Options Investment Expert

Larry Gaines has been involved in trading and brokering commodities and financial markets for over thirty years. He started his career trading tanker cargoes of foreign crude oil for a large independent oil company in the 80’s. He quickly advanced his career to become an Executive Vice President of one of the largest international oil trading companies in the world. In this position he managed their international oil trading and marketing for over ten years from their corporate office in Bermuda. During his tenure he traded and managed billions of dollars worth of oil, foreign exchange and financial market derivatives. His trading group was one of the first to trade over the counter options on cargoes of foreign crude oil and traded millions of barrels of north sea Brent crude oil options.

Larry has also worked with a number of hedge funds on a consulting basis and in 2009 set up an over the counter crude oil options brokerage desk for the world’s largest privately owned oil brokerage company.

Today, Larry trades options and futures and is the Founder and CEO of Power Cycle Trading™, where he teaches others to generate income from trading using a disciplined systematic approach through a price cycle trading system he developed based on decades of trading experience. The model is successfully used for options, futures, eminis, and forex trading, and it capitalizes on achieving higher trading profit margins with smaller capital investments. This same model can also be adapted for swing trading in addition to longer term investing. Larry lives in the Texas Hill country with his wife and yellow Lab.
