Marlene Sackheim

With a Master’s in education and a background in healthcare, Marlene Sackheim has been trading index options since 1985. Initially, she mainly used a variety of spread techniques but as time went on, she realized she had the most success in markets that were either neutral or had a downward bias. Her success as an 'instividual' (an individual who trades like an institutional investor), allowed her the opportunity to ring the bell at the Nasdaq stock exchange in 2011 as well as  interviews by both the Wall Street Journal and Forbes in 2009.
