SOLD! The Lewis Borsellino Story - aired on tastytrade
Dec 11, 2015
By: Jenna DiMaria
There were some legendary traders in the pits of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), and Lewis Borsellino was one of them. Borsellino swept in from the south side of The Windy City to become one of the biggest traders in the S&P pit during the primetime of Chicago pit trading.
Borsellino has a vocal personality, an almost preternatural understanding of the markets and a take-no-prisoners approach to trading. He is the subject of a new tastytrade documentary, where he tells his life story in his own words. SOLD! The Lewis Borsellino Story, documents the ups and downs of one of Chicago's most colorful traders.
Produced by tastytrade, the documentary aired Friday, December 11 live on the tastytrade network. Immediately following the premiere, Lewis Borsellino was in the tastytrade studios for a Q&A with tastytrade LIVE co-hosts Tom Sosnoff (co-CEO) and Tony Battista, both of whom have been trading in Chicago for over 30 years.
Now that you have all the info about the documentary, watch it here!
So far, we've gotten great feedback from viewers...here's what they've been saying:
I'm still trying to catch my breath. Thank you Mr. Borsellino for putting it all out there. Incredible story!!!! @tastytrade— Kimberly Deprey (@kimberly_deprey) December 11, 2015

Earning a certain average profit per month by selling premium is something of interest to many investors and traders. Until now, no one knew how much extrinsic premium needed to be sold to generate a targeted average monthly profit. We’re about to change that.

One similarity tastytraders share is enjoying stories from market veterans who helped pave the road we hope to build upon. Tom recently sat down with his uncle, famed investor Martin Sosnoff to discuss how Martin became involved in markets and his approach to investing.
