What Students Are Saying

“Learned so much from the Options Course. I had traded Options before but without any knowledge of particulars on bid/ask spread, entry price and why, exit price and why, targets and how to find them. Never had access to any screening info.”

, August 2018

“OTA made a great program to ensure that everyone who enrolls can see Options in a profitable way that's opposite to popular belief that it is risky and difficult. Yes it is complex, but in this program they made it a lot easier to understand and, more importantly, taught us how to trade with CORE strategy and the right time to do it.”

, August 2018

“Although I knew about options, I really didn't know about the Greeks and what values I need to look at. This class definitely helped me with the Greeks.”

, August 2018

“I have traded options before and learned by trial and error and subscribing to newsletters. Taking the options class at OTA is so much more, starting with a basic understanding, to having many tools. In addition, there was much time devoted to practice and the instructor being available to evaluate and gently correct.”
