What Students Are Saying

“Using Options as a trading strategy is quite unique. It does open up the World of trading in ways other asset classes can't.”

, March 2019

“Wow - what a revelation - I can make money whether my trade goes up, down or sideways!? Not the easiest asset class to learn as there's more moving parts than some of the other classes I've attended but I can see this being the most suitable for the 2-3 hours I can allocate each Sunday which is then limited to 15-20 mins a day through the working week.”

“Great introduction to the world of Options. Breaks down a complicated topic into bite size chunks.”

, March 2019

“We not only learnt how to trade Options safely and successfully, but were equipped to build upon the course through practicing the examples we had been given. I loved the instructor's style of teaching, mixing humour with pragmatism to encourage the best performance of each individual student.”

, March 2018

“The options course is invaluable for many reasons, particularly in relation to their use in protecting and insuring positions for little or no risk. Steve presented the course using his considerable knowledge and a sense of humour which kept us focused.”

, August 2017

“Excellent class - entirely provided a totally-defined way to trade that will make money. I also like that we did not spend time on strategies that are of only academic interest (noting that they are worth considering in XLT when ready). Very much like and relate to the teaching style - fun, interesting but always came back to the material required without any short changing of time. If I (or any student) cannot make this work, then I have only myself to blame.”
