    Hello, I came upon your site surfing around and I am VERY interested in your service. I’m a finance professor for my job and years ago I traded stocks and options for several years, so I’m familiar with financial markets, instruments, rates, and systems. Since I have had jobs at different universities through my career, I have been able to roll funds out of some of my 403b plans into a self-directed IRA LLC (Provision Capital, LLC) that I created so that I could be able to take full advantage of market opportunities. I would like to put these funds to work across a variety of diversified services, including yours. As I just recently went through a divorce (finalized last January, 2010), now I find myself uncertain as to whether I will ever be able to retire. Perhaps with services with yours, though, I might be able to once again believe that retirement is possible (I’m now 50). I have a few questions, though:
    Would I be able to set up an account in my LLC’s name with your firm (to trade that account per your recommendations as manager of the LLC) and is auto-trading available? Further, when do your recommendations occur usually? That is, do we need to move on your recommendations immediately to take positions? Thank you for your input.

    I was a member a year or two ago. I loved your insight and calls. Frankly, I think I was probably too uneducated to truly understand, and sometimes follow, some of your suggestions. Well, I have studied up a bit and practiced more and want to come home again – much more appreciative of your skill and perhaps a little more able to benefit from your great service. I have paid to join the Wait List $ and will look forward to joining you, OP, again and this community.

    Is there any brokers that will auto-trade this service?

    Hi, I was just scanning your website with an intent to join the newsletter subscription. In scanning to see what the forums are doing or various other areas of Q&A I noticed a lot of the postings are rather dated…often over a year old. In addition to really honing my options trading skills, getting mkt timely insights, and solid recommendations…..I am keen to find a home base for continued Q&A along with active forums of lie minded traders.
    In my scanning I was wondering if I missed something and that is why I am only seeing the dated inputs.
    I really am excited about your newsletter and OP Toolbox info. Can you tell me is the $50 trial still available for 45 DAY PERIOD. If so, can cancel anytime if not for me.
    Much appreciated ,
