Welcome to the Education Center of this site.

This part of the site is dedicated to education around options. Here we want to establish a good and stable foundation for your options trading career.

This is not only for options trading beginners. Also intermediate and more experienced options traders can greatly profit from this education. I offer three courses: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

The different courses are based on each other, so try not to skip ahead. If you don’t understand something, it should be explained in one of the earlier articles. If not, just leave a comment or contact me personally.

Free Options Trading Foundation Masterclass:

This is ideal for newcomers to options trading as this is a 1 ½ hour long Masterclass in which I teach all the option basics and even more. Besides all the option basics, I also teach how you can develop a good trading mindset, so in my opinion, this Masterclass is valuable for almost anybody.

In addition to the Masterclass, you will also receive a 35-page long assignment handbook and another free gift.

Other Educational Resources:

In the ‘Posts’ section of TradeOptionsWithMe, you can find plenty of other very useful educational resources. It is a very good idea to not only take my courses but to go through relevant lessons in the ‘Posts’ section as well.

Not all posts are related to only options trading. All posts are categorized and assigned different tags. So if you only want to take the lessons that are related to a specific topic, you can go to the corresponding category or tag page.

  1. What is the difference between call and put options? As far as I know, call options provide the holder the right, but not the obligation, to purchase an asset at a specified price. So my question is… are the put options the opposite? Put options give the holder the right to sell or not an underlying asset at a specified price. Is that correct?

  2. Hi Louis, nice videos… please explain something on adjustments after taking a position, using greeks, suppose there is a violent move…thanks,

    1. Thanks for the feedback. One typical adjustment would be to roll up/down the untested side of a neutral strategy (e.g. strangles, Iron Condors…). But I think it would be best if I wrote a separate in depth article/created a video on this subject instead of trying to explain this with a short reply to your comment.
      So I will try to do that in the near future.
      Hopefully, you understand.

  3. I have been researching and paper trading for several months and been reading options as a strategic investment. My question is are all 3 courses free or just the beginner course and am I allowed to do all 3 of them.

    1. Hi David,
      As of right now, all the courses on TradeOptionsWithMe are completely free of charge.
      Let me know if you ever have any other questions or comments.

    1. Hi Sam,
      Sadly, I don’t know exactly which brokers are available in Canada and which aren’t. As far as I know tastyworks currently isn’t available in Canada. A solid broker that is available is Interactive Brokers and I do believe they accept Canadian customers.

  4. Hi Louis, I m very much enjoying your site and materials. My first couple attempts at providing comments and feedback have not been successful on my computer. I’m trying today on my iPhone to see if that makes a difference. Thank you so much!!
