Born in Manhattan and raised in Staten Island, Michael (Oscar) Carboni stumbled upon the exciting world of commodities trading while a freshman college student visiting his then-girlfriend, now-wife, Lisa, who had just gotten a job on the floor. Soon the lure of big money in the fast-paced, pressure-packed 'pits' (as brilliantly captured in the movie 'Trading Places' with Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd) prompted Oscar to pursue a full time career on the Commodities Exchange.
Working the floor by day, Oscar took evening classes at the New York Institute of Finance. Under the tutelage of world-renowned analyst John J Murphy, Oscar became a well-respected analyst among his peers and soon started his own successful order execution, trading and analysis firm. His consistently reliable advice drew attention from investors around the world, and at the request of his clients, Oscar has traveled the world many times over solidifying existing and forging new relationships in the international community.
After many years in the pressure cooker floor environment, Oscar combined his technical savvy with his floor experience to create a unique 'hybrid' style of analysis which he has begun to share with the world through his new daily video series 'Short Term Trading Live with Oscar', which is available through his website www.futurestraders.com and on Youtube.
