Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Mark Sebastian's Option Pit

Can anyone share experiences with Mark Sebastian's "Option Pit"?

Stock and Index Options Trading and Mentoring for Option Traders | Option Pit

I am gathering feedback before inviting Mark to do a Webinar on (formerly BMT) covering Advanced Options Trading. So I am specifically interested in his educational method and style.

Feedback appreciated. I am not an options guy...


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Great instructor

I know this thread is from a long time ago but I can attest to Mark and the OptionPit education. It is top notch. I learned the basics and gained valuable insight as to how options are priced (important for knowing when to a net seller vs buyer), the use of time decay, and hedging strategies that are great (but require a ton of capital and rebalancing). He helps you look at options how market makers do and the approach is logical and grounded in math- as it should be. The importance of historical volatility and implied volatility are emphasized and you appreciate why many options are still traded in the pits.
