We don’t just teach the technical tools, we show you how to determine whether an option is overpriced or underpriced at any point and move quickly to maximize your profits!

You'll learn option trading strategies that can be applied whether you intend to make options your primary asset class, or are using options trading as a way to balance and protect your portfolio. The Professional Options Trader Course combines powerful skill-building lessons, hands-on live market strategy sessions and key interactive exercises. What you will learn in this course cannot be found anywhere else.

What Students Are Saying

“This is a wonderful opportunity to learn a very intricate commodity type. Trying to do this on your own would be foolish as the potential for mistakes could be very costly. A professional teaching environment is the only way to succeed in my opinion.”

“I have learned in 5 short days more than I had gathered in years of experience trading options. Having incorrectly traded options for many years, I now know how to reduce risk and increase my odds for success. Thank you OTA!”

“This options class was of great benefit to me. I had traded options in the past but with limited success. This class provided me with the information regarding supply and demand and volatility that will make my option trades win! I highly recommend OTA training to anyone who is serious about securing their financial future. ”

, September 2016

“This was by far the most enjoyable and learning experience I have had so far at OTA, after having taken Pro Trader 1 & 2, Futures and this Options Trading class. The instructor not only knew the material but knew how to teach it without intimidating the students. It was practical, life connecting situations linked to the subject matter.”

, September 2016

“This class blew my mind. Options is like an uber power tool with multiple attachments. As a student I need to have the knowledge to even hold the tool level and then build up the skills. It's possible, but as it is said, Rome wasn't built in a day.”

, September 2016

“At first I was hesitant to take the classes but I knew I needed the help with my investments. The Pro Trader class with "The General" helped me get the confidence and make some trades. I am trading and feeling more confident with my positions. Now, after the Options class, I think I have found something that fits my comfort level. I can set trades and then go about my daily life.”
