Specifically, I am looking into her knowledge on Options trading, as that is the topic I would like to invite her to discuss on futures.io (formerly BMT).

Thx guys,

Carley Garner has her own monthly column in the TASC magazine, which is called "Futures for you". I am reading this regularly. It is some basic stuff and explanations of a variety of subjects. I think she has a broad knowledge on FOREX, futures and options.

She further has co-authored a book on commodity options.

Commodity Options: Trading and Hedging Volatility in the World’s Most Lucrative Market: Carley Garner,Paul Brittain: 9780137142866: Amazon.com: Books

I have not read the book, so I cannot comment on it.

@Fat Tails,

Funny, I have been reading TASC for 30 years now, I read Tom Gentile's (Optioetics) Explore Your Options page but never noticed Carley's name under her picture, my bad. She mostly writes on Futures than on Options.

Yes, there are three of them Carley Garner, Tom Gentile and Don Bright with his "Questions and Answers". It is a clever idea to take care of those columns, as it certainly gets them a reputation and some customers.

My favourite regular contributor is Howard L. Simons, but he writes for the "Active Trader", not for TASC.

Yes, Carley is a recent addition and Don Bright goes for a longer time. I met him in Vegas a couple of times promoting his money management services during Expos. I have seen a bunch of authors there to go on with a related business venture.

My favorite of TASC contributors is Dr. Giorgos Siligardos with a few actually useful and interesting articles. There is so much to technical analyses after so many years reading TASC and coding their indicators and system that these days I just peek through for something that catches my eyes. That is how I missed on Carley.

I read her book as a beginner and thought she did a fantastic job of explaining futures options strategies. I think having her for a webinar would be great, especially for people who don't know much about that area.

I read her book, and I thought it was good, not great if you have traded options before.

You can see a lot of experience in actual trading and I think it would be a good choice for a seminar.

Saw a video interview of her a couple of months/years ago. She seems pretty knowledgeable.

I have been trading with DeCarley for a few months. A few problems with trades (short options) being rejected but excellent customer service to fix problems. Best customer service I have seen in 15 years trading at many firms.

Commissions are not the cheapest but not expensive. I would call them just right.

Margins are SPAN minimum.

My experiences mirror Ron's except I haven't had any issues with trades being rejected. GREAT customer service. I have no issues recommending them as futures & options broker. They do not do equities.

Carley ( @decarleytrading ) is great. I have had an account there for 2-3 months. Service is excellent when there are issues (there have been a few minor order issues with Gain and the Zaner 360 platform). Carley seems to answer e-mails day and night.

They also can provide a lot of analysis, etc. I don't use them for that, though. It may be valuable stuff I am missing.

Of course, for the extra service, you pay a bit more in commissions, compared to someone like OptionsExpress. But, since DeCarley uses SPAN minimum (and OptionsExpress requires more for some instruments), I can have a contract or two more with DeCarley, and this more than makes up for the commission difference.

Overall, highly recommend. High satisfied.

Kevin

Here is an example of Carley's customer service.

I emailed her a question on Friday at 9pm. It wasn't a question that needed answered right away. I expected to get an answer on Monday morning.

She answered my question within 10 minutes!

You won't get that good customer service anywhere else.

Just recently joined DeCarley and I have to say that service is indeed excellent. As an example I emailed her a question about S&P options and got reply within 5 minutes. If you are looking at option futures selling broker and would not mind some help along the way, I would strongly recommend giving her a call.

I have a question about DeCarely Trading's platforms. Do you know if it is possible to trade with this broker using a Web only interface? Or is there a program/platform available that is compatible with Linux?

I don't use a Windows computer so I would have to either use a Web-based platform, such as E*Trade or OptionsXpress. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the inquiry. DeCarley Trading offers multiple platforms and solutions for traders of all types. As you've probably discovered, once you narrow the selection of available platforms by whether or not they are web based, the selections go down dramatically.

Nonetheless, we have a handful of platforms that we can offer to you that should fit your needs, but it would really depend on the type of trader you are. For instance, some web platforms don't offer option trading, etc. Others involve higher fees, so aren't appropriate for high volume traders. Some of the clearing firms backing the platforms aren't necessarily short option friendly...so there are a lot of factors involved that might not seem obvious. Our job is to find the best fit for you, (we clear through 8 different firms so we can typically find a proper arrangement for any account type).

Please send me an email to cgarner@decarleytrading.com with your specific scenario (ie. approximate account size, strategy (options vs futures, position vs. day trading) service level full-service vs. self directed), etc. and I can give you a few ideas of what might be the best solution for you.

*There is substantial risk of loss in trading futures and options.

If you have any questions about the products or services provided by DeCarleyTrading, please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread.

I had the pleasure this morning of having a long breakfast with Carley Garner of DeCarley Trading, as she visited my hometown of Cleveland for the weekend.

She is a great person, and a pretty awesome broker too. By far, the BEST customer service I have ever seen in a broker.

I highly recommend her and DeCarley Trading!

wow thanks @Big Mike @kevinkdog @Fat Tails for yr comments and others comments. I am pleasantly surprised to find more info on Options..... I knew i needed it in 6-8months but had no starting point

If daytrading am a strict ES trader......but its time to broaden my equity trades(day/swings) and supplement with Options especially in 401k/IRA. Target for 1st Options trade is within next 6months as I have very minimal Options knowledge but i know for sure that I only want to play Long Calls and Long Puts

was looking for Options know how and how to get more info and be ready to handle the Long Call/Put & especially if wanting to get this done by way of 401k/ira accts as they seem to have some restrictions...saw the upcoming webinar when I searched the name Carly on the fourm. See Carley has done few prezos before too.

Perfect intro to get more ingrained into Options & the peripheral knowledge...will check the webinars out....

Many thanks Carley for the prezos.
