Options Course FAQs
What's the 10 second pitch?
Learn how to sell options in a safe and sustainable way in 8 weeks - no prior knowledge required.
What will you be covering in the course?
Here's the course outline.
When will the course be held?
The live classes will be held over 4 days for 3 hours each day.
26 & 27 Jan 2024 - 7-10pm ET
2 & 3 Feb 2024 - 7-10pm ET
Live sessions are every Thursday from 1 Feb to 21 Mar at 9:30am ET
The live sessions last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on what the market conditions are that day.
The cost of the course in 2024 is $699 USD.
Why should I listen to you?
I’ve been trading options since 2013 and believe me I’ve done it all. I’ve bought options, sold options, tried the condors, the butterflies, the lizards, the wheel and everything in between before settling on my strategy.
I also post my monthly cashflow from options on Instagram and show what I’m doing to my own portfolio in my newsletter.
Most people don't offer this level of transparency into their trading, so you can follow along there first and see if you like what you see.
What’s the difference between your course and all the other courses out there?
The short answer is that the course is live, and I trade my real portfolio for you to see.
This isn’t a series of recorded videos where you “learn at your own pace”. The live aspect means you have direct access to me in real time to discuss and clarify any questions on the spot.
Honestly learning the “textbook” stuff about options isn’t difficult. It’s the mentality and managing of the ongoing trades that trip people up. That’s where I’ve lost money.
That’s why the weekly live sessions will be important so I can show how I’m managing my own portfolio and trades as well as the thought process behind them, and you can ask questions about your trades and get my opinion (not advice!) in return.
By trading my own portfolio, I have skin in the game too. If my trades work out and make money, great. If they don't, I'll be showing you how I manage them too.
I don’t do things half-assed. This is not going to be some 2 hour webinar you watch and forget about. It is an intense 2-month programme that will fully immerse you in the world of options, and leave you ready to trade independently upon completion.
Is your course beginner friendly?
Yes! Roughly 80% of people in my course have never heard of or trade options before. By the end of the course they were placing trades with confidence on their own.
I am confident you can do the same if you dedicate the time and effort necessary to learn the basics, and follow along the live sessions to familiarise yourself with the strategies.
How much capital do I need to get started?
The absolute minimum I would consider is $10,000, but I would really recommend $20,000 - $25,000. If your capital is too small, it will limit the amount of trades you can place, which is likely to result in less profit.
How much time do I need?
I spend about 20-30 minutes a day (when the market is open), but you can commit as little as 15 minutes a week. This isn’t day trading!
What time will live trading sessions be?
Every Thursday when the market opens (9:30am EST).
I think it’s important to be able to trade while the market is open, so this session will be more or less fixed around this timeslot.
I also want to do it on Thursdays because options expire on Fridays - so anyone who can’t join in can still catch up with the recorded video on Thursday evening and still have time to take any necessary action on Friday.
What if I can’t make it for the live classes or live trading?
All videos will be recorded and uploaded within the day they are conducted for you to catch up. Unfortunately the live trading sessions need to be done while the market is open, so those days and times will be fixed.
Do you provide 1:1 sessions?
Sorry, not at this time.
What do I need to prepare?
Nothing! All you need is an open mind.
However, if you want to maximise your learning, I would recommend funding a brokerage account (or a paper trading account) that has options trading enabled so that you can follow along.
Which brokerage should I use?
For the course I will be sharing screenshots and videos from my Tastytrade account and strongly recommend you use the same so you can follow along precisely which buttons to click etc.
Alternatively you can open a paper trading account with Thinkorswim, also free.
I will not be able to offer platform help if you're using another platform other than the two mentioned here.
Will I make money?
Yes. That’s the whole point of this class!
Since September 2022, these have been the results of trades during the course
Year One (Sep 2022 - Aug 2023) - $3,422
Sep 2023 - $462
Oct 2023 - $136
Will I lose money?
If you follow my steps, it’s very unlikely unless you panic sell. Of course if some country launches a nuclear missile and the market tanks 50% in one day, all bets are off.
Can I get a free trial?
No, my time and expertise are valuable.
How can you teach while being anonymous?
I’ve told this story before, but I personally paid $700/year for many years to learn options at fullyinformed.com. The coach says she’s an older lady from Canada - but would I know? I’ve never seen them or heard them speak.
They know their stuff, I learnt a lot, and that’s all that matters. I’ve linked to their website so you can explore and see if that’s a better fit for you.
If this is going to be an issue for you, please do not sign up for the course.
Why would anyone need this? There’s lots of free information out there.
I absolutely agree! Please explore the free stuff before signing up for this.
I personally have spent over $5k on options courses and subscriptions, but have learnt a lot from Tastytrade videos, which are free.
I’m doing this because a lot of people have asked, and I recognise that having someone to teach and hold your hand, especially in the begining stages, can be useful.
I also think the market will extract "tuition fees" one way or another. You can pay someone to teach you how to avoid some mistakes, or you can pay the market while learning those mistakes firsthand.
