Options Made Simple

The Options Made Simple (OMS) series is designed to bridge the gap between our Foundations of Stocks and Options program and our more advanced options training classes such as Credit Spreads. OMS 101 is a beginner/intermediate program which focuses on the basics of how options really work. Covering subjects like option pricing, greeks, Option chains, Buying calls and buying puts, the use of weekly options, Managing time decay, and working with stops, OMS 101 is intended to help students gain an in-depth understanding of how options work, without a heavy emphasis on strategy.

Option Made Simple 101 is the perfect options training program for both the beginning trader and the seasoned trader who wishes to know more about options. It starts with the basics and over the span of 8 lesson teaches everything a trader wants to know about getting started with options trading.

Students often ask how different the content of OMS 101 is as compared to our flagship Foundations of Stocks and Options - the answer: Options Made Simple 101 is a completely different presentation that then Foundations program. About 10-15% of the content overlaps in some way but the lessons are completely different, with different examples, different presentation, and what our students have said is an easier understanding.

Some of the highlights include the lesson on actually walking through a complete trade. The lesson on Options greeks where each component of the greeks is discussed in detail, and for sure the lesson on option time decay. Any one of these lessons would be worth the cost of the complete program, however of course we have included everything you need in all 8 lessons.

If you have been sitting on the sidelines frustrated about understanding options better, Options Made Simple is created for you. Sign up to give it a try today or contact your student success coach to schedule a call that can help determine your individual trading needs.

Trade Setup: The Breakout Trade

Everybody LOVES breakout trades because of the massive ROI they can generate in a short period of time. It’s also a student favorite because you don’t necessary need to know which direction the trade is going to break. It’s a truly neutral setup!

Using Call Options to Play With The Big Boys!

I want to show you how you can also use Call options to “Play With The Big Boys!” Even if you have a small trading account, there isn’t any reason why you shouldn’t be able to trade stocks like AMZN. This way you can trade the stocks you WANT and not the stocks you “can.”

Lowering Your Costs Basis With The Covered Call

Lack of Options trading knowledge is a significant handicap to the modern-day retail investor. Large fund managers and professional traders have used them for centuries (remember the Dutch tulips!), however I hear a common theme among retail traders that “options are confusing” or “options are risky.” Fortunately, this doesn’t need to be the case! Options are a remarkably powerful tool and with a little bit of knowledge, you can begin using them in a powerful way!
