About – Elite Money Trader

Alan Knuckman, Chief Market Analyst

There are a lot of great things about Chicago.

There’s the food, and of course, the greatest basketball player of all-time, Michael Jordan.

And my personal favorite…

Options trading.

In 1973, the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) created the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and the first options exchange later that year. CBOE has been the largest U.S. options exchange ever since.

And in 1991, my three decade obsession with options trading began on the floor of the CBOT.

Literally “hitting the ground running,” I started my career as a runner at the CBOT in 1991, where I spent 10 years learning every role in the shop, up to and including broker, by rolling up my sleeves and doing the work.

From there, I founded several brokerages, making a positive impact by developing various systems, platforms and software to teach option traders to trade electronically.

I’ve dedicated 30 years to teaching my clients how to use every option at their disposal to successfully navigate the market, whether it’s up, down, or sideways.

I’ve spent the last 17 years as a market analyst, commentator, and strategist for companies like Agora Financial, WizeTrade, and OptionsShop.

You may have even seen me on various media outlets like: CNBC, CNN, Fox Business, and Bloomberg, analyzing the market in real time for opportunities, and covering market news.

But the Elite Money newsletter is, by far, my preferred format. Here, I have the time, space and unfiltered capacity to teach you my best, most powerful strategies.

Without the fluff of mass media fear mongering and clickbait getting in the way.

Everything I teach is from experience and most of the strategies we discuss are deeply rooted in data-proven advantages.

Over the years, I’ve compiled vast market knowledge in securities, options, futures and currencies in my career as a trader. Options continue to be the most powerful tool in my arsenal.

This post-health crisis market is uncharted territory, and to be successful in this climate, you need to leverage risk control, upside and adaptability.

As you might have guessed, I’m still obsessed with options.

I’m also obsessed with teaching investors like you how to trade them better, using multiple tools, and strategies that are simple to understand and implement.
