Just to let anyone know who has ears to hear with. The entire Futures market is a scam, it doesn't really "trade", rather it's controlled by a supercomputer. Another words the direction is controlled by a computer and not by the dynamics of "buying" and "selling". This is a 100% positive FACT, and my Advanced Videos PROVE this FACT beyond any shadow of any doubt whatsoever! If any of you want to learn the truth, come over to my website "Oil Trading Academy" .

Make lots of many in OIL. I got a REAL conspiracy for all of you. One that I PROVE mathematically and scientifically, and it's one of the biggest secrets there is. The FACT that ALL Futures markets are CONTROLLED by a Computer program. They DO NOT trade.period! I'm a scientist and trader and this is a FACT, not a con, not a scam, not a joke, not a whacko, just the REAL TRUTH! Go to my website "Oil Trading Academy", then go to the page "Secret Revealed", read that page and get ready for your mind to be boggled.
