To a beginner, the world of options trading can be very complicated, with many moving parts. There are numerous terms to become aware of. However, if you focus too much on learning exactly what every term means, your head might spin. That’s why we tried to simplify things in our options trading courses.

Focusing on the big picture and the overall concept with options is important rather than focusing too hard on what every term means. In this case, each term is a piece that completes the overall puzzle, but it’s more important to see how the big picture comes together when trading options. The puzzle pieces will come together the more that you focus on the overall concept with options and get through learning all the options and training terminology.

That’s a question that many new traders ask. They seem so complicated, so why do it? Well, there are several different reasons why people trade options. One is to hedge against existing positions in their portfolio. Suppose your portfolio is mostly bullish, and the market turns bearish. In that case, many traders will take bearish options positions to hedge against the markets and capitalize without necessarily having to sell their current positions. Another tactic traders employ is to sell covered calls.

Another reason people trade options is for speculation. Many traders buy and sell options contracts purely for profit. They are good technical chartists, so they trade options contracts for profit. Trading options allow you to profit whether the market is bullish, bearish, or trades sideways. Credit spreads and iron condors are good strategies when the markets are range-bound. We will teach you those strategies in our options course.

More Frequently Asked Questions

A $25,000 minimum requirement for day trading options is called the PDT rule. If you want to swing trade options, there aren’t any minimum capital requirements.

Learning options trading typically takes six months to a year, but these results are unique. Most options traders lose money due to their risky nature and new traders needing to understand how they work.

The safest option strategy is credit spreads. It involves the combination of selling a call and a put. Options sellers collect a premium, while options buyers pay a debit.

As others have described it, Bullish Bears is a community. All sorts of people and experience levels sharing their knowledge and encouraging one another. The BB teachers / contributors each have instruction multiple times per week, and the livestreams are recorded and kept for review and taking more notes later. Overall this is the best value I have seen online. This is not a signal pushing, self-profiting pump-n-dump type of group, though there are useful signals. Bullish Bears goal is to teach you how to see your own entries, make your own decisions, and be a successful trader. I have immensely enjoyed my time with them and am looking forward to more.

The Bullish Bears Community sets the Gold Standard for all online financial educational services. They have hours and hours of the best video training available anywhere. Actual videos of live online trading concepts recorded in real time by EXPERTS. The absolute highest level of knowledge and experience I have ever encountered. They have daily LIVE chat rooms where you can observe real traders and look over their shoulder as they teach you how they look for trade setups for options, stocks or futures. They share every detail of the trade setups and why they are taking a trade at any given level. You will learn how to acquire the skills to trade on your own and not be dependent on any "guru". Wouldn't you rather KNOW how to trade rather than to PAY someone who is here today and gone tomorrow (with your money) to BS you. You can look at fake photos of their Learjet, Lamborgini and Yacht OR do it the right way and actually LEARN how to do it yourself.

First of all thank you to the BB Team for the Virtual New Year's party last night going into the New Year. I would like to wish the BB Team and all the members a very Happy New Year 2022. I've been a member for the past few years and learned a lot from their mentoring and daily sessions as well as a vast treasure trove of information about trading the markets. Normally the information that is available here would be definitely in the upwards of thousands of dollars. The membership more than pays for itself. They stand by their motto "Pay it forward". I've upgraded my annual membership to their Lifetime membership because of the value it provides and they keep it more interesting. All the best to the BB team.
I joined the Bullish Bears in May 2021 because someone shared a YouTube video of a trading technique I was interested in learning since I was struggling learning it from somewhere else. Once I joined the community, there were even more learning opportunities from the video library, the live streaming, the BB Team along with the BB community. Whether your are a novice or experienced trader, there is a place for you at the Bullish Bears.

This is truly a team of people dedicated to helping their members understand and apply that level of understanding in the market. They are extremely interactive with their members. They have personally taken time to explain concepts to me over and over again until I actually understood the material. What I enjoy most; you are not learning just one system, you are learning systems and concepts to build your own way of thinking and trading! I'm truly grateful to Bullish Bears.


If you’ve looked for trading education elsewhere then you’ll notice that it can be very costly.

We are opposed to charging ridiculous amounts to access experience and quality information. 

That being said, our website is a great resource for traders or investors of all levels to learn about day trading stocks, futures, and options. Swing trading too! 

On our site, you will find thousands of dollars worth of free online trading courses, tutorials, and reviews.

We put all of the tools available to traders to the test and give you first-hand experience in stock trading you won’t find elsewhere.

Our content is packed with the essential knowledge that’s needed to help you to become a successful trader.

It’s important to treat day trading stocks, options, futures, and swing trading like you would with getting a professional degree, a new trade, or starting any new career.

Invest the proper time into your Trading Education and don’t try to run before you learn to crawl. Trading stocks is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s not gambling either, though there are people who treat it this way. Don’t be that person!
