I am a new option investor and this podcast really helped me out I have listened to all of them! Options still aren't real clear to me! But with more examples I hope options will become more second nature to me. When I first started out I didn't even know what options are but now I can make some simple trades. Thank you for the free advise.

Offers a wealth of free information on options strategies. Helpful for even the experienced.

Seems like the website has a good setup for current and beginning options traders. I've traded basic options for over 4 years and I think this site could help me get to the next level and maybe improve my current trading. Lots of visual and audio materials.
