We are honored to have received the following testimonies from our Power Cycle Trading clients!

Trade Responsibly, Individual Results May Vary Substantially


“Thank you for the wonderful credit spread option course delivered this week. The class was so thorough and expansive on the immense flexibility of credit spreads. Before your class, I was not aware of all of the creative ways to defend a credit spread as you gave such a Swiss army knife list of compelling, defensive tools. Thanks again, Larry, for all of your efforts to help traders. It is so inspiring to hear an option professional with your vast experience helping others up the ladder to a new level of understanding on credit spreads and risk management.”   — Charles, Missouri


“I retired from my job as a radiographer (medical imaging technologist) about 10 years ago, after working for 50 years. I am now 84 years of age. About 5 years ago I wanted to do something to supplement my pension and I came to know about options trading. I attended Option etic courses here in Perth and started trading on straight calls and puts. I did not do well and I stopped trading for a year. Then I came across your presentation and I decided not to give up and registered for your courses. I find it all much easier to understand now after your courses.”  — Ponniah, Australia


“I have enjoyed your presentations. They are so full of details that are needed to be an effective options trader. These facts take away much of the uncertainty and the resultant fear of using options.”  — Elizabeth W., St. Louis


“I just watched a webinar on YouTube where you were showing how to draw Trend lines properly using Pivot Point 1 and Pivot Point 2. You then combined that information with a volatility compression, which made for a monster move. I never knew the right way to draw a trend line and now I do!!!”  — Travis


“I wanted to reply back to let you know how much I enjoyed your recent webinar ‘Beyond Charts: Attitudes & Actions of Top Traders’, and your most gracious offers for indicators along with the course. I feel your course is exactly what I need. Your teaching style is excellent and I’ll be interested in the full course with scanners and indicators.” — Linda


“Thank you for your seminar. Great experienced teacher and communicator. What a blessing!” — Justo, Texas


“I still can’t believe I was fortunate enough to win your PCTM, but I will be forever grateful that I did!!! Just saying thank you, doesn’t even come close to expressing my sincere gratitude! It almost makes me physically ill to think that I might not have purchased the system (at the present time, even though the price was an unbelievable bargain!), because I’ve spent so much money over the past two years trying to learn how to become a confident/successful trader. Anyway, wild horses couldn’t take it away from now! With Lydia’s help (she’s awesome by the way), I was able to gain access to the website Friday evening and have spent most of the weekend reviewing the training videos and applying the indicator settings (I have a Trade Station & TOS acct). I can’t get over how comfortable and confident I feel with the PCTM! It’s amazingly easy to understand, has simple clear rules that anyone can follow and provides unbelievable fidelity when applied to price action. I truly believe I’ve finally found exactly what I’ve been so desperately searching for and it’s like a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I honestly believe with your help, my goal of retiring as soon as possible (turned 55 on Oct 25th), is about to become a reality! Looking forward to a long lasting relationship with you and Power CycleTrading. Thank you so much!!!” — Frank


“I have to say, I feel like I have learned more today in your webinar than I think I have in so long with anything in trading. I have been a very frustrated ‘wanna be trader’ with lots of ‘information’ I have acquired and paid for but all I ever seem to do is just bounce around and become more frustrated. Your sharing practical information on sup / res areas and how to look at trends, again, more light bulbs went on. Then, even though I have the scanner and I have been through some of your other boot camp information for swing trading, I just never did ‘get it’. But, today you had it together on a level that I ‘got it! Then when you shared how to deal with a ‘squeeze’ (volatility compression break out), I think I finally have the information I needed to use this. I have been watching the squeeze for some time now but I could never figure out how to determine the break out with any consistency and today you shared how to do this. For the first time with this, I now ‘see it’ or at least enough to make it help me be profitable. For that information I really want to say thank you! I could go on more but I am sure you hear this kind of stuff all the time but I am really pleased with what I learned today. I am really excited because I want to supplement my income and I think I really have a chance to do so, if I can simply follow along with what I have learned and apply it. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I have the tools to do this. I am really looking forward to being in your trading room. I am hoping this will cement the items I have learned and help me re-enforce what needs to be done. I hope to learn good habits and learn to wait for the trade and not just trade, which I have been guilty of when I have been frustrated. Take care and I thank you again for such a good program today.”  — Steve


“Thanks again for taking part in this week’s Trade-A-Thon. This was definitely an intense event and the attendees loved it.  As we were closing down the room one of the guys asked when the next one would be which is pretty cool considering we had just wrapped up 24 hours straight and they still wanted more!  As usual you were awesome and we look forward to doing a future event with you very soon. You had a tough road considering the Nasdaq was shut down during your time but you still did an awesome job. I tell everyone you are one of the most straight forward and all around good guys in this business. Thanks so much for your partnership over the past year.”  — Morgan Busby, Trading Pub


“I have been on the $7 trail membership for the trading room beginning April 23rd and Larry’s site, Power Cycle Trading, has much to offer. In fact, since that time I have made $590 in purchases of Larry’s courses, TOS indicators and scanner, all are proving to be good investments. And, I am finding great value in the daily aftermarket videos of his Power Cycle Trading Club along with his occasional daily email alerts.”  — Paul, Power Trading Club


“You have just given me more usable information than I have received from anyone else in a year!”  — David


“I really wsh to learn all I can about how the Markets work and how to make a more consistent income. I now regard you as a mentor.”  — Russell, West Virginia


“Larry, very good material last night. That application for different markets was really helpful! Thx for your heart to teach, it really comes through.” — Greg


“I was definitely impressed by the webinar tonight and appreciated your taking the time to deal with my questions.” — Motti


“I bought your Power Cycle Trading course Friday evening July 8th, after a tough week of trading. That week I had lots of trades, lots of volume but with very little if any profitable results. I was truly considering rather or not I should continue day trading. I remember reading your sales information several days before and it said something like…tired of losing money…invest in yourself…you won’t change unless you change. Personally knowing you and your trading reputation for the last thirty years, I kept on remembering your words each totally frustrating trade I made the rest of that week. Today I made six option trades in Apple…5 wins and 1 small loss for a total net profit of $230 per contract. Your indicators guided me through each of these trades. There is no way I would have even thought about day trading options in Apple prior to buying your course. The Friday evening I bought your course, I downloaded everything and thoroughly starting studying all the material Friday night and all during the rest of the weekend. I can’t tell you how many times I watched the videos and read over the material but it was a lot. I just flat was excited that finally maybe I had something at my finger tips that would help me trade better.

“Your Power Cycle Trading indicators have turned my trading around to the positive dramatically. I truly now have much better executions…entries and exits. I finally feel that I am trading on a professional level the way I should be if I am day trading for a living. I use to trade 25 to 40 sometimes more trades a day. All of those trades I use to make I felt certain they would go in the right direction when I placed the order, but honestly a lot of times immediately after placing the order I was merely hoping they would go in the right directions. With your Power Cycle Trading indicators I know what is going on all day long. By quickly looking at the indicators I know it will either be a long time before I will get into a trade with that stock / option or I will know that a trade is just minutes away and I will start watching it closely. It is amazing how quick the stock / options moves when the indicators line up just right. Also what I love is that I have a great guide with your indicators for an exit.

“As you know, I have traded options and/or stocks in your trading room every single trading day since the Monday after I bought your course July 8th. I find the trading room to be totally beneficial to me, plus it is fun and exciting and as far as I am concerned the place to be. Hearing you speak with detailed explanations of charts while seeing your real time charts reinforces my trading and I get all types of trading ideas. It is also nice to get additional ideas from other members as to which stocks are about to turn up on your indicators. Lots of eyes looking at numerous and different stocks is helpful to me. Larry I just got to tell you how much I truly appreciate you, your indicators and what you are teaching me. I would recommend your course and trading room to anyone day trading who truly wants to dynamically improve their trading and profitability.”
— Will in Texas

“Larry, I am finished trading gold futures for the day unless something happens that is news driven. I am up $2,380 per contract for the day…”

“Thanks guys…the trades were there…”

“Larry, it is all in your indicators…I just follow them and push the buttons to execute….”
– Will in Texas

“Today I made six option trades in Apple…5 wins and 1 small loss for a total net profit of $230 per contract. Your indicators guided me through each of these trades. There is no way I would have even thought about day trading options in Apple prior to buying your course.”

“I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you just how pleased that I am with everything that you offer with the Power Cycle Trading Room. As you’ll read below, my returns have increased pretty dramatically since joining you in the Trading Room.

“Just a bit of history…I have been trading since 1997. I traded full time from 1998 through 2000 then again starting in 2011. Since around 2007 I had been working on an idea for full time trading. I had attended an uncountable number of webinars during that period. Some of these webinars I did not make it through the first 5 minutes, others I made it through the whole program.

“When I first attended your webinar I was very impressed. I liked what you had to say. I got started with you using options only. While options got me in the Trading Room, I quickly went to other opportunities that were presented in the Trading Room. Through your Trading Room I have met quite a lot of incredible traders. They, along with your input, have lead me to the place that I currently trade GC, CL, and occasionally NQ. What a find the Virtual Trading Room as been!

“Then you introduced the studies that Hugh Bryant had developed for you. The guy is, in my book, a genius. He has put so much of the info that I need to trade onto one chart, AUTOMATICALLY!!! My trading has not been the same since!

“Before being in your room, my goal was to make 1% a day on the portfolio (on days traded). That, some would say, is a lofty goal. I was close to it, but never consistently hit the goal. Since being in your room daily (now for over 6 months), I am on an average of over 5% return per day on the portfolio, per days traded. In anyone’s book, that is INCREDIBLE!!!

“I honestly believe that without your help, Hugh’s program, and the advice and friendship of those in the Trading Room, that I would not have been able to achieve these kinds of returns.

“Thanks for all that you do Larry!”
– Doug in Atlanta

09:31:21 {prospero:Doug} “any of y’all who don’t have the Customized Indicator program … are just plain crazy! :-) There is NO WAY I could have the returns that I have without it! THANKS HUGH & Power Cycle Trading for all of your time and efforts getting this thing up and going!!! IMPRESSIVE!!!!”

09:31:53 {prospero:Doug} “ABSOLUTELY!!!!”

09:32:07 {prospero:Doug} “from my heart and my wallet!” :-)

09:32:24 {prospero:Will} “I agree with Doug!!!!!!!!!!”


“I have to say, I feel like I have learned more today in your Boot Camp for Swing Trading webinar than I think I have in so long with anything in trading.

“I have been a very frustrated ‘wanna be trader’ with lots of ‘information’ I have acquired and paid for but all I ever seem to do is just bounce around and become more frustrated.

“Your sharing practical information on sup / res areas and how to look at trends, again, more light bulbs went on.

For the first time with this, I now ‘see it’ or at least enough to make it help me be profitable. For that information I really want to say thank you!

“I could go on more but I am sure you hear this kind of stuff all the time but I am really pleased with what I learned today. I am really excited because I want to supplement my income and I think I really have a chance to do so, if I can simply follow along with what I have learned and apply it. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I have the tools to do this.

“Today is the last day of my live trade room subscription and I wanted to write you and tell you thank you for the last two months in your live trade room. I have learned a lot from you. I also want to thank you for introducing me to Will and instructing me to stay focused on him in the live trade room since I primarily only trade Futures. Will is a great guy and he has helped me so much. He always answered all my questions and he was always there for me whenever I needed him and I cannot thank him enough. Both of you have dramatically changed the way I now day trade futures. I feel I have almost mastered Wills trading techniques, but none of it would have been possible if you did not tell me up front, even before I signed up for your course that Will was the guy to stay focused on in the live trade room because he was a great trader. You were not kidding with that statement. Will is the best trader I have ever seen. I am so happy I signed up for your course. I have been burned so much over the last 13 years purchasing other courses that I almost did not sign up, but I am very thankful now that I did and I am very thankful you told me Wills story about how he almost gave up. That story really inspired me because it almost sounded exactly like mine. Please thank Will again for me for all his help. I wish you both the best in the future. If you or Will ever need a favor, please do not hesitate to ask. If you want me to post my trades on the blog, please let me know. I am primarily trading Crude and I have been killing it as you saw today by my post in the trade room. Take care and thank you again Larry. Talk to you soon.”

Respectfully,
Nick in California

“I have mused a bit of late as to why your system/indicators work for me so much better than those I’ve tried in the past.

“Somewhat off and on, I’ve been at futures trading for just over two years and have yet to find a methodology that even comes close to yours, for me anyway. I’ve tried “key numbers”. I’ve tried “auction logic/volume profile” and even candlesticks.

“I’m still part of an “auction logic” chat that I had open last week (they did a “Go-To-Meeting” live/voice transmission) and there are some very sophisticated traders in the room. This was simultaneous with your chat. Here they were (last Tues, Wed, Thurs) complaining of the “chop” and inability to get a handle on a trade. Meanwhile, using the Power Cycle Model with Hugh’s custom indicators, I’m scalping one or two (ES) points per trade in the “chop” that seems so indecipherable to them. I mean, if you’re are trading 3 – 5 ES contracts and netting 5 to 10 ES points (not ticks) per day…..I mean, how bad is that?

“My academic background is in architecture and I’ve been a builder for nearly 35 years. Maybe, for me anyway, it’s the fact that your system is so “visual”, that it is not as much numbers based but charts. I don’t know, but it sure works for me.

“There are many out there “selling” methods. Did I mention “selling”? You, however, have actually done this for a living. Not selling people things, but TRADING for a living. Not selling people stocks, bonds, etc. as a stock salesman (broker). So many of these jokers….err, sorry, individuals claim to have these methodologies and/or systems but when it comes right down to it, they are salesmen (women) first and foremost that are really better at that, selling,….than at trading. That is why I would like to see you succeed and will do what I can to help you (and Hugh). Take care Larry and thank you for what you are doing.”

“I would like to thank you for the great product you have put together with your Power Cycle Day Trading Course. I retired approximately two years ago from a career in policing and began to pursue my passion for trading. I have been trading part time for a number of years and on a full time basis for the past two years. I have slowly progressed to the point that I was breaking even on a monthly basis. However I still had those days where everything lined up and I still would get thrashed and give back much of what I had earned.

“I continue to work hard and I am always looking for ways to improve. I attended one of your on-line seminars in March, 2012 while researching Options trading products and training courses. After the seminar I spent the better part of the weekend watching your short training videos located on YouTube. I was really impressed and purchased your course and trade room access. That was three weeks ago and I have now fully incorporated your trade model into my approach.

“I have found your method extremely accurate especially with entries. My entries have really tightened up which has negated the heat I would take on trades or the early stop outs. I currently trade the E-mini S&P (ES) and the E-mini Nasdaq (NQ) on an intraday basis.

“The other important point is that your course is not just for trading Options but is for trading Futures and Stocks outright. The model also uses indicators and settings that can be found in most charting platforms so a person doesn’t have to go out and spend hundreds and even thousands of dollars on the latest and greatest web offering being pushed my some marketing guy claiming to trade for a living. I highly recommend your program at “Options on the Open” to anyone who is looking for a professional trading model taught by someone who does trade for a living everyday live right along with the rest of us.”
– Raymond in Canada


“I have been trading for many years, equities, assorted option strategies, etc. I came to the conclusion about 1 year ago that–because of the volatility of market conditions in recent years–that I needed to decrease my time exposure to the market. This obviously meant that I would have to consider day trading. I also knew that I wanted to continue trading options for their many advantages–leverage, low capital requirements, diversity of strategies, availability of weekly options, etc.

“My problem was that I did not know how to combine these two ideas–day trading and options–and I was also not happy with the complexity of the technical indicators that I had been trained on, at least in part because day trading requires quick decisions and the complex of indicators that I had been using made that type of execution difficult.

“I began to try to develop my own scheme for combining these objectives, but I just could not get the right combination in place. What I did not realize was that this problem had already been addressed by Larry Gaines in his program called Options on the Open. In the end, I just decided to do a Google search on these two concepts, and, lo and behold, up popped Larry’s name and web site. I began snooping around his site and was instantly intrigued. The small investment required to buy his program and begin participating in his trading room was irresistible, so I jumped in. That was in September, 2011, and it has been a transformative experience.

“Larry’s program and approach was just the combination that I had been looking for: extremely accurate indicators that are relatively simple, a rigorous and disciplined trading approach, and great ideas for execution. A terrific bonus has been the camaraderie of the room, and the opportunity to learn from other really great traders. I actually look forward each day to the give and take, and Larry is always in teaching mode and ready to help all of the members, and in particular newcomers. I could not more highly recommend Larry’s program and participation in the trading room for anyone looking for a great system for day trading options. Just bring an open mind, a willingness to follow the rules of the system, and a dedication to mastering the techniques before committing real money. Larry, his program and the other room members will do the rest.”
– Hugh in California


“Hello Larry, I joined 2 weeks ago and started trading this week…I am only trading 1 contract now on crude futures and took 2 trades so far this week and I am up $420 per contract. Thanks for your help and the customized indicator package on the trading model is superb.
– Kris in Ohio


“I am enjoying following you all. For me I have worked in isolation since 2002, and done very badly! It’s great to be part of a community. The main two benefits amongst the many is the company of others that leads to me being able to be patient and wait for the situations to develop, instead of my usual gambling technique of holding a 7 and hoping it goes higher!!! Unfortunately I have to leave for the day but I would never have shorted Apple without listening to you, so I only did a very small put position, buying the 625′s. Bought 5 option contracts at $ 4.50 per contract and sold at $5.00 per contract two minutes later, before it peaked at $6.25 per contract on that little run at 9:40 AM EST! Looking forward to doing a lot more tomorrow, and already a much calmer environment for me listening in Larry, so thanks for an enjoyable start. Many thanks to you all. Taking an early bath for the Easter break. Made $1.2k today on 3 trades with the AAPL 620 calls, and one with the 630 puts. Have a good Easter all!”
– Stewart in Wales, U.K.


“Larry, I was in your room in the past and learned a lot from you. Your system is wonderful. I recently sent some childhood friends to you, David, Shelly, Harry and I also told a cousin about you. I totally endorse your system. In my opinion it is the best value in trading education for the money invested. Have a great day!”
– Gary in Arizona


“I have purchased a number of courses over the years but most of them simply did not work; they were good on theory only. I have obtained at least 300 books on trading but apart from very general information I could not find any material which explicitly showed me how to get into trades, how to follow along and how to get out with a nice profit. Only Options on the Open spells this material out very clearly and simply. I am so happy I found Options on the Open, it is well worth my money. I sincerely thank Mr. Gaines.”
– Phyllis in Canada


“Larry your trading system’s settings for crude futures are supernatural. They get me long at the bottom or short at the top with almost no false entries. 45 points or $450 per contract on just two trades today works fine for me, thanks to you Larry.”
– Nicholas in California


“Larry today I spent all day unsubscribing to all the emails I’ve been getting from different trading sites. I probably get 40 a day because I’m on everybody’s list but now I’m just concentrating on your trading methodology and the Power Cycle Trading Model and firing everybody else!”
– Kely in Florida


“Just a quick note to let you know how much I’m enjoying your entire trading program. For starters you have an easy to follow manner to accompany your method of trading. This makes learning a complicated subject easy to learn. Next, your Power Cycle Trading Model and Power Cycle Day Trading Model are easy to follow AND as you say “highly accurate”! – Finally I want to compliment your support staff member, Lydia. She has been very helpful and prompt. TOP NOTCH ORGANIZATION!”
– Mason in Washington


“I wanted to say that I have subscribed to other services using options and none of them provided the variety or educational value that your service provides. I really enjoy the service and the personal attention you bring to your clients. I do believe this is a value added service and you do an outstanding job for your members.”
– Kiran in Canada


“Thanks Larry for developing such a simple to use trading system that has helped me to get more winning trades. I have been very impressed and feel confidant following your system. I have gotten 80% successful trades and on my first CASH trades I made a 15% return! These are 5 points that I would like to share with you: 1. Your advance charting is simple to follow; 2. Your trade training courses is well designed with many sample trade charts; 3. Your virtual trading room is very interactive and exciting to follow; 4. I have experienced great synergy and friendly traders that share many of their trades at the virtual live trading session; 5. You have constantly gone over the trades that you just completed and have taught me the mindset of a good trader. I feel energized and I look forward to working with you for many profitable trades.”
– Mahbub in Texas


“Larry, I made $105 per contract or 30% on my very first WEEKLY Apple option day trade using your system! Made more on that trade than my paycheck last week. Already paid for my subscription on this one trade! THANK YOU!!!”
– Ben in Massachusettes


“I’ve been logged into the virtual trading room for the last two weeks. I live in Guam, so with the time difference I have to get up at midnight to trade and then go to work after that in the morning. So far it is well worth the sleep sacrifice for the excellent information you have provided. I am still virtual trading but improving very quickly. The virtual trading room, as well as both the Power Cycle Trading Model and Power Cycle Day Trading course, have been excellent.”
– Steve in Guam


“Options on the Open is a great trading program. Following the precise indicators that Larry has developed makes successful day trading easy. While I’ve traded credit spreads for years, I’ve enjoyed and profited from some exciting new strategies that have less risk and more reward. Larry is an excellent teacher and sticks to high probability trades…It’s a winner!!”
– Lee in Florida


” I have dabbled in the stock market for 20+ years, trading options for 5+ years and learning to day trade options since I signed up with Larry at Options On The Open, this past June, 2011. It was a tough go at first, breaking old habits.

“But watching Larry apply his technical analysis and trading strategy, buy and sell with such conviction and success intrigued me. I did more research, asked Larry many questions and eventually it all came together. Larry even provided tidbits of trading psychology and taught me trading rules he applied over years. Now, I combine my programming skills to technical analysis I learned from Larry, remove emotion and second guessing away from my trading to build my automated trading program(s). The results speak for themselves.”
– Lyle in Florida


“Larry, just want to say, you have created a great room which has attracted a lot of great guys, and marvelous traders as well. Just want to thank you again, cause I know it involves sacrifice to your own trading.”
– Hugh in California
