Simply put, Mark Sebastian is an options trading wizard. With an intimate knowledge of the VIX and volatility in general, Mark has the ability to explain seemingly complex subjects in a way that traders can understand and learn from.

In short, he is the go-to guy when it comes to volatility and options trading - including for none other than Jim Cramer.

A well-groomed, blue-blooded so-and-so wearing a bespoke suit and a crisp collar, sporting a Rolex and carrying a briefcase worth more than your car.

In other words, you think of the OPPOSITE of Kenny Glick. For those who’ve never had the pleasure of seeing Kenny in action, live-trading stocks based on their Volume-Weighted Average Price (otherwise known as VWAP, the lifeblood of his methodology)

Tom Gentile is known as America’s #1 Pattern Trader. But really, he’s so much more than that. Tom wasn’t always so successful. Thirty years ago, he was just a kid working 60 hours a week at Home Depot, making the same amount every hour no matter how hard he worked. It’s a familiar story. But it jump started Tom to do something different. That’s when his life really began to change. Tom began his career by studying the ins and outs of options trading every single night in his parent’s basement back in 1986. Years later, he had built one of the largest financial tech companies showing people how to trade. It was called Optionetics, and it quickly established a stellar reputation in the field of options education. In 2009, Tom sold Optionetics to one of the largest discount brokers in the world for millions of dollars. Since then, he has dedicated his career to teaching people how to trade. Tom has taught over 300,000 traders his option trading secrets in a variety of settings, including seminars, workshops, and sponsored events like The Money Show. He’s also a bestselling author of eight books and training courses. Tom’s personal mission in life is to show people like you everything he’s learned in his 30 years of trading. He wants you to break out of the grueling nine-to-five cycle and achieve the abundant life you deserve.
