade
Many traders will not touch systems with the CPC index below 2.0. Your system delivered CPC over 400 in 61 closed trades initiated between May and November 2003.
The statistics of these 61 trades is outstanding and in line with my trading objectives:
% winners: 93.5%
Average trade: 25.2%:
Average trade length: 80 days
Average number of trades: 7.7/month (assuming 7 months of trades)
Average annualized return: 114%/year (based on average trade and average trade length, no compounding)

God! I love you guys. Do you realize if you do your homework, use 10 to 20k of your investments, and you watch your picks with "Pitbull", you can earn the same amount of money a poorly, educated, blue collar person makes per week from your Pitbull Stock System. I earned only $600.00 to $700.00 per week as a corporate employee. Some days only one stock has that much gain, if i short, less my commission of $20 to $50 dollars, I have a damn good reason to not go to work ever. Thank you Mr.Ford.

I have been using the EAGLE-I option selection techniques since April 14, 1997 and am very pleased. In 7 Weeks I have doubled my cash value. Even though that seems fast I am still having trouble being patient. I DayTraded OEX options during 1996 and had some success but nothing like this. Whats more amazing is that the success was not in just 1 option infact I have purchased more than 9 different issues and not one of them lost money. I highly recommend this trading system to everyone I know that trades.
I have only one suggestion... PLEASE develop some method for pitbull Traders to communicate with each other. Even if it is just a list of E-mail addresses. This could provide an team atmosphere and give us another reason to convince our friends to join the team.

Dear Mr. Ford,
I have only been a "pitbull"
for a mere three weeks or so, but I can already
tell that I am in possession of something that has great
potential. As an Investors
Daily subscriber for five years, your method fits
beautifully with my thought process. As much as I love
the paper (and I look forward to receiving it every
day), there was something missing from my selection
process, and it showed in my performance. Sure I had
many winners (and some devastating losers), but I knew I
could do better. The problem was,as I now see it, I
wasn't disciplined enough. I didn't know when to take
profits or take losses. I now believe this will not be a
problem. I truly needed something mechanical and I
believe your system can provide this "missing link".
Although I am mainly paper trading, of the four stocks I
purchased (NR, LIFB, MARC, and QHGI), three of them are
up, and one is at break-even. NR and LIFB are up almost
10% in just 2 plus weeks. As far as paper trading goes,
6 of the roughly 20 stocks I am tracking were closed out
at a 1.7% average
loss, and believe it or not, it doesn't really matter. I
am almost happy to close out a loser with a small loss
knowing that my capital is available for the next
opportunity. The winners in my paper trading portfolio
are up approximately 3% overall, some more and some
less. I realize that the bull market has definitely
helped. The point is I really believe this is going to
At some point I would like to take advantage of your
option and shorting systems. I figured it might be a
good idea to get a handle on the long side system first.

selections from the internet. Is there a way you could
clue me in on this?

after all these years, someone with a flash of genius
says that it's not a matter of working harder, it's a
matter of working smarter and then SHOWS YOU HOW TO DO

Dear Mr. Ford,
I have been playing this stock game for about an year,
some stocks made marginal profit and some lost upto 30%
of the principle investment before i pulled myself out.
I would look at people with dismay who used to boast at
parties as perpetual winners. How can people win all the
time and make money? Are they exaggerating the facts?
Are they trying to glorify themselves? Is this stock
just a guessing game? I wonder all the time. If Warren
Buffet can make 12 Billion dollors by just trading
stocks, then there must be a system which works.Then I
came across your Pitbull stock picking and trading
system which really impressed. At first I thought this
is one of those "get rich quick" scams. I studied the
system and underlying principles carefully which made
lot of sense to me. I went to public library and probed
the sanity of the system which never failed. I am so
much delighted to tell you that you really gave me a
check for "multi million dollors". My modesty forced me
to use "M" in place of "B". I am basically a risk taking
person, but this system forces me to put aggressive
risks into disciplined tactical trading. This is the
greatest wealth I have ever acquired in my life.This is
something we can pass on to our descendents.
Thanks a lot for answering all my questions with
