Since it started 6months back, OptionPundit has already reached amongst Top 50 financial blogs world-wide. I have started this post to invite your comments on how do you like www.OptionPundit.net. I shall appreciate your feedback, comments, suggestions to make it even better. Pls use comments section to post your views.
Your site has been very helpful to me. I enjoy your ideas and have implemented some of them myself and rather effectively, too.
Your blog has also been helpful.
I’ve found your site very helpful and very informative.
I also like your strategy and trading concepts and i would like
to try your service once it’s open to new investors ???
I have thoroughly enjoyed the posts. It has definitely helped my trading and motivated me to look at many different option strategies.
Excellent site. You obviously put alot of work into it. There arent many decent option sites around.
Enjoy the site, keep up the good work!
queston for you, I played the GOOG 540 put calender spread idea but just now realized earnings are just before July expiration (7/17) therefore I am thinking will have to take profits now even though I was looking forward to holding it until expiration, athe earnings can move the stock too far away from the strike obviously potentially removing most of the profits even though if there were no earnings upcoming I would hold for sure.
What do you think?
Great site. I learned a lot from you and it inspired me to put in the hard work and become a better trader. You are not only very knowledgeable but also knew how to present your ideas in a way easily understandable to the readers. There aren’t that many sites that offer this level of quality education.
One of the more value-add blog around, rare find. Quality articles. Thanks.
Happy Trading & Keep Your Profit Rolling!
Great site, became a better trader.
It’s an Excellent site for income traders who wish to know more.
I personally learnt a lot and benefitted from your sharing.
Once in the site, I really feel very motivated to learn all the various spread strategies..
I’m definitely looking forward to learn more from your trades in future..
Profitable Trading !
One of the best around. Should be a daily read for everyone. I hope I added a little to your popularity.
Clean, clear and informative are my first impression about OP.
I hope to see more strategies in the future…
Keep up your good works.
Wow and thank you enormously for the very detailed post regarding the SHLD trade. I love how much information you share on the website, and it truly seems like you have a little community growing here. I would like to sincerely express my gratitude to you for not only sharing your knowledge, but also requiring that members realize there is ALWAYS risk present, even when several months of profitable trading is shown. This game is all about risk management and capital preservation.
I just wanted to share my thoughts w/you, and again to thank you for continuing to motivate me to learn as much as I can about this ever incredible market.
Great work! Very organised site and your income trades are very educational. I too believe that income trades are important and should form a good % of one’s trading portfolio.
I would like to try the newsletter whenever it reopens. I always favor writing contracts rather than buying.
Very helpful blog. I would say the best blog about options.
Thank you for that work!
Just found your site recently and have yet to explore it fully. Find it very informative and inspirational so far.
Excellent blog! Very educational & informative.
Appreciate all your efforts & great works all this while.
Your blog is really cool..For an option newbie like me , the blog and the Newsletter was quite helpful in understanding the basic nuances of Option strategies like Calendar Spreads and Iron Condor . I know there is still lots to explore ..But site like yours make this exploration a fun and an enjoyable experience…Thanks for the work..and keep the flow going . Am sure your list of admirers will only increase by time.
I have enjoyed your site and Newsletter immensely. I eagerly await the return of OPN. I check this home page everyday for updates and your posts. Keep up the profits!
Great job. I have been trading options for a decade now and still get a lot of new perspective from your web site.I would like to subscribe to get the actual trades. Can you please email me subscription details?
Thank you all for your kind words. Also glad to be part of another Top 100 list
Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog and you’re supporting comments. I hope to someday have a site that is as comprehensive as yours. If there is anything I can do to assist you in your blogging efforts, dont hesitate to ask.
I am a new reader checking your website for about a month. You are very nice to share your knowledge to other
people. Tried many option strategies for the last 3 years..always challenging..lost lot of money…controlling my emotions now for the
last 5 months..going slowly not jumping into every move which was my past mistake with no money management.
Now, I am concentrating only on calendars and cr.spreads which works for my style.
Your blog is well written and no BS. Keep up your good work!
I click on the ‘Register’ button under ‘Login and Subscribe’ section on left panel. And after which I got a username and password to log in.
Could you help advise what this username/password is used for at your site?
I seemed to be sign in to your sie’s Dashboard, but I’m not sure what the login is supposed to do. Appreciate you could check and advise.
Btw, I like your blog.
Thanks Level 123.
The registration is required to view “members only” posting, at times.
I, sometimes, also send trade alerts as well as heads-up to members. There is no particular frequency, it is only when I find something worth sharing.
Unless you receive an e-mail, there is no need to login.
I am the editor of a number of college and career based websites. We have been working very hard to become a great resource
for those interested in continuing their education online.
We recently discovered you and think our content could benefit your readers, and are interested in advertising on your site,
We’d like to create a custom ad for the page. Please contact me and I’ll send you some sample ads, and we can discuss terms and payment options.
I love your site! There is so much to learn from this site. The information is overwhelming for a newbie like me. Can you give me an advise on how a newbie like me can fully utilise a great site like this?
Great Stuff….this one stays on recommended and refferal list for times to come.
Great site I found it from a link on another blog. I had a couple of questions for you but couldn’t find your email address on this blog. Basically I wanted to know the best place to start for someone with very little knowledge about options? Basically I only know about buying and selling calls/puts.
You may write to me directly at OptionPundit(at)gmail.com
Check out’s OP’s toolbox, specially the toolbox sub category where you can find links to various websites/portal that provides information on option trading. Also look at the Chicago board of Exchange (CBOE) website for the explanation on options.
One done, then I shall highly recommend understanding greek i.e. delta, theta, gamma, vega etc. In OP’s toolbox, look for “CB Options Startegy Guide” to understand more about those.
Don’t sign-up for any seminars yet.
Once you have understood basic options, Greeks then head to “Options Strategy simulator”. Try simulating few strategies.
Once you are done, then open a “paper trading account”.
Don’t sign-up for any seminar yet.
Do paper trading for 2-3months. Learn from the mistakes. Keep a track of your questions and diagnose every trade.
Now sign-up for a seminar as you ready to take advantage of these costly seminars. You can then nail these “gurus” and get most benefit.
This process may take few months but it’s worth it. Market has been there, will be there to make money. There is no hurry.
Profitable trading, OP

It is always great to read blogs that are of common interest. There is so much to learn from each other. Trading is indeed a very exciting yet boring for it is sometimes difficult to get someone who shares the same passion to talk to. Great Blog. Cheers.
Ronald Lee, Street Smart Options
Excellent site – I find it to be very informative for people like me who are beginers@options.
Separately, by OP’s referral TOS offered me a flat rate which translated into direct savings of my transaction costs 🙂
