I Learned How To Trade Successfully On My Own
I've been a member since the very beginning, and at the time, I was new to options and knew nothing about trading. It certainly requires a lot of hard work and dedication to become successful. I credit this service for setting the foundation and philosophy that has made me the trader I am today.

Throughout the years, I've learned various trading strategies with excellent risk/reward, the importance of position sizing, following your trading plan, the power of having a balanced portfolio, and having an open mind about using different strategies when market conditions change. I've also learned how to backtest on my own and to trade what I'm comfortable with by making the strategies my own.

Many newsletter services would prefer to hold your hand through each and every trade in an effort to keep you as a member. Many of them will also delete negative comments and manipulate trade results. This service does the exact opposite, and the team at Steady Options, as well as the community, actually want you to succeed on your own. Nothing is hidden, you can read all the back and forth debates and arguments with complete transparency. This service is constantly looking to improve as traders and continue to add value by introducing new strategies to their arsenal.

This service has my highest recommendation, and I am thankful to Kim and his team for providing such valuable support over the years.

A Unique Service
If you’ve been perusing Investimonials looking for a good Options site and so you’ve read the reviews here – then you already know you’ve come across an outstanding site. Lucky you. If you came across the SteadyOptions website and were looking for unbiased endorsements – then again you’ve found them.

What else can I add? You’ve already read, about the profitability, transparency, community forum, the friendliness and above all, the education.

Here’s my angle. I’ve been a subscriber for a couple of years. I don’t know the owner/administrator, Kim Klaiman, personally. I’ve had limited email exchanges with him, I’ve posted on the trading forum, and of course I’ve read his posts and comments. The guy is such a mensch! He is helpful and understanding. He will suffer fools, he will listen to your ideas, he will try to make things work for you. If you want it, it becomes a personal relationship.

As Jeff Smith might say, “there’s a lot of looking out for the other fella” here. This goes way beyond option trading. This goes to what a person is made of. You learn not only from his expertise but from the efforts he makes and the way he interacts with others. This is a guy that you’re just proud to say you know him.

I don’t want to go further off the deep end :-), you get the idea. Thanks for reading.

Options with an edge
I have traded options for about six years and a charter member and student of Steady Options (SO). I say student because while I have learned a lot from from SO, I still learn something new practically everyday. I have used various services over the years with limited and inconsistent results. Steady Options is the only one I have stayed with for this long a period of time. The reasons for this loyalty are as follows.

Obviously, first and foremost is I make money. Not the get rich quick kind of money that so many sites promise, but more the steady accumulation of returns that over a period of time add up to very respectful annual returns. SO doesn't try to hit home runs (although it sometimes happens), but rather relies on base hits to produce the enviable annual returns. The predominant strategy used at SO is low risk. The biggest improvement to my trading is that since joining SO my losing trades are fewer and the inherent nature of the strategy(s) result in much smaller losses. Additionally, when a trade starts to go bad SO is quick to make adjustments to minimize the loss and often times turns it into a winner. The risk/reward and the winners/losers ratios are superior.

Secondly, the site promises an education and boy does it deliver. The articles and links to instructive articles are abundant. The best education comes from reading the material and then see it demonstrated by a professional. The fact that the professional has skin in the game (trades all recommendations with his own funds) is a big plus to me. For example, before joining SO, I had a vague understanding of the greeks. Seldom used them. Soon after joining SO I became a greek geek. To my surprise they weren't hard to learn and are a requisite to establishing and maintaining these strategies.

I could go on a long time about the advantages of trading the SO methodologies, but I'll stop by saying that if there is a better site for producing low risk trades with a definite edge, I've never found it.

My goto resource for Option Trades
Ive used an Option Newsletter subscription service in the past which was a complete sham. This is nothing like this. The objective is Option education to enable you to trade. You learn loads off the other members. There are no get rich quick messages here which I find refreshing. Only genuine option trading strategies with realistic profit expectations and risk management.

Excellent Option Trading Service
I’ve been a SteadyOptions subscriber for the last 9 months and am planning to stay with the service for a long time to come. I tried many other newsletters, but none of them were able to match SteadyOption’s consistency or returns. I’m very comfortable with the overall trading style and risk management. SteadyOptions trades a mix of non-directional strategies: pre-earnings plays and theta-positive income trades with index options. These types of trades are not particularly risky to begin with, and in addition they’re managed actively when necessary. The SteadyOptions user community is very active and knowledgeable, i.e. all trade ideas are discussed extensively, which is a great learning opportunity and a good information source that allows subscribers to gradually develop their own trading style or open discussed trades even before they’re added to the current SteadyOptions portfolio. Getting good fills takes a bit of practice and patience (and you will miss a few trades when prices start to move quickly), but once you get the hang of it all, you are likely to see steady profits. Highly recommended, 5 stars all the way!!

Very high amount of LOSING TRADES
This guy who runs Steady Options thinks he knows what he is doing, but almost all of the trades I received were losers. Very frustrating. Some of the trades resulted in break-even, but most resulted in loss of capital for my account. I don't like his strategy at all, and frankly, I question his intelligence.

Honest and useful
Let’s start. The first question should be: Why I am writing this review and why someone should believe me?

Ok, I am writing this review because it may help someone like me that believe that trading is more than pure gambling and is still trying to find his way in his jungle of newsletters, gurus, prophets and scammers. The second reason is because I want this website and this group survives, it is hard to find places like Steady Options and in my own benefit, I want the site to prosper.

I would like to break the review in two parts: The proposed trading methodology and the site services and his owner.

Honestly speaking the assessment of trading methodology depends a lot of one’s own experience. In my experience after trying different stile and modality of trading, I never found before the so famous edge that allows consistent good results. After bump into the issue volatility, because I had losses many times for ignoring this topic, I realized that this could be my way, and start reading and getting information about volatility until I found in the web site Seeking Alpha some very interesting articles about ways of profiting from volatility that made sense to me. The author of these articles, after some time, decided gather his conclusions and proposals and created a web site with the goal of having a place were we could develop a trading methodology based on volatility and money management, and I joined this group since the beginning.

Because my lack of faith and because I have already being beaten before by the Dr. Market, during long time I only paper trade and followed the results published, until I was convinced that the trading method was robust and had a “positive mathematical hope” . I will not try to convince you the same, it is your money, and you have to do your homework. You have to decide if it is your trading stile and commit yourself in acquire and learn all the necessary tools to engage trading in this way. For me it works, and works well.

About the site services and his owner, I have only good words to say. I know the amount of time, back-testing and resources that you have to make available to people to offer trading candidates that can provide this “positive mathematical hope”, I believe that you understand that the deal is to enhance the probabilities of success. Try to apply this methodology in any option without a pre-filter and without having good entry and exit points and I can guarantee that you will fail. Considering the results I have and the resources that I would have to have to obtain the same information I consider the price I paid not only fair but cheap.

Finally, I want to talk about Kim, I do not know him personally, I do not even live in US, but I follow his articles, comments and advices for long time. During all this time he always kept a friendly and professional attitude, I never heard from him fake promises of returns and I always saw him properly advising and teaching whoever seeks for help.

Knowledgeable source for education and trading insights
I would definetelly recommend SteadyOptions for the trader who is tired of the "double your money in a month" type of philosophy and just wants to steadily and confidently increase his account by credible and attainable figures. Kim is a great trader while also being a patient and thoughtful teacher and his forum is an invaluable source of wisdom for the serious trader that wants to learn to fish his own fish.

It is refreshing to learn from a real trader, with real numbers, trading his own money as opposed to the other "traders" that "teach" for a living.

Great service at a reasonable price with steady gains!
Lower risk than most options trading using pre-earnings trades, both calendars and straddles/strangles

Honesty and Service
I have traded various options strategies for the past 3 years and as a former Forex trader, I have become an extreme critical skeptic of the vast vast majority of educational and service sites. Having been introduced to SteadyOptions through the recommendations of a friend, I of course approached this venture with the same skepticism and disdain that I hold for almost every educator and signal provider hawking their wares on the internet.

After 3 months following the site I must say, this site is different.

First, please take responsibility for every trade you enter and insure that you are focused learning the process and do not treat the site like a signal service.

Your objective should be to educate yourself to be able to set up your own trades through emulation, before Kim posts his analysis, as entry points are the key and getting the best fill possible determines the success or failure of the trade. These are not run away high profitable trade strategies, ( although from time to time they may be) these are trades were turning 15% to 25% per trade as the norm. As an example if you are in a trade for .65 the goal may be to exit for .75 to .80. Therefore, the entry price is extremely critical.

Forcing or chasing a trade is not recommended and yes, often it is difficult to get the same fills as Kim as he is entering the trade based on his analysis and taking advantage of opening and closing market conditions and by the time he posts his entry, the trade may have run away. Of course there are times when you can get a better entry but it tends to be the exception and not the rule.

I would have given it 5 stars but the web site tends to be a bit cumbersome ( follow a topic) (new posts are at the end of the topic) but once you get the hang of the environment it is very workable.

Bottom line I have covered my subscription cost 12 times over.
