Option Trading and Oil Futures Markets

This was orignally published in 1987 by Oxford Institute for Energy Studies.

The establishment, of a very successful crude oil futures market by the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) has introduced a new and important factor into the process of oil price formation. Trading in crude oil futures has been expanding very rapidly and now provides an instrument that enables economic agents to hedge against short-term price risks. The NYMEX is also a reading mechanism or oil price discovery in the short term.

However, as is the case for most futures markets, NYMEA contracts extend over a fairly short time horizon (eighteen months in theory but only four months in practice), and there is a lack of fiexibility prevailing once a hedge has been initiated ( a price is rigidly fixed from then on no matter what the market does afterwards).

The Truth about Six Pack Abs

This has been a one of the most popular ebooks ever published on 6 pack abs.
From the guide:
"... deciding to give this program a shot to improve not only how you look physically, but also how you feel, how much energy you have, and your confidence as well. Rest assured that everything you need to know about getting and staying lean for life is included in this book, without any gimmicky or fad products needed, and virtually no supplements needed either.

Whatever you do, please have an open mind when going through this book and realize that some of what you are going to read goes directly against a lot of what you hear in the mass media and from many other outlets of fitness information. The problem is that many of these so called “experts” you see in the media and in all the advertisements really know NOTHING about true health/fitness, they are simply trying to force you to buy their latest gimmick or fad product or supplement they are selling.

Turtle Trading - Original Rules

Faith Curtis was an original member of the group that took part in the exhilaratingly famous Turtle trading experiment.

This experiment was due to an argumentative bet between 2 trading experts, who happened to be friends.

Richard Dennis and William Eckhardt. Dennis was known as Prince of the trading pit.

Dennis' argument was, simply anybody - highly gifted people not needed - can be taught his very successful system and he/she will be successful. William was all for inate ability of the trader...according to him the mandatory ingradient to become successful at trading.

World had to listen...Dennis was right...the "Turtles", did fantastically well and made millions on the experiment!

This is a very significant message for any up and coming trader.
What is VERY important is sticking to a trading system
- which has good balance of cutting losses QUICKLY and letting winning positions go SUFFICIENTLY uninterrupted.

Following are some excerpts from the book by Faith Curtis.

Understanding Cerebral Palsy

Athetoid cerebral palsy affects muscle tone, causing it to fluctuate from low to normal and sometimes high. Children often have random involuntary movements of their faces, arms, and upper bodies (and to a lesser extent lower extremities). These children also have difficulty holding their trunks in a steady, upright position and often need external trunk support to maintain balance. For most of these children, it takes a lot of work and concentration to complete tasks. For example, reaching for a toy and getting it in their hand in the correct spot is difficult due to tone fluctuations and involuntary movements. This type of cerebral palsy occurs in approximately 20% of all cases.

The Negative Calorie Diet

Negative Calories. What are they? Negative Calorie foods have what we will refer to as a “negative calorie effect.” To give you an idea of what that means, we’ll go through the process. You eat an apple. The apple you consume has 80 calories however, your body’s chemical processing, digestion and breakdown of that apple causes you to burn off 100 calories thus, your negative calorie effect is –20 calories. Can you see the implications of a diet based on this premise?

Nutrition & Diet for Healthy Lifestyles in Europe

The Eurodiet project was initiated in October 1998 with the aim to contribute towards a coordinated European Union (EU) and member state health promotion program on nutrition, diet, and healthy lifestyles, by establishing a network, strategy and action plan for the development of European dietary guidelines.

The Dysglycemia Diet

To more fully understand why we have designed this program, it is helpful to know a little about the biochemistry of blood sugar. Blood sugar, or serum glucose, is often measured with routine blood work at the doctor’s office. Glucose is the basic fuel all cells in your body use to make energy. Although it is measured in the blood, glucose can only be put to work and transformed into energy once it is in the cells, not when it is circulating in the bloodstream. It might be helpful to consider the bloodstream as the highway, and the cells as the factory. Glucose is the raw material that must be transported along the highway to the factory to be put to use.

Diet Planning and Metabolic Individuality

Body typing is a concept based on the idea that metabolic individuality exists and is not a random occurrence but rather is orderly and understandable and can be determined by observation and simple examination procedures. Specific dietary recommendations to achieve metabolic balance in individuals are also discussed.

The Anabolic Diet

You’ve heard it all before. Everybody from the American Medical Association to the media trendsetters to that so-called “expert” at your neighborhood gym has been saying the same thing for the last three decades: Fat is bad. Carbohydrates are good. If you want to get the body you’ve been working so hard for, you’ve got to focus on those carbohydrates and keep fat to an absolute minimum. So you dedicate yourself to living by the percentages the Lords of Lowfat give you. 55 percent carbs. No more than 15 percent fat. You load up on turkey and chicken. You separate the egg whites. You surgically remove all visible fat from any piece of meat. You always broil. Never fry.

Diet, Hypertension and Salt Toxicity

Salt is perhaps the oldest and most commonly used food additive. It improves the taste of many foods without adding calories. In larger amounts it also inhibits the growth of many microorganisms and has been used to preserve food throughout much of man’s recorded history. So important was salt for preserving foods that it was often part of the pay Roman soldiers received, hence the word “salary.” Today, refrigeration, modern canning and other food processing techniques have made this once essential preservative role of salt largely superfluous.

The Myths of Vegetarianism

Along with the unjustified and unscientific saturated fat and cholesterol scares of the past several decades has come the notion that vegetarianism is a healthier dietary option for people. It seems as if every health expert and government health agency is urging people to eat fewer animal products and consume more vegetables, grains, fruits and legumes. Along with these exhortations have come assertions and studies supposedly proving that vegetarianism is healthier for people and that meat consumption is associated with sickness and death. Several authorities, however, have questioned these data, but their objections have been largely ignored.

Utilitarianism, Vegetarianism, and Human Health

It is generally assumed that the link between utilitarianism and vegetarianism is relatively straightforward. However, a familiar objection to utility-based vegetarianism maintains that, given the massive scale of animal agribusiness, any given person is causally impotent in reducing the overall number of animals raised for food and, thus, in reducing the unfathomably high quantity of disutility engendered thereby.

Diet and Exercise for Weight Loss

Obesity is a fast growing epidemic that is primarily due to environmental influences. Nutrition and exercise represent modifiable factors with a major impact on energy balance. Despite considerable research, there remains continued debate regarding the energy content and the optimal macronutrient distribution for promoting healthy and effective weight loss. Low-fat diets have been advised for many years to reduce obesity. However, their effectiveness has been recently challenged, partly because the prevalence of obesity continues to rise despite reductions in fat intake.

Carbohydrates and Dietary Fiber

Dietary carbohydrates play a central role in human nutrition because they provide the primary source for the energy we need to fuel bodily functions. Carbohydrates are classified into two basic groups: simple and complex. Most dietary fiber is composed of indigestible carbohydrates, so fiber and related compounds are discussed as well.

Diabetes and Diet: A Type 2 Patient's Successful Efforts at Control

In managing diabetes the patient holds the key. Physicians and others can explain effects and make recommendations, but as yet there is no magic pill to cure diabetes. Once diabetic patients accept responsibility for their care, however, I believe good blood glucose (BG) control is possible for many.

The Celtic Diet

Science and technology have made staggering contributions to our lives over the past five decades, such as medical break-throughs, satellite communications, computers, contact lenses, Kevlar, bank machines, domestic printers, MRI's, Walkmans, Windows, HD TV, fuel cells, space stations, You Tube . . . and the list goes on. Yet, some of the things made high tech should have left alone.

Kidney Stone Diet

Almost everyone knows someone who has had kidney stones. The kidneys filter the blood to remove excess mineral salts and other soluble (dissolvable) wastes. The kidneys also produce the urine that dissolves these wastes and excretes them through the urinary tract. Kidney stones form when the urine becomes so saturated with a certain mineral that no more of it can dissolve into the urine (like trying to dissolve too much sugar in your iced tea). The undissolved portion of the mineral forms crystals that then clump together and grow into hard stones. Kidney stones usually develop in the kidneys. However they can form anywhere in the urinary tract. This condition is medically known as urolithiasis or nephrolithiasis.

The Australian Guide to Healthy eating

A food selection guide has been described as ‘an educational and promotional tool which converts scientific knowledge of food composition and nutritional requirements for health into a practical guide for food selection’ (7). The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating is a tool which can be used by health and education professionals and the food industry to promote good nutrition in their work.

Dietary Fats: Total Fat and Fatty Acids

Fat is a major source of fuel energy for the body and aids in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and carotenoids. Neither an Adequate Intake (AI) nor Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA)is set for total fat because there are insufficient data to determine a defined level of fat intake at which risk of inadequacy or prevention of chronic disease occurs. An Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range (AMDR), however, has been estimated for total fat—it is 20 to 35 percent of energy (see Chapter 11). A Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) is not set for total fat because there is no defined intake level of fat at which an adverse effect occurs.

Ketosis and the Optimal Carbohydrate Diet

The response of 73 psychiatric outpatients to manipulation of their dietary intake of carbohydrate was studied with respect to symptoms of anxiety, depression, and dys-perception. In particular these symptoms were evaluated in three conditions: in ketosis, at the transition point from ketosis to non-ketosis, which I regard as an "Optimum Carbohydrate Level" (OCL), and at a higher carbohydrate intake, above 120 g per day. Ketosis was associated with improvement in 28 percent; the OCL was associated with improvement in 68 percent; and carbohydrate intake over 120 g per day was associated with improvement in 12 percent.

The Wonders of Vitamin D

If you’re sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, you’ve picked up the right book. Vitamin D deficiency is rampant in the United States today. It’s mind-boggling how many health problems have a D deficiency element. The very important message this book conveys is that by correcting your vitamin D deficiency and fixing the acid-base imbalance in your diet, you can get a new lease on good health once and for all!

The Alkalarian Diet

Dr. Robert O. Young, a nutritional microbiologist, is a pioneer of analyzing living blood cells. Dr. Young has spent years researching diseased and healthy cells under the microscope. He found that unhealthy cells appear dark and mis- shapen, while healthy blood cells are round and vibrant in color, practically glowing in comparison. Dr. Young set out to find what caused this “inner light.” He discovered the essence of life is derived almost exclusively through plants, and that every cell in the body needs the light derived from green plants. The greater the amount of green foods consumed in the diet, the greater the health benefits achieved.

Diet Intervention for Gastroparesis

Gastroparesis means stomach (gastro) paralysis (paresis). Other terms used to describe this condition are: gastric stasis, gastropathy, slow stomach, sluggish stomach and diabetic enteropathy (in those patients who have diabetes mellitus). Under normal conditions, the stomach is a flexible sac that can stretch and shrink, mix and churn, and eventually empty food into the small intestine. The word gastroparesis is used when a patient’s stomach empties too slowly. Everyone’s stomach is unique, so the ability of the stomach to empty can from one patient to another.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Gastroparesis

In humans the gastric pacemaker is an ill-defined collection of cells on the greater curvature of the stomach, formed by the Interstitial Cells of Cajal. We recognize that the pacemaker is responsible for generating the intrinsic electrical rhythm in the stomach. The gastric pacemaker, in conjunction with the enteric nervous system, is responsible for the changes in gastric motor activity over the next several hours as you progress from a fasting pattern to a fed pattern, after eating your breakfast.
