The decades long evolution and growth in easily accessible brokerage platforms have created a self-reinforcing cycle of low attention span investors that are also now pulling even the deepest and most steadfast investors down the rabbit hole. Plus, the rise and popularity of meme stock investing certainly has pulled investor attention spans away from traditional analysis and reprogramed us...

Often the terms hedging and diversifying are used interchangeably by traders.

Futures trading is on the rise and continues to grow in popularity. The trouble has been however that for most traders getting started in futures they find it overly complex and hard to manage.

There's a lot of research to support the usage of trend indicators as simple risk reduction elements that can be layered onto an existing strategy. The trouble, however, was that in the past investors had to monitor the trend and execute the appropriate trade reversals when the trend changed. With automation, we can now offload this simple portfolio strategy to bots - and cleverly defin...

Trading short naked puts (i.e. put selling or put writing) can be an effective and profitable options trading strategy. Often the attraction to naked put selling is the ability to collect premium with a margin for error if the stock drops, and have the ability to purchase stock at a discount to the current market price. The trouble comes however when the stock moves lower and challenges the...

It's well documented that not only do investors classically chase performance, ultimately yielding sub-par performance in pursuit but that they also do not have enough patience to stick with strategies long enough. My hope is that it ends today and you can elevate yourself above all this and objectively look at strategies for what their expected outcome range is, not what it's done ...

We're all subject to investment biases, often multiple biases working together at the same time trying subconsciously to derail us. And whether we offload the actual order execution and management to an autotrading platform or not, the human element or side of investing still impacts the decisions we make and the strategies we choose to execute or not. Until we take the time to label an...

One of the most impactful things you can do for your portfolio is add money or capital to it.

Game Changing Content

I stumbled on Option Alpha by chance while searching for an option strategy terminology. It has stopped my dead in my path, which was leading to total loss.

Since discovering option alpha I have recommitted myself to learning options trading over again. It is going to be time consuming, but the alternative is not an option. The content offered on the site and in this blog is overwhelmingly helpful, and free. That is a game changer.

Over the past 15 years, I have spent thousands of dollars on courses and mentorship, they all over-promised. Option Alpha is by far the most comprehensive of any option course I have ever taken. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wishes to learn about option trading.

Perfect for the first time investor

I’m new...wet behind the ears kind of new...to the entire business of trading. I’ve been binging podcasts since early 21 trying to catch up and learn. What I like, is that Kirk never assumes too much and takes his time as a teacher to make sure people are on board with what he is trying to teach. He is patient and detailed and that makes a difference for a new chap like me trying to figure it all out. Thanks, Kirk, and keep up the great work. ~ Kevin
