Crabel honored at Pinnacle Awards among other winners

CME Group and BarclayHedge, recognized top managed futures industry leaders at the sixth annual Managed Futures Pinnacle Awards last night. 

The winner of this year's Pinnacle Achievement Award is Toby Crabel, Chairman and CIO of Crabel Capital Management. Crabel began his trading career in 1980 with RB&H Financial Services. His early philosophy was that strategies should capture enduring and explainable market participant behavior. Finding these patterns particularly evident in very short-term market patterns in the futures and foreign currency markets, Toby described the phenomenon in both his commodity advisory letter, "The Active Trader," and his 1989 book, "Day Trading with Short Term Price Patterns and Opening Range Breakouts." 

Crabel thanked numerous mentors including Tim Brennan and Jack Sandner, principals for RB&H Commodities where Crabel started as a runner, Ray Cahnman, who founded Transmarket Group and trading legend Victor Niederhoffer.

Crabel Capital's approach of using scientific, evidence-based research to capture patterns in market behavior continues to this day, with Crabel leading the ongoing research effort and mentoring researchers that have joined the firm.
