Leslie Jouflas, CMT - I began trading in 1996 and left a 17-year airline career in 2000 to pursue a full-time trading career. I have studied many trading methodologies, including Elliott Wave, options strategies, momentum trading, classical technical analysis, and Fibonacci ratios and patterns. After trading stocks and options on stocks, I now trade primarily futures and commodities with an emphasis on the S&P 500 EMini market.
