A leading Market & Trading Newsletter

Danny worked the orders on the Chicago trading floors for nearly four decades, giving him an unrivaled feel for the flow of the market. Who else do you know who was placing buy and sell orders on the floor for that long?

For part of those years (and now over two decades), he has written The Opening Print, giving traders and investors a helping hand and a feel for the flow like no one else can.

Client Testimonials

Being in the trading industry for 20 years, I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Top Step and the forum they provide. From the daily preparation to the Opening Print & decades of knowledge, they are one of kind. The customer friendly service is top notch. Danny (aka. Mr. Top Step) truly knows how the futures markets work, aside from charts…..all the experience on the floor & running the largest S&P Futures desk has really helped my trading, as he shares all his knowledge. I can’t say enough about these guys. If you’re looking to become a more rounded trader, these are the guys to do it with.


I can categorically say as someone who has been a trader for over 40 years too, that if you are not reading Danny’s morning comments then you are trading with one hand tied behind your back. Get it. Now.


I thought I knew the market pretty well (and I do!) But Danny’s take on ‘market flow’ has given me a different perspective that I can combine with my own trading. Combined with the technical setups in the Opening Print and my own analysis work, I have solid footing going into each session. Plus it feels like I have someone in my corner who really know what’s going on — Danny’s seen it all.
