Positive and Negative Case for the Market

A complimentary preview
of Options-Profits Previews

Here is one of the most concise, clear articles on what traders, strategists, investors and portfolio managers have on their radar from a macro perspective. Ophir Gottlieb was one of our featured volatility educators and trading strategists on Options Profits . As the Product Development Manager for Options Profits, our core group of readers know that I fiercely support my team of contributors, and I found this informative piece from his blog that is worth sharing (click on the hyperlink).

Here is a quick bio on Ophir's experience:

Ophir Gottlieb joined GMI Ratings in 2012 as Managing Director of Quantitative Research. Previously, he had served as Director of Client Services for Audit Integrity, one of the three firms that merged in 2010 to create GMI Ratings. Mr. Gottlieb completed graduate work in Financial Mathematics at Stanford University. He holds an MBA in Finance and an undergraduate degree in Quantitative Economics with a focus on Mathematics. His specialties include machine learning and stochastic processes; in his current role, he focuses on the development of new investment risk models such as the recently launched Forensic Alpha Model(TM) (FAM). He also plays a key role in the testing and further development of GMI Ratings' forensic accounting model (AGR).

After beginning his career at Barra, a leading provider of portfolio risk and performance analytics, Mr. Gottlieb worked for Cutler Group as an equity option market maker and proprietary trader on the NYSE ARCA option exchange floor. He also served as Managing Director of Client Services and Algorithmic Trading for options analytics firm Livevol. He is the author of one of the most widely-read options trading blog in the world (Livevol Blog), and the daily "Options Expert Analysis" exclusively available to Fidelity customers on the website.
