Course Description

What is the single biggest problem when you're learning to trade Stocks or Options ?

Even if you're not learning but already have some experience, what makes the learning process frustrating ?

It's the fact that the "learning" process can be expensive. i.e. Learning to trade almost always means you lose money in the markets while you learn. Even if you're experienced, you're probably losing money as you acquire the skills, the emotional control, and the decision making abilities that are required to become a skillful trader. By the way, this is very normal, and happens to everyone. And this happens for a very specific reason.

The prospect of losing money while learning is not very pleasant. Most brokers or trading platforms have "paper money" accounts where you trade with virtual money and practice your trading. While paper money accounts are great to see and experience how your trades become winners or losers, they lack a significant component of what makes a good trader. AND THAT IS THERE IS NO EMOTIONAL INVOLVEMENT WITH YOUR TRADE. Most people generally don't care if they win or lose because they know it's NOT real money. The motivation level to make a lot of money with good trades is ABSENT because it's not REAL money, and the motivation to turn around losing trades is LOW. Once again, because it's NOT REAL MONEY. So, at the end of the day most people dump the virtual trading environment and jump into the real things, and end up losing money. What if there's a solution to this problem ???

But what if you could have a "real" environment where you DO CARE even if you don't have real money. You want to win, you're motivated to win. And you want to win BIG because you're highly motivated to win !! That's exactly what this is course is all about. Find out all the details inside on how you can master trading stocks and Options skills without taking any risks that you'd normally take, but still keep your motivation levels very high to perform well. THIS IS A VERY EXCITING PROCESS FOR STOCK AND OPTION TRADERS..SO LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU INSIDE !!!

Instructor Biography

Hari Swaminathan, Options and Financial markets expert, Trader and Investor

Knowledge. Strategy. Execution.

Hari Swaminathan is the founder of OptionTiger, a cutting-edge Options education and trading company based in Washington D.C.. Hari is an entrepreneur, everyday person and a self-taught Options expert for over 8 years. Hari has a Bachelors degree in Engineering from India, and MBA degrees from Columbia University in NYC and London Business School in the U.K

More than ever, its become important for everyday people to take control of their financial situation, and create additional income in a smart, risk-controlled manner. This is precisely my mission. Through knowledge, education and investment discipline. Options are powerful, but they have a learning curve. I've broken down all the complexities of Options in simple language that everyone can understand. The courseware uses real trade examples, always highlighting the pluses and minuses of every investment situation. Options provide the best way to take advantage of bull cycles, bear cycles and everything in between.

As someone that has self-learnt Options and through making mistakes, I can tell you Options trading is not something you should take lightly. You will hear people talking of fantastic triple and quadruple digit returns. I'm here to be brutally honest with you - 

- Be very very careful in the first 12 months of Options trading. 

- This is when everyone is the most vulnerable to losing money. 

- Your main objective during this time is to focus on learning this craft and not lose money during this time. 

Having said that, if you can get past the first 12 months and acquire the expertise in a systematic manner, true financial independence awaits. Options are a mathematical and strategic game much like Chess, and no amount of technological advances can make this skill obsolete, because the fundamentals of Options are never going to change. 

You can trade Options from anywhere in the world, regardless of how old you are. You never have to worry about job security any more because you have a skill that can produce consistent wealth month after month. 

But you have some serious but exciting work to do before you can get there, and I'm here to help you in this journey. 

Watch my Free Course for Options Trading Beginners where I draw out a detailed roadmap of what this 12-month journey looks like, and the specific strategies you should master during each step of this learning process. 

Watch my Free Mini-courses or my YouTube channel , all of which have the highest quality of education material. 

And join me in my UDemy courses, where I share cutting-edge theoretical knowledge mixed with practical insights, strategy and impeccable execution through live trading examples. 

If you have any questions at any time, please feel free to message me on Udemy.
