Founder, Top Gun Options LLC.
Matt "Whiz" Buckley
E. Matthew ‘Whiz’ Buckley is the founder of Top Gun Options LLC and Strike Fighter Financial LLC. Whiz was formerly the Managing Director of Strategy for PEAK6 Investments, L.P., one of the largest volatility arbitrage options trading firms in the world. He was the founder & CEO of PEAK6 Media LLC, the parent company of ONN.TV (The Options News Network) and is also a internationally recognized speaker on business leadership, execution, and risk management with Precision Results LLC.
Mr. Buckley is a veteran C level executive with extensive leadership experience from the front lines to the front office. A former decorated Navy fighter pilot, he graduated from the Navy Fighter Weapons School (TOP GUN) and flew 44 combat missions over Iraq. While on active duty he taught himself how to trade options and has been successfully trading for over 20 years.
Whiz’s unique background makes him a successful options trader. He applies many fighter pilot methodologies and techniques to his trading such as developing a well defined strategy, supported by specific tactics and predetermined exit points. He always has a contingency plan and debriefs each trade to get lessons learned that he can apply to improve portfolio performance and achieve superior execution. He teaches traders of all experience levels how to sort through information overload (trading task saturation) to ensure that they have the highest probability of success before squeezing the trigger.
Whiz teaches the Options Weapons School syllabus in addition to managing the Weekly Options, Primary Live Trade Brief, Urgent Alert, and Accelerated Retirement model portfolios. He is a source for the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, and CNBC and also writes for the financial sites Seeking Alpha and TheStreet.com.
