Outstanding Options Education - Consistent returns on Trades
I have been a member of Steady Options for 2 years. I have learned a lot about options trade.

The founder is very knowledgeable about options trading. He runs his newsletter with the utmost integrity and dedication. He is always available to answer questions.

The idea is not for you to follow blindly the trades and execute them with your broker. It is about learning how to construct those trades, learn how to set entry and exit points.

Besides learning about options trading, you will also learn about trading discipline, the importance of adhering to one`s plan and rules. You will also build a strong sense of community as you interact with the other members.

The newsletter`s track record also speaks for itself. But it is not about a quick gain scheme. You need to be committed to learning and to the trading plan.

Consistency and education
After trying almost everything out there, i feel this is one of if not the most honest options educational resource i ve come across in the internet. The founder is a great guy and keeps in touch with the clients everytime. THe website is very organized and so is the methodology. The subscription price is very resonable and being part of the community is also a great thing. The statistics are very comprehensive and there is tons of data to be learned. I strongly recommend this to anyone who is intersted in learning about how to trade options with success. Thanks Kim for being there. 5 STars.

Excellent service, great community, great performance
Many members alerady expressed their opinion, I would agree with most of them. There is nothing not to like about SteadyOptions. There is a great community of very experienced members, so there is always someone to help.

I started with SteadyOptions which offers unique approach to non-directional trading by trading mix of strategies (compared to other services that trade mostly credit spreads). Since I'm in a different time zone, it was a bit too active for me due to the time difference, so I switched to Steady Condors. It was created especially for people seeking less active trading, and also interested in auto-trading.

Steady Condors is trading Iron Condors, but has very unique setup and unique adjustments, unlike anything you have seen. Its trading style was impacted by Sheridan Mentoring - both Kim and Jesse are members, and it shows. The risk management of both services is outstanding.

Kim and Jesse are both very resposive to questions, and if you really want to understand and learn their methods, they will do everything to help. This service will definitely help you to become a better trader.

Clear thinking, clear goals, great results.
You see services with great results and absolutely no backup plan, just waiting to be lit on fire by the temperamental nature of the stock markets.

You see services cautiously not telling you what they themselves buy or sell, instead selling you on a 'technique' for you to apply. Your losses are your failure to implement their way of doing things.

You see services with zero communication with their members, just pumping out orders for you to follow.

You see services where after a while you realize you know more than the owners do, and yet you're the client in that equation.

And then you get to SteadyOptions. The level of depth and focus of its team is just excellent.

Strategies are designed in mind with not how much you can make, but how much you can lose, so you can always stay in the game. And they hit double-digit percentage gains year after year.

All trades are posted, all analysis shared.

No question goes unanswered, no bad question is ever mocked. The team does an excellent job in communicating with its members.

Two thumbs up.

Steady and Consistent Gains, Great Community
The name says it all. SteadyOptions. The goal is to have "steady and consistent gains with a high winning ratio and limited risk." And they achieve this goal with great success.

What many traders don't realize is that limiting losses is much more important than maximizing gains. You need 100% gain to recover from 50% loss. This is why having minimal drawdowns is so important.

In addition to impressive performance, this service has great community of traders who discuss the strategies and share ideas. The forum is very high quality, nothing like Yahoo groups or EliteTrader.

The only negative is that getting fills is sometimes not easy. It requires some time, and in some cases, you might miss the trade. But this is part of the game. For less active traders they now have the Steady Condors and Anchor Trades.

The price is somewhere in the middle of the range for options trading services, but for what you get, it is well worth it.

I would highly recommend this service.

Simply the best options service
I tried many options newsletters. SteadyOptions is in its own league.

There is an excellent community of traders, including some very knowledgeable and experienced people. All trades are fully explained and discussed. The forum is very active.

What makes SO so valuable is the "portfolio approach". Unlike many other services that just send you few unrelated trades, SO aims to maintain a diversified options portfolio using different strategies. The trades are supposed to complement each other in terms of the Greeks. The strategies are constantly tailored to the changing market conditions.

The customer service is outstanding. Every single email or forum post is answered in person by Kim, the service owner.

The service is fairly active, and if you are too busy to keep up, you can try one of their other services, Steady Condors or Anchor Trades, which can be autotraded.

Highly recommended.

Thoroughly recommend A+! Great personable service and trades
This truly is an amazing service and worth every penny. The owner Kim is an amazing individual and his trades are carefully thought through with numerous discussions and educational explanations. A very personable service that is worth every penny - you feel like part of a team here, not just another number. And the trade ideas are nicely laid out. clear and of relatively low risk. I just recently had the opportunity of a lifetime to work as a volunteer in Kenya for 6 months. When I informed Kim of this and the fact I wouldn't be able to use the service for that period, he gladly refunded my subscription renewal. Part of the reason I was able to afford this trip is due to the profits I took from nearly all of the suggested trades that I chose to enter. And I will most definitely be back upon my return to enjoy this service once again. I highly recommend this service to all - without a shadow of a doubt the best one I have ever used. Happy trading,

Simon Powell

Great educational and informational tool.
I have been a member of SteadyOptions since it was a Yahoo newsgroup, about 2 years or so. When I joined, I was pretty much an options novice with a good background in stock trading. Greeks? What does that have to do with stock trading?

My objective was to take advantage of earnings season, at a lower risk. This was Initially returns were almost mind-blowing, almost like free money. Later, trades became much more challenging, as market volatility dropped to extremely low levels. At this point, Kim increased his coverage to help us achieve our objectives, including monthly/weekly condors, calendars, etc.

What does this show? No strategy works at its best in all markets. Kim has made adjustments to his strategy to accommodate changing market conditions, with proven success. This is something few services manage to accomplish.

Pros:

Solid performance, extremely good communication (Post a question, Kim will answer, usually the same day, if another member does not answer earlier.) Excellent education, and plenty of pointers to further study. It would be hard to remain an options novice after a year of membership.

Cons:

Fills can be a bitch. Getting the best fills is work. Follow the topics, investigate what a good price is at current volatility and market, and make an order. If you wait for the signal, you will miss trades. Sure you may get better prices, but Kim is very good at finding a sweet spot. If you want great fills can't wait for the signal.

The service is getting a few too many offerings for my tastes, but since they are under different "advisers" it has not affected the base SteadyOptions performance. As long as this continues to be the case, they do not really bother me, but it is something to watch in the future.

Overall, I recommend steady options for newer traders willing to learn and work a little, and experienced traders looking for a new trading method for part of their portfolio.

An excellent service
I joined Steady Options about 3 months ago. I have been trading options for five years, and I have an extensive theoretical education. I really like pre-earnings trades (ie closing out the trade BEFORE the company reports earnings), so Steady Options style of trading is perfect for me. What I like most about the service is that I am learning how to better spot trades that are likely to be profitable. For me, I am not so hung up on trying to exactly duplicate the model portfolio, as markets move all the time and it is nearly impossible to get the exact prices that someone else gets. Sometimes a better price is available, sometimes worse. The most important thing is to be able to do this for myself 5, 10, and 20 years down the road. Yes, I joined SO to make money, but I am also there for the community and learning. It is great to be able to have in depth discussions about trades with other serious traders.

Kim is an excellent trader, and his opinion and insight is valuable to hear. He usually answers questions on the forum promptly, which I appreciate.

I do believe that it is important to have a good understanding of options before joining a service like Steady Options, you will be better able to understand the trades and the kind of risk you are taking.

Low risk option trade advices
I joined this service to balance my trade portfolio and to introduce lower risk trades. Most of the trade alerts given are strangles, calendars or straddles chosen to minimize losses in the event the market goes against the trade. The service enables me to put the trades on and forget them until I get an alert that the trade will be closed shortly. Kim the proprietor does all the research work.

My experience over 3-4 months is positive in terms of net P&L. My returns on capital employed are approx 10% after all commissions for the period and I am in the trades for an average of 5-10 days so capital turnover is good.

I disagree with the negative remarks about fills. Clearly the writers are not options traders. I frequently get fills that are better than the proprietors fills by being patient and not taking trades if I don't get a good price. There is no imperative to take every trade. The market moves.

I intend to continue my subscription as it balances my portfolio.
