Most options traders think they can profit by ignoring price direction, which is why most options traders lose money. In this core level options trading course you’ll learn how to apply our simple rules-based strategy to options trading in order to identify your own best entry and exit points. 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. Each day's options trading course agenda contains powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

What You Will Learn

  • OTA Core Strategy

    Knowing price direction (market timing) is the single greatest edge for the options trader as your competition doesn't know how to do this properly.

  • Moneyness

    The significance of In the Money, At the Money and Out of the Money when you enter the trade at an options expiration date and everywhere in between.

  • Non-Level Playing Field

    Use measurements of changing risk ("The Greeks") to construct the right position for any market condition by predicting the future value of your options.

  • Risk Management

    Use options to manage risk in your portfolio through straddles, strangles, condors, butterflies and other tactics.

“Very enjoyable class. I would recommend anyone who is serious about making money and protecting their portfolio to take this class.”

“The options class taught by Steve can take a person completely unfamiliar with options and give them the basic understanding to start trading options with enough understanding to protect themselves from beginner mistakes that cost folks money when learning the 'old fashioned way'. WELL worth the money for the class!”
