Game Changing Content
I stumbled on Option Alpha by chance while searching for an option strategy terminology. It has stopped my dead in my path, which was leading to total loss. Since discovering option alpha I have recommitted myself to learning options trading over again. It is going to be time consuming, but the alternative is not an option. The content offered on the site and in this blog is overwhelmingly helpful, and free. That is a game changer. Over the past 15 years, I have spent thousands of dollars on courses and mentorship, they all over-promised. Option Alpha is by far the most comprehensive of any option course I have ever taken. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wishes to learn about option trading.

Perfect for the first time investor
I’m new...wet behind the ears kind of new...to the entire business of trading. I’ve been binging podcasts since early 21 trying to catch up and learn. What I like, is that Kirk never assumes too much and takes his time as a teacher to make sure people are on board with what he is trying to teach. He is patient and detailed and that makes a difference for a new chap like me trying to figure it all out. Thanks, Kirk, and keep up the great work. ~ Kevin

Wonderful Options Training
This is an amazing podcast series. I am a newbie and it is not hard to get lost in the jungle of confusing training and get rich quick scams. This podcast has allowed me to get the comfort to commit myself over the longer term training. Kirk’s philosophy is easy to follow, realistic and he guides you every step of the way. I have not fully cought up, but I look forward to finishing my training and invest my time and resources with Option Alpha as I continue to grow my knowledge and experience. Thank you, Kirk! You are helping me realize my financial dreams! I look forward to more content and knowledge from you.

Best in Town!
I am not writing this review lightly, Markets ate already complicated ,honestly, so far, I never seen or heard any show someone breaking down options into a Kindergartner level - for FREE! I spent lot of money on so called Gurus, I strongly believe he’s THE guy! Thanks Kirk, I greatly appreciate all the time you took to create all the great content - for free! God Bless!!

Exceptional content worth your time
Option Alpha provides great content to take a trader from novice to thoroughly educated in the sphere of options. This is absolutely not a get rich quick scheme but a reasoned, principled, systematic approach to employing options trading as an individual investor. I equate trading options to flying an airplane - it’s all about managing calculated risks. If you don’t know what you’re doing and you jump right in and think you’re going to fly, it’ll end in disaster. But take the time to learn, study, and understand your risks, and even if something goes not as planned , you’ll end up safely on the ground.

Another great show
Kirk, I just listened to show 130, quick tips for smoother execution. Very insightful and appreciate the advice. Definitely some small details I didn’t realize before. And the devil truly is in the details at times.Thanks MATTHEW from San Diego

OA
I knew I wanted to learn options trading for a few years, but it was intimidating to get started. I read books and watched videos but all I ever heard was how risky options are. Then I discovered Option Alpha. Between the website and the podcast I really learned how to get involved with options safely. OA gave me the confidence to get started, and I’ve never looked back. While I don’t trade the same way as OA, the fundamentals that he teaches is the backbone of my trading strategy and it’s worked out well for me for a long while now. Learning risk management, trade allocation, how to adjust, the importance of selling options, the importance of making lots of high probability trades, and how to manage all of the stress of the trade has been priceless to me. The tools OA gives will help get you through whatever you may face. Thanks PP

Highly recommend if you want to make consistent income trading options
I am new to options trading. I encountered OptionAlpha by watching some YouTube videos online about making high probability option trades. I eventually got hooked into OptionAlpha including their podcasts because they offer so much free content online about options. I have not found this much free content on any other site. They are incredibly generous to be doing this. I feel like Kirk and the OptionAlpha team genuinely want to help new traders like me. Kirk seems to always teach concepts in a way that makes it seem so simple and easy to follow even for a new trader like me. I eventually purchased their lifetime elite membership and I don’t regret it one bit. I now have access to even more information that you just won’t find anywhere else. I’m already making enough money with option trades to cover part of the cost and will probably cover it all within the next month! OptionAlpha taught me the importance of always keeping position sizes small no matter what. They taught me the importance of being consistent and mechanical in your trading. They taught me the importance of beta weighting your portfolio. And so much more. You will make steady and consistent income using their philosophy.

The Best
Everything I know about options I learned from Kirk. Simply the best teacher out there, I highly recommend this podcast if you're serious about options trading.
Creeper21
Most insightful, grounded options podcast out there
Kirk, just want to thank you for your guidance and insight over the years. Been learning for nearly two years now, bouncing around between and John Carter’s means methodologies while trying to formulate a trade plan of my own. Your episode on biases, I think it was 190, was incredible. Feel like you took some notes from Thinking Fast and Slow there, and your content was so applicable. Can’t wait for your auto trading platform. Keep it up brother.

Learned a lot.
Really have learned a lot. Had my senior economics class listen to “the zillion ways you can save money to invest” podcast. Don’t buy stupid stuff seemed to strike a cord with them. Thanks man.

Trash he doesn’t make money
This guy talks about his tactics but he doesn’t make money that’s a guarantee he only make money from his trash website and he tried to lure you in with his features but they don’t actually help you at trading. Save your time and money. Go watch theta gang podcast by joonie. He also buys his reviews by the way!
hello#q
Excellent educator
Very clear, understandable explanations. Excellent podcast for anyone trying to understand options. A+.

Just Getting Started
This is an excellent podcast to educate yourself on the mystical world of options trading. I’m still learning. I strongly recommend this podcast to help you get started.

Hands down the best option trading podcast!
Kirk's podcast and the optionalpha.com training videos are by far the best option trading training out there. It is without exaggeration that I can say that I owe my successful option trading efforts to him. His free training courses cover everything you need to know about options and the podcast keeps you up to date and informed.

Amazing
Being trading for a month and surprised how much you can learn from Kirk; he has the skills to show how the stock market works in a way that anybody can understand and most of all can apply. Thank you man, keep the good work.

Best Options Trading Podcast, Ever!
Been trading options for 10 years, and I’m still learning NEW things from this podcast. All of this for FREE? Absolutely AMAZING!

Well reasoned approach to option investing
I've watched a lot of hype videos on YouTube regarding the "amazing" amount of money that can be made in options. Many are a lot of hot air. However, Kirk and his team have put together a well reasoned platform of tools and education that don't hype option trading but rather have a relentless focus on helping me learn how to do it. Facts, actual live trades, insights, life ideas, commitment to members, and being genuine are all factors that make this approach to learning successful.

One of the best
I found Kirk’s show when looking for options podcasts and thought I’d give it a try. Wow! One of the best shows out there. Geared toward options education with research to back it up, it’s focused on teaching you how to be a better trader. Every show I’ve listened to so far has provided valuable, thought-provoking information that I can apply to my options trading. And not just for beginners either. Kirk takes the time to explain everything thoroughly and doesn’t worry about how long his podcast runs. If you’re serious about your options education, this is definitely a show for you!

Beginner or Pro-Good mix of basics and strategies
Been listening to him podcast for 6mth. Kurts podcast offers insightful mix of basics and strategies for beginners or the seasoned pro. Love how he explains the “why” and rationales of particular strategy.

Ivy League Options Education!
Best education series I have ever experienced. Kirk is an outstanding teacher and his 'humanity' makes his education a personal experience - I feel like I know him. Recommend listening to these casts from the start and follow along on the Option Alpha site show notes.

BLown away
If you have been looking for real option education. Option alpha is where its at. No more long days of reading through the options as a strategic investment textbook which explains how each strategy works very simplistically but fails to bring any reality to the trades. No more getting lost listening to other option shows which are way to far ahead with the greeks to make any sense. Kirk does an amazing job holding your hand taking you through the basics with a strong foundation and then quickly getting you up to speed. This podcast ties everything together by combining real life day to day trades and talking shop on virtually every option topic. It is the most encompassing best options site on the market by far. And the best part is that the majority of it is all for free. Most of all options alpha continues to be successful because they are trying to help people number one and they are very humble number two. Love the site love the podcast love the video content love the strategy and method. They are not trying to sell you a quick get rich method, but a data driven time tested method to slowly grow your capital over the years which can be a continuous stream of income well into your latter years.

AMAZING
Kirk’s podcast have helped me gain so much knowledge on becoming a more successful option seller. Putting his learnings into practice can drastically change your trading career. I wish he made more podcast though, but I understand we are all human and life happens ! I will keep re-listening until then!

So far so good
thank you so much for explaining concepts in a no nonsense way, keep my position small and it’s exciting when your account is actually going up. You’re changing my world.

Solid
A good podcast with solid info, without constantly trying to bait and switch or try to sell you something. The How to Start with a Portfolio of $3K is essential for newbies. Some of this is not glamorous - favors long term neutral trades/iron condors, which is counter intuitive in a crazy Bull market. Deals a lot with emotions, reacting to the market, riding out rather than doubling down.
Scott Miller, PMP
Technical and Thoughtful
Kirk does an excellent job of explaining a very technical process in a simple way.  He also finds ways to incorporate some of the outlying concepts that don't always get coverage in the mainstream.  I also greatly appreciate his discection of the pyshcology of trading and how we have to tune our minds and emotions just as much as we learn and tune our trading strategies.

Very helpful
I thought options trading was a quick way to make money, then I tried buying options fell on my face. Selling options seemed scary, with limitless loss, but I knew buying was a losing battle. Then I found this Option Alpha podcast, which lead me to their free training on the website. Everything is so thorough, great examples of good thinking, proper perspective and the encouragement of statistically sound ways to grow your finances. I’m making my way through the web training online, and the podcasts as I drive around. Keep it up Kirk and team, thanks for your help.
