In our newest conversation on Bespokecast, we spoke to Pete Najarian, Co-Founder of Investitute. Pete is a long-time contributor on CNBC’s Fast Money and Fast Money Halftime Report, and a financial markets veteran with experience across the options world including the CBOE’s pits where he got his start. Prior to entering the financial industry, Pete played for the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the NCAA and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings in the NFL. We loved talking to him about his experience playing football, how athletics helped him in the industry, and what he thinks about the future of the game. Our conversation also touched on the skills necessary to have success trading options, some detail on strategies he uses to stay ahead of the market, and the impact of volatility products like VIX-linked ETFs or ETNs on the market for single name equity options. If you’re interested in options, be sure to visit Pete and his brother John’s site — Investitute — where they run their “Unusual Options Activity” service. We learned a lot chatting with Pete, and we hope you enjoy listening!
