About Us


Alliance Marketing and Trading Company, LLC (AMT) has been a registered Introducing Broker and member of the National Futures Association since its inception in 1997. Its founder and sole principle, Mr. Duane L. Glisan, combines a wide array of analytical and trading skills to serve both agricultural and trading investors. He is the primary developer of FutureTrak (and its predecessor, the Total Farm Manager Program), a revolutionary concept designed to address the critical marketing needs of producers and end users.  Prior to starting his own firm, Mr. Glisan was an account executive with Prudential Securities, Inc. acting primarily as an advisor to agricultural entities regarding marketing and risk management.  During his tenure with Prudential, the foundation of the FutureTrak program was created.  In the five years preceding this position, he had substantially the same responsibilities with PaineWebber, Inc. until its departure from this business activity.


Before joining PaineWebber, Inc., Mr. Glisan was Vice President and manager of the Commodity Futures Division of a regional brokerage firm based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  He had been manager of that division for more than a decade.  In addition to contributions to trade publications, he previously authored “Commodity Alert”, a weekly market newsletter which focused on fundamental analysis relative to widely followed commodities.   He has also been an arbitrator for the National Futures Association for cases involving disputes on futures related matters, though he is not presently active in that capacity.
