Expert-Level Options for Sophisticated Traders

Welcome to Cabot Options Institute Quant Trader

Thank you for subscribing to Cabot Options Institute Quant Trader and welcome!

For more than twenty years I have worked diligently on refining several of my favorite and most successful options strategies. My options strategies are not “get rich quick” strategies, rather statistically-sound options strategies based on three basic ideas – probabilities, mean-reversion and active risk-management.

After speaking with thousands of investors, I discovered that the majority of investors were not looking for a “get rich quick” scheme, or a foolproof method of trading options (we all know there isn’t one). What they wanted was a realistic method with a foundation in statistics. A method that used the strategies options professionals use. Option strategies based purely on probabilities, not emotional bias. Options strategies that employ capital preservation techniques (proper position-sizing and adjustments).

I look forward to helping you learn these strategies, while being your guide to regular, profitable trades, no matter what the market conditions are.


Every Monday, I will publish an Issue that discusses our open trades and how we plan to proceed going forward. Each weekly issue will include the companies that I plan to focus on plus several other trade ideas for those that wish to trade a bit more often on their own.

Member Calls

Once a month on Wednesday of earnings week, we will get together for a live webinar. In each webinar we will discuss not only open trades, but potential trades as well.

These live webinars are my bread and butter – where I can give you true value and education so that you fully grasp my concepts and how to get the most out of your membership.


You will receive email alerts when market or trade conditions warrant it; during each expiration cycle I will issue between 3-8 alerts using our risk-defined strategies.

Special Reports

Our catalog of Special Reports provides further options analysis that offers a deeper dive into trading strategies and tactics. Here you will find all of my step-by-step strategy guides for the strategies we use most frequently, plus the statistical approach I use around each and every trade.

Plus, I invite you to send an email to me at if you have any questions about my recommendations or the market in general. I enjoy corresponding with subscribers very much as I feel it is beneficial to both of us.

I look forward to a long and profitable relationship.
