M&R Capital, LLC (M&R), a registered Commodity Trading Advisor, primarily trades regulated livestock related futures and options. M&R has been registered since January 2015. Trading ideas and execution are initiated by Scott Shepard, the trading principal.
Scott started his career on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange trading floor over 20 years ago. He began as a livestock analyst, ending as a full CME member, floor manager, and senior livestock analyst at the largest private commercial entity in the industry.
In 2005 another large commercial livestock interest recruited Scott to direct hedging and risk management. Controlling a dynamic portfolio of futures and options, Scott was responsible for all livestock positions for the firm. He gained considerable knowledge using options as a means to mitigate risks.
