Jack Cahn Thinking Man's Trader

In 1987 I made my first fortune using long deep in the money S&P 100 (OEX) puts in the October crash.

I gave it all back and more in 1988 and 1989 thinking that I was going to do it again and again on the short side. I forgot how to trade, I convinced myself into a one-way nature of the market and that it would never recover from the crash. I forgot the long side.

After getting beat for months and on the brink of quitting, I got a second chance when I recognized the major peak in the Nikkei Dow where I made my second fortune in Nikkei Dow put warrants. I keep the money this time and became a real trader.

So in 1990, my focus was on trading both sides long and short, system and auto trading, I developed my first mechanical trading systems – %C DT for day trading – and I became a third party strategy vendor for Omega TradeStation.

I did catch two more great opportunities in October ’97 manually short the Big S&P and October 08 again manually short Big S&P 500.

Today I provide strategy development and trading education and support services along with a large menu of both entry-level concept code and fully developed ready to trade systems.

My successful trading, trader support, and system development career have allowed me to live year-round in ideal settings.

For 5 to 6 months of the year I now live Palm Springs Southern California and for the other 6 to 7 months I live in Mooloolaba Beach on the Sunshine Coast of Australia one hour north of Brisbane on the east coast of Australia.

Great and Many Thanks,

Jack F Cahn, CMT
