Barry Burns

I started my study of the markets under the direction of my late father, Patrick F. Burns, who accumulated 70 years of trading experience in his lifetime.

In addition, I hired three professional traders to mentor me personally, and even went to Chicago to work with a former floor trader at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

All of this research and study resulted in insights which eventually led to the development of my own Top Dog Trading methodology.
