    Thank you. I learned a little more from this 10 minute video. I did not realized that we could customize the layout on the greeks on the trade or analyze tab. I have been going from the greeks tab and switching to the open interest and volume. Thank you again, I do hope you do more. I believe there are some gaps in my knowledge of TOS, which I would appreciate being brought to light.

    Matt so far this financial education I signed up for has been a great experience. This simple video is so helpful along with all the videos I have watched, all the articles I have read on Tackle Trading. This is freaking awesome.

    Thanks Matt. Always appreciate the extras you guys give us. Really appreciate these TOS videos. It’s a great platform but overwhelming and your videos help clarify things.


    Moves a bit fast for the newbie. I’ll just have to review it a few times. I did catch a few items that had previously eluded me.
    One other thing: Did you really say Funner? LOL. Sorry. My friends have called me a grammar nazi on occasion.

    Overall great video. Great help.

    Thanks Matt!
