Bat vs Bat - Best one yet


Your last session with Nick on Friday was perhaps your best. Everything you are teaching him is what all investors need to hear……It hit home with me as I have fallen victim just like Nick. ”stick to the basics”
Have a good week.

Keep up the GREAT work

After spending 15 years attempting to time the NDX at the end of the day with Rydex Leveraged Index Funds, it has been difficult to give up technical analysis. That "curve fitting" trap just keeps you coming back
for more. Foolish, I know now. That Market Measures video on the distribution of up/down days on various stocks, etf's and currencies was mind blowing to say the least.

I am finally gaining a perspective on the markets that is unique and liberating to say the least. 100+ hours of your videos has been a way better education than the dozens of trading books I have read.

Over the last 11 trading days I have opened/closed 30 option trades, either prematurely closing due to my inexperience with rolling or taking profits too early. It is hard not to take a 15-25% profit in the matter of days when you are not used to options! Several poorly managed losers on AMZN and TSLA are holding me back, but I am just about break even in a market that hasn't been good for someone as pessimistic as I am about this crazy one sided market.

The $87 in fees is the cheapest "trading tuition" around and I don't mind paying it. Averaging $3.07/trade before fees and only $0.18/trade after fees doesn't bother me one bit.

Keep up the great work that you do.

AMZN Cherry Bomb

I recall TP or TS recently saying in a Cherry Bomb that they had an idea on how to fix healthcare in America: get a bunch of docs and data scientists in a room and then post all health related products on Amazon.

Clap clap clap!!!!

Just amazing, another tremendous call by the street-smart folks at tastytrade.

Keep it up guys! You'll soon be the Amazon of Financial Services.

No... Better yet:

Amazon will one day be considered the tastytrade of online retail!

I Just Want to Say THANK YOU!

I only recently learned about tastytrade from an accountant in Tucson. Michael S. is a devout fan, and he spent much of my initial consultation with him discussing the show, the strategies, the ideas, and the coolness of Tom S. I suppose he was trying to give me a hint, but I left feeling there was maybe something inappropriate about this. Now I am so grateful to him for turning me on to it.

I really enjoy following companies and industries for their bell weather qualities in tracking the Economy, as a window into how PEOPLE are faring along their evolutionary journey. It's a hobby that I feel allows me to
engage with the world around me.

Everything about tastytrade seems right. I don't yet understand Options, but it feels like something I can learn. My goal is to study, and see to see if they and my natural intuitions align. It is enlightening watching you trade, not trying to guess the meaning of the 'news'. I have been watching Bloomberg, CNBC and before that FNN, and that never felt helpful. The stories those outlets hype as important, even as they morph into stories ever more glossy and urgent, seem to be primarily to give the personalities 'important' things to talk about. Although I'm not financially deprived, those shows always smacked of elitism and that bothers me. WE are inside and YOU, lowly viewer, are outside, and only by acknowledging our superior position can our twains possibly meet.

Don't underestimate the value you provide to viewers. I'm sure a person can screw up big time with options, but the opportunity to maximize a situation and mitigate risk, is available. I am not a sophisticated or unsophisticated investor. The fact that I am just now picking up tastytrade on my radar means there must be many, many more to follow.

I loved your 'rant' against benchmarks last week! Benchmarks negate creativity on every level.

No response necessary, I just wanted to say what I've said, which in a roundabout way is: Thanks.

Tasty Tour


It was a pleasure meeting you and the rest of the tastyteam this weekend! It is truly inspiring to see the passion for options trading and the type of decision making it cultivates.

I am 100% on board the tastytrain and do not see myself getting off anytime soon. I am looking forward to see how this trading mindset affects how I make decisions in life in the future, especially after playing “The Game".

Thank you for everything you are doing with tastytrade and tastyworks, you are really making a huge difference in many peoples lives.

Thanks again for creating a very memorable Sunday in Austin!

Ignorance is Unpardonable!

Tom, You're awesome. I've been through a lot of your videos and have found them to be phenomenal and have contributed greatly to strengthen my market understanding. The wealth knowledge you provide is unparalleled. I started with buying options and had some beginners luck. But as i researched upon I stumbled upon yr videos and it brought tears to my eyes. I could now comfortably plan my future and have reasonable expectations of future outcomes.

Please continue to the good work. Ignorance is unpardonable.

Best regards,

THANKS!! You do a wonderful job and are surrounded by some incredible talent. Funny man ‘Tony’ is a great side kick I get lots of laughs at the end of the day driving home listening to his buffoonery.. He says a lot of smart things too in-between the comical approach about trading
