Accredited Investing Education

Here Are Several Common Inquiries:

As you research whether or not OptionsANIMAL’s course is the right investment for you, we’ve found it helpful to share with you some of the common questions we get asked prior to joining our course.

Are options risky?

There is risk associated with any trading instrument.  However, buying options is essentially insurance.  Would you consider your car, homeowner, or life insurance to be risky?  You run the risk of losing your premiums if you don’t make a claim.  But, in exchange for those premiums, you get the comfort of having protection life’s most important assets. 

Buying options allows you to protect the assets in your portfolio – which is another one of your important assets. 

Options traders have the ability to buy and sell options.  In the case of selling options, you would be the one providing the insurance – the insurance company.  In exchange for providing protection, you collect a premium.  But it’s important to realize that the buyer’s protection is the sellers risk.  Without having some other risk mitigating instrument, i.e., long options or shares of the equity, a trader could be exposed to significant risks. 

That is why we teach people the important fundamentals of spread trading – both buying and selling options and stock.  This allows traders to take on exactly the risk profile that is comfortable for them.  Almost always, the risk associated with spread trading is far less than trading a stock alone. 

Using a combination of these spread trades, our members understand how to generate income, achieve capital appreciation, and protect their portfolios in any market direction.

If I understand options and use them regularly, what do you have to offer me?

Collectively, our staff has over a hundred years of experience trading options.  Seven days a week, they share their insights, experience, and coaching with our members – things that cannot be read in a book and only come from practical hands-on trading. 

We teach all of the basic and advanced options strategies.  However, our unique approach to trading allows members to fix losing trades.  Our success ratio of profitable trades exceeds 90% since we began tracking our performance six years ago. 

We are only able to achieve this sort of performance by using our proprietary adjustment technology.  By following our straight-forward six-step trading plan, members structure trades that can be fixed when the market turns against them. 

Members also benefit from the most vibrant and active options community in the world.  Live online classes and coaching sessions allow members to interact with our staff every day.  Our Mid-Week and Weekly shows give members unique insight and ideas to trade the current market.  All of these are available as archives if you miss the live sessions. 

We share real money trades with our members so they can see exactly how we are trading the current market. 

We also have an online community forum where members engage with our entire community – asking questions, getting feedback, sharing ideas, and improving their knowledge. 

OptionsANIMAL is also proud to offer live in-person summits throughout the year.  These seminars are the industry benchmark in providing effective learning and real-time actionable trading ideas.  These seminars are valued at over $2,500 each and are provided at no additional cost to our members.

How do I control my emotions when I trade?

The emotions of fear and greed are primal and cause traders to make bad decisions.  The OptionANIMAL trade adjustment technology allows our member to consider the possible outcomes and plan for all contingencies.  Imagine your confidence when you understand that you can manage your trade to profit, even if it doesn’t follow the expected path.  This confidence allows OptionsANIMAL Traders to eliminate those primal emotions and trade rationally.  It gives our you the peace and comfort to be able to sleep at night, knowing that you can be successful in any trend.
