Ron, I want to say thank-you for the terrific innovation of the STT and variants. I've now spent some time with the Jan version in the simulator, and it's just an amazing way to leverage portfolio margin, creating a trade that only uses $375 margin to get say, a $409 expiration profit and still have a hedge down at SPX 2000. Really extraordinary.
Ron, just want to say a great big thank you for the Space Trip Trade hedges for my 19 Aug SPX and RUT Road Trip Trades placed a couple of weeks ago. They're doing nicely, thanks to you, whereas without them they'd be toast.
[update] Just an update on my 19 Aug RUT STT-hedged RTT. Up nearly 12% on Reg T, would have been a 8% loser if closed last week without the STT hedge. I plan to close it out next week. Thanks again, and again, and again...
On a personal note, I have followed or subscribed to close to a dozen trading sites over 6 years, and your research has the best quantification for complex strategies, enabling safe extrapolations to predict behavior of OTM trades. Being a retired chemical researcher, your research style is near and dear to my heart.
Having studied under many trade mentors, I can thoroughly recommend Ron as someone who is consistent, knowledgable, insightful, and helpful.
His trade examples are live, so the individual trader can place the exact same trade and follow along....no cherry picked trade examples that always seem to work out...everything is live.
Ron is a patient mentor...no question is too elementary, and he is always willing to show errors in the traders thinking and suggest better methodologies when a question is submitted to him.
Ron is extremely knowledgeable in how options behave and in translating that "know how" in creating very unique and profitable trades. In my opinion, one of his best traits is how he clearly communicates the setup and management of his trades and more importantly the reasoning behind why they work.
I paid for the full training package at Investools and Online Training Academy. I am quite active in multiple trading groups and the traders I most look up to also look up to Ron. Ron understands options, the Greeks and back testing better than any other advisor or trainer I am aware of. He understands the relationships better than the tool models in TOS, OptionVue, or ONE. He can tell you the model shortcomings and which model to use for which purpose. He is a master back tester and gains his insight from trading, testing and not guessing. He has developed multiple trades that are far and away the best for their purposes.
I've learned more about Butterfly spreads, Condor Hedge trades and the practical application of technical analysis from Ron than any other coach I've worked with. Ron's know-how is unparalleled and he's the most well read trader I've come across. You won't regret working with Ron.
