  • Daily Options Strategy Consulting- 1 Full Week Of Training/Trading In San Diego, CA

    I've been asked via e-mail and by phone if I am still offering the week long training (Monday- Friday) on my daily options trading strategy. While I do take a couple of weeks off here and there, I am still offering it. My next availability will be mid-June 2012. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail and I will go into further detail. Also, after the training is complete, I still personally interact daily with my Google chat forum for free on a daily basis regarding the daily trades, where questions can be asked on potential trades and my take on them. Currently, there is a group of about 14 people who help each other out. It works out great.

    Thanks again.

    Disclosure: I am long AAPL.
