About the Author

After spending seven years on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) as a market maker trading equity options, Dan decided to give back to the trading community. 

In 2005, Dan was asked to join the Options Institute at the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE). Through his work at CBOE, he began helping traders of all levels of experience to learn option trading.

Dan also provided educational material for the Options Industry Council (OIC) on options and trading.

One of Dan's fulfillments as an educator comes from talking to his readers. Email Dan.

Dan has numerous published works on option trading, including a chapter in the book Advanced Trading Strategies in Options, edited by Amandio F C Da Silva.
