Influenced by his father’s interest in the stock market, Steve Suminski started trading stocks in the early 1990s using Prodigy, an early dial-up service. He successfully traded stocks throughout that decade until the tech bubble burst in 2000. Realizing he needed training, he invested in stock and options education and began teaching across the industry in 2005.
His philosophy is ‘options give you options, that’s why they call them options’ because of the tremendous flexibility and profit potential they offer in all kinds of market conditions. Students can expect tremendous passion, experience and expertise when they come to Steve’s class. As an Instructor, he understands the awesome profit potential and joy that can result when everyday people elevate themselves to pro-level trader status.
Steve’s Why is securing his family’s financial future while also supporting charitable organizations. He believes by helping others achieve financial freedom, he is helping them manifest the gifts they are meant to share with the rest of the world.

What Students Are Saying
“Mr. Suminski has a lot of real life experience.”
“Steve made learning options Fun.”
“Anyone who is trading Options would agree, it is not a simple asset to work with! This is especially true when you start working on multi-leg strategies and non directional trades in the Options 2 class.
Our instructor, Steve, managed to take away the complexity by breaking all processes into simple steps. His passion for teaching and for trading were so evident. He wants his students to be successful, and nobody in the class gets left behind. Thank you Steve, it was a real privilege to be your student!”

“Steve Suminski made the class enjoyable and interactive. Even with the students from around the world. He handled the different time zones very well. The different option strategies were interesting to learn the correct way via the OTA method.”
“I truly enjoyed the Options class. The instructor was truly excellent; and now I have gained confidence at putting the trades, without losing my shirt.”
“Steve was an excellent instructor - very helpful - explanations very clear - willing to take the time to go over anything anyone was having problems with understanding. Of all the instructors I have had, Steve was by far the BEST.”
