Hi I’m Josh, and I’m a finance guy who love’s to trade options.

I cut my teeth on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, so I saw firsthand how the “sausage was made” – and it usually wasn’t pretty.

As former insider, I saw the inner workings of how these firms and fund managers rob customers right in front of their eyes every month.

I quickly realized that professionals only care about getting their fee's first while 95% of them underperform the overall market every year.

In fact, there’s been more fee’s paid out to these “wealth stealers” then overall returns since 2002.

After playing by their rules and busting my ass for many years trying to climb the ladder, it started to not sit right with me.

I had enough when I continued to be restricted on trying to do the right things for my clients to help them achieve better returns and having senior brokers dip their greedy paws into my checks, leaving me with barley anything to live on telling me… kid you gotta pay your dues.

So I left that world behind with a vengeance to beat them at their own game and teach everyday hard working people who trusted these “wealth stealers” the know how and confidence how to manage their own money and to quickly generate returns to get them back on track.

I’ve shared my message and strategies with over 129,000 people like you, and everyday investors have suddenly started making money in the market for the first time on their own.

    The (Ugly) Truth About Your 401(k)

    The (Ugly) Truth About Your 401(k)

    It fails many Americans!

    So says the father of the modern day 401(k).

    Do you mind if I share some of my insider
    viewpoints why this is?

    Great!

    The 401(k) passed into law under the Revenue Act
    of 1978.

    The... Revenue Act?

    Hmm... What's more unusual is that IRS was in
    charge of the 401(k), which is the same government
    body in charge of getting as much money from you.

    That's a little conflicting, right?

    Before the 401(k), companies offered pension plans
    to employees.

    Companies started to realize the amount of risk
    that these pensions had put on the company.

    The way the could transfer the risk and
    responsibility from company to employee was
    through a 401(k).

    One of the common rebuttals is that it's
    tax-deferred.

    True... But here's the fine print.

    Federal Income Tax is deferred, but Social
    Security and Medicare are taxed 7.6% a year.

    The 401(k) tax benefit was to help executives on
    their yearly bonuses, not the middle-class worker.

    That is why I make the case that most people are
    not in a position to benefit from the tax benefit.

    Usually, in life, you end up paying more for
    something later; than you would if you paid now.

    But, if my employer matches my contribution, it's
    free money.

    That's your decision to make, but I don't think
    it's worth it.

    After the introduction of the 401(k), this opened
    the door to bankers getting their hands on your
    money causing most to turn a blind eye over the
    years saying, let a professional do it.

    99% of 401(k) plans provide limited options which
    all happen to be mutual funds that have management
    and hidden fees.

    After fees, the average return drops down to
    2%-4%.

    Then factor in a conservative number of 3% for
    inflation, poof!

    You take all the market risk while the funds
    collect their fees and you can't touch it.

    From what I've researched, the average 401(k)
    balance is around $96,000.

    Let's pretend you retired today with $250,000 in
    your 401(k).

    Let's say the annual interest rate earned on that
    nest egg is 2% with inflation at 3% (annually).

    If took $15,000 a year from that account to live
    off, it would last 25 years, that's it.

    That is a real problem most Americans face today
    because that's not enough to survive.

    I saw this first hand with my Great Grandma (Nan).

    Before she passed at 87 years old, she was
    battling cancer, buried in debt and still
    searching for a job.

    That is the mission OptionSIZZLE was founded on,
    which is to help people like you take back control
    of your money and become independent money making
    machines.

    To your wealth, freedom, and options!

    Your Investing Approach Disgusts Me

    Your Investing Approach Disgusts Me

    You’re a scam!

    That’s the reply I received back from a
    self-proclaimed “not your average financial
    expert.”

    I had reached out to ask if he was open to
    having me on his weekday investing radio show.

    He copied and pasted the whole sales page for our
    Weekly Options Income Course, saying he didn’t
    understand why I would need more exposure since I
    can generate a 6% return every week.

    It’s an approach by creating high probability
    outcomes using the S&P 500 options with defined
    spreads.

    I can see why it may turn off someone at first if
    they just read the headline, but he’s insisting
    that we’re saying it’s guaranteed.

    So I replied: “Don’t you talk to your audience
    about how to use options to enhance returns,
    reduce risk and increase the probability of
    success?”

    Keep in mind this guy has a weekday radio show
    telling people how to manage their money and he
    manages money for others.

    Here’s his full reply:

    “I don’t.

    I certainly don’t suggest people use options
    unless they are wealthy.

    Options can be a nice strategy to protect wealth
    via hedges. Sadly, options are typically sold to
    non-wealthy people as a way of getting
    commissions, newsletter or website services
    subscriptions, etc.

    If you were good at options from a practical
    point, you wouldn’t be in the business of selling
    systems to teach laymen how to do it. Even the
    name “optionsizzle” sounds creepy and invites SEC
    and Finra scrutiny.”

    I don’t want to it to be the pot calling the
    kettle black, but I’m sharing this to encourage
    you.

    That’s his opinion, which is uninformed.

    This guy likely talks a good game to clients using
    the same rehashed financial nonsense.

    In fact, this is on his site, “an uncanny ability
    to predict market winners & losers along with an
    eye for financial trends that others seem to miss.”

    Yeah, this guy can predict winners, losers, and
    trends that other firms with millions of dollars
    in research…. missed.

    Okay.

    I what you to see that putting your money with
    a financial professional is gambling.

    They are taught the same thing, gather assets.

    I took a few minutes to see if he was a registered
    financial professional like I once was.

    Guess what?

    He’s not.

    In 2008, I made a choice show a layman how they
    can be in more control of their future and money,
    then nickel and dime them of fees the rest of
    their life.

    To your wealth, freedom & options!

    The Future Of Money Most Aren't Ready To Accept

    The Future Of Money Most Aren't Ready To Accept

    It's the internet of money...

    It's tough to understand how it works at first.

    But... so is how the FED keeps creating helicopter
    money.

    The future is here, and it will be a dancers dream
    come true the day they don't have to lug a hefty
    bag full of singles to the bank teller.

    Only 8 years old… Bitcoin has become a game
    changer for finance.

    You probably remember hearing how Bitcoin traded
    up over 1000 and then collapsed two years ago.

    Since then, more volume (adoption) has stabilized
    Bitcoin prices.

    The CME Group just launched a pair of indexes
    designed to track the cryptocurrency's price.

    It's the starting foundation for a derivatives
    market, which means the chance to start trading
    options on Bitcoin is very near.

    Today is a big deal…

    Because we announce that, OptionSIZZLE will start
    accepting Bitcoin.

    I'm very excited to finally share that with you
    and also keep learning about it.

    I've already seen a lot of fiction around Bitcoin
    similar to trading options.

    Can I ask you...

    What do you know about Bitcoin? (good or bad)

    Do you have any Bitcoin?

    Do you think it makes sense to learn more about
    Bitcoin?

    To your wealth, freedom & options!

    ROI From Toys That Outperformed Most 401k

    ROI From Toys That Outperformed Most 401k

    It's not savvy approach...

    ... If you ask a professional.

    They'll laugh at you and mumble, amateur.

    Success in the financial markets doesn't work any
    different than everyday life.

    We're trading something due to supply and demand
    every day.

    Let's travel back to 1983.

    If you invested $100 into the S&P 500 ahead of one
    of the largest bull markets in our history.

    That $100 would be worth around $3,300 today.

    You went against common wisdom and blew your money
    with buying Star War Action Figures.

    Each one cost around $3, so that would give you
    about 33 action figures.

    Well... those Star Wars action figures trade
    anywhere from $1,000, up to $12,000 for rare ones.

    It paid to challenge conventional wisdom.

    In part 2, I will share the #1 mistake collectible
    and stock owners make.

    It's something I discuss it detail in "Fearless
    Investing With Options."

    Learning how to trade isn't about options...

    ... Or about money.

    It becomes life changing.

    You'll become fearless because you'll start to
    approach life, business, and relationships
    differently.

    The Death Of Indicators Technical Analysis Fundamentals

    The Death Of Indicators Technical Analysis Fundamentals

    In 2008, I went down the rabbit hole.

    I thought I could make money in any market.

    A naive and unrealistic perception.

    I was starting to manage client accounts while
    working on a trading desk.

    And then, I was fired!

    It was time to go full time on my own.

    I tried to be superman, but realized it was only a
    custom.

    I lost money!

    I panicked!

    I became desperate.

    I needed a quick fix, and that's how it started.

    It's like a baseball hitter who's struggling
    mid-season who tries to change their mechanics.

    I didn't stick with what I knew and allowed things
    play out.

    I invested a lot of time and money chasing returns
    following other people's proprietary systems that
    used indicators, candlesticks, charts,
    fundamentals or when Jupiter crossed the 3rd
    Solstice.

    Maybe they do work, just never for me.

    I guess I'm average, but over the years I've
    mastered an approach that has consistency worked,
    and the numbers don't lie.

    If you're like me and haven't been able to find
    success with going down those other roads, you're
    in the right spot.

    Add Black Pepper For Better Returns

    Add Black Pepper For Better Returns

    So while I was walking back with my coffee
    earlier, I was listening to a podcast.

    The guy on the podcast was talking about the
    recent discoveries related to turmeric such as how
    it can help lower cholesterol.

    They continued testing and found adding a little
    black pepper enhanced the body's consumption
    of the turmeric by 1,000 times.

    A little fun fact of the day, but here's how
    it relates to investing, trading and business.

    For many years trading options I would let my
    short options expire.

    Selling options have a higher probability of
    success than buying, but I started to realize that
    coming into the last week gave me trouble at times
    seeing profitable trades turning into losers.

    One reason for that is because of the options
    gamma, which becomes more sensitive to directional
    moves as expiration approaches.

    With only having the experience, I had a hunch
    that managing trades earlier could be more
    beneficial.

    I wasn't sure because it flys in the face of what
    everyone believes in the market with, let your
    winners run.

    I didn't have the research at the time to confirm
    my opinion.

    That was until tasytrade came around and spent
    millions of dollars on researching this.

    Their research concluded that managing winners at
    50% was the optimal level that enhanced returns
    and reduced volatility.

    If you want to generate better returns and reduce
    volatility, add the black pepper by managing
    profits.

    systemized approach to producing a 6% weekly max
    return interests you, check out the Weekly Options
    Trading Income System.
