I have interacted with Ron on several message boards and one-on-one. I have also attended his webinars on options trading. He is one of the rare traders that knows what they are doing and are constantly working on improving. He genuinely cares about his students and is willing to go the extra mile to ensure their success. He breaks complex concepts down to easy, digestible and actionable steps.
I’ve received many valuable trading insights from Ron Bertino. His understanding of successful trading strategies and disciplines is both deep and broad at the same time. Options trading is a unique investment sector and requires quantitative as well as conceptual understanding to become consistently profitable. Ron is able to describe complex and interrelated ideas in a clear and simple manner.
He also digs deeply into the concepts to get a handle on the correlations between price, Greeks and trade structures. I highly recommend your attention to his trading thought processes and market wisdom.
Ron and his Space Trip Trade (STT) have made a significant impact on the level of safety I feel trading monthly income strategies. I routinely trade at the money structures and have found myself frequently tested by adverse market moves over the past year. I have traded five live expiration cycles of STT positions to date and can say with confidence that the peace of mind combined with the positive expectancy make this a trade than I plan to use as the core of my options portfolio well into the future. The development of the STT is a significant accomplishment and one that I believe marks just the beginning of Ron’s contribution to both options theory and practice. Well done!
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.
Ron is probably one of the best traders and teachers I have met who takes complex ideas and turns them into simple explanations…this is very hard to do.
I was fortunate enough to not fall into the traps that a lot of newbies fall for, in part due to Ron’s videos and group chat discussions. His trade setups such as STTs are very creative and his explanations are very clear. Ron’s weighted vega presentation was certainly was very educational and it cleared (via historical trades) a lot of the common misconceptions. He also mentioned a kite adjustment which saved me some pain. I would highly recommend Ron as a mentor as there’s a wealth of knowledge to extract from him.
