The Absolute Pinnacle in Stock and Option Trading Education

We are a financial education company that specializes in teaching stock, option, index, and futures trading strategies to students who are interested to trade like the pros. We provide classes, webinars, seminars, books,  and workshops—complete with proprietary materials—to meet each individual’s level and goals. Considered the best in the industry, our instructors are retired floor traders or fund managers with decades of combined trading and teaching experience.

How are we different? Most firms we have seen will do a vast amount of trades, and then just talk about the winners. NOT STRATAGEM. In our Practical Options Tactics (POT) class, we average a couple trades (or adjustments) per day. Our POT students see every trade from inception, to adjustments, to close. Win, lose or draw. There is no CHERRY PICKING of just winners, and then showing off like peacocks.

Our team of retired floor traders and money managers are not embarrassed showing you what we are doing. We believe that showing how we deal with a losing trade is often a better learning tool than just showing off the “lucky winners”. Transparency gains trust.

Just want to share this with you, I followed your [class] instruction.

The information [I learned] is already worth the one-year training cost.  

Thank you very much.
