Scott Shellady is a veteran trader, television personality, market commentator, financial technology and bank executive, who is the founder and creator of "The Cow Guy." Shellady is known for wearing a Holstein cow splotched trading jacket while offering market commentary on television.[1][2][3][4]

He is a former floor broker and trader at the Chicago Board of Trade and filled orders in the corn pit, initially working alongside his father.

Background[edit]

Shellady attended the University of Colorado and played football.[5] He studied art and finance. He initially resisted following his father to the Chicago Board of Trade, where his father became a floor trader after a long career with Cargill. However, he did decide to try his hand at the markets and was hired by the Options Group, which later became Prime International.

After a year of trading options with the Options Group, he was made a partner and sent to London to open an operation there. He was later hired by Deutsche Bank as an associate director. In 1998, he was hired by Industrial Bank of Japan Lanston Futures as a managing director.

A fellow trader recruited Shellady to join startup Patsystems as its chief operating officer in 2000. However, after the tech crash in 2001 caused the shares of Patsystems to decline sharply, Shellady returned to Chicago and began working with his father in the corn pit of the CBOT filling brokerage orders.

He joined GFI for a short time in 2010 as a manager of agricultural commodities. He also had short stints with X-Change Financial Access, LLC. and ICAP.

In 2012 he joined the Trean Group as a senior vice president of derivatives. In 2015 he began teaching at DePaul University as an adjunct professor of finance.[6]

He joined TJM Investments in 2014 and in 2016 he returned to London for the firm as a managing director of TJM Europe.

He joined Marex Solutions as head of U.S. OTC solutions in 2019.

Shellady joined RFD-TV as a markets anchor in 2021.
