The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Michael Palumbo, Author of  Calculated Risk.

Michael J. Palumbo is a trader, entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and the author of the new book, Calculated Risk.  He is the founder and controlling partner of Third Millennium Trading LLC and the principal of MJP Capital, a private regional holding company focusing on both real estate and technology. 


After repeated trading success, Palumbo entered the entrepreneurship space.  He provided initial funding as the original venture capitalist for the high-frequency trading firm GETCO, which the Wall Street Journal hailed as the “High-Frequency Trade King.”  That firm was valued at $1.7 billion when he exited it to a private equity group. 

Palumbo has been featured in top business news media, including The Wall Street JournalTheStreet, and Forbes. He has been named as one of the top 100 traders worldwide in Trader Monthly Magazine and one of the “40 Under 40 Focus” in Crain’s Chicago Business. Palumbo was also featured in a special VH1 television documentary, “The Fabulous Life of Wall Street Billionaires – Ballers.”  CNBC “Power Lunch” called Palumbo “highly-intelligent, highly successful, and a big risk-taker” during an interview.
