Not many professional traders have had successful background in both futures trading AND options market making. Directional and volatility trading are worlds still far apart. Yet, understanding of both worlds can greatly help you become a more successful trader. Effective communication and teaching is deconstructing what is complex, such as buying an options strangle swap, to universal forms and functions and reconstructing it in a language to which the person can easily relate. I am passionate about sharing insights and bringing out "Aha!" responses.
