The trusted provider of options news, education and trading strategies goes public CHICAGO--(Business Wire)-- The Options News Network announces the launch of ONN.tv targeting self-directed, independent options traders and investors seeking timely news, options education, and options trading strategies. "The key to success for any options trader is targeted and timely information and intelligence about the options market. That's the singular focus of the Options News Network - to provide options traders with a trusted source to gather news, ideas, and education that is timely, relevant, and impactful," said Matt Buckley, the CEO of ONN.tv. ONN.tv is a free site, offering viewers a mix of education, news, and entertainment targeting novice, intermediate, and advanced options traders. Initially devoted to equity options, ONN.tv plans to launch programming about options on commodities, financial futures, indexes and ETFs during the next quarter. Current ONN.tv programming offers a rich mix of educational and news shows. For instance, OptionsPhysics provides an extensive library of learning material regardless of an options trader's experience and skill. OptionsPhysics Basics, walks you through introductory lessons in options trading and strategies. These lessons begin with the definitions and terms you'll need to know and walks you through, step-by-step, the strategies you'll want to have to begin your options trading. Kevin Cook, the host of OptionsPhysics noted that, "OptionsPhysics is our passionate attempt to make options knowledge relevant, useful, and fun for the self-directed investor." MadAboutOptions delivers options trading ideas based on Jim Cramer's sentiments he expresses during his Lightning Round on his Mad Money show. With 15 years of options trading experience, Jud "Gomer" Pyle is the MadAboutOptions Resident Expert. Jud provides viewers with an alternative way to think about Cramer's views, using options instead of simply stock. "We show you options strategies you can use on both sides of Cramer's picks, so you can make options trades whether you agree with him or not," said Pyle. In a recent site review, Condor Options noted that, "This site definitely targets an unfilled niche in the world of online financial journalism: nobody else is providing quality video coverage of the options markets, and if they keep adding new educational posts and videos at anything like their current pace, this could become one of the best resources for options education anywhere on the web." "Even stock investors who have never traded an option before are becoming more interested daily in the use of options to protect their investments or generate additional income," said Buckley. "ONN.tv can help them as well learn how to understand and integrate options into their stock trading methodology."
