The PAX History


PAX at Home

PAX is a father of 5 and happily married to Jennifer, the love of his life. They are raising their family in the suburbs of Chicago.

PAX has endowed scholarships at De La Salle Inst. for inner-city youth to obtain a quality HS education. He is the co-founder of the Pillars Club, a mentoring group for grade school-aged boys to reach Chicago’s youth before the gangs can.

From the Pits to the Screens

As trading evolved from the pits to the screens, PAX evolved with it. He quickly found that managing his positions with capital preservation at their core is the most critical aspect of successful long-term trading, whether in the pit or on screen.

While continuing to screen trade full-time, PAX became a partner and principle in proprietary trading and clearing firms. It was at these firms he began to coach and mentor traders. From his desire to serve others, he discovered a passion for helping traders create a solid foundation for their careers and guiding successful traders to take their careers to new and higher levels.

Rebuilding a Career

Disaster struck in October of 2011, the collapse of MF Global withheld the majority of PAX’s account, he went from being one of the largest traders in the pit to broke overnight.

PAX had to re-evaluate his trading career and navigate the devastation to continue providing for his family.

The early years

Matt “PAX” Kenah started as a runner on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) trading floor in January 1988. He quickly realized this was the place for him. Without knowing anyone on the floor, he worked his way up from a runner to a top paid arbitration clerk for one of the most significant orders filling brokers in the front month Eurodollar pit.
