MORE SYSTEM REVIEWS
You have a great 'zine and I have been a subscriber for a long time.
One suggestion: Review more systems that are advertised in S&C. The good ones need to have their horns
blown, while some of the garbage out there needs to be shown for what it is. I am a system junkie and if there
are any good, new systems out there that I'm missing, I would like to hear about them. Most traders are
system players of some sort, so please add more system reviews to your already fine magazine. Thanks.

On the other hand, I encourage authors and prospective authors to send in articles that detail trading systems
and that include performance tables. We are interested in publishing this type of research.
