Learn How Much Money You're Giving Away, Who's Taking it & How to Stop the Bleeding!

And Don't Forget... Saving $1,000 

is the Same as Making $1,000!

The largest options market makers make a fortune off the billions of contracts traded annually. While this is widely accepted, it's not necessarily clear how they make their money.

And that secrecy is their advantage!

How do I know this?

I was one of the top Options Market Makers working at one of the largest Investment Banks in the world.

My sole job was to make huge options markets for the biggest Hedge Fund Managers and manage the risk. 

So, I too had a few tricks up my sleeve.

And you're about to learn them.

In fact, I'll reveal how the options market makers maneuver underneath the surface and set sophisticated traps targeting millions of investors who are unaware of their tactics.

Make no mistake, you are bleeding money ... without even knowing it.

How much money?

The degree to which you lose money depends on several factors, but 

Options Calculator

 it's safe to say most investors are losing thousands of dollars per year.

Whose fault is that?

You'll soon discover that in one case, the leakage is not your fault.  

But most of the time, the options market makers are feeding off your lack of knowledge.

Put another way...

You're freely giving away your money.

And it Adds Up!

The options market makers are likely taking 2-5% of your total options premiums ("% Rake") over time simply because you're letting them. 

While that doesn't sound like much, consider this:

The cost of 2 round-trip 1-lot options trades per day with a $1.50 premium per contract and a 2% rake equals $3,000 per year. 
Many investors are making 5 to 20 trades per day, which can drive the annual cost much higher toward $7,500 - $30,000.

And that doesn't include a few big mistakes you might make along the way.

In fact, it's very possible that you paid the options market makers $10,000 even though your $10,000 account had no profits or losses for the year. 

Everyone knows the Options Market Makers make billions in profits each year. The secret is how they do it. And the answer goes much deeper than just making the bid-offer spread.  In fact, I'll show you how they lay mathematical traps that unsuspecting investors walk right into. And once you see it, you'll learn how to avoid giving your money away to them for free.

Estimate Your Losses

Days    x    # of Trades Per Day    x    Lot Size    x   Multiplier    x    Avg. Options Premium   x   % Rake

Here's the Formula

Days  x  # of Trades Per Day  x  Lot Size  x  Multiplier  x  Avg. Options Premium  x  % Rake

252 days x (2 trades x 2 in/out) x 1 lot x 100 multiplier x $1.50 premium x 2% rake

 = $3,024 per year 

Enter your details in the calculator to figure out what you are losing.


If you trade once per week, put in 52 days. Once every day and throw in 252.

You can adjust your average 2-way Trades Per Day by changing "trades."

Obviously, the more lots you trade the greater the size of the trade. 1 lot is just the minimum. Change "1 lot" to fit your average lot size.

The average Options Premium size affects the total size of the trade. So, if you're trading 1 lot of TSLA options that is a lot bigger than a 1 lot of AMC options. I can't say it enough, the more money you are moving around, the more money that is leaking out. 

You can calculate the average Options Premium by going through your year-end statements. Multiply lot size of each trade times the Options Premium, add all the Premiums up, and then divide by total lots (contracts).

Finally, the "% Rake" depends on your style of trading and the strategies you employ. Again, that rake will likely average between 1-5% over the course of a year. If you are a day trader buying options then it will be more on the high side.
