Option Boost Video Course

For just $199 you can have immediate access to over 10 hours of option trading videos. This course begins with the basic building blocks of how the option market works and builds upon this by teaching you step by step how to execute profitable option strategies. The part I liked the most was the Actionable Chart Setups for placing high-probability option trades. Other interesting sections of the course are Portfolio Hedging, Sector Rotation and Mean Reversion. Visit Option Boost for your copy now.

Option Pricing

There's lots of programs out there that will charge you a monthly fee for a calculator that prices up option contracts. Not here!

I've put together a little something in Microsoft Excel that just does this, plus prices up all of the Option Greeks.
