About Us


We Provide Options Education and Trade Alerts


What We Are Not: We are not a financial analyst, nor a stock or options guru who guarantees that following our advice will make you millions. We strongly advise subscribers of this website to do their own homework and trade only what suits their risk tolerance.


What We Are: We offer a combination of a high quality education and actionable trade ideas. We are trying to educate you about options. We are trying to teach you about risk. We are aiming for steady and consistent gains with minimal risk. We provide mix of short and medium term trading ideas based on Implied Volatility.


"Our world needs less gurus and more teachers. Gurus are about helping themselves become successful - teachers are about helping others become successful."
- Joseph C. Kunz Jr.




Why are we different?


  • Check out our performance and see how we make money in any market.
  • We list every trade, both winners and losers, on our track record.
  • We provide complete transparency. Our performance is based on real fills, not hypothetical performance.
  • We provide a complete portfolio approach.
  • We explain every trade we make and we execute every trade in our personal accounts.
  • Our first priority is capital protection - check out how small our losers are.
  • The performance of the model portfolio reflects the growth of the entire account including the cash balance.

Please refer to Frequently Asked Questions for more details.


Our commitment to you: we want to make money with you, not from you. We execute all trades that we share with members in our personal accounts. If you lose, we lose too. When you profit, we profit too.
