Not trading related...

I just want you guys to know how much I appreciate the eclectic style of music you play between segments, etc. Actually, it is all bad-ass and helps keep me going during the day. Thanks for being eclectic and fun with it.

Shout out to Dr Jim and Butler

I'd like to say thanks Dr Jim with his WDIS 101 with Brittany and Butler's Everyday Trader.

I finally decided to learn about options and this new WDIS came at the perfect time.

Butler's Everyday Trader in some ways can be a complement to WDIS.

Best regards,

Fernando

Keep doing what you do

Hey TastyTrade!

Long time "member" here, with just a note...

Please don't ever feel like you have done every single topic possible, and you are just "done". Moreover, please don't feel like you are "boring" us
by telling us the same thing over and over. Over the years I've certainly noticed that to some degree it really is just the same thing over and
over...but this is EXACTLY what we need, and what I actually enjoy. The repetition, of the same message, over and over, but in a little different way each time is exactly the right way to go with us. It is this very repetition that is the secret sauce to what you guys do. If you did the exact same topic once per month, for a year, but presented it in a little different way, that would be TOTALLY fine. I used to feel like I had missed something...like if I started watching today, I would have missed
all the important stuff you did last month or last year. BUT...I eventually realized that one can jump in on any given day, and eventually catch "everything" due to your repetition.

So...do keep it up, you're doing it right, it is what we need and like, and I likely speak for many when I say, "We are not bored by the same thing over and over!" :-)

Thanks for doing what you do,

John

P.S. I called in for help with a TastyWorks account opening issue two day ago and actually spoke to Case! Man o man...I was on cloud 9 for two
days. I happened to watch her WDIS show for many months when she was doing it live, and to actually find out it was her on the phone was just the greatest thing.

Wanted to share my good news with you!

Tom and Tony,

I informed my employer today that I am leaving my job as Principal Software Engineer. I didn't give them specifics but I am leaving to be a full-time trader! And I owe it to you guys and everything I've learned from TastyTrade. I continue to be astounded by your generosity in putting this information out into the world. Like everyone, I have taken the principles you have shared and apply them in my own way. I have had great success this past year.

From trading alone (leaving aside dividends) I have CLOSED over $300,000 in profit!! And, this was after a disastrous January and February. At one point, in February, I was down $240,000 in losses. Some of that was closing out positions my "money manager" had put me into and some was LINKD (don't even ask how over my head I was for that disaster) and the rest just the double drop that a new trader was ill equipped to handle.

But I learned so much from those painful experiences. Not enough to avoid what I have come to refer to as the Crude Oil Debacle of December 2016...another learning opportunity. But even so I cleared enormous profit. I stagger when I think about how much I've earned to overcome those losses plus $300K!

It's a big step to leave a steady (pretty big) paycheck but I've been trading everyday for over a year. In 2015 I had approximately 1800 option round trip trades. Plus directly scalping futures. That's a lot of experience. A lot of trade small trade often. I carefully track my results in a spreadsheet (makes it like a game for me) and my 90 day daily average has steadily risen (currently ~$6200/day). My one year monthly average is $60,000/month including those early disasters. For the past 9 months, it is $90,000/month. This consistent result and improvement has given me the courage to bag the job and be a professional trader!

I know I sound like I'm bragging. I guess I am. But there's no one I know who can understand better than you guys how thrilling this. I say this sincerely: I owe it to you!! I look forward to meeting you in person San Diego in March (be warned: there may be more bragging...let's hope so!)

With enormous gratitude...

No need for a PhD

Hi Tom and Tony,

I cannot thank you enough for busting the myth that Options trading is rocket science and one needs a PhD to trade in options. I have been a stock trader for many years and recently decided to explore Options. Most of the material on internet (blogs, tutorials or videos) depicted the concepts of Options trading as hieroglyphics and impossible to understand. I was about to give up on trading options, when with stroke of luck, came across the series of videos from Tastytrade - Options Trading for Beginners - Level I .

After watching the first video, I was completely hooked to it. The way Rachel and Ryan explained the concepts, it was mind blowing. It immediately started to make sense. I viewed all the levels, signed up on dough platform and have been spending at least couple of hours daily watching your videos.

Pretty excited and eagerly waiting to sign up for tastyworks so I can begin my options journey. Thanks for helping me in this dream. Your team is wonderful !

Thanks,Vivek

There are 'options' in life

Keep surprising and delighting us!

Never sent an email to anyone other than friends or family before.

I have watched and enjoyed Tastytrade almost from its inception, though unfortunately not able to do so daily on a regular basis.

Kudos for the tastyworks platform,(gonna save a bundle on commissions!) eagerly awaiting my invite. Long time tos'er, gonna transfer everything. Told others about it, they all signed up and spread the word. Snowballing.

I was very glad to hear you say that you were going to change trading permissions for IRA's. Those "greedy bastards" need to hear the loud sucking noise of hopefully millions of accounts leaving their money-grubbing, sweaty hands, as they watch in horror as you once again show the world of finance what the phrase 'innovative disrupter' really means.

I think your legacy will be 'He was the only person in finance who gave a crap about the average joes and jills'. 'Nuff said.

Keep surprising and delighting us!

Is it Christmas?

I'm so excited...waiting for my invitation for tastyworks.... haven't felt like this since the christmas of my 9th year waiting to see if I was going to get my Daisy BB gun.. couldn't sleep then can't sleep now (that was about 62 years ago) Have been trading the Tasty trade way now for about 9 months and am a true believer and have done very well. Thank you...

Spreading the word

I was on a conference call sponsored by Trade Like Chuck last night with over 25 people on the call. The subject of fees on brokerage houses came up. When I told everyone about Tastytrade everyone gasped and asked me for more info. I just told them to go to the website and all the information will be there. I also shared the same information with my morning group. I'm so excited about the future.

PEACE OUT Financial Advisor!

Dear Tom and Tony,

Thank you so much for the work you do.

In 2008 I was scared out of the market after applying the failed strategy of picking a direction and buying single calls and puts. I lost about 30% of my $3000 which was devastating to me, not because of the lost money, but because I felt the learning curving was too great for someone that's not in the field of finance. I even went into debt $5,000 to pay for an Investools course which motivated me, but did little to teach me on the subjects I wanted to learn. At that time, there was just no way for someone in college with little money to learn how to trade. It seemed like the only people making money were the people selling education to those who already had achieved wealth. That is until TastyTrade.

I was introduced to TastyTrade when I first watched "Mike and his Whiteboard" on adjusting Iron Condors. I knew the mechanics of Iron Condors but was always scared of my potential max loss. After viewing the video, I felt so enlightened. "You don't have to accept max loss if you adjust the wings on the untested side of the trade"? It was brilliantly simple. Since then I was hooked on TastyTrade.

After watching for a few months and making about 60 trades over 3 months, I decided to leave my financial advisor and manage my own account. He looked at me and laughed at the idea that someone would take on so much risk with options trading. To which I politely explained a very important concept I learned from you. Options trading is actually less risky when using the right strategies to trade around a core position, managing deltas, reduce cost-basis, and adjust directional bias with your own comfort level. I then showed him the list of mutual funds he had me in and explained that a huge portion of my portfolio were in funds Beta Weighted at 0.995. I asked him "Why am I paying you 1.35% of my entire account to get me into mutual funds that charges me another 0.8% for something that trade identically to SPY?" I knew I was making the right decision to leave when he had a hard time understanding Deltas, Beta Weighting, and using options to reduce cost basis. He was also puzzled when I told him I felt more at risk with highly correlated and directionally opinionated mutual funds than managing my own neutral trades and reducing cost basis. I won't mention the company but the initials are E and J.

My current account is performing far better than my previous portfolio. TastyTrade has given me the confidence and the tools to trade successfully. The last piece of the puzzle is keeping my commissions low because currently they eat up about 50% of my profits. However, TastyWorks has now solved that.

TastyTrade has changed my life and helped me secure my financial future. In return, you've only asked that people watch your content and educate themselves. You both have empowered me through the content you provide and never asked for money. I can't thank you enough for the hard work you put into TastyTrade. You've gained my loyalty and my deepest appreciation. Now the only probability I can't calculate is whether or not I can pull off a TastyTrade beret in public. I also need to dust off the old TOS monkey now that it could be a collector's item.

Thank you
