Excellent Service
I have been a member of SteadyOptions for almost four months and told the founder and main contact, Kim Klaiman that I would not submit a review until I had a chance to use his service for a few months. In February of this year, I joined SteadyOptions as a trial member and even cancelled at the end of my trail membership. It was not because I did not like the service, it was because I did not understand it. I went back to my studying and then joined again in May 2015. I can honestly say, it was a great decision.

First of all, as other reviewers have said, I would not join this service until you understand option basics. If you do not, then you will, as I did, quit before you have a chance to full utilize its benefits. Now that I am fully engaged and actively trade every day, I think it is excellent and, best of all, I am actually making money. I started paper trading first then moved to a small allocation of funds and will most likely increase my allocation as I I become more and more comfortable with strategies and have a chance to fully utilize them. Kim, is excellent teacher but he expects, and I completely agree with him, that you understand the basics first. What I like best is the forum and that Kim will lay out a strategy and other members will comment on it. His membership is comprised of some very and I mean very smart traders who are always willing to share their experiences and strategies. The wealth of knowledge that is afforded each member is simply amazing. Kim, will let you know well in advance of a trade he is thinking about and provide you with enough details to start setting up trade. Yes, when I first joined, I missed opportunities to enter trades at the pricing he recommended but if you are patient, you can most times achieve very similar entry and exit prices. But I have one caveat, this is not a process that you can set on auto pilot and forget. You will need to be active and have access to your trading platform each day. I use ThinkorSwim's mobile application on my cell phone which provides me access to all my trades when I am unable to be at my desk.

As another member said in his review, I also used optionalpha to gain a good base knowledge and then used steady options to make great consistent profits. You will lose some money when you first start. This all about setting realistic expectations. Do not think that you will make a profit on every trade, it just does not happen. Kim's monthly returns are quite impressive and he is completely transparent, both winners and losers. As far I am concerned, his honesty is beyond reproach. But remember to come close to what he achieves you need to manage your trades carefully.

Option trading is scary if you do not know what you are doing but Kim's avocation of a disciplined strategy makes it a much simpler process to implement. I am a big proponent of taking control of your investments and option trading is one way to do. At Steadyoptions, you can use Kim's non-directional strategy to do this. I think most people who will read this review, at one time or another have used a financial planner. If you do, ask your financial planner about options and I GUARANTEE they will look at you cross eyed and tell you they are too risky. This is absolute nonsense and when I discussed this with my friends they say the same thing. The reason is simply, they, like a financial planner do not understand it. In my opinion, the financial planning community is really taking advantage of the public since, not once, did any of my person I spoke to ever mention options as a way to grow my investments. Why ? because it is too much work for them ! They just want you to pay them even if they lose money for you. Great business if you can get it.

So take my advice, take control of your investments and learn option trading. Don't be afraid. Study hard, paper trade and join Steady Options. It will be worth your time and money. I am glad I did it.

Unique and valuable service!
This is a service that is unique to any other that I'm aware of. Kim Klaiman, the owner, has structured this in a way that benefits members of ALL trading backgrounds - beginner or advanced. This service goes beyond the scope of a newsletter because of its educational properties.

As Kim states, the goal of Steady Options is to make us all better traders. This is true, and therein lies the value. When one begins a subscription, there are a set of links that give detailed explanations on a range of set-ups and systems that Kim trades. These set-ups have taken him a long time to craft and this information alone is priceless. Each trade begins with a discussion forum BEFORE the trade is taken. In that forum, members are encouraged to ask questions about the rationale behind the trade. To me, this is the real bread and butter. Not only does reading the thread of questions and answers provide education, but it also creates a sense of community. There is NO question that is too novice for the forums. EVERY question that I've ever asked has been answered by Kim and other members of the community. Once Kim enters the trade, he sends out a trade alert that you can choose to execute or simply follow as part of the learning process. The trade discussion remains active through the end of the trade and beyond, along with a massive database of pre-archived trades and discussions. There is also a General Forum where members can post general questions pertaining to ANYTHING trading related - literally. All of this is archived for hours of reading pleasure for the trading enthusiast.

This is only a small sample of the wealth of content provided by Steady Options. I know that Kim works night and day to keep this service up and running at such an efficient level. Since joining, I have grown tremendously as a trader. I understand more clearly how options behave, the impact of the Greeks on pricing, the importance of allocation guidelines, trade set-ups and back-testing, strategies for various market conditions, etc...

This is a good thing here.

Do Not Recommend
The main service trades volatility primarily using straddles and calendars prior to earnings announcements. Success using these strategies often depends on order fills - the success of the trades often depends on order fill. Over the course of a year it became clear that IB was getting better fills than other brokers. If you used IB you did better than others. I use Thinkorswim - our fills were nowhere close and thus our returns were poor. I don't recommend the service. The owner is short tempered and over hypes his returns. There are far better services out there.

Honest and lots to learn
Personally I am not looking for a service that just tell me what to buy and that's it. Options trading is complicated and mentally taxing but Kim made it easier for me. Not easy but easier. Which is important as I am looking to learn how to fish for the future. In the meantime as I learn, I am also making money with the service.

All calls are honest and documented by screen shots of the orders. You know it is not bluff (like some service I was in) and I am assured of Kim's investment in the success of the service.

Five stars. Lots of hard work and learnings but wonderful journey so far.

Honesty and transparancy above all
I have been a member for 2 years. This service is really unique. The transparency and dedication of the owner, Kim, is unbelievable. You learn so much from him and the community! And did I mention that I also make money?

As others mentioned, it is not a "get rich in 10 minutes per month" type of service. It does require a learning curve and time commitment. But if you commit, it will be very rewarding.

Integrity and expertise in options trading
Steady Options trades a combination of earnings and non earnings related strategies that are non directional. Kim Klaiman, who runs steady options, is first and foremost concerned with monitoring the risk of each position. The philosophy is that a steady stream of modest winners will outweigh the fewer and hopefully smaller losers. In my time with steady options I have had dozens of trades that netted more than 20% returns and a few that made over 50%. I personally never had a trade lose more than 25%. The number of winning trades far exceeded the number of losing trades by a factor of at least 2 to 1.

But all of that is not the most impressive thing about Kim and steady options. The best part is that Kim teaches his followers how to trade for themselves and he is completely transparent about how he trades and why he is making each individual trade. He takes what the market gives him and doesn't force trades into situations where they wouldn't have a high probability of success. He is extremely honest and professional and will never tell you that trading options is a get rich quick proposition. It takes hard work and knowledge. He'll provide the latter if you provide the former.

Great Service for those with a solid background in options
SteadyOptions has great trading alerts. Although sometime you may not be able to enter the trade at the same price as kim, the alerts are timely, and at times you can get a better price later on. This service is not for someone that cannot have access to a trading platform throughout the day as 1-2 adjustments are made throughout the day.

I would not start with this service if you do not have a good base knowledge of options. Although kim is very patient at teaching the techniques he uses to trade, it is difficult to grasp the concept if your base knowledge is lacking. This is not a flaw of the service, just how the service seems to be focused.

I used optionalpha to gain a good base knowledge and used steady options to make great consistent profits. You can expect to lose some money when you first start. Kim says it himself to make realistic goals,( for the first year, aim to not lose any money would be a realistic goal). From being with the service for 6 months, i can see that it's definitely possible to be profitable once the concepts have been mastered adequately. Definitely not a a service to blindly follow, but one to teach you how to make your own trades.

I wish i found this service sooner and glad i joined when i did!

Great value for the picks
I have been a regular options trader for quite some time now and subscribe to this service for alternative option strategies. I have had success with this service and it has easily paid for itself over and over. Please note, if you do not understand complex options I would not recommend this product until your experience increases.

Great service - no hype, just results !
I'm still new to options but have moved to them from stocks due to the liquidity and rapid turnaround of the trades. I tried it out on my own, but was always picking calls when the moves had already been made, or holding for far too long to get one of the 854% gains that all the other websites talk about. I think my win rate was lees than 45% the first month I tried trading this way. Since then, I have improved dramatically, in part thanks to Kim's service at Steady Options.

Kim's site is simple, straightforward and he delivers consistent returns. I found him through investimonials and tracked his performance for a few months before I actually joined. I am so happy with his service that I have signed up for the full year!! I made enough to cover this in less than two trades of his the other week, and set my exit target too conservatively than him and could have doubled my return on another trade.

Interestingly, as others have mentioned you may get slightly different fills than him, sometimes better, sometimes worse, but this is MUCH better than trying to chase the alerts of other trading services, which often cause you to lose money. I know that I don't have to RUN to my computer to trade (hard to do because of my full time job) but I can still enter a trade even up to a couple of days later if I get filled, and still get the same profits as the alert.

A couple of caveats. This is NOT a day trading service, although some of his trades work out in less than a couple of days, these are non-directional trades for the most part - based on calendar or earnings plays, and so require a bit more patience. Also, the point mentioned before about commissions is well taken, as fairly often there are trade adjustments, and if you are with one of the bigger brokers that may well eat at your profits.

This won't make you 10,000% richer or even 157% on one trade, but check out all his results at the website and you'll see he is consistent, and making over 100% a year, which is nothing to be sneezed at.

Oh, and there is no chatroom. While you think this might be a drawback, it is actually an advantage. Having been in at least four trading chatrooms, they tend either to be full of misinformation or trivial rubbish unrelated to trading. His way is actually much simpler, and he answers questions individually and very patiently.

All in all, I'm very happy and I expect to learn a great deal over the next year

Learn non-directional strategies while making money!
I have tried many newsletter services over the last year and Steadyoptions is hands down the best for option trading in my opinion. If you wish you can simply follow the trades that Kim posts and you will make money - of course not every time but the risks are managed. The trades are always discussed before hand and it is not unheard of to get slightly better fills than the official trade.

But beyond that I have learned so much in a short time about options and the greeks from the forums and other members in the community. I wish I had found this site years ago.

PS I never leave reviews for anything!
