Larry Gaines was involved in trading and brokering commodities and the 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 several hedge funds consulting. 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 disciplined approach to trade through a price cycle trading system he developed capitalizing on decades of trading expertise. His clients successfully used the model, now available for use with all major brokerage platforms for options, stocks, ETFs, Futures and Forex trading, to increase the probability of achieving higher profit margins with smaller capital investments. Swing traders and longer-term investors also applied the model also applied to longer time frames to longer time frames.

Larry lives in the Texas Hill Country with his wife of over 30 years and their white Lab. They have two adult sons.

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.

I have literally lost 1,000's of dollars on other systems but settled on Larry's. His technical knowledge is unsurpassed, IMO, and his knowledge of using strategies with low risk and high reward is the best I have found since I started trading in 2003. Your system is fantastic Larry!!!
Larry, I have spent many thousands of $$$ on expensive XXXX indicators the past few years. Now, I only use the PCT toolset, strategies and your continued guidance to earn profits from the markets. Much thanks,
Hi Larry, I would like to let you know that I have learned more in one week from you then I have from everyone else since trading futures in 2014. I wish I would have known of you from the beginning!
