This week I’m joined by Bryan Wiener, to put it simply, he’s a man crazy about options. So options guys, this should be right up your alley. I have to admit there were a few moments where my lack of knowledge of options is probably quite obvious – but Bryan delivered well and truly.
So a little background on Bryan…
He’s been actively trading for just over 15 years – and what’s particularly interesting about Bryan is how he’s been involved with markets from a number of various angles. And what I mean by that is…
He originally started out as a market maker on the floor of the CME (and by the way, has some great stories which he shares during the interview). From there he later joined Haim Bodek for the rise and fall of Trade Machines, which was essentially a black-box startup which was ruined due to HFT manipulative orders.
And now days he’s the quantitative options specialist on the Sang Lucci team, as well as an independent trader.
During the interview we of course go right into Bryan’s journey of how he got to where he is now. As well as plenty of discussion about options markets, including; how options have evolved, the various types of options traders and where their edge exists, and a few things aspiring options traders need to be aware of.
If you have any questions about options (or even trading in general), leave a comment at the bottom of this page, and Bryan will respond with his best answer.
