Hi, Casey Jensen here, OptionsANIMAL. Perhaps, you are new to the stock market or new to investing altogether, and you have heard people say things like, “I’m going to go short on a position.” You are not sure what they mean. Well, we’ve been in your shoes, everyone starts somewhere. What does it mean to go short? To go short simply means that you are selling because when you hear someone say, “Short they are selling.” They could be selling a stock, a currency, a commodity or they could be selling an option.

I was with Options Animal for 18 months and learned so much useful information that I needed in order to trade options successfully. I am very satisfied with my experience working with them. There is an abundance of resources on their website and I was able to post questions to the coaches and other participants with responses that were quick and answered all my questions. It took a lot of hard work on my part to learn this but their education was top notch. They are a very professional company and I wish I could stay on with them but at the same time, I feel I’ve learned enough to move forward on my own. I highly recommend Options ns Animal to anyone who is truly wanting to learn to trade options
I found this to be an outstanding program - in-depth knowledge you cannot find anywhere else and the staff is always very supportive. I give it an A++.
