Investment Strategy

Robert Meara has over twenty years experience in the commodity trading industry. He founded MAD Group Investments in 1994 to leverage his varied expertise by serving clients needs from information requests and order entry through the selection of trades. From his humble beginnings as a phone and margin clerk, Bob understands the desires and frustrations active traders have when trying to make the "trade of the day". As an Operations manager and Compliance manager for Ira Epstein Inc., Bob has a thorough knowledge of what is necessary for even the most experienced trader to optimize risk reward ratios to improve chances for trading success. Bob is a registered CTA. He has experience with international futures trading including running the Chicago office of the China International Futures Corporation (CIFCO), one of the largest brokerage firms in mainland China. CIFCO primarily handled institutional and large speculators in the sugar and metals markets. Bob graduated from Indiana University with a BA in History, concentrating in Chinese language and history. Steve Ambos graduated from The University of Chicago with a degree in economics. Steve went to work on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. Since 1993 he has been a futures broker. He specializes in using charting and fundamental analysis to identify favorable risk reward trading situations in both futures and options markets.
