Does any one know any thing about this firm?
It says Vincent Viola, wasn't he the CEO of the NYMEX or something like that?
Would be a good place to start
VINCENT VIOLA was the chairman of NYMEX Holdings, Inc, and from March 2001 to March 2004 served as chairman of the New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc. He served as vice chairman of the Exchange from 1993 to 1996, and served on the Exchange board of directors in the at-large category from 1987 to 1990.
Mr. Viola is the founder and sole owner of Pioneer Futures, which is a clearing member of both divisions of the New York Mercantile Exchange and the New York Board of Trade.
Is this the same guy? I never met Mr. Viola in person.
One and the same. I know Vinny from my old NYMEX/COMEX days.
Oh, I see. I believe he was partners with Mike Picozzi in the old Andover operation.
Looks like a different area of the business this time around. In any event, all the best to their venture.
So how exactly does one know if a firm like EWT is profitable and worth working for?
Anyone have any idea about the trading and profits that go on inside this firm?
Yes he was. He tried his best to not let people know about this. He also just bought a stake in the New Jersey Nets basketball franchise with Bruce Rattner and JayZ.
