Happy Holidays & Thank You...

Dear Tom, Tony and the Entire tastytrade Family:

I wish the best that the Holidays have to offer from my family to yours. I
have been listening to tasty trade since December 18, 2012. I am 51 years
old and have had several businesses over the past 30 years. I have been
trading options since October 18, 2010. I have learned more about the
wonderful world of trading in these past 11 months since I started
following you guys than all my years in business combined.

You guys are absolutely amazing. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Hanukah
with Family and Friends and Looking forward to learning much more with you
guys for years to come.

I have registered for Dough and waiting for my turn to play with it.

Keep up the great work. Highly appreciate all you do. I am getting my 14
and 17 year old sons involved in watching WDIS and Back to Cool archives.
They are both excited and spend whatever free time they have from school on
weekends putting on trades in their virtual accounts. Their first goal is
to fund their college education using income from trading options. I cannot
Thank You enough.

Peace.

Best Practices...

Hello
I’m a relative newbie, (about 1 month) and Love the show.

Congratulations on producing the “Best Practices” session on
Monday, 11-25. It is a fantastic wrap up of the great stuff you are doing. A special
thank you for including the references to prior shows for further study. That
is of immense benefit to new folks like me.

Peace,

Sosnoff Says

Case, I listened to you and your dad’s segments from last week and they were so Perfect ~ I have about 40-50 different options running at one time and have been searching for when to roll when not to etc... and as I listen to your segments the timing was ever so perfect this was the sunset with a rainbow that I saw while walking and listening.... the world has a way of giving you the teachers when you need it... So I Am So thankful.... PS. My 8 yrs. old just started his trading account... and one day I think he too will excel, I only got started 2 yrs. ago and have made many costly mistakes... but I feel finally that I have a better;best guide now!!!!! Thanks again to everyone!

A Selfless Act...

Tom and Tony,

I've written you many times and you always respond. Thank you!

You said Karen the super trader was a better person than you during your interview in the past. I would argue that you and tastytrade are influencing and helping hundreds of thousands of people. You say the tastytrade viewership is almost 50K, but those 50,000 people are helping family members and friends with their finances.

tastytrade is one of the most selfless endeavors I've seen. It's amazing how you are challenging the whole financial industry to be better and this will influence generations to come.

I'm embarrassed to say it but I've invested tens of thousands into financial education and only tastytrade has made me a better investor.

Sorry if this was a little long but it's the time of year to express what you are thankful for and tastytrade is at the top of my list.

Forever grateful,
Peace.

Last Call Today...

Tony and Steve,

I really liked the “Last Call” segment today! It is great to hear the discussion between opposing views. I liked when TP was a guest on Steve’s show as well. You and Tom should consider guest appearances on his show to discuss trade positions.

tastytrade is GREAT keep up the good work!

Peace,

Earnings...

Tom/Bat!

Thanks for turning me to look to earnings plays. They are perfect for a guy who has a full-time job, 3 young children and little time for much else.

My earnings portfolio of strangles, iron condors and covered stock is up 32% since the start of Q4 earnings season (October 10th) with a win rate of 79%!

Thanks for all you do for the tastytrade community!

Peace.

Great Dynamic on BTC...

Hi Bat, Katie,

Long time viewer, just started watching BTC last few days.
WOW! Bat you are a great teacher.
Katie is an excellent student, I like her questions, she wants to learn, is smart, she is thinking about trading off the show.
You are covering relevant material in a practical, logical, complete manner.
Like the trade logic, using analyze,
tab (us mortals can't visualize trades w/o a picture). Setting alerts important. Adjusting the CC ON XOP was also valuable to me.

Thanks to you and Katie. Your are great team, good dynamics on the show.

Cheers,
Chris/California

SLM's Psychology...

Hi SLM,

Excellent piece on trading psy today on 13 things mentally strong people do not do. I am not sure what is the percentage of great traders out there in this world population but it seems to me that a great trader would at the least acquire emotional EQ and the disciple which is very hard to come by. Masses just entrust their money to their 401k or annuity advisors and hoping to profit on the path of least resistance. Little do they know that in order for the client to make 1% on their CDs, the bank take and leverage theor money 36 times and sell puts on it for conservative 3% gain. They are ecstatic when their accounts is up but throw a fit when the market takes it all back behind the facade of "crisis". Thank you for advocating financial independence.

Thank you,
Dan
