14 Year Old Makes Thousands Trading Options

“A success story from my daughter as she has been learning from your ideas.

She is currently 14 years old, a freshman of a San Francisco high school. She started to read your free lessons in Aug of this year. Then, by the help of her Hong Kong uncle with $25,000.00 (trading in his account), she started selling SPX and Rut iron condor, purely from ideas of your monthly #1 and #2 trades.

She has been up three month in a row, generating 12.5%, 14.57% and 15.25% with margin requirement of $15,000.00 each month (60% of her $25,000.00). She had a profit of $6,365.
She uses 25% of her profit for her pocket money and 75% for cash reserve to pay back her uncle.

She let all trades expired as OG designed perfect ranges and far enough striking prices of both SPX and RUT within 6 weeks of expiration.

This option letter is really brilliant.”

Paid For Years of Membership In a Couple of Months

"I am new to options trading. I joined this service and a much more expensive service at the same time. In just a couple of months, I’ve learned a great deal from Allen.The other service was a lesson in what not to do.

I might not do exactly the same trades as Allen, but I made enough money in the last couple of months from what I learned from Allen to pay for years of this service."

Very Profitable Experience

“I recently joined the OptionGenius service. I have been trading options on my own for a year or so with limited success. In this crazy, volatile market I knew I needed help. Allen is an options trading expert and his ability to pull from several strategies means that he identifies the option trades with the best profit potential while still limiting risk. His instructions are very easy to follow and he’s very cool about answering questions. It’s been a very profitable experience for me.”

Value and Safety

“I have been a member of Option Genius for approximately one month, and my initial impression is one of value and safety. While no one can predict the market in the short run, Allen has proven to be effective in balancing limited risk with solid short term gains. My experience has been that he is accessible, proactive, and treats your investment dollar as if it were his own.”

Almost Gave Up on Trading

“After trading for 9 years, and basically breaking even, I had almost given up. Then a friend told me about you and I thought it was too good to be true. But my friend was making money so I decided to try you out. Boy, am I glad I did. I don’t do every trade you post, just one a month, but I am already up 30% since I signed up. This is awesome!”

Gaining Confidence

"I am new to options and before coming across your web ad, I was starting to learn an iron condor system. I was slowly making progress in my understanding of options with that system, but with the help of your system, I am learning and gaining confidence much faster. Thanks again."

I Get It.

“I’ve just finished reading your 9 lesson course in one sitting. My uncle trades options on a regular basis and raves about how safe and lucrative they are (the way he trades them), but for the life of me I could never understand his explanation of what he does. I’ve tried wading through books on the subject but have felt frustrated in gathering no more than a rudimentary understanding of how options work. In about 45 minutes with your lessons the light bulb above my head has finally flashed on. I get it. Thank you, thank you, for your simple, straight forward illustrations. You’re writing on a level I can understand. I feel great confidence I can do this with your help. I’ve started a subscription with your service tonight and earlier today have funded an account with one of the “option friendly” brokers you mentioned. Looking forward to a rewarding experience trading options (and finally talking shop with my uncle).”

Wasn’t Sure If It Was A Scam or Not

I’ve looked at your web site for several weeks wondering if it was legit or not.
Tonight, I found myself giving up my credit card number, while shaking my head at myself, saying oh well.

I just went through all your materials, (not all of the books of course) and am quite impressed with what I see.

Thanks for putting it out there for those of us, who are still trying to get it.

Best Regards,
Hugh Yarbrough

Very Impressed

“Hello Allen, I have to tell you I have been very impressed with your service thus far. I have had no problem executing trades at or near the same levels you have advised. More importantly, your candid honesty and persistence, working through difficult trades like the one below have been refreshing.”

Thanks and regards, Don Haines Hopewell NJ

Escape the Rat Race

“Thank you for your great help and guidance… Just one more thing, and I apologize if I’m writing in too much. I didn’t think I could escape my working class life and was going to end up on social security. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I won’t forget to help others.”

$8k Ahead

“Enjoying your recommendations (although, I don’t trade individual stocks only ETF’s/Indexes). Hit a rough patch late last year, but things seem to have turned around….I’m about $8k ahead so far this year. Keep up the great advice!!”

Already Learned More Than the Online Course and Workshop

“I am new to optiongenius and very excited about it. I have been attempting to learn and papertrade for about a year. Very scared of options and don’t want to lose a big chunk of money real fast. (or any at all really) I have been on (name removed) and recently attended a basic options workshop. Helpful, but still many questions and fears. I have a TDAmeritrade account (regular and IRA) and use the ThinkorSwim platform. My goal is extra income to help me and my family and eventually enough income to help others in need. I love the numbers game. Enough to start trying to gain more education and change careers possibly. After looking through your site and bonus material, I have already learned more than the online course and workshop.

Have Made 8-10%

“I agree your site cautions everyone to proceed carefully, paper trade, samll lot sizes and so forth. What else could you offer as very good advise? I believe you do offer a good service and at a very fair price. Contrary to what Mr. XXX says relating to 8-10% not being possible I totally believe and have made many trades with those returns. I just do not do them often enough and with enough capital. I believe sticking to a plan and actually sticking with the same securities is a good method as you get to know how each individual security trades. So keep up the good work Allen.”

Best Site I Have Been Affiliated With

"Your site is the best I have been affiliated with since embarking on the Options trading journey. I became interested in spread trading via a course from (name removed). The videos were very informative, but like every other course, it seemed to pay too little attention to adjusting/managing trades (that was mentioned quite a bit, but not at all explained thoroughly enough). Then, I saw (name removed)’s site, which emphasized weekly options. Again, (name removed) failed to address adjustments and management. Your site really does a great job in the trade set-ups, and you do well at letting us know when to pull the plug. I have done quite well with your advice, and ventured into my own trades as well each month."

Thanks,

P.S. Keep it up!!!!

It's Fun Making Money

It’s fun seeing my account grow each month!

I’m Canadian & my CRA-registered retirement accounts don’t allow option spreads – only covered calls. Covered calls usually return 2-3% per month, & are much more sensitive to price fluctuations than the option spreads you trade.

Following your service is much more productive:
– less effort to pick trades
– at least twice the rate of return per trade than is provided by covered calls (2-3%).

Thanks & keep it up!!

My Heartfelt Thanks

"My fiance found your website on Friday last after searching desperately on the web to learn how to figure out the darn premium BEFORE we press the button on our account which feels more like roulette and totally not us!

Thank you for you sound and sage wisdom and advice! We take comfort having goals as you suggest and learning how to navigate our broker’s site and doing paper trades on thinkorswim first for a while using your outstanding teaching material.

I just thought I would take you up on your request to reach out and introduce myself and give my heartfelt thanks for doing what no one else is and doing it with a caring heart and wisdom.

You are a wonderful teacher and have given us hope when we needed it most and we are forever grateful."
