Tom Sosnoff is the mastermind / developer behind ThinkorSwim - his knowledge of trading is about as high up the food chain as anyone I've ever been around. Had the pleasure of meeting Tom and sitting in on some of his classes. I listened in to a few TastyTrade sessions and I don't like distractions when I'm trading, but... can't give a higher endorsement... if Sosnoff is involved, it's worth looking into. Hope it helps.

Living in Vegas, I have been to several of Tom's presentations and "an evening with Tom and Dave" during various expos. He is Ok , but he has been short bonds now for more than two years, and lost a bunch.

Tastytrade is his new baby after the takeover of TOS by TDAmeritrade put him out of spotlight. Most of the time the show drags on with a lot of irrelevant discussions, small talks, and distractions by his goofy cheerleaders. Then, I simply turn it off. It is directionless, disjointed, and an attempt to make something out of Tom's character. He is a very nice guy that knows options' biz, but no Johnny Carson.

hi,
i have been a member (paying) for awhile and will tell you that there is NO BETTER education on trading option strategies and technical analysis that you can actually use than tom, SLM (steve miller) and my favorite, the LIZ and JNY show..

basically they teach to trade options on probabilities and being a premium seller versus a buyer..the do some buying but always using spreads.. i have used their teaching to buy cheap flies on earnings stocks and have had great success.. bought a call fly on AAPL for 3 cents and sold them at 41 cents bought a put fly on PCLN for 5 cents and sold it for 71 cents..i have learned a great deal in trading spreads with them..for $90 a year...come on..

I'm not a paid subscriber, but have a roku, so I can watch live streaming on that, but only some replays of the day or from past shows after hours as opposed to regular subscribers. Anyway I find it entertaining and more importantly educational. Instead of analyst after analyst then commercials, It's a full 6 or 7 hours of trading probabilities and techniques mostly on stocks and options taught by vetrean cboe traders. Index and fx futures get discussed as well. They do touch a bit on the news such as earnings and typical mkt reports.
They use the TOS platform for their trades, which makes it more helpful for that platform's users.
Instead of commericials there are small (usually comical) skits, inbetween shows or at break.
I don't usually watch the full day though as I'm typically entertaining a toddler when home trading who prefers a different type of programming. LOL
If your the type to have a financial network on all day, I would recommend giving it a try. not sure if there is a free preveiw though.

This thread helped remind me I have a free membership due to having been on TOS for a while. But I hadn't watched it lately. I would say my favorite show on the site/channel is the Liz and Jenny show too. They spend most of the time talking about the option details and sample trades in a good compressed hour. They knock their ideas off each other making sure they both get the details right, plus other suggestions that come up, which I think benefits the viewer. The other shows on the site just go off topic far too much.

Today, they are starting over in their tutorial first half hour starting from the basics of options again. So it's a good intro for newcomers to options if they start catching the show. https://www.tastytrade.com:443/tt/shows/LJ/episodes/130312_LJ

Tastytrade is free to watch now. They no longer require paid subscriptions. One can watch the live streaming show and catch all of their segments including the excellent Liz and Jenny show (12pm EST) on options which they are now also spending more time in teaching the basics of options. And to see archived videos only an email registration is required. Enjoy!

A little update. Just wanted to add that in general Liz and Jenny and sometimes their associate Tom Preston who's also a co-founder of Thinkorswim don't go over or subscribe that much to directional TA of the stocks. Rather they look at volatility, option pricing and ways to optimize option and option spread positions through option strike placement strategies. It's still an excellent education on learning about and how to place option positions but learning about directional analysis of stocks is not what the Liz and Jenny show is about. The show right after "Ask SLM" goes over directional TA. And of course there are other places and resources to learn to have a directional bias.
