Tom Sosnoff

Tom Sosnoff, options trader extraordinaire, agreed to talk to me about his way of trading options. Spoiler: Charts? Nope! Any of the classic indicators? Absolutely nope! Fundamentals? Get real, not in options!


So, how does he do it? How does he teach thousands of people to trade options? Well, it all revolves around implied volatility and some simple statistical analysis. Quite a revolutionary way of looking at it all, but it only took a few minutes watching him on his TV show that streams live for several hours a day for me to get totally hooked. Boy do I love what he has to say and how he approaches options trading. Numbers don’t lie, and he has lots of them to support his strategies.

Tom Sosnoff is the co-founder of online trading platform Think or Swim in 1999 that was later sold (for $600 Million plus change). He then took his team and founded “the real financial network”  TastyTrade and a new online trading platform called Dough.

If you have been trading options for a while, this interview contains information you cannot miss. Tom’s approach has changed the way I look at the market and I am in the midst of re-learning my trade, based on what Tom and Co are teaching at TastyTrade.
