Hi Don,

In a word - WOW

I watched the archived recordings of the chat room and your coaching sessions every evening after work this past week. Actually, this has been the first time that I have ever had the opportunity to check out a real trading chat room. As a relative newbie to options trading, to be able to look over the shoulder of professional traders as they present what is happening in the markets is invaluable - and eye opening if you venture in there unprepared.

I really like the direction you're taking TheoTrade. The content on the site is amazing. Thank you for presenting it in a way that even us less experienced traders can follow along and benefit. Posting the trades and shared TOS links in the archive is very helpful, especially for those of us who can't be in the chat room during the market session.

I learned a great deal watching you and Jeff this week. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store at TheoTrade this coming week.

thanks for including me in your Beta for TheoTrade, awesome start and can't wait to see what unfolds. I so appreciate you not taking advantage of everyone and charging for every freakin class. I know you passing on your knowledge at a bargain will come back to you a hundred fold.

I just wanted to put my two cents in for those of us over 50 who are scrambling to get their retirement accounts back in shape as well as the income trades.  Thanks again for all your knowledge you graciously share and for your bedside manner in the way you present it. Here is to a profitable 2016

Please don't ever change your approach.  You offer so much if people are willing to learn.

Thank you again!
