Ten years later, former pro basketball player Ilan Levy-Mayer joined after receiving a Master’s of Business Administration in Finance/Marketing from The Hebrew School of Jerusalem.


Upon joining Cannon Trading Company in 1998, Ilan Levy-Mayer immediately went to work on spearheading its online services. As a result, Cannon soon became one of the very first futures brokers in the United States to offer online trading, effectively eliminating the necessity for in-person trading through such traditional trading venues like an exchange floor.

Along with a variety of domain names Meir bought in 1995, Cannon Trading Company found itself in a unique position to successfully and profitably navigate the online futures brokering market of the early 2000s, which at that time was an uncertain, uncharted realm to the majority of the international futures brokering industry. In 1999, they officially launched Cannon’s online futures brokering division, and became some of the first pioneers of the online futures brokering market in the United States.

Designed by futures brokers for futures traders, CannonPro is truly the software for a trading experience unique in it’s kind.

CannonPro is not the first trading software developed by In 2014, parent company Cannon Trading Company released Shogun Trade Executer, a trading program designed to develop a futures traders’ skillset by protecting profits and losses and offering unfiltered and free data. Particularly appealing to both seasoned professionals and first-time traders, Shogun Trade Executer was another successful venture in Cannon Trading Company’s futures brokering history.

Shogun Trade Executer was preceded by Day Trader Lifeline, a complimentary service that allows self-directed futures traders to get in touch with their broker immediately if they are in a situation where they can’t manage their risk effectively (such as being stuck in traffic, your computer breaking down, losing your internet connection, etc.). This is offered as an alternative to calling busy clearing houses directly for quick changes to your risk only to be stuck on hold for an undetermined amount of time waiting to speak to a representative who may only have a fixed amount of control in regards to your account, greatly increasing the chances of placing your account and risk in severe jeopardy. In addition, Day Trader Lifeline subscribers get daily resistance levels and direct futures broker support (i.e., their phones are always picked up by working futures brokers during futures market hours; never an assistant or answering service).

A successful tool that has only grown in value over time, Day Trader Lifeline is still offered today as a service Cannon Trading Company prides itself on as a key self-directed client feature.
