About Us

Cary Artac’s market involvement began in 1986 as a trader-apprentice on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange, where for several years he studied the complex relationship between option price behavior and underlying market activity. This formative experience provided an opportunity for Cary at the Chicago Board of Trade, where in 1989 he joined a team of 30 Year Treasury Bond futures traders, identifying for them option-hedging opportunities in the adjacent Treasury Bond options pit.

Soon after his move to the CBOT Cary discovered a greater passion in accurately predicting the directional  flow of the underlying Treasury Bond futures contract, and over the next several years extensively researched a wide array of analytical methods and formulas. During this time he came to comprehend the significance in fully studying all trend-timeframes, from hourly market data spanning several days to monthly data spanning several decades. Over time Cary developed a technical process that provides accurate trend-identification results correlated with highly specific price-support levels. His unique combination of classic and nontraditional charting techniques, supplemented by an ample use of customized indicators, form a discretionary trading system of consistent reliability. Cary’s complete, interpretive system provides a heightened sense of market flow and timing – the very essence of harnessing profitable futures trading opportunities. Since the early 1990’s Chicago-based futures and options traders have been managing risk and expanding profit potential through Artac Advisory’s cutting edge analysis. In 1996, with the increasing migration away from open-outcry and into electronic-market participation, Cary transitioned off-floor and launched web based delivery of Artac Advisory newsletters. While he continues to provide market analysis to a key number of Chicago-based trading operations, since the later 1990’s Cary’s clientele have become increasingly represented by national and international risk firms, brokerage houses, and commodity producers and wholesalers.
