Scott Bauer, Founder and CEO of Prosper’s Options Trading Accelerator


Goldman Sachs. JP Morgan. Bank of America. Morgan Stanley. All high powered firms whose traders have dominated the options market for years.

Options trading has become so competitive that most everyday investors have given up on trying to compete with the resources of Wall Street.

But after we spoke with this ex-Goldman Sachs trader and founder of Prosper’s Options Trading Accelerator, we’d learned that would be a huge mistake.


How Everyday Investors Are Crushing Wall Street Thanks To This Ex-Goldman Trader


Meet Scott Bauer.

Scott is the former Goldman Sachs Vice President of Equities who has been working on trading floors since he graduated from college.

He was the first trader to ever trade Amazon options back in 1996, and used to trade Coca-Cola Options against Warren Buffett.

After spending years using his proprietary trading strategies for the big shots on Wall Street, Scott decided to make a change.

He wanted to level the playing field.

We went to Chicago to visit Scott to learn more.

As Scott told us,

“It’s completely unfair how much of an edge Wall Street has over the average investor. It’s almost impossible to compete unless you utilize the proper strategies


Enter Prosper’s Options Trading Accelerator .

The Options Trading Accelerator program is a live, strategy-based program where Scott teaches everyday investors the same proprietary options trading strategies he used for years on Wall Street, as well as every single one of his current trades.

The best part?

Traders can copy Scott’s exact trades, in real-time.

According to Scott,

“Every student is given access to our exclusive live trading room, where they can copy my picks and strategies in my live signal trading room

“For those who work during the day, I send out every one of my trades via email so they can still sneak the trades in during work”


A lot of his students love this feature, such as Samir Solloway who told us,

“Honestly, joining Prosper Trading has been the best investment I have ever made.

“I started about 4 years ago and the investment paid for itself in about a month.


Copying The Strategies Used By Wall Street’s Elite To Beat The Market


If you follow Scott onto the trading floor of the CBOE, traders view him as a legend.

According to fellow options trader Mike Schorr,

“I’ve been trading options for over 15 years and have never met someone with the track record of wins like Scott

“Scott has an uncanny ability to structure trading strategies with an incredible risk-reward ratio. He only gets into most trades that have at least a 2:1 win ratio, with the potential to double your money with minimal risk


From what we’ve learned, this is the key to Scott’s success.

In his Options Trading Accelerator, Scott teaches students to utilize this exact type of methodology.

According to Scott,

“The problem with Wall Street is they always go for the maximum gain with options. That’s just plain stupid. The secret with options to structure trades where are odds are set in your favor.

“We work with a lot of people that are close to retirement, and the last thing they would want is a big loss that hurts their retirement savings”

Scott is well known for his market-beating trading strategies he previously developed back as a VP at Goldman Sachs.

Back then, they were only used by Wall Street’s rich and elite.

Now, Scott is teaching everyone how to utilize these same strategies, some of which logged gains of over 400% in less than a day.

Why Personalization Is The Secret To Executing Successful Options Trades

After researching multiple trading programs out there, we came to the conclusion that there was one main thing missing from most of them:




That’s why we were quite shocked to see how personalized the Options Trading Accelerator was.

According to Scott,

I interact with our students on a daily basis, answering questions, better explaining strategies, etc. That’s what makes our program so unique.”

“I want each and every one of my students to get as good as me.”


We spoke with one of his students, Rick Weiss, who agreed.

“I just asked a question this morning and received an hour of instruction from Scott which might as well have been one on one.

“Being as new as I am I quickly became very relaxed as they treat even the newest of students like they are their most important.”


Unlike other trading programs which are more focused on getting paying students rather than getting good results, Scott’s program requires each potential new student trader to go through an application process to allow Scott to determine if they are a good fit.

According to Scott,

“It’s extremely important to find the right person who would be a good fit for the program and our proprietary trading strategies. That’s why we have each potential new student go through our application process.”

“We encourage EVERYONE to apply though, and have trained some excellent traders who are in their 70s in retirement, to students fresh out of college. The diversity of our student traders allows us to develop even better results.”


Interested candidates can submit a brief application on their site here, and we’ve noticed that they recently started giving each applicant access to 1 or 2 of students best trading strategies.
