Melting Ice Financials LLC, a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA), announces the launch of its managed futures options trading program.

Melting Ice Financials LLC, a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA), announces the launch of its discretionary managed futures options trading program. Its goal is to achieve capital appreciation via the sale of options on commodity futures.

“The discretional managed futures options trading program operates under the theory that options are decaying entities—like ice melting into a pool of water,” explains Melting Ice Financials’ founder and principal, Hassell Rather. “Options on futures are sold with the desire to collect the premiums and let time pass so the options expire worthless.”

The Melting Ice Program writes options including, but not limited to, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil, corn, soybeans, and gold with an expiration of between 30 and 60 days.

Hassell Rather holds a finance degree from the University of Alabama and was a successful restaurateur in the Birmingham area. While working in the food service industry, he noticed price fluctuations of food products which lead to his interest in trading commodity futures. With the exception of one, he sold his restaurants, passed the Series 3 examination, and successfully pursued his goal of starting a CTA. Hassell Rather is a registered AP with the CFTC and an associate member of the NFA.

Melting Ice Financials also unveiled its new website— —developed by Gate 39 Media, a financial services marketing and technology agency.
