More on Jeff
Jeff Waters began his derivatives trading career in 1995. Jeff truly climbed the ladder of trading by starting at the very bottom rung. He was first a runner/clerk on the fast paced floor of the CME in the mid 90’s. His aptitude and work ethic was apparent to all around him, and Jeff was given the opportunity to trade independently in 1996. Jeff did not disappoint…he knew that success in the world of high finance takes dedication, sacrifice, and resilience…true staples of who Jeff Waters is as a person.
As the markets shifted from wild floor trading to efficient electronic platforms, Jeff (along with Jim) were the Lewis and Clark of this new frontier. Jeff worked tirelessly -and often around the clock- to become a leader in electronic trading at the CME. So much so, in fact, the CME often elicits Jeff’s feedback for program and platform improvements.
Jeff graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a B. A. in Economics in 1994.
If you ever meet Jeff: Ask him about the Millennium Fly trade and how this difficult time in his career actually became the defining moment he knew he would become an elite Eurodollar Trader.
