Important Note: I am a serious instructor and a profitable options trader, as you can check by my performance at  myoptionsedge. com. Udemy is full of instructors! But, unfortunately, most are only instructors and not real traders who transparently share their trading results like I do!
You should enroll in this course if you:
1. … bought an Udemy stock options course, but you feel it is theoretical or does not teach you a proper and proven strategy
2. … have basic options knowledge and need a proper strategy to apply it in the market
3. … lack consistency trading stocks, forex or even stock options (derivatives)
4. … are not profitable scalping stocks (or using stock swing trading approach)
5. … use technical analysis that is not producing positive results
6. … use trading indicators and they deliver non-profitable signals
7. … shorted volatility and it produced huge drawdowns in a Volatility spike
8. … are willing to start trading with a proper trading plan (clear entry and exit instructions / pure mechanical)

**** ENROLL NOW and learn an easy, proven, medium risk and profitable trading strategy and join our growing community of profitable volatility traders!  ****

This course will teach you a strategy that combines stock and options to profit from the characteristics (price behavior) of Volatility ETNs, like VXX and UVXY. As you can understand from their price behavior, they lose in the long term and this strategy seeks to profit from their price erosion due to contango and roll yield. I trade exclusively volatility-based strategies with stock options (and now using a combination with stock). I quit trading stocks, as well as individual stock options and forex several years ago and now specialized in this asset class – volatility! I also launched a book on this topic at Amazon (The Volatility Trading Plan).

In this course, you will learn a combined stock and options-based trading strategy (entry-level, very easy to implement) that will give you capital appreciation with protection benefiting from stock options! It is a proven stock options strategy, with a market edge, that will boost your portfolio returns! 
This is not a course on stock options trading! It uses a volatility ETN, VXX or UVXY, which has much more price predictability than any other stock or forex markets! And I will show and prove to you how!

This course starts with the volatility analysis fundamentals (VIX Futures Curve analysis and concepts) and then moves to the development of this combined stock options trading strategy, including its rationale. Additionally, I will provide an updated version (higher risk strategy) of it that will benefit from sudden increases in volatility. Both strategies have clear entry and exit rules that can be applied on mechanical trading.

After this course, you will have access to a very consistent and highly profitable stock and options combined strategy!

This options course describes a full investment methodology with a detailed explanation of its rationale and expected outcome. It includes details on some backtests developed to support its robustness and consistency as well as alternative tests presented to support the chosen criteria. 

This options trading methodology should be a very good add-on to increase the return of your Stock or ETF portfolio! If you are trying to scalp stocks or using stock options on your trading and not achieving results, move to this asset class – Volatility! Also, you do not need to have any knowledge of technical analysis or even indicators. Just follow the clear strategy instructions given market outputs.
Options are derivatives and could be stock options that have stock as their base asset. In this case, we trade a derivative, which is volatility! We are trading derivatives of a derivative!
Only basic options knowledge is needed as well as a brokerage account (either live or practice account if you want to test it first)!
