Hi!  Welcome to my blog!  I'm a full-time options trader and part-time options instructor.

Many of my options trades are listed in this blog.  You will notice that my trading strategies are relatively simple yet consistently profitable.

I, like many successful options traders, SELL options and GET PAID up front.  The probability of success is much higher when you SELL options.  


Watch my FREE VIDEO with step-by-step instructions on how to SELL put options (31 minutes long).




If you're ready to start making some real money, e-mail me today and learn from a successful trader (click here for general prices).  

All trainings are conducted online via live video-conference so you can start anytime and learn at your pace.

On 1/19/2017, these short puts went in-the-money and it would have cost $2.62 to buy them back.
