Shedding Light on the Life of Larry Williams – The Ace Futures Trader

He has guided thousands of traders to negotiate successfully on the market, won a large number of championships, in addition to being a global futures trader to have again and again traded $1 million in his seminars presented in different parts of the world.
Larry Williams started his after markets more than 5 decades ago in 1962. It was the falling market that sparked his interest, and when he saw President Kennedy forcing back the prices of steel. This event was widely covered on news, and while most traders lost millions, Larry realized that if there was “shorts,” he could have made a fortune.
Larry spent $100 to understand the market, which he lost. At just 20, $100 meant a lot to him. He graduated in Journalism from the University of Oregon and had a strong obsession for writing.

His first book on investment, The Secret of Selecting Stocks was published in 1970. He went on to publish Sure Thing Commodity Trading among several other books. Larry was so busy with his work that included trading, researching, teaching, writing and development of trade tools, still he made it twice to the Senate.
Larry produced some of the leading bestsellers in the trading market that included the well-known, “1982’s How to Prosper in the Coming Good Years,” that predicted the biggest bullish market in the history of America’s economic growth.
