Steve Bobbitt became interested in the markets in 1990, after having lost a substantial amount in the dot com bust. He decided that was the last time that would happen to him and set about getting an education.

Steve learned about the derivative markets while studying for a finance degree and again while getting his MBA. He went from broker-offered funds to trading options, and now manages and actively trades his own accounts.

He has successfully traded various products including equities, mutual funds, ETFs, options, commodities, metals, and futures. Steve compiles numerous facets of data on the various futures products and incorporates them into his trading strategies. As a student of the markets, Steve studies the works of early market pioneers and applies various techniques in conjunction with their work. As a result, his strategies revolve around simplicity and higher probability setups.

He takes great pride in passing on his vast knowledge to aspiring traders as an Online Trading Academy Instructor.
