I subscribed to the trial period of WO and UA/PTLB. Wow, this is fast paced and a challenge to keep up… BUT I’M MAKING MONEY for the first time trading options.
Whiz is just that, a whiz at the strategic, operational and tactical. I very much appreciate the periodic intel briefs for SA (situational awareness). And I get a kick out of the fighter pilot lingo… I’m retired USAFJay J.
Sound strategy, superior tactics, and the discipline to follow them. That’s what I’ve learned in my short time trading options with Whiz.
Since coming on board the weekly options service five weeks ago, I’ve profited $7,555! Not looking back!John H.
I have been an active options trader since end of 2007…I have learned a ton since then but have really excelled in Whiz’s weekly briefings. For starters, his approach and methodology are very user friendly/sensible. He has reinvigorated the way I approach trades and helped my P&L. A very welcome breath of fresh air in one of the most puzzling markets of our time. Thanks Whiz!!!Amanda H.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
Fairly new to trading options but I pulled the trigger with Whiz on the WO program and I’m not looking back! He’s done an outstanding job teaching me the nuances of these afterburner trades and the discipline required to stick with your overall strategic mindset of how to profit no matter which way the market is going. This program is not for the faint of heart and it often requires what Whiz calls “lucky strike” moments where you need to sit back, relax, and take a drag. Inevitably though, by the end of each week, the strategy established and the tactics employed to capitalize during that week pay off. In just three weeks of coming aboard with Whiz, I’ve profited $6,800.
Nice call in yesterday’s UA on APPL, 600/605 bear call spread. Up $1500 in less than a day 🙂
Hi Whiz. You’re making me rich. Check out INTU…a no-brainer monthly IC for the last 6 months. My way of paying it forward. Thx.
I don’t think you will remember this, but I was at your 11:00 webinar when you were live trading your account. I learned 2 things, The Delta and Top Option Vol. I just wanted to thank you for your lesson. Stock pays a great divvy. Maybe that is why it went up. Again thanks.
Whiz, I want to thank you for putting together the TGO training. I’m studying for the series 7 license right now and am blowing the options questions out of the water thanks to your Primary and Intermediate Options training. Thanks Bro!
This is my second go around with options trading. The first time was not a complete failure but I didn’t turn on many win lights either (win lights? a drag racing term)—sorry. I’m still paper trading with your services, soon to go to the real world. On paper, and I treat this exactly as I would real time, I’m up $12,000 plus and waiting for Friday expiration. This in about a 2 week time frame. Probably won’t do that every 2-week period but I’m damn sure gonna give it a good go. After fighting cancer for over 6 years with my wife and a year stint of prostate cancer for me, I’m ready to quit worrying about my retirement money and get to trading, where now after a good confidence builder from the whiz man and his gang, I have every confidence that I will be successful. Thanks Whiz—I appreciate it more than I can say!
Your SITREPs are extremely informative, I really enjoyed them. Keep up the extraordinary effort!
Your briefing paper excellent, clear and to the point prior to the happenings based on what you know at time of writing. TKS
