Jim Iuorio is managing director of TJM Institutional Services and a futures and options trader.
He graduated from the University of Illinois with a B.A. in economics in 1987 and has been working on the trading floor of the CME ever since.
The majority of his floor time has been spent brokering futures and options trades for large institutional clients. His focus in recommending trades to clients has consistently had a macro economic theme and, therefore, been centered around broad market indexes such as global interest rate futures and options, equity indexes, FX and commodity futures.
Iuorio is also an active trader of futures, equities and options. His trading strategy blends macro economics with technical strategies and attempts to take advantage of anomalies in options markets.
