Dear trader,

Every day, more and more trading enthusiasts write to me asking for advice on how to improve their performance and earnings.

What I always say is that being a trader is a serious job that requires a constant commitment and study: as with any profession, if you don't allocate the right amount of time to your training, you are only bound to lose all your money.

If you want to trade, the first step is to acquire transversal skills that allow you to diversify your portfolio as much as possible. And the risk diversification is one of the principles that you must always keep in mind when working on the markets.

Even after winning the World Cup Trading Championship 4 times, I personally didn't quit my studies and I tried to make my trading activity more and more robust by diversifying my portfolio. And today I found a new way to make it even more complete and efficient.

What is it about? ... It's about options.

 "... Wait, Andrea Unger trades options? And what do options have to do with systematic trading?"

Actually, since my career started, I've always been very fascinated by options. At the time, many friends with deep knowledge of options told me to focus on these markets because, according to them, my mathematical mind and my love for numbers would have allowed me to better learn and manage these tools.

And over time I realized that options fit perfectly into the systematic trading field.


For the very concept of systematic trading or, as I prefer to call it, "algorithmic". In my opinion, everything related to numbers is algorithmic and can be approached with a scientific method. When operative trading decisions can be made on the basis of a numerical study and following this objective method, we automatically enter the algorithmic trading field.

Until today the only obstacle that kept me away from these markets was the difficulty in controlling the risk and dealing with any black swan events. Just take an online tour to find striking cases of options experts who failed due to unforeseen events.

How to take advantage of the possibilities offered by options while defending yourself from any black swans?

A solution came up after I met Francesco Placci, one of the leading experts in this field. Francesco showed me his innovative strategy "Iron Shark", the only one that allows you to take advantage of the benefits offered by options without fear of black swan events.

Given the importance of this discovery, I decided to share this strategy with you, giving life to a multimedia training program that will allow you to explore options from the basics with focus on risk diversification.

You will be able to understand step by step how to make the most of the possibilities offered by these instruments and learn a strategy that can withstand even negative events.

And there's more: because you're eager to learn, I decided to reserve you a Special Offer...

What are you waiting for?!
OPTIONS Trading with focus on risk diversification:
why is it useful to study this topic?
Perhaps now you are wondering why you should participate in a training program to learn how to trade options. Maybe you are thinking that you already have a good trading system portfolio or that you don't care about the options because you prefer an automated approach or you don't really want to approach a field you don't know anything about since you have no idea where to start.

As I said before, early in my career I overlooked options, although many friends with deep knowledge of options told me to focus on these markets because, in their opinion, they were particularly suited to my "mathematical mind".

As you know, over the years I have specialized in systematic trading, developing a scientific and replicable method that I myself have been adopting for more than twenty years, and that I successfully teach to my students.

I've always wondered about options trading and today I'm more and more convinced that options are an important possibility that should not be wasted. Unlike what we tend to think, in fact, options perfectly suit systematic trading.


Because, as I mentioned before, everything that can be approached with a scientific method that is quantifiable and repeatable and that leads to operative trading decisions taken on the basis of a numerical study automatically falls into systematic trading.

There is a change at the operational level, but the nature of trading is the same. And this is why I believe it is important to study options following the algorithmic, verifiable and transmissible approach that has always characterized me.

The only problem shown by these markets is the difficulty of protecting themselves from unexpected events, the so-called "Black Swans". In recent years, there have been striking cases of traders, some even very experienced, who literally went belly-up because of black swans.

So what is the right way to trade options without taking too many risks?

The solution is to use Iron Shark, a truly innovative strategy developed by Francesco Placci, one of the leading experts in this field.

Unlike other strategies, Iron Shark not only doesn't suffer from black swans but it is also profitable, in some cases.

Would you like to learn how to use the Iron Shark, too?

That is why, together with Placci, I have created a 360 degree multimedia training about options that allows you to learn how to get the most out of these markets using this strategy.
What will you learn with "Iron Shark"?
Perhaps now you are thinking that it would be worth exploring options trading but maybe you are a newbie and you don't know anything about it.

No need to worry. Iron Shark is a 360-degree in-depth program that analyze options trading from the basics, so it is suitable for both beginners and those who already know this topic.

With IRON SHARK, you will learn how to directly trade options and how to independently evaluate a strategy using a backtest software.

Ample space is given to the specific presentation of the Iron Shark strategy, paying attention to its evolution in relation to the underlying, time and volatility, as well as its input setups, position management and backtests.

In addition to the operating strategy with backtest and setup, you will get also an in-depth manual and over 25 audio and video lessons.

And there is also a Special BONUS: an introductory video course about options designed for those who have no knowledge of this topic, in order to get them off to a good start.

Every video lesson has an operational slant: you will get practical tips to immediately improve your trading.

Do not waste time and money: Get this special offer I reserved for those who want to take action now and get the most out of the opportunity offered by options!
