Leo Melamed – Open Outcry Traders History Project

John Lothian

John Lothian

Executive Chairman and CEO

The first video we are releasing from the Open Outcry Traders History Project is of Leo Melamed. In this video, Leo tells of his start as a law student and runner, how he financed his first membership with help from his father and how many times he went broke. Three. There are lots of great stories from Leo – from how he makes his trading decisions to the impact of his career on his family and what kind of father he was. The Chairman Emeritus of the CME has had a long, history-making career.

Here is his story.
