Where do we go from here? (or “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”…)

By Jeff McAllister / May 19, 2010

Wow. What a turbulent ride. With all three of the major US markets near their 200 day SMA, you’ve got to be a bit nervous. It seems that the majority of investors are remembering September of 2008 and the near financial melt down brought about by numerous factors. Trouble is, […]

Excellent
5.0
Options Animal has been great to work with. There are many trainers to work with who have different styles of teaching and trading. I have found several that I like and learn from. The training they gave me has benefitted me so much that the gains I have made in my trading account has more than paid for my subscription to the lessons. Love this company and their trainers!
I am really happy I decided to subscribe to OptionsAnimal. Trading options is not easy, but OptionsAnimal provides you with all the information you need to trade options successfully. They cover all the different option trades, and, in the higher level lectures, they have algorithms which guide you through the management of trades after they are placed. I highly recommend OptionsAnimal.
