Welcome to Options Gold

When you trade, you’re fighting Wall Street’s ruthless computer algorithms and their armies of professional traders. It can feel like you’re David up against Goliath. And unless you find a reliable advantage, the odds are stacked heavily against you.

Remember, David defeated Goliath with only a slingshot. That’s why John F. Carter founded Simpler Trading over 10 years ago. He wanted to share his successful strategies to help individual traders turn the tables and have an almost unfair advantage.  This simple concept has worked out even better than anyone could have imagined.

Don’t trade alone. Come trade with us.

Why Become a Member?

Trading can be overwhelming. That’s why having a support network is critical to any successful trading plan. We built Simpler Trading with that principle as our foundation, making sure that all our members have access to the experts you need when you need them.

Spend Less Time Learning and More Time Trading.

Learning how to trade profitably can take years. The learning curve is steep and can be very costly. Our goal is to offer you a faster path to success by providing expert market insights, time-tested strategies, and a real-time chat room to interact with our team of active traders with decades of experience. With so much hype and misinformation online, our research, analysis, and expert commentary aims to give you a serious edge when you make trading decisions.

Leverage decades of experience before you make trading decisions.

The Simpler Trading Team is unlike any other we’ve seen with almost 200 years combined market experience. While most other services offer ‘hypothetical’ trades and theories, we share our trading ideas in real-time with our own money on the line. Because we provide instant trade alerts, you can watch for strong setups, even if you work full-time. All you need is a smartphone or tablet (iOS and Android).

In the last 10-weeks my account is up 33% REALIZED PROFIT!! It feels GREAT to finally see some success in my account. [Simpler Trading] has helped me see and now believe that I can see success in trading. Being apart of your Trading Room has truly been my best investment in my 7-year trading career.

I took one class and thought it was so good that [John Carter] opened up his playbook to teach people how he gets to the setup and trades. He wasn’t trying to get us to just follow him blindly, he was trying to teach us how to fish.

You get a tremendous amount of information and perspective on different ideas and options strategies. All the instructors are incredible at what they can teach you, and how they teach as well.
