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 leading NYSE oil company in the 1980s in their Houston and Singapore offices. 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 trading for over ten years from their headquarters in Bermuda. 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. During his tenure, he traded and managed billions of dollars worth of oil, foreign exchange and financial market derivatives including futures and 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.
Following a passion to teach others how to trade options, Larry launched PowerCycleTrading.com in 2009 where he teaches a low-risk disciplined approach to trade through a price cycle trading system he developed capitalizing on decades of trading expertise. The model, now available for use with all major brokerage platforms, is successfully used by his clients for options, stocks, ETF’s, Futures and Forex trading to increase the probability of achieving higher profit margins with smaller capital investments. The model is also applied to longer time frames by swing traders and longer-term investors for lowering systemic market risk.
Larry lives in the Texas Hill Country with his wife of over 30 years and their white Lab. He has two young adult sons.
He is honored to have served well over 1,000,000 traders in his programs, webinars and trading club, many of whom have been clients for years.
