He eventually moved over to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and continued to work in an analyst fashion for some major firms in the Currencies and Indices Futures markets. He was standing right in front of the S&P 500 pit in 1987 and saw firsthand the Stock Market Crash in 1987. He left the trading floor to further his career and became a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA)/Broker for a firm and later on struck out to establish his own commodities firm which he ran for over 11 years.
