Learning how to trade options has never been easier.  We cover successful option trading strategies, options basics, how to do options trading and how to trade options for income.

This course will teach you how to Trade Options and Earn Consistent Returns in the Stock Market for the Rest of Your Life.  It will start where "Option Trading for Rookies: Understand Options Completely" left off and take you all the way to trading effective option strategies, such as Verticals and Iron Condors.  


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is part of two of a 3-course option bundle: 

  1. Understand Options Completely
  2. Basic Option Strategies  
  3. Make & Manage Profitable Trades 

In these three courses I will teach you how to trade options and earn consistent returns in the stock market for the rest of your life.  

I will take you from absolute ground zero of stock option trading knowledge (i.e. "what is an option?") all the way to trading different option strategies in only a few courses.  

There is no frivolous information here.  Our goal is to get you up and trading right away, so everything you need to know is here and presented in a straightforward and easy to understand format.  All the information is laid out and explained thoroughly on slides, and then illustrated on live trading platforms to show you how to use it in reality.

Myths will be busted:

1) Trading is not as complicated as professionals would lead you to believe, in fact it’s pretty easy

2) Trading does not take a lot of time.  You can do it from work or home in less than 15 minutes a day 

3) Trading does not take years to learn, I am going to teach you in only a few courses

No Fundamental or Technical Analysis is used or needed.  This program is based on strategy.  And strategy can be applied to any stock at any time.

I'm a firm believer that "Nobody Cares About Your Money More Than You Do."  I want to teach you how to manage your own money, so you don't have to pay exorbitant fees to Money Managers who get paid whether they make money for you or not.  

Young or old, everyone can learn to trade.  All you need is the calculator on your phone and you have all the tools necessary to take this course and learn a skill that can make you money for the rest of your life!

This course is for all levels: beginners, intermediate and advanced traders! All you need is an open mind and a passion to be successful!
