#1 Options Trading Education

Eric Hale


Eric Hale has been actively trading since he was ten years old. As a child, he used to check the newspaper every day to see quotes of his favorite companies and that curiosity developed into a passion for trading. He approaches trading from the mindset of an engineer – he considers the data, analyzes all the risks, determines the reward, creates a plan, and then trades with confidence.

Eric discovered trading options in 2004. He read lots of books and even tried a popular training program before joining OptionsANIMAL. In late 2005, Eric enrolled as a student of Greg Jensen’s options trading education. After mastering the OptionsANIMAL method, he discovered what he needed to become a successful investor. Today, he uses that knowledge to trade successfully and to teach other investors to be successful as well. Eric has shown hundreds of students the secrets of becoming a successful trader and is passionate about helping students develop the understanding and confidence needed to be consistent and profitable. Eric currently resides in Naperville, IL with his wife Diane and his three children.
