Kevin M. O’Brien, a contributing author on the financial website Seeking Alpha, has been trading stock options since he was 19 years old. Throughout his years of experience, Mr. O’Brien has always believed that stock options trading has been extremely misunderstood.
He began to take it upon himself to educate others throughout his career, often teaching new traders who have never even traded a stock option before how to do so the right way.
Mr. O’Brien also developed his own strategy for day-trading options, along with a published book titled, “Breakthrough: A Consistent Daily Options Trading Strategy for High Flying Stocks” which is currently available on Amazon.com. This book, with years of exhaustive work, research, back-testing, and diligence, has been somewhat of a game-changer in terms of getting in and out of trades daily, usually with extremely short holding periods. You can also find many of Mr. O’Brien’s articles on this strategy on the website www.seekingalpha.com.
However, there is a lot more to his story, as Mr. Kevin M. O’Brien is extremely well-rounded in many different option strategies, such as earnings trades, weekly trades, intermediate trades, and long-term trades. Mr. O’Brien will use all of them when the right opportunity presents itself.
Outside of the daily options trading strategy, Mr. O’Brien absolutely loves debit spreads that generate very high rewards when used correctly. With Kevin, it is not about the quantity of trades, but the quality, and that is what really separates him from many others in the options industry. Essentially, Mr. O’Brien would rather make two excellent trades than ten mediocre or losing trades during a week. This is what this website and subscription service hope to help you with.
Mr. O’Brien attended Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL and currently resides in San Diego, California.
