This is what William Chetwall replied back to one of our emails when you join our newsletter. I replied to William telling him this, “There has never been a better time for an individual investors to outperform the best hedge fund managers.”
I’ll tell you exactly why.
If there was ever a time to succeed in the market, the time is now. With the advent of electronic trading, the playing field has been completely leveled between you and professional traders. You now have access to the same tools, platforms, data feeds, information, and technology as they do.
You are not working for a fund with restrictive guidelines. You are working for yourself and likely your family. Making consistent returns in the market allows you to retire earlier, take more vacations, have more time to spend with the family, and enjoy the finer things in life. OptionSIZZLE’s premium option trading service and guidance will empower you to become a profitable, confident, and knowledgeable option trader.
Maybe, what you need is a mentor to show you the way
My name is Joshua Belanger and I am the founder of OptionSIZZLE.com and the professional trader behind the service. I started my career on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and held various positions in the financial industry. OptionSIZZLE.com was launched in October 2008 to direct people, like you, to take control of your investments.
Since starting OptionSIZZLE.com, both the company and I have been featured and quoted in:
Before we get into the details, envision this very typical morning for an individual investor:
The opening bell rings and you are poised at the computer with a list of great trade ideas that you spent a lot of time researching. The closing bell rings. What happened?
You probably watched candles forming and multiple charts moving all day long, but did nothing, or worse, did precisely the wrong thing.
Maybe, you’ve earned steady profit each week and today’s bad trade wiped out months’ worth of hard work .
Maybe, you just sat paralyzed by fear of losing money and exited a winning trade too early or watched as a losing trade went even lower.
I’ve worked with hundreds of traders and investors and I have find that the majority fail for the following reasons:
If you can identify with the any of the above items and are struggling with your personal trading, our premium service is the perfect solution for you.
How are you going to do to separate yourself from the majority of traders that fail? Why are you struggling on your own when you can have a coach and be part of a community? I will save you time and money in research and scanning for ideas. I will show you where the trades are and how to make them. I will guide you and hold you accountable. In the end, you will achieve greater confidence to take those great trades you have been missing.
I have helped many traders over the last four years through my premium option trading service. My goal is to empower people like you to make money in the market, achieve financial success, and build confidence in yourself. The best part is that my system that outperformed the S&P 500 since it became public.
I invest a significant amount of time and money in researching and creating trade ideas. In fact, I spend nearly $500 each month for proprietary data and exclusive research. It is what I do for a living; I eat, sleep, and breathe the market. Anyone can pay to get the same information, but do you have the time and resources to analyze it? What are your trading losses really costing you in money and stress? How much is it worth to you to be able to look over the shoulder of a professional and learn by mimicking his actual trades?

That is a famous Ben Franklin quote and he knew that the key to success is hands-on involvement.
This service is like a private mentorship. While a lot of other services register anyone who is willing to open their wallet and pay the dues, we limit our service to a select group of traders who are serious about advancing their skill set and who have the necessary capital to put on advanced trading strategies.
My goal is to make your investment in this service pay for itself. If you are diligent in your desire to learn, then you should realize even greater returns in yourself and your account.
The reason for the select group has to do with option liquidity. If too many traders are going after the same trade, there could be slippage, wider spreads, or the price of the option moves too quickly. My edge comes from tracking the giants in the options market; I don’t want to be the giant.
I know because I’ve done it and have mentored others to do so for the last four years. Mentorship is more than providing some reading material and answering a few questions. It is an ongoing relationship over the course of a year that is designed to be a catalyst for change and to challenge you.
There is an old adage that says if you think education is expensive, try ignorance. Is your trading success worth $6.57 day? That is the cost of OptionSIZZLE’s Premium for a year’s investment.
You have a full thirty days to test drive OptionSIZZLE premium and experience the power that comes from our elite guidance and research. Even though we could ask for year’s worth of dues in advance, we don’t. We’ve made it so you can pay on a recurring quarterly billing cycle.
Unlike other services, we actually care about your success. We can provide the finest guidance, research, and ideas, but we count on you to take action to achieve results. If you ask for a refund, then we are going to require that you show that you have put in the effort.
All you need to do is provide a log from a simulated or paper account showing that you are taking action on trade alerts. If you are trying to learn and find it is just not for you, then we let you off the hook. All I ask is that you please don’t waste my time and take away from serious traders if you are not going to put in an honest effort.
As a recent member I have to say I’m extremely pleased with the service. Most of the trades provided from the site have ended up in profit, ranging from 30 – 110%. But the greatest take away from the service is the trading psychology and trading tactics that Josh shares to educate and help the average Joe to become better traders.
Josh provides more of a personal touch where you can ask him any question at any time and you can rest assure that he’ll provide you with an answer. It’s a wonderful service for all levels of traders and would highly recommend it.
I wanted to take this opportunity and let you know what a valuable asset you and your service is. I think I have known your site and you since the beginning and I have to say it has been very exciting to see your company grow along with me. No one is as forthcoming and so open to discussing the options selections as you are. You are always there to ask anything to and you never shy away from it. Most important thing about your service is that I am able to learn something new every day. Keep up the good work and good looking out for the little guy.
What is unusual option activity or following the giants mean?
The option market in more transparent than the stock market. When you buy a call or put option contract, you have an expectation of price direction. What I look for in the option market is the big players or giants, which are hedge funds and institutions with lots of money for research and for putting into trades. They buy large amounts of call or put contracts aggressively when a stock is in play.
With data I receive from my paid data provider, I can track when hedge funds, institutions or insiders are buying or selling option contracts. These groups buy options in large blocks of hundreds or thousands of contracts which triggers an alert that something unusual may be in the pipeline. The “giants” try to get into option contracts in size before the market moving news hits the street.
At OptionSIZZLE, we research and filter out all the noise with our expertise to issue real-time, actionable trade alerts describing exactly how to follow their footsteps. Armed with this valuable information, you gain an edge and get on the right side of the trade.
How much capital do I need to effectively utilize the service?
The minimum account requirement you need to effectively use our service is $15,000. This amount of capital will allow you to execute some of the more complex strategies that we use. There are other products offered by OptionSIZZLE for trading smaller accounts.
What type of option strategies do you use?
The strategies range from simple purchase of calls and puts to ratio spreads, calendar spreads, butterfly spreads and vertical spreads.
The various strategies provide a lot of opportunities to create profitable trades putting the odds in my favor of having a successful trade.
How many trades are issued each week?
I try to get three specific trades out each week. It varies during certain times in the market. For instance, during earnings season I tend to put on more trades. I look for quality trades meeting my criteria, not quantity.
What is your average time in a trade?
1-7 days is the average time in a trade. I don’t like to be in the market on longer term time frames. My success has been able to catch directional moves when they happen and not have to sit in a position waiting.
