Forward Testing Track Record

Long History Of Trading Success

SJ Options has been teaching by example for nearly a decade already.  Clients learn to recognize when to trade, when not to, and most importantly, how to design effective and low-risk options strategies.

SJ Options brought higher order Greeks education to the entire industry.  Before us, nobody knew what they were.  We are still the leaders in teaching them.  Only through us will you learn to manage first-order Greeks by higher order Greeks.

We are proud of what we do because we know we are helping traders to profit with options safely, even over periods of global market turmoil, when option trading is the most difficult of all.

Our Philosophy

The SJ Options Method™ is founded on minimizing risk while maximizing both probabilities and returns. Over the years we’ve perfected our techniques to the highest degree. We are the preferred options course for risk-averse option traders.

Controlled Risk

A benefit to trading the SJ Options way is that losses are under your control.  Our trades do not lose often, but when they do, they are usually under 6%.  It’s not uncommon for popular options strategies, such as weekly credit spreads and short strangles, to incur extreme losses that take from years to recover from.

We focus on low-risk, high-reward trading.  If you have exhausted the low-reward, high-risk trading concept, then let us show you the complete opposite, and even though our risk is controlled, our true POP is actually higher than popular methods in most cases.

Margin T (Standard) margin is calculated by the maximum risk of the trade. Any trades that involve naked positions simulate Margin T calculations using a proprietary formula. Customer Portfolio Margin (CPM) margins are calculated using the industry standard TIMS +/- 10% risk array provided by the OCC. Any CPM trades that state “Infinite” in the return column mean there was no risk within the TIMS model, so return could not be calculated. Both gains and losses for CPM accounts will be exaggerated due to higher leverage given on CPM accounts.  Returns are based on final margins of each trade.
