    Agree with Wes B. Tony is a good presenter and thinks and acts like a trader. So, I don't think it wasn't that he didn't know what levels of spot/vol/duration of where to put the strangles on; I just think it wasn't asked by the interviewer for whatever reason or oversight. Pls for trade ideas, just paste on the ceiling or clipboard of the interviewer the following 6 questions in 60 seconds for all trades: Entry, Target Price, Stop level, Catalyst, Timeframe, Risks to the Trade. Its so easy/basic, and think this makes trades real..otherwise, in the words of Gordon Gekko, "its just conversation".

    In fairness, I think you need to address the long vol structure more specifically. Are you buying strangles? How far out? What strikes? In my experience, when trading options it's easy to be right but still not make money because your timing is slightly off. If you buy a 1 month strangle and you get the move with 1 week left you likely still lose money

    Hey Tony; nice job on describing your oil view. I would have also liked you to have spent two minutes following up on your bullish copper call from April, when you stated on RV that you were a buyer at $2.93. It's now $2.72. Please address this and where you're exiting the trade. Thanks.

      I believe most "Trade Ideas" also include a stop out level in the trade description. While I have not watched all of Tony's videos, he has not made a trade yet without including a stop in the ones I've watched.

      Yeah, I commented on that video. To think there was going to be Chinese "demand" was a total miscalculation. Instead of just having one person give a "trade idea," there should be two, three people discussing their ideas. Getting these one sided trade ideas in short form kind of underserved the subscriber.

    But is China importing oil from USA, that is very important if you are targeting WTI or Brent. WTI could start to build if China isn't buying as much from USA.

    Why it takes 6 days from filming to publishing?
