1Option was founded in 2006 by me – Pete Stolcers. I'm a seasoned veteran in the options industry with 30 years of experience and I trade full-time. I spent a fortune developing my proprietary software over the last 10 years and I share it with other traders. You will find dozens of video tutorials by visiting Stalker Training on the website. Option Stalker has everything you could ever want in a platform. Pay close attention to the videos that describe the most powerful proprietary indicator you will ever find. It is all I use to day trade the S&P 500 e-mini futures. Watch the videos and take the 1 week trial.
I make my living trading (not selling subscriptions). Please watch the videos in Stalker Training and you will have all of the information you need. Are you tired of the same old tools and indicators? So was I. That is why I developed my own software and indicators. This truly unique set of research tools is available to self-starting traders who are willing to roll up their sleeves and watch some videos. I will not hound you to sign-up, I am too busy trading. If you sign-up – great. If you don't, that is OK too.
Yes. I use a five minute chart (M5) when I day trade. For swing trades you need to use a longer time frame for your charts (M30 or H1).
Yes. The chat room is on the website. Log in using your credentials and you will see a link on the main menu called Option Stalkers. Members use the trading software to find trades and they share their ideas. I post my futures day trades in the chat room. The chat room is included in the subscription price and I do not offer it separately.
I have not provided much information about Option Stalker in this FAQ page because I have dedicated an entire library of videos to it. Everything you need to know is in those videos. Option Stalker offers near real-time data from the IEX exchange. It is called near real-time because it is updated every minute and because it is only from one exchange. If you are using a five minute chart you will not notice much of a difference. A 15 minute chart or longer is usually identical to a chart that uses consolidated data. Traders who have brokerage accounts with Tradier or Interactive Brokers can interface through the API and they can get real-time consolidated quotes. You can also trade through Option Stalker through those brokerage APIs.
Option Stalker has a one-week trial that costs $1 and there is a limit of one per person. You will have full access and near real-time data. If credit card security is your concern, please know that 1Option does not collect credit card information. The transaction is processed by one of the nation's largest transaction gateways (Authorize.net) and your credit card information is as secure as possible. The fact that you were willing to spend $1 tells me that you are serious. During the week you will find some incredible trades using Option Stalker and you will see great trades posted in the chat room.
We are directional traders and that means we have to patiently wait for conditions to line up. Everything starts with the market and my comments and my futures trades. They will keep you on the right side of the action. The Market Rating and Market Signals in the chat room will also help you. With the wind at your back (market) you can target stocks using the Option Stalker scanner. It will put you right at the point of ambush. Pounce on the opportunity and share the trade with the other traders in the chat room.
Option Stalker is Windows based and it will not work on a tablet. The viewing area is too small. It will work on a laptop or desktop that has Windows (or a Windows emulation program for Mac users).
On the home page please click the green Live Chat banner (flashing in right margin). I will answer your questions during market hours.
All of the research you see is done by me. I spend hours each day analyzing the market. Everything starts with the market so I'd better get it right.
Yes. I have a library of videos dedicated to educating traders. Please click "Stalker Training" on the main menu. Option Buyer has annotated charts and a detailed analysis of the trade so you will learn my process.
1Option does not offer refunds. Take the $1 trial and you will have access to everything. Please make sure to watch the videos. They will describe everything in Option Stalker.
My proprietary indicator works. Master it and you will find that Option Stalker pays for itself many times over.
