Chris Butler has been working in the finance industry for nine years with a focus in options trading. After receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from DePaul University in Chicago, Chris worked at a financial network creating educational investing and options trading content for self-directed investors.
In 2016, Chris started projectoption, an options trading education website/YouTube channel that has grown to over 380,000 subscribers with over 26,000,000 views. Chris’s “Options Trading for Beginners” video has amassed nearly 15 million views, demonstrating a deep understanding of options and the ability to explain complex ideas simply.
