HERE'S WHAT MY OPTIONS ACADEMY MEMBERS HAVE TO SAY
Options Academy has been truly game-changing for me. It's really helped focus my investment strategy and develop confidence in a time-tested system that is rooted in risk-management and human psychology.
Simon is an incredible teacher who has helped me begin my personal trading journey. I am delighted to report a +167% YTD portfolio return in 2023.
I've just completed Options Academy and it has been awesome. I'm new to options and haven't even begun trading yet but I know why I want to trade options and have started on my trading plan.
I don't normally give feedback, but module 6 was massive for me. I've started journaling in the morning and it has really opened my eyes to what's important in my life. I'm going to start meditating too and begin a journey to hopefully become a better version of myself. Even if I never trade an option, this course has been well worth it.
Simon is an options sensei. For years I had been looking for an options program that matches my own learning pace, with substance and a scientific system, and I was lucky to have come across Simon's risk management workshop back in April 2023. Halfway through that, I knew I had found my place of learning. Not many active traders share all that they know, and that too with a system that actually leverages a scientific, yet simple method to their analysis. If you are serious about trading volatility and adopting a reliable & robust system, look no further than Tao of Trading. I had a derivative "phobia" which Simon's training helped me address, and my own journey into options was my keenness to grasp the math behind the options universe. You do not need to be a math wiz or a quant to adopt Simon's methods... a huge plus. You do not need to follow blind 'signals' from the wilderness either. Simon teaches you to 'fish for yourself'.
In the Options Academy Accelerate track, you get Simon's daily analysis of positions and rationale for a trade he actually takes. Simon is a gifted communicator and is clearly invested in his members' success; I thoroughly enjoy listening to him articulate his views and every detail that goes with it. And if you are a beginner, you would benefit immensely with Options Academy Elevate wherein Simon provides his four basic trading pillars, each of which has a well-thought-through structure, not to mention the basics that goes into the universe of volatility trading. The hallmark of the Accelerate program, at least for me, are the past recordings of Simon's Learning Labs.. all the way from 2020.. listening to those recordings will ramp up your knowledge far quicker than any free options trading Youtube videos, and a lot of Simon's lessons from Learning Labs resonate even today.
Both Simon and Jasmine take the time to answer queries over emails and via web tickets quite swiftly, and I am grateful for their consistency & responsiveness.
When it comes to actual ROI from the program, the cost of OA Elevate + Accelerate + How to Hedge is just a fraction compared to what you actually gain from it... looking back, I believe it is a steal - but don't tell Simon! 😄
Now I didn't start with the $5k you recommended, but instead with $600 and my account is up to about $1,100.
But most importantly, inflation isn't a looming stressor in my life.
Thank you Simon. I'm learning a lot and I'm happy I made the decision to learn about how the market truly works. I couldn't have done it without you.
I found Simon's Options Academy course very useful. Despite being involved in financial markets for over 25 years, I came out of it with new technical analysis tools and trading setups to add to my arsenal.
The Accelerate service is an excellent daily review of the markets which cuts through all the confusing noise, and provides solid trading setups as well as Simon's ongoing guidance to managing and closing of those setups.
Amongst all the trading courses out there, this one stands out and I would highly recommend it to newbies and experienced traders.
Thank you to Simon for his guidance and Option Academy trading tutorials. They have been really helpful in setting my trading path from being an amateur to moving towards professional.
Options Academy has been real deal for me. So far I have closed 8 trades (5 bounce and 3 volatility expansions) and have had a 50% win rate but my profits have been far bigger than my losing trades. My NLV is up 11% in 2 months. Taking loss has never been so stress-free before!
Hey Simon! I have already completed the Options Academy Elevate course and also joined the Accelerate program.
I think you're doing a fantastic job. It is quite difficult for me as a new trader to navigate the markets but with the training received I feel much more confident.
Hi Simon, today on the occasion of Teacher's day I thought I better say it - a big thanks for introducing me to this beautiful world of trading. So far in my life I had never got interested in any subject or work that I was doing. But finally because of you I found my passion. God always has the best plans and he made sure I find my passion and learn it from someone who is the best!
Before enrolling I knew absolutely nothing about the stock market and how things work. I am so lucky to have learnt it from you. You probably would have thought that you only teach how to trade but actually I apply a lot of your teachings in my day to day life as well, and I can't tell you how better and positive it has become.
I really want to thank you Simon for sharing all your life long learnings with us and helping us grow. I would still want to meet you in person someday and thank you for being one of the best teachers in my life!
Simon teaches the world of options in the utmost understandable way and makes it usable for everybody.
I never thought to be successful in that way from the beginning: +49% in the first month.
I did the Options Academy On Demand training and will definitely continue with Simon.
The amount of knowledge Simon has shared in the last year or so with us, it's just beyond amazing. Listening to his market review on Options Academy Accelerate is the best 15mins I spend every day.
I would like to express my gratitude for all that I have learned from Simon and for the inspiration he gives us every day. It has helped me tremendously in achieving my professional goals and made me love trading more than I previously used to. To be a full-time trader is my lifelong dream and I have never been this close to achieving that.
NLV update: I am having the best year in terms of percentage return. As of today my NLV grew at a rate of 455% YTD. I am still improving every day and I really hope I can keep getting better.
I've been trading options on and off and couldn't find the consistency.
Joining Options Academy gave me the much-needed clarity and perspective. The course was densely packed with relevant information. I unlearned my old trading method and picked up fresh ones. Simon made it look so simple and easy. I just love the scan (save so much time!) and easy to eyeball chart setups.
I applied what I learned on ROST 8th July buying a put 21 August expiry and exited 14th July. Had a nice profit of 50%. I'm definitely glad I signed up!

Closed my PTON position, didn't muck around. Closed at 29 seconds after the bell. Dealt at mid, filled immediately. Had 2 contracts, bought on 17th August 2020 for $1.56, sold for $14.82 (profit of 850%).
My performance now has a 50% win rate. Average gain on wins +288%, average loss on losses -39%.
Hard to believe I am making trades like this. Thank you Simon!
I have been involved in financial markets for over twelve years. My main focus was in value investing, but I wanted to try something new: Trading. Therefore, I bought Simon's Options Academy course. I did not have high expectations about the course because the majority of the courses sold over the internet were useless. To my surprise, Simon's course was different.
The course is very well structured and practical. The course provides a really robust system for trading stocks and ETFs via options. I have a background in algorithmic trading so I can quickly assess any system with my intuition. The system has a real edge. It is a discretionary system. It is an advantage and disadvantage at the same time; it cannot be automated, but on the other hand, the performance of the system can be enhanced with the trader's skill.
I would like to highlight the time efficiency of the system as well. After some practice, it takes only an hour a day to do the work.
I was familiar with Simon's work and so, when I received notice he was starting Options Academy I did not hesitate to sign up as a member. I have not been disappointed.
There are six modules and an introduction to options basics. There are also bonus sections with clear and precise instructions for setting up charts as well as checklists to keep track of the market and a very comprehensive trading plan.
Simon is extremely experienced and knowledgeable and he shares his knowledge very generously. His presentations are easy to follow and can be accessed at any time.
I would not hesitate to recommend Options Academy to anybody, whether they are an experienced trader or very novice trader.
Thank you for the great learning experience through Options Academy. I am a MBA/CPA from Canada and the 6 modules of Options Academy were as valuable to me as my MBA/CPA.
This course provided instant knowledge of investing and managing risk leading to great profits. Earnings module was amazing.
I gained well over $20k profits with AAPL, AMD, QCOMM. The results have been so great that I think I am dreaming.
Your teaching method was exceptional! Thank you.
I want to thank Simon for his generosity in sharing his knowledge and experience in trading!
I'm just 1 month in (first trade was on 18th November) and have done 7 trades, 6 of those closed out with a 50/50 ratio of winners & losers and a net NLV return of 9.5%.
Of course there is an enormous amount of learning still to do, but having such a generous and open mentor helps a lot!
I took a couple of earnings trades off Simon’s list, one of which was in TXN. On the 5th October I bought the delta 20, 23 Oct $152.5 calls. I then rolled them on the 8th Oct making a 72% profit and buying the new Delta 20 $157.5 calls which are today up 61.5%!
It’s been an incredible journey so far and I’m pumped for 2021. Simon is a true guru and the knowledge he has imparted coupled with his insightful posts on LinkedIn bring so much value to me personally.
The course has been invaluable.
Simon Ree is my enlightening mentor in Options Academy.
I am very honoured to be one of his inaugural students in the Academy. In this wonderful 6 weeks journey, Simon has shared many of his exceptional insights and practical tips on options trading. It's actually the correct mindset as a trader and the risk management skillsets which I believe are the most valuable treasure Simon has uncovered for us.
I'm glad that one of my recent options trade in NFLX has brought me a 250% profit. Can't imagine how powerful it could be!
The market can be a very dangerous place. There are people with phenomenal power over massive wealth, research, and technology whose goal is to suck you in and fleece you. (I know from first-hand experience). On the other hand, if you can survive the wolves - and find exquisite trades - the market can be extremely lucrative. There's only one way to succeed in this vicious environment: be smarter than other players and use a holistic system.
Does your current system have ...
a) Strategies to identify winning trades regardless of which way the market is pointing?
b) A risk management strategy so that you know exactly when to get in, stay in and walk away? (And when to stay out altogether?)
c) Tools to harness your personal psychology? (This is really where winning - and losing - happens).
If you answered "No" to any of those questions and you actually want to work at and win at trading, immerse yourself in Simon Ree's Options Academy.
Having just completed the course, it's clear Simon has worked hard for you and thought of nearly everything for you so that you have fantastic foundations to win. Fair warning: it's beautiful in its simplicity, but requires diligence - if you're not willing to work at it, do not buy this course. If however you want to succeed, this course is hands down the smartest thing you can do. The costs will vanish with your lifetime of winnings.
I joined Simon’s online course late 2020. Learning a new technique takes time and effort. I am a true believer that’s Simon wealth of wisdom is the right teaching and sharing brings plenty of value for all levels in their options trading journey. The private group is a great bonus platform for all students to share!
I would really recommend his course to anyone as you need to learn from a true professional who has years of experience in Global Markets and Investment Banks. You need to invest in yourself as this is a lifetime tool that can be mastered. Taking free trainings or from non-professionals, may lead to bad habits and unprofessional ways.
Thank you Simon for your ongoing support. I am improving and tightening my edge daily!
I had the pleasure of taking part in the Options Academy programme. Simon has put together a wonderful course that focuses on various aspects of technical analysis and trading, ranging from building and reading charts, identifying entry and exit points, managing risk and lastly - understanding trading psychology. This latter point was crucial for me as it taught me to be comfortable with inaction, or JOMO (Joy Of Missing Out). This course is suitable for a novice trader but also someone a bit more experienced in the field of finance and trading.
A few profitable bounce trades during the first couple of weeks of the course were VIPS (call option), UNIT (call option) and ROST (put option).
The simplicity and rules-based approach that Simon teaches is mind-blowing and achievable by anyone with a little bit of effort and self-control. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in financial markets or just looking to add an extra income stream.
I've been a member of Simon's option trading community for well over a year now, and I can say that I'm very impressed with Simon's ability to teach what is a complex subject in a way that the retail trader can rapidly get their head around.
Whilst I come from a corporate derivatives trading background, I learned a lot about the way Simon looks for trade candidates, teaches reputable trading setups with an edge, helps you learn how best to express your view with the right options strategy, and most importantly, how to manage your risk and psychology.
Complete newbies will get an excellent grounding in the basics as well. Simon is also a humble, down-to-earth guy, despite his experience and knowledge, which is a hallmark of most successful traders in my experience.
A rested mind / calm emotional state is key to trading.
Thanks to Simon’s course, I took a total of 25 trades and was up 36% in January 2021. My risk/reward was as follows:
Average gain: 93.8%
Average loss: 47.3%
Total average earnings: 36%
The key winners for me were BAC, TXN, MSFT, AXP, CHKP.
I first encountered Options Trading at a marketing seminar in Melbourne, 2014. What I learned was you could make money in a rising or falling market. This intrigued me and so my quest began. Over the years I have attended many, many seminars and courses and I have spent thousands of dollars seeking the Holy Grail. Well can I tell you, look no further, I’ve found it!
If you were ever looking for “The Complete Options Trading Course”, then Simon Ree’s “Options Academy” is it. Right from the outset Simon’s course is streamlined to include newbies through to experienced traders. His delivery is clean, concise, orderly and logical. It is also at a pace that accommodates all.
I have been truly overwhelmed with Simon’s patience and thoroughness when illustrating his concepts and individual approach to trading. This course is packed with gold nuggets and an endless handout of bonuses which will literally save you hundreds of hours. It is virtually fail proof.
In Summary this course is Awesome.
Options Academy provided me with the tools to understand options, and strategies to trade them. I demonstrated my skill set I learned under Simon in job interviews, leading to my trading internship at JP Morgan headquarters in New York City.
Now that I take the training provided by JP Morgan, I see how similarly top Wall Street firms and Simon train their traders.
The practical experience and conceptual base I gained with Options Academy provided a strong foundation for the more technical training demanded of me as an analyst.
