Disclaimer: I'm not a vendor. I was a subscriber to Steady Options for several years. I'm not currently subscribed because I don't actively trade options at the moment. I'm referring to the core Steady Options service that Kim Klaiman runs, and not the 4 services that have been added since the core debuted (Anchor Trades, Steady PutWrite, Simple Spreads, Steady Futures). Nothing against those 4 - I do have a positive impression of them; but the flagship is the crown jewel IMO.

I think Steady Options (SO) is a legit and worthwhile service for certain options traders. Basically, if you meet *all* of these criteria, I think it will be valuable.
  • Serious about option trading
  • Intermediate or advanced knowledge
  • Dedicate significant time to options trading
  • Value fresh strategy ideas / engagement with other serious options traders

SO has some interesting strategy ideas that evolve over time. For example, when volatility went into the doldrums for years, frustrating popular options strategies, SO adapted and found new ways that worked well in that environment. e.g. when pre-earnings straddles stopped working well, they started using double calendars which did. Many of the ideas start with community discussion, and get fleshed out and integrated into SO's official trades by the founder, Kim Klaiman.

You will learn a TON by reading the forums and engaging with the SO approach. If you're intermediate-level and, let's say, pretty familiar with all of the Tasty Trade stuff, SO would be a good next step. Even if you only subscribe for a few months and immerse yourself in the forums. You'll need to approach it with an open mind. Sosnoff and Klaiman have different, often conflicting, views of how to trade options. If you treat either approach as gospel, you'll lose out on some important ideas. That said, if I had to choose one, I'd go with Klaiman, mostly because his approach evolves and adapts more (IMO).

You can make money with their official trades, but it's not trivial to do so. You have to act fast when trade announcements are made. They do tend to discuss most trades in advanced of placement, so you usually know it's coming, but if you wait for the announcement you'll often get a worse fill then the official one. Klaiman knows how to get excellent fills that are not always easy to replicate, especially if 20 SO subscribers moved on the alert before you did.

If you're relatively new, OR don't dedicate a lot of time to options, I would start by devouring the TastyTrade content.

TLDR: If you want to learn HOW to fish, and have a lot of time for fishing, you'll probably benefit. If you just want someone to give you a fish, or don't have much time, it probably isn't the best use of your money. The service is not cheap ($129 a month last time I checked).

btw, Klaiman was a prolific author on Seeking Alpha before SA decided to de-emphasize options content. Check out some of his articles for free to get a sense of his knowledge.
