John

EdJohn’s trading career started over 10 years ago. At that time, John was a fairly good looking college athlete. In the off season, John took care of swimming pools. There was one customer who really impressed John. With a beautiful home (obviously with a pool), the customer seemed to be home all the time, spent lots of time with his kids, and appeared in all other aspects to live the life John most desired. One day John asked the man, “What do you do for a living?” The man replied, “I trade options from home.” John was hooked. John became an option trader.

Since then, John has worked for a variety of brokerages in many capacities around options trading and trading in general. John finished his education, got an advanced degree, and continues to trade and teach about options. John has traded extensively, and he has worked with clients and students extensively.

John’s main interest and specialty is volatility and volatility trading. John believes the only way to profit long term from options trading is to buy volatility less than realized volatility and sell volatility more than realized volatility. Sad as some (his spouse) might believe, however, this is John’s primary passion. John spends most of his free time reading academic papers about options and volatility, modeling volatility with his below-average programming skills, trading volatility, and dreaming of different ways to trade volatility.

John also loves to spend time with his wife and three daughters in their hometown of Boise, Idaho—America’s most livable city.

Testimonials and reviews are individual experiences and personal opinions of those who have purchased education and training. Individual results will vary, and testimonials and/or reviews may not be typical. Results rely on individual effort, time, and skill of each customer, as well as market conditions and other factors. The Company is unable to track whether a customer applies the training or how much money a customer earns. However, it is assumed that most customers do not apply the needed effort and time, or do not acquire the skills, to complete transactions successfully and, therefore, most clients do not make money. You may be asked to complete a satisfaction survey.
