What Is Different About Your Options Course?
One thing that makes us stand far above the rest is our trading methods. While most courses teach strategies with a 90% probability of profit, the losses of their losers outweigh their winners 10:1. Have you ever heard of the credit spread trader who made money for 2 years straight and then lost it all back in 30 days? At SJ Options you’ll find the same probabilities, but the risk to reward is also in our favor. Typically, our winners make double on average of our losers. The odds stack up much better with our trading methods. In addition, we back test our strategies up to 80,000 times back office while others teach strategies that have barely been tested at all in comparison. It would take you 9 years working 8 hours per day to do as much testing as we have done for you.
But Tasty Trade Is Free
We hear this a lot unfortunately. Yes, you can learn many things about options by watching a financial show, but you’ll find the education is very general, and they do not teach any specially effective strategy from beginning to end. Remember, that show was created as a marketing plan to bring in more customers to their brokerage. So, after they reel you in, they can up-sell you to Investools and profit from your trading commissions. If you are looking for basic options education that will take you on an clever advertising campaign for many years, then by all means, follow the herds. However, if you want to learn a concrete trading strategy that has been fully back tested, forward tested and has specific trading rules so you can start right away, then join our program. We offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee for a reason.
Do You Offer a Guarantee?

Do You Have Student References?
In the past we used to invite our potential clients to speak with our current students, but now that we’ve grown and gained popularity, we don’t bother our students with that task any further. We do, however, have a testimonial page which is 100% real, coming straight from our emails. Please take a moment and read what real people just like you have written to us about our course. We also have done interviews with some of our students which you can hear. To see our testimonials, please click here.
Do You Offer a Payment Plan?
Our course is designed to be affordable for the serious and sophisticated option trader who is ready to take advantage of what we have to offer. We do not have a payment plan since our product is digital and delivered in its entirety once payment is received.
The Famous Question… How Much Will I Make?
While most options courses will make you empty promises to get your business, we won’t. Instead, we will tell you how it is. If you want to have long-term success with option trading, then you must remove as much risk as possible from your portfolio. People are attracted to high-risk trades in hopes of making fast returns, but there is so much embedded risk in these trades, that any success experienced will always be short lived. Nearly all of the well-known option strategies are designed such that one bad trade will wipe out your entire account. After years of trading the industry standard strategies, we found it’s nearly impossible to sustain profits using them long-term.

Our Revolver is very different. With our innovative technique you’ll have a much better chance of removing the risk from each of your trades as time progresses. We have developed a system to lock in profits as you go, and it’s unlike any of the standard trades out there. Over the years our Case Studies have done very well for our students. They have ranged from 30% all the way up to 80% in a year.

Please note: We can never guarantee returns since the market is dynamic, but we do our best to remove as much risk as possible from our trades and then lock in what profits we can.

Do You Offer Group Discounts?
Yes, we offer group discounts. Please call for details.
I'm Married, Does My Spouse Have To Pay?
We do not charge extra for more than one person studying our course from the same home address. We do not however allow simultaneous logins from multiple IP addresses.
I'm a Novice. Can I Take Your Options Course?
Our course is rather advanced to be honest, but we do cover the basics. If you are just getting familiar with options, then you’ll probably want to read up on them first. We don’t publish materials that are free to read online or in books. We have had novices enter our course and begin to trade within a few months of time. If you work hard, then you can learn the options language too, but it will be a little difficult at first.
Mac or PC?
We recommend that you have a PC or MAC with 2 monitors. You will also need a head set / microphone to participate in class effectively. Our recorded videos are in Flash, so for iPad and iPhones, they will not work unless Apple offers a plugin for Flash. Some students use a flash compatible browser to watch our videos on iPads/iPhones. We do not give refunds for compatibility issues. Please see our Terms of Use.
How Long Will It Take Me To Learn This?
Those of you that have already been trading options for years, can come into our course and grasp the Revolver instantly and begin trading it in just days. Those of you who are new to options will have to first become comfortable with what options are, and after that you can move on to paper trading our strategies. It can take a few months to understand options because they appear very foreign at the beginning, but in our course you will learn extremely fast through our Apprenticeship Learning Process.
What Are Paper Case Studies?
We are one of the few courses in the world that mentors our clients using a Paper Case Study teaching approach. We begin our trades and manage them with our software, SJ Troo, live in class. We’ve already had 7 Successful Years of managing paper trades with our students. Those who have followed our trades have done very well in our course.
Do You Give Live Seminars?
Yes, we offer live seminars. Please see the website for dates and locations.
Are Your Strategies Scalable?
Scalability is one of the strongest selling points of our strategies. While the industry standard strategies are far from scalable, our strategies are just that. Just be careful not to over invest. We’ll explain more about this in the course.
What Discounts Do Members Get On Seminars?
We may offer special pricing to our members for live seminars. As a member you will be notified about the promotions we are offering.
Can I Combine Promotional Offers?
Promotional offers may not be combined. From time to time, we offer special promotions and discounts. Some of our advertisements may overlap by date, but we do not combine special offers. Each promotion is unique and may not be combined with another.
