A Teenager's Perspective on Trading Options -- Anish & Akul Shourie -- Motivated Teenagers

Hear how two teenage brothers and SVOG associates have learned to generate consistent returns from their trading. They developed their interest in trading through daily Investopedia reading and watching the Nightly Business Report with their father. They have been trading options for the past three years.


Evolution of a Butterfly Trader -- John Chernicky -- Private Trader

John discuss his evolution as a butterfly trader and present how he is currently trading them. John has been trading different butterfly structures for a few years now. In the spring of 2016 he started trading exclusively his version of a BWB trade that is called the "Road Trip Trade". That has worked out well for him (good returns and high win rate). However, since that initial start, he has evolved the way he trades BWBs. In recent months, in an attempt to simplify his trading, he has moved to a more systematic way of trading BWBs using concepts of a recently introduced BWB trading system called Netzero.
