John Carter - Options

For most investors and traders, options are intriguing, but the complexity deters most from ever attempting to utilize them in their portfolio…and we think that's a very BIG mistake. Options give the smaller investor the leverage to grow even the smallest account rapidly, without the risk of naked exposure, as with futures.

Simpler Options was founded by industry veteran John F. Carter, author of the best-selling book Mastering the Trade. John is most well-known for his aggressive style, huge trades (like the one-day, $1,000,000 TSLA trade), and his ability to effortlessly pull massive profits out of the markets with his simple to follow strategies.

So, to put it simply, our goal at Simpler Options is not to teach you how to be a stock broker. Our goal is to teach you how to consistently make money in the markets.
