My name is Phil Elrod and I am a long-time futures trader and a resident of Richardson, Texas. Being a plain spoken Texan, I like to "tell it as it is". I am a short term trader and my method and system is based on technical analysis. I am a former member of the Easy Language group at Tradestation. I have a free blog devoted to short term trading: http://www,tradingbetweenthelines.com. I have written numerous articles on technical trading and several books, the most recent book is "See the Music of the Market".
