Trading Options For Income And Profit
There are a few good training programs available that will show you how to take your knowledge about stock options and apply it in a methodical, business-like manner to create consistent and ongoing profits. Those programs can cost $5,000, $10,000, $20,000 or more, and can be a very solid investment in your options trading career...
But, maybe you're not ready to spend thousands of dollars for the privilege of learning advanced options trading strategies and techniques...
Well, there is an alternative.
Introducing The Trading Room...My name is Christopher Smith and I founded TheOptionClub.com to provide traders, like you, with a place to learn about options, to discover how they really work, and develop the skills that a retail trader needs to trade options successfully without spending thousands of dollars in the process.
Here is what a few members of the community have said...
Before I forget. Your presentations on Options Foundations are brilliant. No-one else I have seen has explained as well as you how the Greeks and volatility work .

Thanks for putting on such an informative webinar. It opened my eyes up to the possibilities when one trades properly. I have never traded options before so this was very educational. - Brian T.
btw..great group...big thanks !!!!!!! - Chris B.
I wanted to do more, though. So, I founded the Trading Room...
The Trading Room is where I help members advance their knowledge and their skills. Successful traders are experts and understand the securities that they trade. So, I developed my Options Foundations course, which teaches members the nature of what an option is and how it is likely to react in the market place.
If you do not understand option pricing, have a strong grasp of the option Greeks, or become confused about synthetic positions - you'll love this course.
For example, let's say you attend a covered call seminar where you're told that you can protect your covered call trade by buying a put option with several months until expiration. Would you also be willing to trade a put diagonal spread?
Perhaps you have been told that you can own stock and enjoy all of the upside potential while protecting it against losses by buying a deep in-the-money put option. Instead, would you buy a cheap, low probability out-of-the-money call option?
If you buy those put options, what is the nature of your risk? What is the true nature of the position are you entering? Is that what you really wanted to be trading? Do you even know what you are trading?
Options can be confusing, but only until you learn the foundational concepts behind these contracts. We can and will help you do that.
Once the foundation is built you can move on and learn about long-term investment strategies that effectively utilize options, that can reduce volatility within your portfolio, that can beat the long-term performance of the S&P 500, and that can let you sleep comfortably. You can learn to incorporate shorter term "income" trades into the portfolio in a way that does not jeopardize your portfolio's growth, but that enhances it over the long term. We also talk about adding a bit of "spice" to your trading with speculative trades that don't endanger your finances but that can provide a handsome short term payoff.
It all starts with risk management and a sound trading plan. We will not write a trading plan for you, because 98% of the benefit of a trading plan comes from thinking through it and writing it yourself. What we will do is provide you with the templates and guidance that you need to get all the benefit while not "spinning your wheels" trying to figure out what a trading plan should look like.
Do you journal your trades? Do your trades provide you with a positive expectancy? If not, we will provide you with the knowledge and the tools and will help you develop the discipline to consistently apply your risk management protocols so that you are "trading like a business."
In the Trading Room, we learn the skills of trading options "like a business" for monthly income and portfolio growth. Our focus is on high probability stock and options strategies combined with practical and adjustment techniques with a specific focused purpose. These techniques allow us to keep pace with and adapt to market changes and remain profitable.
The Reports...Successful trading requires an understanding of the market and current market conditions. We can help you with that.
Every week we issue the Trading Room's Weekly Market Report to help keep you on the right side of the market. Each report provides an overview of the broad market's activity over the prior week and an updated analysis of implied volatility.
Some option strategies work better in certain market conditions. We highlight those strategies we believe provide the greatest probability of being successful given the market conditions identified within the report.
Each report contains charts of the broad market indexes and volatility. A weekly economic calendar is also included to help you identify those scheduled events that might possibly move the market.
We go further, though. We also host live weekly web-casts to review market conditions and prepare you for the week ahead. Those sessions are recorded and added to our library so that you can download and watch each session at a time convenient to you.
All traders use tools to help them with their analysis, trade construction, and position management. Some educators want you to use their software and resources and their education centers around teaching you how to trade using their products and services.
We focus on principles - allowing you to choose the tools best for your purposes. Make no mistake, we use some of the best software and tools available to retail traders.
Nonetheless, we want to focus upon teaching sound trading principles because once you understand the principles, you can apply them using any software, trade advisory, or other trading related service you may choose for your trading business.
Sometimes good tools just don't exist elsewhere and we're forced to create our own - like our Trading Room Trade Worksheet, which focuses upon the most important aspect of any trading business - risk management.
Jumping in and Getting Started...Upon subscribing, you will have access to the core video course, which consists of 11 modules. Each of these modules contain several 'hands-on' videos walking you through the topics covered. If you would like to know more, use the link below and gain FREE access to eight videos that reveal more about these high probability trading techniques.
In addition to a detailed video training course, there are additional benefits that you will be able to take advantage of once a member of our Trading Room:
Best of all, it's incredibly affordable!
Joining The Trading Room...The cost of the Trading Room is straight forward and right now incredibly affordable. You will pay just $247.00 which will provide you with access to all of the videos, all of the presentations, everything that we offer for a period of 45-days...
You will not be asked to upgrade or pay extra for the "magical trade adjustment secret" or to gain access to more or better features. You get everything we have.
Want it for more than 45 days? I don't blame you because I would, too.
After the initial 45 days your membership converts automatically to a monthly charge of just $30.00. That's like 98 cents per day.
