Travis McGhee

Contributor

Travis is a financial industry veteran more than 10 years' experience navigating the markets. He started his career as a clerk for a proprietary trading firm on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, eventually earning his badge and trading in both the S&P 500 options pit and S&P 500 Futures pit. He went on to spend time managing the firm's Euro Currency options operations and later their Euribor/Short Sterling operations. After 6 years on the floor Travis took a position with the Chicago-based investment bank Howe Barnes Hoefer & Arnett (now Raymond James), managing high net worth and institutional portfolios. It was here that Travis was reconnected with the Najarians (Jon and Pete) and accepted a position with their newly-launched company, tradeMONSTER. Travis spent 3 years as director of business development, helping grow the young brokerage firm from a startup to the industry leader it is today. In the summer of 2012 Travis launched the firm FuturesANIMAL, seeking to provide retail traders with the same access to the futures market that institutional traders have. Travis has a B.A. from Lake Forest College and an M.S. in Management from New York University. He is series 3, 7 and 63 registered.

Futures: Much Ado About Nothing

By Travis McGhee
