Larry BenedictFounder, The Opportunistic Trader

Larry Benedict

Larry Benedict is a 35-year trading veteran. Starting from the pits at the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), Larry’s skills grew until he was running a world-class $800 million hedge fund – where he regularly traded position sizes in the millions of dollars. He even went 20 years without a single losing year… putting his hedge fund in the top 1% of Barron’s rankings.

That’s because, from 1990 through 2010, Larry’s hedge fund never had a single losing year. (It wasn’t until 2011 that he had a losing year, and even then, the fund was down less than 1%.) In 2008, when the financial world was in upheaval, Larry and his partners had their best year ever, making $95 million for their clients.

Now though, Larry fully devotes himself to bringing his trading secrets to everyday investors – with actionable, profitable options plays and other top-level strategies that made him a massive success.
