Instructor Biography

Alex Gorbunov, Option trader. Principal of AGCTA asset management company

Hi everybody!

My name is Alex Gorbunov and I have been trading financial markets for more than 8 years. I started with Forex, then switched to commodity futures and finally come to commodity futures option trading.

On April 2013 I established and successfully operate AGCTA asset management company, that widely utilize option trading approach in managing customers accounts.

On Udemy I'd like to share my knowledge and experience of commodity option trading in the most profitable, but not really popular trading methods - the option selling.

During my trading path I've made many mistakes, as all newbie's make. In my courses I'd like to share the tips for my students to avoid those time and money wasting mistakes.

I totally agree with Elon Musk, saying: "Really, the only thing that makes sense is to strive for greater collective enlightenment"

And I totally believe, that learning the process of making money on financial markets is useful for any person, who will to find financial independence and freedom to live their own life.
