Ron is extremely knowledgeable in how options behave and in translating that “know how” in creating very unique and profitable trades. In my opinion, one of his best traits is how he clearly communicates the setup and management of his trades and more importantly the reasoning behind why they work.
Although there are many sites out there promising to make you rich in a few short weeks, or trying to sell you their latest “holy grail” indicator, the reality is that trading is tough.
It’s claimed that 90% of new traders will lose most of their trading accounts within the first few months of trading live positions.

Just a quick Thank You to Ron Bertino … the man is a genius… but here are my 2 cents… today was a $19,000 profit as I closed several positions… for the last 30 days it’s close to $60,000 in profits on about $650,000 in open positions. I would not be comfortable with that amount of risk without the benefit of Ron Bertino’s excellent Hedge/Income trades. If you are not taking advantage of his expertise then you are missing … or … more accurately… risking too much!
With Ron’s hedges I have a current max loss of 17%, if the market dropped by 10% – 20%. That’s a manageable loss in the event of a sudden correction. In the event of a greater than 20% crash I am 100% hedged and could actually MAKE a profit!
The way I manage the hedges is clearly wrong and could be greatly improved but… the total cost of the hedge is under $25 per month for each $10,000 at risk.
If you want to make a living trading this crazy market and have less stress worrying about a correction or Black Swan event, then you need to learn what Ron is sharing. Like I said, he is a genius.
So THANK YOU RON BERTINO for all you do!
Ron is probably one of the best traders and teachers I have met who takes complex ideas and turns them into simple explanations…this is very hard to do.
Ron and his Space Trip Trade (STT) have made a significant impact on the level of safety I feel trading monthly income strategies. I routinely trade at the money structures and have found myself frequently tested by adverse market moves over the past year. I have traded five live expiration cycles of STT positions to date and can say with confidence that the peace of mind combined with the positive expectancy make this a trade than I plan to use as the core of my options portfolio well into the future. The development of the STT is a significant accomplishment and one that I believe marks just the beginning of Ron’s contribution to both options theory and practice. Well done!
Ron, I want to say thank-you for the terrific innovation of the STT and variants. I’ve now spent some time with the Jan version in the simulator, and it’s just an amazing way to leverage portfolio margin, creating a trade that only uses $375 margin to get say, a $409 expiration profit and still have a hedge down at SPX 2000. Really extraordinary.
I’ve received many valuable trading insights from Ron Bertino. His understanding of successful trading strategies and disciplines is both deep and broad at the same time. Options trading is a unique investment sector and requires quantitative as well as conceptual understanding to become consistently profitable. Ron is able to describe complex and interrelated ideas in a clear and simple manner.
He also digs deeply into the concepts to get a handle on the correlations between price, Greeks and trade structures. I highly recommend your attention to his trading thought processes and market wisdom.
