Schaeffers Research Investment Options

I'm back into [trading options] for retirement income and have had a couple very good suggestions from the bulletin. My first one, a couple months ago, hit for a 106% gain in a week, and then in the first week of April 2017, I bought some call options on AKS … and sold on Fri. at 1.06 for a 44% gain in 2 days. Time to start paying attention better...thanks for the service!

Upon subscribing to your offer, you will receive a purchase confirmation. Within 15 minutes, you will receive our welcome email with your user login ID and temporary password. You can follow this link here and login into your account where you will see any open trades for your subscription. If you have multiple subscriptions, you will see all of your trades, commentary and bulletins in the same area.

Once you have subscribed to a trading subscription, you will have access to your personal account specialist whose name will appear in the right-hand corner of your MY ACCOUNT area. This dedicated specialist is there to help you on your trading journey and will be your personal point of contact, giving you direct access to one person for all of your trading needs.

Depending on when you subscribe to Schaeffer's Investment Research's subscriptions, you may not immediately get trade alerts until one is initiated by our research team. Any currently open trades at the time of your purchase, will be available to you in your MY ACCOUNT area. If you're subscribing to the Option Advisor, your alerts will automatically be sent at the beginning of the next month after your purchase- with open trades also available in your account.  Some of our trading services offer trades at optimal times, so there may be brief time periods without a trade alert and some periods where you may receive multiple alerts at one time, depending on the market opportunities.

If you are having issues logging into your account or have not received your welcome email, be sure to check your spam folder and add Schaeffer's Research to your contact list so that any future alerts and notifications will be delivered promptly. You may call us or email us with any further questions using the links at the bottom of this page.


New subscribers will receive an email with account login information just after signing up for any of Schaeffer's Trading Services or Publications. You can view and manage your profile and all of your subscriptions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by logging in here. Along with any of our premium services, you will receive access to extensive online trading education courses and the Option Advisor Handbook, just to get you started. All of your trade recommendations, commentary and trade recommendation can be accessed in our easy-to-use subscriber interface.

You'll never miss a trade because included with any of our premium services is our email alert notification system that will email you when there has been a new update with your service- you don't have to worry about missing a beat! If you are subscribing to a real-time alert service, the trade information will be securely sent to your inbox and appear in your MY ACCOUNT area.

All of your trade recommendations breaks down each trade, step-by-step, with detailed explanations of why the trade would be a good recommendation. Also included are the potential risks and market behaviors that may be associated with the trade. You also have the access to track all of your trade recommendations under your MY ACCOUNT profile. Every trade is accompanied with an email reminder, notifying you when a new trade or trade update has been issued with your subscription.

Once you subscribe to any of our services, you may login with the username and password provided in an email following your purchase. Because we are committed to giving you the best opportunity to profit, we only recommend trades when the circumstances based on the strategy have manifested, so you may not immediately see a new recommendation right away. Our programs are designed to work with the market in its current condition, selecting trades when there is a value opportunity and not by a date on a calendar. This means in some cases, a recommendation may come in "clusters" or there may be a short gap in time before a recommendation becomes available. Since there are many opportunities in options investing, we guarantee that the number of trades associated with your subscription, will be fulfilled.
