Ultimate Trading Solutions – Kim Reilly
Kim Reilly is believed by many to be one of Australia’s foremost options super-traders. His most notable trade was in April 2003 when he netted $3.9 million profit on AMP put options. This of course, was more the exception than the rule, but people always love to tell us about “the day they caught the big one”. From an option trading perspective though, the positive part is that according to his promoters, he has a very high successful strike rate.
Kim Reilly believes that 91 percent of trading success is about psychology. I wasn’t sure about this when I first heard it, but I have learned from personal experience that in the end, the decision to trade with real money at the right time all comes back to what’s going on inside your head, so there seems to be some truth in this. You can know all the rules, but doing it in a completely relaxed manner, like you’re just playing a game and don’t care, is another matter. When real money is on the table, it can affect your decision making ability.
Kim has been described as a pioneer stock market presenter. This is mainly because many of today’s educators have modelled their information on his course and some even began their own education by attending one of his seminars. Some even say he has set the standard for stock market and options trading education.
Kim Reilly has produced an option trading DVD home study course. The course consists of 31 written modules in Adobe Acrobat format, plus 9 DVD movie presentations by the man himself. It claims to provide the A-Z of basic option trading education, which is about right because it doesn’t focus on the more advanced option strategies such as spreads, strangles, straddles etc. It’s pretty much a “buy the option and sell it for a profit within a week” approach. The course first expounds all the elements of options and then teaches how to identify, using charting techniques, the entry signals for short term trading opportunities.
The strategy is divided into two stages. The first level involves harmonising weekly and daily trends from charts so that short term moves can be recognized. The second level uses a selection of “confirmation” indicators which validate these moves when they’re about to occur. Apply exchange traded options to the mix and you have a recipe for highly leveraged profit potential.
The third essential ingredient to the strategy is money management. Those who promote the Kim Reilly strategy claim you can expect an average of at least 9 out of 31 successful trades, or better. It’s what you do with the other 3 that can make all the difference between success and failure. Recognizing the importance of stop loss limits is vital to becoming a profitable options trader. This is part of the psychology that Kim Reilly is at pains to emphasise. In his own words, it is essential to have an “abundance mentality” first, if it’s abundance you want.
Kim Reilly has developed a trading system that became his own foundation for financial independence. Since then, he has shared his methods to over 61,111 people. I once heard him say at a seminar, that after his million dollar trade, he gave it all away to a good cause and started over again, knowing he had the skill to get it all back again. Wouldn’t it be nice to have that sort of confidence!

Kim Reilly was born in rural Tasmania in 1968. After leaving school, he embarked on a number of
unsuccessful business ventures before joining the Australian Navy.
During this time Kim learnt the importance of education and eventually went on to become an
officer and navigator. When he received a major wake-up call from a friend and mentor who made
him question the direction of his life, he took immediate action and resigned from the navy the
Kim’s stock market career began when he bought an $8,000 trading program, and he quickly learnt
an important lesson: don’t invest in something you do not understand. After this initial
setback, he launched into education and invested over $250,000 in books, seminars and programs
about trading, but didn’t put this knowledge into practise until he found someone who agreed to
train him as an options trader.
After losing his initial trading bank twice, and returning to work, Kim finally found the key to
trading success. Over the next five years he made more than $3 million from trading options,
including his famous single trade that made $1.8 million.
Trading success allowed Kim to embark on his real passion of educating others. He has presented
his strategies to over 65,000 people and delivered keynote presentations for Anthony Robbins
seminars and Rene Rivkin’s clients. He once presented to more than 8,000 people in a single day.
Kim ‘retired’ from serious trading three years ago, starting a completely different journey in
his life, financially and spiritually. He lives on the Central Coast of New South Wales, has
three children and is writing several books on trading, psychology.
