Vincent Willkomm founder of freaky finance has been a successful private investor in all possible asset classes for over 26 years and is now a self-made millionaire. In recent years, he has specialized strongly in trading stock options and offers... various services related to options trading. In this way he would like to make the royal class of securities trading better known.
The kickstart into options trading - the implementation guide I recommend to every beginner!
Personally, I booked the implementation support to learn how to use the TWS, because the TWS seems quite overwhelming at first glance. And Vincent has fulfilled this flawlessly.
However, I would recommend the accompaniment not only from a technical perspective, but also from a professional perspective. This was not one of my motives for buying, since I am already professionally involved in options trading on a daily basis, but especially with this technical background, I think that Vincent's guidance for beginners is really useful.
In short...in my opinion you learn everything important to be able to take your first independent steps in options trading.
I have approached the topic of options trading via YouTube videos and realized that I find the topic very exciting, but my way is quite laborious and somehow no security arises in the topic.
I then booked the online beginner's course from Freaky Finance and have not regretted it.
In the course is first explained what options trading is basically and how to trade with the TraderWorkStation. (I also found that part on Youtube&Co - but was much more elaborate for me). Afterwards, however, it is about the concrete selection of stocks for options trading and about possibilities to implement strategies with it. In the basics, a relatively defensive approach is taught and advised against "gambling" discouraged - for the beginner just right I think.
In the second part of the course, trades are discussed together and (who likes) also traded. Gradually, the course becomes more and more characterized by the questions of the participants and an exchange develops among each other. At first, this seems a bit chaotic, as there are quite different levels of knowledge among the participants. Over time, however, this becomes more and more equalized. Those who actively ask questions can gain an unbelievably wide range of benefits. But even those who are less active in asking questions can get a lot of benefit from the questions of the others.
All sessions are recorded as video and are available permanently (for how long?). So if you want to catch up on something or missed a session, you can do so individually.
Outstanding(!) is availability of Freaky Finance also for questions outside the sessions. I don't know how he manages it, but actually you always get an answer (to whatever moves you) within the shortest time. Sometimes there are also inspirations for trades. He also helps when an option needs to be managed and a rookie is still unsure what to do.
This "accompaniment" continues via a common course chat even after the end of the sessions - but in the course of time the questions are also answered and discussed by other participants. Very helpful!
Even after the course you are not yet a professional options trader - but you have the start, the basic tools and like-minded people in the chat. This is a very good way to gain initial experience and further hone your personal strategy, while managing the risk yourself.
For the price you get in any case a very good package for options entry. Even those who do not know whether the topic of options is something for them in the long term will not regret it.
I would book the course again and find the topic "options" still very exciting! (In retrospect, I should have done it earlier).
Provides good approaches, but is too unstructured in Summer. Important topics (rules, money management, hedging) fall by the wayside to be permanently successful in trading. For an absolute beginner but still recommended, because you learn a lot about the TWS.
Attention, I evaluate here the "Sofortseminar", where you watch old seminar videos. Here I can only advise everyone to book the live seminar!
I participated in the webinar "Selecting the appropriate underlyings for options trading" on 12/03/2022. Vincent explained everything very well and at the same time kept switching to the appropriate online pages, so that there was a very good practical reference and you could understand all the steps for stock selection very well. He responded to all my questions that I asked during the webinar.
I started trading on the stock market in March last year without any knowledge. Have had an intensive and expensive online education and have been live trading since October. Am starting to understand the handling of options trading through Vince! The pieces of the mosaic fit together ... 5 stars from me
I am thrilled. After only four weeks of the Stillhalter Academy (lasting 12 weeks), I will soon be a professional in the Stillhalter business. I regret that I did not get to know freaky finance earlier.
Already from the first contact you super that you are in good hands here. Honesty and humanity are the order of the day here. You get here and there more than you would expect.
Am still know at the beginning of the academy, but the input and the tips in between are really good.
Greeting the FinanzOpa
I can highly recommend the guidance when starting out in options trading. Vincent helps with setting up the TWS and explains the most important parameters and what to pay attention to when selling and, if necessary, buying back contracts. I particularly like the fact that the support is individually designed and Vincent responds to personal concerns and questions and it is also possible to quickly arrange a zoom meeting if a situation should require it. For me personally, the support helped me get off to a good start and, provided you are willing to learn personally, you will also learn a lot through the support.
Very helpful offer to start options trading with TWS in a very concrete and operational way. The sessions in the group were helpful, as one or the other question was also discussed, which were not initially on my list, but are good to know. Vincent takes a lot of time to answer questions and share experiences. I would recommend the offer anytime.
