Calgary Chapter of The Canadian Society of Technical Analysts

Speaker: Gordon Lewis - 20 years of options and trading experience.  He got his start in the Wheat Pit at the Kansas City Board of Trade before moving to Chicago to become a market maker in stock equity options on the floor of the CBOE.  After doing a stint on Wall Street consulting with trading firms on how to implement options trading software, Gordon moved to Arizona to pursue his MBA.  In Arizona, he worked for a hedge fund of funds where he was responsible for analyzing investment strategies as well as running the fund's own options hedging portfolio.  After the financial crisis shook up the hedge fund industry, Gordon moved into the online investment research business. He's been publishing online research and trading strategies for six years.  Gordon has successfully managed multiple options trading services for hundreds of subscribers during that time.

While Gordon is interested in all aspects of options trading, he considers his strongest area of expertise to be in the realm of options volatility.  He has thoroughly studied the dynamics of volatility and options pricing and believes there is abundant opportunity to capitalize off this knowledge in the options markets.  Gordon has an Economics degree from the University of Illinois and an MBA and Masters of Information Management from Arizona State University.
