Chapter 2. The intermediate futures trad... > The “Voice from the Tomb”

The “Voice from the Tomb”

At least two old-time grain traders I know swear by this, and you should check it out.

The story goes like this: There was a millionaire grain trader who had three children. After their mother died, he raised them by himself and dedicated his life to his children. But the children were lazy and thought they would inherit all the money. He thought his children wasteful, and believed they took him for granted. When he died, all the money went to charity. All he left them in his will were the following dates of when to buy and when to sell. The will indicated that if they strictly followed his advice (shown as follows), they would have the fortune they always thought was going to drop in their laps:

Wheat

Sell March wheat on January 10

Buy May and/or July wheat on February 22

Sell July wheat on May 10

Buy December wheat on July 1

Sell December wheat on September 10

Buy March wheat on November 28

Corn

Buy July corn on March 1

Sell July corn on May 20

Buy December corn on June 25

Sell December and March corn on August 10

This is the advice of the “Voice from the Tomb” (VFTT)
