I'm that guy!

Forgive me for being that guy for a minute. I may be getting ahead of myself since I've only been trading options for about three months now, but this short journey has been absolutely life changing.

I used to trade futures on the ten-ish minute charts, and I spent a couple years neither making money or losing money, but the mood swings were catastrophic as I dealt with realized losses of three percent one week then gains of 2-3 percent another week. Trading options is so much

I still have a little bit of PTSD, needing to check my phone every few hours, but I'm recovering. I'm way less stressed, and I can keep self-directed investing on a similar scale, but the size is more
reasonable, the gains are real, and the mechanics are way, way simpler.

I'm only up about 1% right now, but I was trading while learning and made some beginner's mistakes. I've gained way more of my peace of mind,
though, and that right now is worth more than money. Thanks again for all your help, you accessibility, and your crazy-awesome cast. Shout out to Brittany and Dr. Jim!


One of a kind!

Tom, thanks to you and the gang for coming out to CLT...what other company goes out live for free to thank (and educate) their customers?!



Kudos to the boys on the research team

Research Staff,

What an extraordinary amount of information you have provided to us in this one document! You are to be commended; and I am most appreciative of the work you have done.

My very best to you all,


Fan for Life!

I'm an elderly, retired, novice and took a class purchased at money show in October, about vertical spreads. Great class, but as you can guess, I had so much more to learn. Lost my butt in February, so I started watching you live and lots of videos. The first thing that "clicked" for me was "trade small, trade often", my biggest mistake--traded way too big. I know I still have a lot to learn, but OMG, you all have taught me so much!! Yesterday I was toying with the "wider strikes vs more contracts" and this morning you answered my question on air!! I LOVE you all! Yesterday I also looked at Brittany's iron fly in EEM, and now I've broadened my interest even more. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm a fan forever. I live in Las Vegas, so can't wait to see you at the Money Show!


YOU are fabulous!

Hi Tom:-)

YOU are fabulous! But of course you already know that...:-) Thank you for who you are, and how you do what you do... We are ALL learning.

Perhaps one day, other businesses will learn from you on how to grow a business and teach their followers in such a grand but humble manner.


All the best,

Susan S.

Thanks to the GEEKS!

Ladies & Gentlemen,
Wanted to express my deep appreciation to Tom, Mike R., T.P.,Jacob P., Pet M., Dr. Jim, and your two support people who's names I did not get for a fabulous informative program on Saturday!
We were entertained, informed, and enjoyed every minute. Congrats to all for a 1st class program and delivery head and shoulders above any of your competitors. Thank you again for all your hard work and sacrifice on a holiday weekend to put on this program for us.

Great addition to the Cherry Picks Email

Mike - just wanted to let you know that I really like the latest
enhancement to the chart showing the movement of implied volatility over
the past 3 months in the current Cherry Picks. Adding the trajectory of
the move provides a great perspective on IV/IVR and also a useful context.

Thanks for continuing to improve the newsletter.


Little Nuggets of Wisdom!

"Generally in higher implied volatility moments, like we are now, there is plenty of opportunity in the ETFs......"

Kudos for Cherry Picks......I read every word, every week.....and find little gems like the statement above, which confirms my approach.

Page one and page three my favorites.

Nice job!


Trade Managers

Please pass on my thanks to Nick and Mike for their segment which I think is really 'on the button' for intermediate traders. The practical application of the tastytrade model is really enlightening.



I was looking for you!

Hey there, Tastytrade,

I'm sure you guys get ten thousand emails from crazies just like me, but I just wanted to drop a note and thank you for all the amazing content.

I'm finishing up Options 101 and will move on to options 201, then we'll see what happens. I've been trying desperately to find a way to trade professionally for about 6 years now. I'm hopeful that I've found it, and I guess you'll know it when it happens since I'm on Tastyworks as well. Y'all have a good weekend.

Best regards,
