James A. Kaminecki – Chief Operating Officer

Jim KamineckiJim began his commodity career in 1989 during an internship on the trading floors of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. During these early years, he was able to obtain an understanding of the marketplace as well as the detailed functions of trading floor operations. After graduating from Northern Illinois University with a bachelors degree in Economics and minor in Psychology, he accepted a stock brokerage position with a regional firm headquartered in Chicago by the name of Rodman and Renshaw. Alas, the draw of the futures marketplace was strong and he returned to the trading floors of the CME in 1994.

He then accepted a futures brokerage position with Daniels Trading in 1998. Here he worked to build the firm’s retail and introducing brokerage client base and was in the forefront of marketing and expanding the company’s technological presence called FuturesOnline. FuturesOnline was the industry’s very first browser-based order entry and account management tool. He currently maintains client relationships in over 25 different countries and has worked closely with both the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Chicago Board of Trade over the years on various marketing initiatives, including speaking engagements at industry trade shows. In 2007 he accepted a position with TraderView, a branch office of Daniels Trading that specializes in alternative investments and managed futures. He currently serves as the Chief Operating Officer for TraderView.
