Ion Options

Ron Ianieri
Just before the crash of 1987 Ron Ianieri began his options career on the floor of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange. He worked for Cooper, Neff and Associates, a highly respected technical and analytical trading firm. During his career, Ron worked on both the Equity Options floor and the Foreign Currency Options floor as both a Market Maker and a Specialist. Ron was best known for his years spent as the Options Specialist in Dell Computer (DELL) in the early/mid 1990’s when DELL was one of the busiest equity options books ever.

Ron earned the respect of the Options floor for the development and teaching of his Option Trader Trainee Course. Ron now travels the world teaching individual investors the same Options Class he developed on the trading floor. Ron firmly believes that although individuals may not want to be market makers, they should have a market maker’s knowledge to insure consistent successful trading in the financial markets. 

Ron was a co-founder of Options University where he was the Chief Market Strategist and Sr. Option Trader. While there, Ron taught thousands of individual investors how to use options to generate higher profits while lowering risk in the same manner he taught option floor market makers in the past.

Ron then joined TycoonU and performed many of the same functions as he did at Options University.

Ron has now started his own options education company called Ion Options, LLC. There, he continues to teach option theory and strategy to individual, self-directed investors. In 2009, Ron authored the book “Options Theory and Trading” which is published by Wiley and Sons. Ron is scheduled to write another book during the summer of 2010 which will also be published by Wiley and Sons.

Ron is regularly seen on CNBC, CNBC Asia, Fox News, Fox Business News, Bloomberg Asia, and BNN for his market commentary. He is also frequently quoted in many financial publications and websites including,, Dow Jones, Market Watch, Barron’s, Wall Street Journal, ABC News, and countless radio talk shows.


"Not only is Ron very knowledgeable, but he is also a fantastic teacher, which is extremely important.... Although the markets are extremely volatile, it is still possible to make money following Ron's teachings. Thanks again Ron!"
