Trading options successfully requires good discipline and a keen knowledge of how these high-potential, but often complex markets, really work. The best source for gaining knowledge is from trading veterans - the “in-the-trenches” experts who have been through many market cycles and virtually any scenario you could imagine. No one fits the bill better than Len Yates, a master of options analytics and founder of the premiere options software, OptionVue Systems.
