Most people who trade options think they can profit by ignoring price direction, which is why most options traders are unsuccessful and lose money. In this options trading course you’ll learn how to combine our patented Core Strategy with Volatility Analysis for the best options trading approach — offering very low risk, high reward, and high probability trading opportunities. 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

4.5 stars - based on 54 reviews

“The OTA options course is not just an academic presentation, it gives the student step-by-step goals that build confidence. Tremendous improvement in course structure. OTA has removed the "Voo-Do" from option trades. The course now has an easy to follow mechanical approach to finding a candidate; selecting a strategy; narrowing down the call/put strikes; and inputting staged orders.”

“The world of options is complex but interesting. I am looking forward to learning more strategies for the use of this very flexible investing tool.”

“I always, for years now, have found Options to be very difficult to understand. Even after figuring out the basics, I've never placed an Options trade because I wasn't comfortable; it always felt as if there is another part of the mechanics that I am not aware of. The choice of strategies is staggering and I didn't know how to begin applying them. After taking Steve's class I, quite frankly, don't really see why it was so confusing before. Steve explained everything step-by-step, clear as day. I'm not only comfortable with the choice of basic strategies, I am actually kind of in love with the asset class itself - trading it; and building a trade is really interesting and the flexibility is unparalleled.”
