“As a newer trader wanting to achieve my Why, I valued this class as another layer to building my knowledge and skill. When I started this class, my experience with options was less than favorable. That was because I had no idea of what I was doing. After spending the last 5 days with Russ, I now have a beginning to start from that is much more rule based and guided. Knowing when and how to execute a particular type of option, and positioning the correct amount of risk, is peace of mind. Thank You, Russ.”
