MTM Student Testimonials

Hear what our options coaching students have to say...

“Thanks to Dan and John for all of their excellent instruction. I am a better and smarter trader because of the education I have received from MTM."

-Chris, IL

“My favorite trade of the week was protecting my FB shares and still making money. John always recommended that I protect or play shares in more than one way. I let 33% ride. I sold a 170 call for $8 and bought a 150 put for about $1.50. When the market opened, I bought back the call on 1/3 of shares for an options profit of $2. I still have 1/3 covered and will probably roll. So I captured most of the upside of FB but felt protected quite a bit on the downside. Maybe it doesn't always work like this but when it does, it's nice. Benefit of one on one."

-Mark, PA

“I closed the position out yesterday and netted $461.00… Thanks, again, for what you give each morning. Otherwise I would have abandoned options in frustration and fallen back to my comfort zone in stocks."

-Richard, MA

“I got filled yesterday on your AMZN call credit spread idea from class yesterday, at the ask, no chasing the price, and closed this morning for a nice profit, not max but hit my planned target. Thanks for the lone green trade that mitigated my sea of red!"

-Blair, Canada

“I'm so glad I found you and John. You and John teach me how to trade options in any environment. But even more than that John's class every morning teaches me how to look for trades and how to manage them once they are on and you refine my knowledge with the Thursday afternoon webinars. You are so supportive of my journey to get to my long term trading goals and I can't begin to thank you enough for that. The education and the support that you and John give is awesome."

-Cat, MO

“I haven’t been able to attend the class or trade much lately, but I was able to make a successful swing trade on SLB recently. I used the Macrograph chart, TAP and range information, along with instructions from you and John Kmiecik on entering and exiting a trade. Missed the high today but was still able close it out for a nice profit before it dropped. I’ve got a lot more to learn."

-Joe, NY

“The recent training has been very helpful, especially with the market’s recent correction... This is the most useful trading site/group I have found."

-Rick, TX

“I've been with the MTM Family for a while now and Portland was my first in person event. Oh boy what excitement for me, for the first time meeting Dan, Market Maker, somebody who we are against every time when making a trade. John and Dan are truly exceptional. They really care about you learning, understanding and above all making sure you keep your profits. Oftentimes I heard from them 'Nobody ever went broke taking a profit.' Every time I thought in my head to be greedy, I could hear John screaming at me... Big thank you to both of them, as without them I wouldn't be here. There is still a lot for me to learn from both of them and looking forward to the next live event."

-Bosa, CA

“My son and I have had the pleasure of attending three of the four annual options retreats hosted by MTM to date. The MTM Options Retreats are a great venue for joining options traders from across the country for practical, real-life and in-person training, coaching and dialogue with two of the leading options trainers and mentors in the industry. An added benefit of the retreat is the non-stop exchange of ideas, learnings and questions, outside the classroom, from like-minded options traders. The locations for the events are like 'Icing on the cake' as we've started tacking on some vacation time in front of the retreat as well. We are looking forward to this year’s session and already have the dates blocked in our calendars."

-Jerry, TX

“Thanks for pounding the 'take your profits' lesson into my thick skull. Keep pounding please. Took profits on a number of positions earlier this week, including yesterday - these would not have been profits by this afternoon if I hadn't taken profits. Man, I am very, very grateful for your insight and guidance!"

-Blair, Canada

“I found the retreats to be very beneficial. (I have attended more than one.) There is in depth information and it really helps to have access to Dan and John for answering specific questions. Plus, it's just fun being around like minded traders for sharing strategies and experiences. A retreat goes way beyond regular webinars in their depth and focus. Always well worth it! Thanks for all you guys do to help us be Market Takers!"

-Bill, FL

“The retreat in Portland was excellent. The classes were very informative and the retreat was a perfect environment for asking questions. I had several great discussions with the other traders there and it was a very memorable vacation through wine country on the return trip. The Telluride and Portland retreats both exceeded expectations and I am looking forward to this year's retreat."

-Tom, CA

“Excellent seminar for three reasons. First, Market [Taker] teaches a practical, high probability Options techniques. Secondly, the participants share their market insights and give you new perspectives. Third, the retreat is a lot of fun. Options investing is serious. However,  Market Taker educates you but makes it fun!"

-Mark, PA

“Just want to say big, big thank you, the GC has been awesome, and I have totally recovered my account, and more. Been great trading the past 2 weeks."

-James, Spain

“I am forever indebted to you for convincing me to sign up for 1-1 and John K for the 1-1 training. When I submitted the 1st draft of my trading plan for review, I had absolutely no idea what a credit spread or debit spread or calendar or diagonal even was, aside from reading some generic info in a strategy guide. I left those sections of my trading plan blank / TBD. When I updated the plan for final review / comments, I realized I actually LEARNED this stuff. I could analyze any position based on the Greeks before entering. I could hypothetically run through the what-ifs - what if the stock dropped X, what would my position be now… If knowledge is power as they say, MTM has given me the power to really own my trading, feeling confident in knowing the why behind my trading decisions. Thanks!"

-Jeff, TX

“I’m so thankful for you and John. Since I’ve signed on with MTM, it's been a dramatically positive sea change in my trading."

-Deborah, Canada

“Between you, John K. and John S., you have a star studded lineup in tact, that's for sure!!!!!"

-Dave, NY

“I’ve been putting some of what we’ve talked about in our last one on one class to work and it’s literally paid off handsomely."

-Joe, NY
 

"I've been listening to class and enjoying them. It makes me place more winning trades. Lol. For real, I have played a bunch of stuff from class and most were winners. Not just techniques but other stocks. My UNH is up $2,500. Had a good day yesterday while having the Fewest number of contracts on but stuff soared."

-Mark, PA 
 

"Your program is excellent! Exactly what I hoped it would be."

-Steve, AZ

"I am extremely appreciative of the knowledge and wisdom I have acquired from MarketTaker, not to mention the ability to add a couple thousand on average to my monthly cash flow!"

-Doug, Jupiter, FL

"I am a new subscriber, in my 2nd month. I get a lot out of the coaching sessions, learning lots. You are indeed a very good coach, I like your style."

-Mick, Canada

"Thank you John and Dan for your guidance with your help I am on a two week eight straight win streak. Bringing an annualized return of over 185% don't expect to bat 1000 forever but not a bad looking snapshot of what these strategies can do. When combined with wise loss management."

-Danny, TX

"I closed the SPX trade that I mentioned on the group coaching class today. I was tempted to grind it out, but since I have have taken your class I have left trades earlier (especially losers). However, it was hard to buy back a $2,400 short position:). Since your class, I exited winners earlier. This reduces risk but also has allowed me to put the capital to work on a fresh trade. I made over $11,000 on the SPX spread of which 60% is treated as long term gains. The tax savings are huge versus SPY. I believe your class has helped me be more capital efficient, but also it has allowed me to have lower risk! Thanks for your mentoring!!!"

-Mark, PA

"Also, thanks for everything you offer from MTM. Having gone to a few of the group sessions now, I am really starting to see the value of John's sessions in conjunction with what I am learning from you every week. You are giving me the framework, and John puts the meat on the bones. 1-on-1 coaching is the best decision I could have made at this junction in my trading education."

-Regina, WY

"I have found Dan Passarelli and John Kmiecik to be very honest and upfront. They really trade, and they do a great job of teaching in a way that is easily accessible. They care about their students and are constantly finding ways to help them to become better traders..."[...More]

-Pastor Rick Christy, MI

"Closed out a NFLX Bull Put Spread that you discussed last Tuesday. Made enough to cover the fee for the group coaching sessions. Thanks for providing these sessions. I am learning a ton."

-Kevin, Bentonville, AR

"Thank you for some great trades….FDX, AAPL, etc.!!!!!   Remember that mess I had w/ Googl? I was going to lose $1900, but with your assistance, I made adjustments and made a profit of $700 instead...Thanks! The GILD butterfly, the FB straddle, AAPL, SPY, MMM, etc., etc., were all excellent trading ideas from you that I recently made excellent money trading…..thanks! Honestly…I love your service and hearing your insights and ideas every day."

-Debi, Brentwood, CA

"By the way our little discussion on IBM and red bar ignored candles the other day convinced me to close out my position on IBM with a nice little profit."

-Ted, Montgomery, TX 

"John I want to Thank You and let you know how much I am enjoying the meetings. You have opened my eyes to several new ideas and I have made some hopefully good trades. I am very conservative so I will go out a little past some the trades you point out. I still have alot to learn on the greeks but it is beginning to make more sense to me."

-Jack, Phoenix, AZ 

"I am so much more balanced in my trades now. I know it is early, but already compared to last year, there is no comparison. My trading/management plan has made a HUGE difference. Thanks again my friend!!"

-Al, Topeka, KS

"I do wish to express my gratitude to you and Dan. I am feeling much more confident trading. Placed my first double calendar today. The value of the coaching, mentoring, and videos has become increasingly apparent to me as time goes by. I took a few months “off” because of other commitments. Now, going through the video archives a second time, and reviewing your daily series when I get home at night, it’s all finally starting to “click”. I also needed to learn to keep it simple. It’s really not as terribly difficult as it initially appears."

-Jeff, Greeley, CO

"I would just like to say taking the Market Taker's online courses are the best thing I've ever done in pursuit of being a professional options trader. Dan is a superior options master as well as an excellent teacher."

-William, Monroe Township, NJ

"The AAPL trade is nice, Accenture and Conagra, too. Following you, I'm beginning to appreciate how valuable a watch list of actively traded stocks is for swing trading."

-Fred, Durham, NC

"I feel extremely optimistic about this daily call. I have been doing some option trading and equity trading for a few years but have been very erratic in results. Already what I have heard and learned from just 2 calls is going to help."

-John, Summerville, SC  

"We went over a calendar spread on FFIV… I bought the Aug (standard expiry) and sold the Jul 25 112 strike weekly at $1.08. I got out on the 24th, day after earnings, for $1.60. Not a bad trade, $.52 on a max loss of $1.08. Thanks for your continued support and encouragement." 

-Gerry, Elmhurst, IL

"I just want to take a moment to tell you that I really appreciate your help. I've been around the block a few times and I firmly believe you are that most positive and honest of all the professionals. It's been a couple of hard years for me but your experience and willingness to help is making a difference. thank you. A 70 year old Marine."

-Wayne, Palm Beach Gardens, FL

“...I owe much of the success that I've had in options to your teaching and mentoring. Aside from your clear teaching style, your emphasis on risk and money management is what separates you from the rest.”

-Jeff, Highland Park, IL
