“I just wanted to say thank you so much to you and Sherri for all your help, effort and enthusiasm for helping aspiring traders like myself become profitable. I had spent so much money and experienced such frustration for 3 years prior to finding out about you, and I cannot tell how much my life has changed for the better. I realize it is early days and as you say, the markets have exceptional for these strategies, so I won’t get ahead of myself. Just the fact that I have managed to “buy” my own time back and start feeling the confidence in myself to trade consistently and experience the reward of following a plan and having the support of the community you guys have created has truly been a life changing experience for me. Thank you.”
– David from South Africa
“It is difficult to write a testimonial for John Locke, but not for the reasons one would imagine. When you start writing all the superlatives, the natural reaction of someone reading the testimonial is to think this cannot all possibly be true. All I can tell you is that every word is true. John is truly one of the best educators/mentors in the business. He not only provides a theoretical analysis and base for option trading, but he is personally an active trader trading his own money and knows the realities and actual nuances of the market. Taking a program from John is always a rewarding and educational experience. Not only is the material presented in a clear understandable fashion, but real world examples are provided. The great thing is that the education does not end with the end of the program. John is always available to answer questions and respond to emails, as well as providing mentoring services. I have never worked with anyone as accessible as John and who truly wants to help you learn and progress as much as John does. John is not all about the money, but is about your learning and becoming more successful as an options trader. If you train and learn with John, you will not be disappointed.”
-Jeffrey from Florida
“Once you finally realize off-the-shelf option strategies don’t work over the long-term you then start the true process of becoming an evolved trader. John picks you up here and takes you deeper into the realm of real sustainable success. John’s system is all about dynamic trading not static trades with binary outcomes. There is no more need to “strategy hop” from one flavor-of-the-month to the next. Simply stated, John has taught me not only how to fish, but also how to create a time tested market Edge through the skill of adaptability.
In many ways, trading is a journey of personal discovery. Attributes that make you successful in other endeavors often work against you in trading. John recognizes this as well as a host of psychological challenges that trading can often trigger. His approach to trading finally ended the constant erosion of my crucial mental capital. This alone opened up the doors to trading longevity and rock solid confidence.
John is also a true inspiration. He comes from a non-trading, non-finance background and has essentially lived the dream. He has walked in the same footsteps as all novice traders to this point. Through elite observation of option behavior and good old fashioned hard work, John has developed a method of trading that will allow you to stop chasing the latest education and truly start trading for a living.”
-Stephen from Texas
“To be an elite options trader, you need to understand three main things: Options, the Market and Yourself. I spent a lot of time, money and effort exploring other avenues, learning on my own, trading other systems, joining communities, watching webinars, etc. While I had modest success, I wasn’t sure WHY I was making money and, more importantly, why I was losing money when a trade lost.
Frustrated, I asked for advice from a respected senior trader. He recommended John.
I bought John’s programs, started mentoring with him and never looked back. No more blundering around, hoping to find the best trade for me, and making mistakes along the way. John’s programs are a direct path from Start (including goals, risk tolerance, personality profile, financial allocations and requirements, and much more) to Finish (profitable consistent trading), and his mentoring put me in the fast lane.
The amount of insight he has into how options REALLY work – not just theoretical or hypothetical concepts – is astonishing. How does he know what he knows? Because he consistently trades significantly sized positions. These aren’t paper trades or trades that seem like a good idea; they’re trades he puts real (big) money behind, every month, and he isn’t afraid to share all his results.
The programs are excellent but one-on-one mentoring with John is where I really started to understand why trades work the way they do. I never wanted to blindly follow a trade, I wanted to really UNDERSTAND it. John understands trading – and this is the highest praise of all.
The best part: I’m never surprised. With my improved understanding of Market movements, I can sleep well at night knowing the most probable position my trade will be in the next day but still have an adjustment plan if I’m completely wrong.
No matter what happens, I know how to deal with it because it’s part of my plan. This peace of mind is critical as I continue to grow the size of my trades.
If you truly want to understand the Market, how Options are traded, are willing to put in the effort to learn and are open to concepts that may challenge you, seriously consider John’s programs and mentoring. He’s the best!”

“I have been trading and investing for about 20 years. During the incredible bull market of the 90s I was selling covered calls which I ended up calling stop gain orders. Just as the party was coming to an end I started to learn the CANSLIM method and the ensuing market crash took the wind out of my sails. I continued to trade stocks with modest success until 2009 when I was introduced to option trading. I started with iron condors. I read everything I could get my hands on and I did a very expensive mentoring program. I did lots of research to find positions where I supposedly had an edge and for a while it worked. I continued to search for something that would provide a safe and profitable way to trade. One day I found myself on the SMB website. I watched all of the promotional videos and when I saw John present the M3 I said to myself this is how I want to trade. Using Johns method allows me to feel in control of the trade and be very profitable. I no longer need to beg the market to change direction when it goes against me because I can create and adjust my position so that all but historical price movement is a ho hum event. My trading philosophy now is that it is my job to keep the position safe and the systems job is to decide when and how much profit I get. The M3 videos provided a great foundation but my trading really took off when I did one on one coaching and attended the M21 program live. I just returned from the APM program which I expect will boost my results even more. As opposed to all the other trading education I have had these methods work and John is truly committed to your success not just your tuition”
– Bob from Florida
“I purchased this course for a couple of reasons. I do trade the M3 however, I have a full time job, so I can not manage multiple trades of this type. So I am thinking these strategies will work for my smaller accounts. Also I think this is a great way to introduce my Wife and 2 teenage kids into the options world without blowing them away. Thank you Seth, SMB and especially John.”
“John has been an integral part of my education as a trader, a true mentor to me. What is so great about John is that he focuses on teaching the craft of trading from the strategic, to the tactical to the emotional. The best teachers I have had in my life always display passion for what they do and generally are one of the best at their craft and John fits that bill to a tee. His journey as a trader, from total novice to one of the best options traders in the world is inspiring and as he puts it “repeatable”. What is great is he doesn’t just give book or theoretical examples but pulls from his vast past and current trade experience. Trading can be frustrating at times and having someone guide you through the harder times is extremely helpful and John is incredibly transparent with his good, bad, and ugly trades. One of the unique qualities about John is he doesn’t talk about how easy trading is, like quite a few other “gurus”, but gives a clear road map for people who are passionate about trading and are ready to do the work to be great. His programs are incredibly robust but really just the tip of the iceberg to what he has taught me as an aspiring world-class trader.”
– Ryan from Tennessee
“Before John and learning his strategies I was a hit and miss trader. After learning from John I have been consistently profitable and a more confident trader. John’s a great guy that truly cares about his students’ success, a rarity in this business.”
– Jarrod from Oklahoma
“I have been trading options for 10 years. Never successful. Being to local trading seminar and Las Vegas. Never successful. A lot of information was given but the how to is still lacking for individual trader. Nobody to blame except myself. Then found John.
He is my plug to my leaking account. Thanks John. Without you I would have given up trading totally after preserve for 10 years and losing lots of money.”
“Spending time with John has greatly reduced my learning curve and helped me become a consistently profitable trader.”
-Tom from New Jersey
“If you want to take your trading to the top level of retail options trading, then Locke In Your Success is the only choice – period.”
– Stephen from Texas
“I have been working with John for only a few months and he has already helped me become a much better options trader. I have tried a large number of option income strategies with mixed success. John’s butterfly trading strategies produce a very good return with managed risk.”
– Bryan from Illinois
“When it comes to the design of clever set-piece trading strategies, John’s work is pure genius. John has the ability to take something very complex and make it accessible to the less experienced trader. John also works extensively with the all-important “soft factors” of psychology, emotions and discipline. John has a great feel for the tape, and I always pay attention to what he says about market conditions and direction. Many of us in our various option trading communities are grateful to John for his help and leadership.”
– Phil from Texas
“Working with John has helped immensely in my development as a trader. He has deep knowledge of Options concepts and strategies as well as great comprehension of the challenges any retail trader will face in these volatile markets. His trade planning methodology is detailed and extremely well thought out. I have really benefitted from working with him on becoming a more knowledgeable and well rounded trader.”
– Erik from Massachusetts
“Over the past 4 years I have been trading and as every beginner I ran around in circles wasting time and money, I had all the desire but what I felt I was really getting nowhere. It was like a light going on when I found John and his style of trading Options, it has been the key to opening the door for my success and financial future”
“John has helped me with trading concepts, choosing the right trading style and developing a trading plan, technical analysis and goal setting. For the first time in my investing career I feel confident about trading and have realized consistent and additional monthly income. I can honestly say that my results over the past year would not have been possible without John’s coaching. If you are serious about improving your trading, then “Locke in Your Success” is definitely the best option I have experienced.”
– Matt from Massachusetts
“Just finished watching the video you did this past Wednesday where you reviewed the May June Bearish Butterfly trades. I’ve been trading this strategy for the past 6 months with great success, thanks to you. Appreciate you sharing the knowledge. This has completely turned around my options trading success! Keep up the great work.”
“Hi John, I’d like to drop you a note to thank you for your advice and help when I first started trading M3 butterfly. So far, I have achieved phenomenal results. I know there are still a lot to learn, but M3 and your generosity has profound impact to me as option trader.”
– Vincent from Singapore
“Hi John, Just to let you know, you did an awesome job on the rock trade system. I have finished going thru the videos one time and it’s very very good. I really like the way that you have crafted the trades together into one seamless system. This is wonderful.”
– Dave from Washington
“I just wanted to drop you a quick line and say THANK YOU for all your help in teaching me how to become a better trader.
– Kevin from Arizona
“I had no idea how to trade – but I knew I wanted to learn and be successful. John Locke’s programs really gave me the tools I needed, and the one-on-one coaching delivered the confidence to do it on my own. Since starting, I’ve made incredible gains, and I’m on my way to the retirementI want. I’ve definitely locked in my success!”
– Dave from Minnesota
“The methods John teaches are extraordinary. They allow you to be in control of the trade.”
– Bob from Florida
– Vincent in Singapore
“His strategies work because he has such a good innate feel for the multi-dimensional interplay of price, volatility, and the Greeks. John has the ability to take something very complex and make it accessible to the less experienced trader. John also works extensively with the all-important “soft factors” of psychology, emotions and discipline.
“John has made option trading a pleasurable and exciting experience. He has taken the fear and intimidation out a complex and previously inaccessible type of trading by breaking it down into understandable and more importantly, useable strategies that will allow trading in and adaption to any market condition. I consider myself fortunate to have crossed his path and now know that I have been given everything needed to succeed.”
