Nicole Wachs welcomes this premiere options brand to the All-Stars team

This fall, we're expanding our All-Stars roster with a great options-education brand:  Schaeffer's Research

Schaeffer's Editorial team are seasoned market-watchers with a particular focus on options activity. From basic puts and calls to advanced spread strategies, the Schaeffer's staff has seen it all -- and is more than happy to break it down for you, in beginner-friendly language, from a unique contrarian perspective. Schaeffer's analysis has been quoted in multiple financial publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Reuters, and USA Today. We plan to feature their daily commentary on stocks, options, the broader market, and everything in between on a regular basis. 


We're also happy to welcome Bernie Schaeffer, founder and CEO of Schaeffer's Investment Research, as a new All-Star. He is the author of The Option Advisor: Wealth-Building Techniques Using Equity & Index Options, and his Option Advisor newsletter celebrated its 30th anniversary this year. Bernie is widely recognized within the options trading community for his extensive knowledge of equity and index options, investor sentiment, and market timing. He’s also known for pioneering the Expectational Analysis® methodology, which combines traditional fundamental and technical indicators with sentiment data to uncover contrarian trading opportunities. Bernie’s insights have been featured in Barron’s, Bloomberg, Forbes, and Nightly Business Report, amongst others.

We hope you'll enjoy lively, actionable All-Stars commentary from this great new contributor!
