Futures Investment Expert
Pat Barham has been actively trading futures and equities for over 30 years. After attending the University of Memphis, he began his career in the agricultural industry, a career that would eventually introduce him to the financial side of agriculture. From that point on, Pat pursued the challenging opportunity of trading the futures market. Through the years of trading, Pat has seen much change in the markets. From paper chart books that he filled in by hand every day to computers that do it all for you. From slow hand written order entry systems and even slower fill reporting, to electronic entries and fills in a split second. He has also had the opportunity to trade almost every futures contract that has been offered and to observe all types of traders, from icons like John Henry to traders that blow their accounts out in a few short weeks. In dealing with these traders, he has also experienced first hand how people react or respond to certain market conditions over the years. He learned many years ago that to react to something is seldom good but to respond is preferable. In trading, the responders are the ones that have the longevity in the markets. With all Pat’s experience, teaching others to trade has been a high priority.
