Considering EB-1 application (research)

I have been working as part of a research group in a bank over the last 4 years. I am a ranked research analyst on wall street and My work has been quoted in popular media, our research has been uploaded to government organisation webpages and have been referenced by government officials. I have also published 50+ articles over the last 2 yrs. The catch is that I may be moving from a research role to a trading role (my primary function will not be research). What do you think my changes are for EB-1 (b) and would this change totally eliminate me from applying?

There are two ways to approach this: Extraordinary ability alien (where the position need not be connected with research) and Outstanding Researcher, if you intend to go back to research upon approval of your green card.
