What if you had a strategy to quickly HEDGE directional risk, in ANY type of market environment, and even turn around losing trades... AND... maybe even turn them into winners??

AND... What if that same strategy took advantage of time decay AND volatility collapse more so than any other method?

This strategy would create a major trading edge for any trade taken, tilting the trading odds way in your favor….

Would this strategy be worth your time to learn?


Here’s your opportunity…

Over my 30+ years of trading options I’ve found that to become a successful trader and to stay successful is all about managing risk and the probabilities of winning versus losing.

But let’s face it. Every trader has losing trades. And traders tend to hang on to losers longer thinking they can turn the trade around to at least a break even. 

Then when they can’t take the pain anymore, they sell.

And that one stink’in trade ruins their previously stellar trading results for the entire month (which had lots of other winning trades)! 

Every honest trader has experienced this. 

It feels defeating and stressful.  

But what if I told you there are two little-used option strategies that can banish this painful occurrence forever?  

And these same strategies can, hands down, take advantage of [Time Decay AND Volatility] better than ANY other option strategy?

These two Dynamic Option Strategies are the “Butterfly and Long Condor Spread.”

My Secret Trading Weapon!

They are designed to stack the winning odds way in your favor if you just know How, Why and When to use them.

The Butterfly and Long Condor are (High Reward-Low Risk) option strategies that can be traded for a variety of different reasons with different goals in mind, such as: 

         High Reward-Low Risk Directional Trades
         Non-Directional Trades

And they offer an unmatched way to quickly HEDGE directional risk and Theta [Time Decay] in ANY (repeat: ANY) type of market environment.

And if you don’t know how to HEDGE, you’re a trading accident waiting to happen…

"The Butterfly strategy is one of my favorites. It's the 'Big Winners' that eventually make the difference in any trading account. With all the so-called 'low risk' option strategies being sold to the public, an account without the potential to hit a 'Big One' once in a while (while not "betting the farm") is a slow ride up a long hill. But this strategy is as easy as ABC."

Now in trading, such as in life, we never know what’s around the corner, but we would always like to be prepared for whatever comes our way.  

The S&P 500 has notched a fresh milestone.

The benchmark index has now doubled from a closing low hit on March 23, 2020; this 100% surge marks the fastest bull market doubling since World War II. 

This bull market has lasted so long that many traders only know how to buy the dip!

But when the herd heads for the exit it’s going to get ugly fast!

Markets take the stairs up and the elevator down and stocks tend to fall much, much faster than they rise. 

So, to get you prepared and proficient to trade and be profitable trading in ANY (repeat: ANY) type of market environment I’ve developed an all new, Live Option Trading Workshop on the….

Butterfly and Long Condor.

"Best money and time I’ve ever spent. Excellent!!!!"
"You have such a great knack of explaining all the special things one should know to trade these strategies. Thanks much."
"Many thanks for another awesome presentation, Larry!! "
"Fantastic course, presented with great passion. Both the Butterfly and Condor will now be part of my trading strategies. Thank You Larry!"

"Hey Folks, I am loving my subscription to the Trade Club and the Alert Services.  I paid for it in the first week.  I guess I am now a "Scholarship Student"?  It is great to start and finish the market day with Larry, put on the trades, not be glued to the screen all day, go do real life stuff, check in a time or two and be there for the close.  I am retired, the market is my main hobby, and this is EXACTLY what I have been looking for!  I am learning like a sponge every day!  Kind regards,"   
"I joined your alert service plus, including trade room, in Nov of last year and grew my $2500 account which had dwindled from using other alert services over the past year. My account since joining your service is now just short of $5000 which was my starting point a year ago! I made only 1 contract trades to be very cautious. Best results after trying several other services! Thanks Larry!! "   
"This is a great service and value to enhance your trading. I've been in Larry's service for 2 months now and have had wonderful results. 85% of my option trades have been winners! "   
"I completely agree with David. I have been with Larry’s service for almost 1 year. Paid more than the tuition. The practical options knowledge & your daily follow-up on each alert is excellent. Thxs a lot. "   
"Larry, Awesome trade yesterday on W!! Paid for your alert service for a year!! Thank you, sir!! "   
"I really do enjoy the Trading Room and have taken a few of your courses. I have to say, I've learned so much from you in the past year, the biggest being patience lol. Everything is explained very well along with a set of rules to follow for minimal risk and higher probability for a successful trade. I really appreciate the time you give for the Q&A sessions although I can't always attend. Your expertise and guidance through this market is undoubtedly worth its weight in gold "

Let’s face it: I won’t always be offering this service. And nothing would make me any happier than for you to be able to do this yourself when I stop. 

So, while this is a completely “done-for-you” service, I have designed it so you can catapult your trading skills during your membership

For example, you’ll see why I chose the trade based on the chart pattern. You’ll see why I chose the option strategy. You’ll get an “After the Close” Educational Video outlining the trade so you can gain knowledge from your experience implementing the Alert trades.  

Research shows that we learn the most from experience, not just study. By combining the two, you’re going to take your trading to an entirely new level. 

Plus, you’re also going to get an entire 13 months in my Power Cycle Trading Club at no additional cost. This will give you an opportunity to get your questions answered daily

Most of the Trading Club benefits are listed in the What You’ll Receive Section below.

"The content was a bull’s eye for what I need to know! "   
"Thank you, Larry... you are, unequivocally, one of the very best trading teachers available today!"   

Why would you listen to me?   

Over the past three decades I’ve been actively trading in the financial securities markets.

Trading is my passion. I knew this in my twenties, and this is the career path I chose to pursue. Eventually, as Executive Vice President of one of the largest international oil trading companies in the world, I managed the international trading desk where we traded and managed billions of dollars’ worth of oil, foreign exchange and financial market derivatives.

My trading group was one of the first to trade over-the-counter options on cargoes of foreign crude oil and traded millions of barrels of these crude oil option contracts.

I’ve been involved with a number of hedge funds on a consulting basis and in 2009 I set up an over-the-counter crude oil options brokerage desk for the world’s largest privately owned oil Brokerage Company.

I have a fascination for all things trading and options are my main go-to trading strategy and passion…

"Larry's courses are well worth your time. He is the Matt Damon in "Good Will Hunting". He looks at the numbers on the blackboard (options) that no one can figure out - and he just "sees it"!! Take that as a compliment! "   
"Larry, you are a natural at mixing and matching various option strategies. Your mind’s working amazes me"   
"Texan, Denton Cooley was the world's best heart surgeon... Larry is the financial markets Low Risk/High Profitability Options Master!"   
"Just to let you know, I’ve spent a lot of money on courses, and yours are the best I have signed up for. In fact, had I been lucky enough to just start out with you, I would not of needed the others."   
"Larry, you do a great job of demystifying complex market instruments and make them very easy to understand "Wall$treet " for us little guys. I love attending your trading room whenever I can, and the hands-on assistance you provide with great patience for all Q&A's. Again, I thank you so much for facilitating such a positive learning environment and for your incredible passion for markets that is so contagious. You always offer great value for your courses "
