Mike started his career in the markets on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade as a trade checker for a local market maker in the Dow Futures pit. This led to interning with an independent introducing broker and going on to work with a number of market participants including: speculating clients, hedge clients, introducing brokers, futures commission merchants, commodity trading advisors, proprietary traders, trading educators, system creators, and a number of international financial market participants.

Sector Focus

Financials, Currencies, Indices, Energies, Grains, Metals, Livestock, and Softs.

Analysis Preference

Mike prefers to consider significant long term technical and fundamental factors, even when monitoring a shorter time frame, and staying updated on new developments. While analysis of price action, candlesticks, significant levels, key indicators, back testing, automation, and related past market behavior are given focus, equal attention is given to new developments such as fundamental shifts and economic reports.

Strengths and Trading Philosophy

Mike’s approach draws from over 10 years of experience working with all types of traders and market participants. This experience allows Mike to customize a tailored approach for each client based on their account type, risk tolerance, and a number of other factors. He utilizes futures, futures spreads, and options spreads while building on the foundations of sound money management, risk management, and trading methodology.
