Bill Provenzano


Bill Provenzano is a 20-year veteran commodity trader of the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.  Mr. Provenzano, also known as the Christian Trading Coach, offers a uniquely Christian perspective into the world of trading and trading psychology. 


Bill says, “It’s ludicrous to think that the Bible has nothing to say about how to be a successful trader.  The Bible has over 2,300 passages that speak about money; how to make it, how to handle it, etc.  And the principles for all success, including trading success, are found in the pages of scripture!  The principles that secular sports psychologists, authors, athletes, athletic coaches and trading coaches have been espousing for years are all found in the Bible.  These principles unleash their full potential and power for positive transformation in the life of a trader who enjoys a legitimate faith in God and does not compartmentalize his or her faith to 60 minutes on a Sunday morning.”


 Bill created “Upside Breakout”, a Biblically based coaching and mentoring program for Christian stock and commodity traders who desire to raise their trading results to a higher level for a higher purpose.  Learn more at  Mr. Provenzano lives in Illinois with his wife and two children.

The game was as spectacular as we all hoped it would be; clean checking, great play-making, fast action.  What more could you ask for?  Well, I suppose I could have asked for the US to score in overtime to win the game...

From Small Beginnings to Great Endings by Bill Provenzano

I began working on the trading floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in 1988. This was a job unlike anything you could imagine. Men and women wearing colorful jackets yelling at each other in trading pits created a constant low roar that filled the air. All the while hundreds of other young men and women dressed in yellow jackets, "runners", swarmed around the trading floor distributing buy and sell orders to brokers. They resembled worker bees delivering honey to the comb. I was among those worker bees as a runner, and I loved it... READ MORE


Simplify Your Trading by Bill Procenzano

Back when John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd were regulars on Saturday Night Live, a younger and wilder Steve Martin frequently joined that outrageous cast during guest-appearances.  A relatively new face in comedy, Steve Martin fit in perfectly.  I remember some absolutely hilarious SNL moments from those days...
