James Cordier is a 35 year veteran of the US and international futures markets. As a retail broker in the 1980’s and 90’s, James developed a specialty in the fundamentals of physical commodities such as softs, grains, metals and energies. Parlaying this knowledge as a CTA in the 2000s and 2010s, he became better known as an option strategist and trusted voice in national financial media.
His book, The Complete Guide to Option Selling, has been in continuous publication through McGraw-Hill since 2004 and is currently published in 5 languages. James’ market comments and insights have been featured globally on CNBC, Bloomberg, Fox Business, The Wall Street Journal, and Barrons.
James stepped away from the business in 2018 after suffering a severe loss in the markets – an experience he credits as being the most profound lesson of his career. He founded CCR to share his 4 decades of insights on the futures markets with other portfolio managers and traders.
His new mission is to make the industry a better place by helping other professionals become better money managers.
