It is with heavy hearts that we received and share the news of the sudden passing of George Fontanills, a member of the Traders' Library Trading Hall of Fame.
George was dedicated to educating retail investors on the intricacies of floor trading options strategies. As a pioneer in delta neutral trading, he appeared on radio and television shows all over the country and was the subject of a number of articles in the Wall Street Journal, Barrons, Research Magazine, CBS MarketWatch, and TheStreet.com. George instructed thousands of traders internationally on his own creative brand of trading, including options on indices and options on stocks.
His contributions to the field of trading and especially education can not be measured, and while his presence in this industry will be greatly missed, the impact of these contributions will always be remembered. A tribute to George will be hosted at Optionetics.com.
Our deepest condolences and best wishes go out to his wife Charlene and family.
