Ron looks beyond the conventional wisdom of many aspects of options trading. He has a knack for identifying concepts that at first glance seem to be straightforward, and yet often prove to be more nuanced when analyzed in greater detail. He creates insightful presentations that clearly explain these key issues, and more importantly, their sometimes counterintuitive impact on common options trading strategies. This deeper level of analysis often determines whether or not a particular strategy actually has a definable “edge.” Ron also has a thorough understanding of the most popular brokerage trading platforms and options trading software applications currently available (i.e., ThinkorSwim, OptionVue, Option Net Explorer), as well as the inherent idiosyncrasies of the greeks generated by them.
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.

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.
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.
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!
I was fortunate enough to not fall into the traps that a lot of newbies fall for, in part due to Ron’s videos and group chat discussions. His trade setups such as STTs are very creative and his explanations are very clear. Ron’s weighted vega presentation was certainly was very educational and it cleared (via historical trades) a lot of the common misconceptions. He also mentioned a kite adjustment which saved me some pain. I would highly recommend Ron as a mentor as there’s a wealth of knowledge to extract from him.
