Q&A with Andrew Keene, Author of Keene on the Markets


How did you get started with trading?

Like many seniors, I attended several career fairs the fall of my senior year at University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. I interviewed for all types of positions - investment banker, financial analyst, you name it - but I kept coming back to the trading interviews.

At the time, all the big trading firms would come on campus. Susquehanna, Wolverine, and Botta Capital. From the outset, I enjoyed the brainteasers they asked in interviews - "How many square miles in California?" and "How much would I charge to wash all the windows in Seattle?"

Another attraction was the desire to avoid monotony, and do something other than the standard "9 to 5 thing." In the end, I got an offer from Botta and the rest is history. Needless to say, I enjoyed the opportunity immensely -- and the money wasn't bad either.

What made you trade options specifically?

Options are one of the most complex products available to trade -- there are so many factors to consider. I've talked to a lot of traders - equity traders, future traders, forex traders - and many find this to be intimidating. I'm the exact opposite - all the complexity allows for traders to run more strategies than with other products. I enjoy the freedom this complexity allows me.

It also helped that Botta stood for "Best Options Traders There Are" - options were their specialty, so it wasn't really a matter I had a choice in once I accepted their offer.

What is your favorite part about trading? Your least favorite part?

For me, the best part of my trading is being my own boss, and having no one but myself to blame if I'm not making the money I feel I should be. My least favorite part is the feeling of knowing that sometimes, no matter how perfectly I may conceive a trade, it may still go against me because the market is not on my side.

What has changed the most since you got into the business?

When I first started trading in 2001, you were just beginning to see HFT (high frequency traders) and algorithm-based firms come into the picture. The equity option markets were nickel-wide, weekly options did not exist, and there was still massive volume taking place on the CBOE floor.

Nowadays, there are only a few really active pits on the CBOE floor, both index options, the SPX and VIX. The markets are penny-wide, and the equity option volume has moved upstairs. I was a market maker on the floor - now nearly all of the market makers are computers.

What does this mean? While at the time I disappointed, and part of me is even nostalgic for my days on the floor, its actually very good news for your average trader or investor. Retail investors can now access to massive liquidity at their fingertips - from a laptop or even a smart phone. I miss my days on the floor, but it's great to see so many people have access to freedom and rewards educated trading can allow.

What was the most difficult thing in moving from the trading pits to upstairs?

On the floor, I could get away with having some of a "cowboy" mentality - I would shoot first, and ask questions later. I didn't have a choice - a broker would come in the pit and ask me for a market - I'd have to price options, or "make a market," otherwise I'd miss out.

Upstairs, I've realized I need to be more cautious in order to continue to trade profitably over time. With every trade, I have to calculate my risk and reward, my break-even points. I pre-determine all my entries and exits, and look at many other factors according to several strict processes, which I discuss in my book.

What is KeeneOnTheMarket?

KOTM is an online service that serves to educate both investors and traders on option strategies, facilitating better risk management and trading ideas. From my standpoint, my goal isn't so much to help others trade profitably, but to help others avoid losses. KOTM offers a live trading room and a premium twitter service, but most importantly we provide options education and mentoring. The LIVE Trading Room serves to facilitate what I have dubbed as the "new wave" of trading -- individual retail investors actively trading their own accounts. In the trading room, I provide 7 hours of market commentary per day. We currently have around 75 traders in our room, ranging from hobbyists to hedge fund managers. Members are able to chat with myself and one another in the room. The premium Twitter feed is a scaled back version of this: I tweet out much of what I say to the room and the positions I am monitoring. I cannot give recommendations or advice, just how I am personally trading my own money, so I just show all my entries, exits, and the unusual options activity I'm watching.

What gave you the idea to write Keene on the Market: Trade to Win Using Unusual Options Activity, Volatility, & Earnings?

The goal was the same as for KOTM - to prevent others from losing money. People are going to trade regardless of whether or not they they're profitable. I've seen too many people lose money on good trades because of poor risk management. Trades that should've worked out, but maybe a Black Swan event occurred, maybe something completely unexpected, like a legal issue. The types of losses that could've been prevented easily had the trader only sensibly managed his or her risk. I felt by writing a book, this message could reach a wider audience than I could with my trading room.

Why should someone buy your book?

Hands down, I believe this is the most complete handbook available today in terms of trading equity options. It is suitable for all skill levels - from someone just starting out trading or trading options to a veteran option trader.

What suggestions do you have for novice traders? What about experienced traders?

If you want to earn consistent profits over time, invest in your education. Keep a trade log of every trade you take, and your motivation. Review this from time to time. The same advice holds for experienced traders: always be studying, trying to gain an edge, a leg up on our competition. During my days at Botta, I would come home dead tired from 10-hour work days, but I would still study, trying to hone my craft and be better than the next guy. Don't be the guy who says 'I'll buy education one time.' Make the investment early, study hard, and keep your head up. I've been in the business over a decade, and I still spend several hours each week reading, studying, trying to enhance my knowledge and hone my skills.

Who has the inspired you the most professionally?

The traders at Botta Capital. Even though the firm went insolvent, the traders there were the best I've ever seen. I'm forever indebted to them for the skills they taught me, skills that me to having some really great years on the floor - personally and financially. Now, I've tried to repay the favor by passing this knowledge along to others in this book.

From the Inside Flap:

Andrew Keene is renowned for his ability to spot opportunities overlooked by other options traders and his uncanny talent for uncovering hidden gems by watching the order flow for unusual options activity. In his eleven years trading equity options in the pits of the Chicago Board Options Exchange, he was a market maker in over 125 stocks, including Apple, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, and Yahoo!. An unabashed equity options fanatic who now runs his own trading room, Andrew enjoys sharing his knowledge of the art and science of options trading almost as much as he enjoys trading itself.

Filled with the same enthusiasm and knowledge that Andrew brings to his many TV interviews, podcasts, numerous speaking engagements, and high-priced seminars and tutorials, Keene on the Market is the ultimate guide to understanding and capitalizing on today's new wave of options trading.

Written for complete beginners and experienced options traders alike, Keene on the Market covers a plethora of material, ranging from put and call basics, to complex options strategies such as Butterfly Spreads and Condors, to time-tested trading plans guaranteed to maximize overall trading returns while minimizing losses. It also lays out proven techniques for combining the elements of simple put and call trades into more complex, yet safer—and more lucrative—options trades.

With fascinating and instructive personal anecdotes interspersed throughout, Andrew Keene uses approachable language to demystify the basics of options trading and explain:

  • How to get started with options and find the right broker for your trading style
  • Trading tactics that include moving averages, support and resistance levels, technical indicators, and powerful charting techniques
  • Reading market sentiment and implied volatility and using that knowledge to make money in any market direction
  • Strategies for using spreads—combinations of calls and puts, both long and short, to maximize a trade's profit potential while minimizing its risk
  • Two powerful proprietary trading plans—OCRRBTT and HIMCRRBTT—Andrew developed as a floor trader and successfully adapted for retail options trading
  • Time-tested market-maker techniques guaranteed to significantly improve your probabilities in options trading

Throughout Keene on the Market, you'll also find end-of-chapter questions, exercises, and other skill-building tools.

Whether you're a novice looking to get a handle on modern options trading, an options hobbyist who's thinking about turning pro, or a conservative investor interested in boosting your portfolio's returns without incurring substantial risk, Keene on the Market is the book for you.
