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 maximise your profits!

“The Options class with Matt Gildea is a rewarding challenge for anyone interested in learning how to trade Options. Matt is a brilliant expert in this asset class. Be prepared to be mentally challenged. Make sure to definitely do the pre-essentials for this asset class - for sure!! If you aren't clear on the terminology, you'll fall behind. It's a powerful class and I'd recommend it, but make sure you have your Core strategies and understanding of stock trading down!”
