Hi! I'm Chris Buss.

I am a professional full-time trader that has been involved with markets for over 15 years. I use technical analysis to seek out and discover objective long and short swing-trading opportunities. I use options in my trading to leverage these opportunities while defining my risk.

I also love to teach. Over my career I’ve presented countless seminars across the country both to small groups and convention-sized audiences. I enjoy the process of helping others develop and expand their capabilities. I bring this passion to teach and share to the site.

I look forward to helping you become the consistently-profitable trader you aim to be!

3 ways Trader's Profit Compass will help you


Trading is hard work. When times get tough, ( and they will ) it’s easy for fear and self-doubt to derail even the most dedicated of traders.

I will give you strategies to overcome the behaviors and feelings that are holding back your performance. Employing these methods will empower you to tackle the market with quiet fortitude and inner calm.


Aspiring to become a great trader means a commitment to a lifetime of learning. Ever-changing markets demand new techniques and strategies.

I will not only share my time-tested trading principles with you, but I’ll also expand your trading playbook with powerful, compelling option strategies. Having the tools, and knowing how to use them, will elevate your trading game to a new and higher level.


Being an inspired, motivated and educated trader is certainly a good start, but it’s not enough. Becoming consistently profitable requires executional excellence.

To achieve that, together we’ll develop an air-tight trading process and a disciplined trade plan that you can consistently execute with confidence.

I get up early so you don't have to.
