My sincere thanks to these former pit traders whose stories made for entertaining and informative contributions to this work: William G. Salatich, Jr., from the cattle pit, Joe Orlick from the corn pit, and Joseph Santagata and James Gallo from the copper pit. Thanks to my editors at Pearson—Jim Boyd, Jovana Shirley, and Kitty Wilson—for making my thoughts flow much better. Jim, thank you for persuading me to do this latest edition. I did the best I could, and the result is the best to date. Thanks to the people at CQG who made the charts possible. Thanks to my best clients, who choose to put up with me, and my beloved wife, Sherri, who has no choice.
