Tom Gentile is one of the world's foremost authorities on stocks, futures, and options trading.
With nearly 30 years' experience in the securities industry, Tom is regarded as America's #1 Trader. Known as a master of developing rules-based trading strategies, he has invested millions of dollars to develop the most technologically advanced investing tools in the world. And his readers have benefitted from this breakthrough programming by being introduced to trades worth millions of dollars in profits.
Starting his investment career from his parents' home in 1986, Tom quickly climbed the ranks of the American Stock Exchange. In 1993 Tom and a group of partners stared an educational company called Optionetics, which became a leader in the field of options education.
Optionetics was sold in 2009 to optionsXpress, and eventually to Charles Schwab and Company for a sizeable sum. After helping to facilitate a smooth transfer to Schwab, Tom could've easily sauntered off to a cozy retirement.
But that kind of thinking is not a part of the Tom Gentile DNA!
Tom is also an author and co-author of over a half-dozen books, including The Options Course, The Volatility Course, The Index Course, and The Stock Market Course, each of which is accompanied by a hands-on practice workbook.
Tom has appeared on financial programs featured on CNBC U.S. Europe and Asia Squawk Box, Bloomberg, Reuters, and Fox Business with Neil Cavuto, and is a contributing columnist to Stocks and Commodities Magazine.
