Dan Sugar is a third generation Chicago floor trader whose grandfather was at the Chicago Butter and Egg Board for twenty years, which became the
Chicago Mercantile Exchange in 1919. His father, Justin, started at the Chicago Board of Trade in 1950 and
was a broker and trader in the Corn, Wheat and Soybean pits, retiring in 1982.
Dan has several years experience as a floor trader but decided to change paths and began trading Stocks, Futures, Options and
Forex Currencies from the screen.
His mechanical approach to risk management is designed to
maximize opportunities by taking the emotion out of trading. He
understands that for traders to be successful, they must develop
their own specific trading plan and style consistent with their
personality, objectives and risk temperament. In its purest form,
trading comes down to risk vs. return.
Dan derives great professional and personal satisfaction from
helping students at Online Trading Academy take responsibility and control of their future.
His goal as an Online Trading Academy Instructor is to help students gain financial independence by sharing
his vast knowledge and real world experiences, as well as
giving Online Trading Academy students the rules and tools which have been developed to help them become successful.
