Adam Packard: Futures, Simplified by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan

With experience in virtually every aspect of the commodity futures industry from phone clerk to vice president of operations, Adam Packard can be considered a “go to” person when it comes to learning about trading futures. He received a B.A. in economics from The Ohio State University in 1992 and has continued his futures education by taking several courses at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange over the years. He attained his Series 3 commodity brokerage license in 1992 and became a full-time broker in 1993 working for his father’s company.
