Wayne Razzi was raised in a small town in New Jersey nearby Philadelphia, PA. He studied finance and economics at Drexel University before starting his career as a trading assistant for an options market-making firm on the Philadelphia Stock Exchange in 1992 and he’s remained options-focused ever since. Shortly thereafter opportunity brought him to Frankfurt, Germany where he helped launch an electronic options trading desk for Crédit Commercial de France (HSBC France) on what is now known as the Eurex.
His entrepreneurial instincts and intuition led to a career of exploration into equities and options research that produced a joint-venture with IVolatility.com and Egar Technology. He’s been a practicing technical/research analyst and financial software developer over the course of his career in addition to his options trading and trading system development. Wayne served as an options theory and technical analysis instructor for many of the trading firms that he’s been associated with over the years. Additionally he was a key member at Options University during which time the company was ranked #2 in the Top 50 fastest-growing, privately-held education companies and #276 fastest-growing privately-held company in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine.
More recently he’s worked with Pete and Jon Najarian’s Option Monster Education where he served as a senior educator/trainer. He’s also published dozens of educational articles, taught structured and open form online classes, developed course materials and software tools while regularly providing economic and market forecasts for students and subscribers. Never at rest, he spent time as a professional financial advisor and market commentator for several years during which times he held series 7 & 66, and is currently completing the final CMT requirements to officially become a Chartered Market Technician. He and his wife currently live in constant motion with their four children in a small town dotted with Palmetto trees and cresting waves in coastal South Carolina’s Lowcountry.
