A few thoughts. I've been trading options pretty much full time.for 4 years and belong to several option trading groups.
If you find this helps I'd like to ask you to explain the logic in a few of the filters you've posted; my email is

INMHO. in best, is first, order.

The three platforms to consider are 1. Thinkorswim; 2 Options Express 3 Option Monster.

Courses vary in focus and quality. The CBOE ( has a wealth of free archived webinars on the basics and the popular trading strategies. One thing to think about is which kinds of trades you expect to do. If your thought is to do Speculative trades where you expect the price to move as you anticipate then one set of strategies apply. If you plan to do Income types of trades where the idea is to primarily capture Implied Volatility, Gamma and Theta and price movement is secondary, then another set of strategies apply.

A tour of CBOE and quick review of a few webinars on the basics should help put a basic perspective together.

Good education is expensive. Dan Sheridan offers a mentoring course focused on Income trading. Charles Cottle (Risk Doctor) and Discover Options ( offer courses that cover both Income and Speculative approaches.

Options are complicated and take more than a weekend study to get competent; so be patient.

Here's some links:

Hope that helps

Kevin: Clever approach. Have you considered adding GLD, TLT and maybe USO, and a US$ or a Euro etf to the symbol list to provide a counterbalance when the other ETF's are in a decline?
