Rodney W. Dow


The Dow Corporation founder Rodney W. Dow has been an innovator in the development of the energy futures industry for over three decades. During the course of his career, Mr. Dow has been actively involved with a number of major Wall Street firms in every aspect of the business, including sales, marketing, analysis, trading, operations, compliance, and floor brokerage.
In addition to his consulting and clearing expertise, Rodney is also a Commodity Trading Advisor.

An early interest in technical analysis led him to develop Dow Vector Analysis, a technical tool used by traders for market timing and risk analysis. While at Citibank, Rodney created a Futures Commission Merchant devoted exclusively to energy futures, making Citibank the first U.S. bank ever to clear third party customer business as an FCM.

As a member of the New York Mercantile Exchange for fourteen years, he has served on numerous NYMEX committees. Currently Mr. Dow sits as a Public Member for the CME Group Business Conduct and Probable Cause Committee for both the NYMEX and COMEX Divisions. He is also a board member of the National Introducing Brokers Association (NIBA) as well as a member of the NFA IB Advisory Committee. Formerly, he was a member of the National Futures Association Nominating Committee for the IB category.

His depth of experience in the industry enables him to lead and guide one of the largest independent IBs in the United States and to deliver unique value to clients.

“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.”
