Kevin Cook was a high-frequency institutional currency trader for nine years, starting with the introduction of the euro currency in 1999. Trading 100 million per day in the hyper-kinetic world of FX spot-futures arbitrage, and making continuous markets for size to the biggest banks and hedge funds in the world, he developed skills in global-macro analysis, technical trading, and large position risk management.
Applying his special focus on the keys to success in short-term trading and the dynamics of probability and risk, Cook went on in 2008 to develop options education for the retail arm of the Chicago options powerhouse PEAK6 Investments.
Cook published important perspectives about the psychological and quantitative fault lines in risk management in the summer of 2008 in SFO Magazine. He also represented PEAK6 as a market analyst on CNBC, Bloomberg, FOX Business, and CNN by providing live commentary on equities, commodities, options, and currencies. And he launched a daily webcast from the CME trading floors on the day that Lehman Brothers collapsed, naming the show Mark2Market to highlight where risk management worked and where it didnt before and during the financial crisis.
In 2011, Cook joined Zacks Investment Research to further expand his equity analysis, research, and trading skills.
