Trading Options – Course by Dan Keegan
Trading Options was designed by Dan Keegan so that you will have a full and instinctive understanding of options trading upon completion of the program. The core of the course consists of twelve on-line mentoring sessions with your personal mentor who tracks your progress as you trade real options on a state-of-the-art trading platform. Your first session does not count against your twelve sessions and is primarily a “get to know you” session where your mentor will discover your goals as a trader. Your regular sessions are scheduled at times convenient for both you and your mentor and last for 60-90 minutes. All sessions are recorded and you will receive your recording within hours of your session. Our students have found the process of one-on-one mentoring to be interactive, personal, and productive.
To ensure that you have the requisite knowledge and background of options and options trading you will receive an on-line file containing our text Trading Options in PDF format and companion videos. You can study this material at your own pace and you will have access to it for as long as you need. Your mentor will evaluate your understanding of the material and your trading performance and will assign exercises between sessions to strengthen your trading acumen. As your understanding and knowledge of options grows, your mentor will have you apply that knowledge on your trading platform and evaluate and hone your trading. You can complete the program at your own pace as your life and schedule allow.
When your twelve individual sessions are over, your relationship with the Chicago School of Trading is not. The CST Student Lounge is a forum where our students, graduates and mentors exchange market observations, pose and answer questions, upload articles, link to other sites, and discuss market strategies. The Student Lounge comes alive on Friday after the market closes and Dan hosts an on-line interactive meeting discussing the week in the markets.
All of our options mentors are experienced traders with years of trading experience both on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange and on computer trading platforms. The Chicago School of Trading believes strongly in the Chicago Tradition, where one generation of traders passes their knowledge to the next. Dan Keegan learned his craft from the very first generation of options traders at the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) where options trading began in 1973. Dan and the other mentors he has selected are among the very best of their generation and pioneered many of the strategies that are taught in our course.
Upon completion of your individual mentoring sessions, you will receive a Certificate of Completion from The Chicago School Trading.
The price of our Options Course is $5,500.00 US.
