Shownna Clarke's upwardly mobile corporate growth has taken her from TIAA-CREF Investment Accounting Associate to Credit Suisse First Boston Account Coordinator to Assistant Vice President of International Sales at one of the world's oldest and most prestigious investment firms. She is an investment expert who is wholly qualified to guide you through the relatively obscure and rewarding world of commodity trading.

"Stop working for your money and make your money work for you" is the advice that young investment professional Shownna Clarke offers to her clients, students and investment clubs. However, Clarke, former Assistant Vice President of International Sales at one of the world's oldest and most prestigious investment firms, recommends commodity trading over stock purchase because on average, a smaller investment is required and return is often realized faster. In her newly published "ABC's to Commodity Trading: the Handbook for Beginners" (2006, 87 pp., soft cover, $29.95, ISBN-0-9770349-0-9) Clarke shares how investors can turn small investments into substantial profits in as little as a few months through trading commodity options. The author's ultimate goal is to inform and enlighten African American and young investors about little-known lucrative investment opportunities in commodity (mining or agricultural products) trading.

Written specifically for individuals with little-to-no market experience - using language that is easy to understand -- "ABC's to Commodity Trading: the Handbook for Beginners" offers an uncomplicated description and brief history of the lucrative commodity market; illustrative color charts and graphs; a glossary of investment terms; and practice investment exercises to reinforce learning. In the book, the author explores trading strategies and performance analysis, while teaching its readers to trade like professionals, and with minimal risk. "I am particularly interested in helping people in an area the average investment advisor does not typically approach," explained Clark. "African Americans and young people are my target market. They deserve to be exposed to wealth building alternatives."

Clarke says, "In commodity trading, it's possible to make up to $1,000 on a one-cent price move." She explains how in "ABC's to Commodity Trading: the Handbook for Beginners." Along with a book purchase ($29.95, plus $3.95 S&H) from Clarke's website (, she will provide each purchaser with one month of investing educational support via email and/or telephone.
