SMB Capital, our PnL proprietary trading desk in NYC, is recognized for its success in developing new traders from beginner to consistently profitable and then high performing trader.
We built a PnL trading desk, SMB Capital, by focusing on training new traders. Then we created SMBU, our education arm, which offers the same trader training in equities, options, futures and automated trading, as we use to develop our firm traders.
Ten years ago, when we started our education arm- SMB Training, we realized that the market was harder to navigate than when we began. It was nearly impossible for a new trader to become profitable, without advanced training and mentoring from professional traders. And thus there was need for professional trader training programs and trader mentoring that delivered these changes. SMB created world-class training programs in equities, options, futures and automated trading, so that new traders are given their best chance to succeed. Now all of the world-class training that we offer our professional proprietary traders is offered to you.
Our mission is to help you discover: How good can you be?
Most importantly to us, we do all of this with integrity, transparency, and fairness for our trading community at SMBU.
Finally, it is our hope that our best students, seek to be funded by our PnL trading desk.
T3 Live Principles
Our company was founded by traders, not marketers. We know what works because we’ve been in the trenches, trading for a living.
Our experts, including Scott Redler, Marc Sperling, Rob Smith, and Jeff Cooper have over two collective centuries’ worth of success as professional traders.
We trade with a completely open book. We don’t just talk the talk. We walk the walk. You can see what we trade, and how and when we trade it.
Trading is a team sport. And from day 1, we’ve fostered a supportive community of like-minded, goal-oriented traders. We stand together so we win together.
In a previous life, I worked for several proprietary trading firms in Chicago. During my time there, I learned a few things. I also made a lot of money. And I still use the same strategies today which I used then, albeit, with some modifications. Technology changes but the fundamentals always seem to stay the same. If you would like to get an inside look into what happens in the world of proprietary trading, I invite you to read through my site and watch some of the videos I have posted on youtube.
First and foremost, I am a trader. This site was created as a result of a need to centralize the knowledge I have been sharing publicly about trading. I recognize that there is a real need for no-nonsense trading information that is applicable to the market; rather than theory or diversions.
I have found that when you help others, you in turn help yourself. I’ve always said, Give what you want more of.That has held true with this site. I created this website for a few reasons:I wanted to give voice to different perspectives on the market and what we do as traders. This is a clearing house of views, so to speak. I also wanted to give good resources to online traders. This is information that should be made public.
Finally, I use this site like a journal. I can look back and see how I’ve grown and do things differently than how I once did. We are all growing and adapting. This is my chance to look back and review.

If you want to learn how to trade, improve your trading, or follow me in the markets, you are in the right place.
Welcome to my web site. I’m Larry Williams, and I Really Trade (unlike most educators)
Many people struggle with being successful stock, futures and commodity traders. I am here to share with you my 50 years of experience. My goal is to help you overcome the problems between you and success.
I don’t think you will find any other educators with more real trading experience. After being a commodities and stock trader for more than 50 years… I’ve developed my personal approaches to the markets. I use my own tools.
I have been an educator for just about as long as I’ve been a trader. My degree is in Journalism from the University of Oregon.
Because I Really Trade, at times hundreds of futures contracts in a week, I understand what you are going through.
You want to learn how to trade or maybe you want to learn how to improve your trading.
I’ve been there myself. I can relate to you as a short term trader, a long term trader, a day trader, a Forex trader, a swing trader, etc. – I’ve traded them all.
If you are like I used to be or if you are new to futures trading, I know what you want. You want trading indicators and trading systems that have been tested. I use trading indicators and trading techniques that are easy to follow…for stocks, futures and the Forex.
If you are looking to learn how to trade futures and commodities, need a new futures trading course to continue your trading education, or need a stock investing course, then my trading school – the Larry Williams Universityis for you. In my online futures and commodities courses and home study stock investing course, I teach you exactly how I trade futures & commodities and invest in stocks.
You are welcome to browse around and see what’s here. Kick the tires, slam the doors, have some fun!
I hope you can profit from my good and bad experiences, as well as my 50 years of research. Not sure I’ve seen it all. I still learn a new thing or two! Above all, I know this is risky! Most of the so called hot shots today were not even born when I began… I’m still here, still trading the markets.
If you are new to the world of trading…
First, let me welcome you to futures trading and tip my hat to you venturing where most people are afraid to go! The world of trading futures is a strange one with many myths about instant wealth, and losses. There is a great deal to learn.
Futures and commodities are not like stocks. We don’t have shares, we have futures contracts… We can control $100,000 of a commodity for as little as $3,000, without any interest charges on the $97,000 by using leverage. But, with leverage comes additional risks. That knife cuts both ways. Commissions are low and commodities are real. They go up and down because people must have wheat, corn, gold, crude oil, etc. There are no Stock market “Enron Games” played here.
Google my name. You’ll find lots of people wanting to teach to you trade futures and commodities like me or claim they trade like me. Lots of people with lots of claims.
A quick tour of the net will expose you to many offers of instant wealth and easy money. I’ll be the first to tell you it is just not that way. Don’t fall for the hype. Like any other profession or business it takes knowledge and skill to do well. I can teach you how to trade. I can teach you the trading skills and techniques you need. I don’t just give you the trading tool box, I give you the trading tools as well, as my students will tell you.
I think there are 3 steps for a person new to futures and commodities trading.
1) Learn the basics of how to trade, Can you tell if a futures market is ready for a big move? My course answers this, showing you my approach to position. No day trading here; you can have a job and still do this spending maybe 30 minutes a day. This is what most people should be doing.
2) Swing trading. No day trading yet. Look to get in and out of a trade in 3 to 5 days. But, I caution you, this is not where you begin. You need to know, and have traded, the basics first.
3) Short term trading. OK, you want to day trade? This is the final step — but I will tell you it is the hardest, the most difficult, and the riskiest way to trade. It is the dream of so many, to day trade, but it is usually a nightmare. I don’t think you are ready for day trading until you have been trading for at least a year or more.
When I teach people how to day trade I put my own hard cash at risk, so you can really see how it works. I have traded $1,000,000 in front of students and gave them back 20% of the profits. Day trading is not for most people. All the Forex and day trading stories that you have read about (making fortunes) are hustles. Please be very careful; use your common sense. Trading stocks, futures or Forex is very risky please read the disclaimers we have posted all over this site.
If you have already begun to trade futures and commodities…
If you are not yet making money, what do you do? Go back to the basics! My bet is that you have not learned what moves markets… you have looked at charts and indicators, but those things (Technical Analysis) by and large are mumbo-jumbo, which is why you are not making money. Just because you have been trading futures and commodities does not mean you know what is really going on.
Can I help you? I sure think so… I suspect I’ve trained more traders than anyone else in this business.
Help yourself to my site, feel free to browse around here. Check out all the free stuff. My intention has been to create a site with ongoing value as well as what most people has described as the best educational products available… and at a reasonable price.
