This is my official bio and it pretty much sums it up: John F. Carter grew up the son of Morgan Stanley stockbroker, and was introduced into trading as a sophomore in high school, and has been trading actively for the past 19 years. He studied international finance at the University of Cambridge in England before graduating from the University of Texas at Austin. John has been a full time trader since 1996. In 1999, tired of talking to his goldfish while trading alone in his office, he launched www.tradethemarkets.com to post his trading ideas. Today he has a following of over 10,000 people. John publishes separate daily newsletters for futures/single stock futures, options and equities trading, and, more recently, forex, at www.razorforex.com. He's a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) with Razor Trading, manages a futures and a forex fund. McGraw Hill tapped him to write a book entitled Mastering the Trade, due out in December, 2005. To keep his sanity, John relies on physical activity after the close to deal with the financial swings he and his subscribers encounter. He clears his head running, swimming, traveling with his wife, Maria, and playing with his son, James.
