Empowering a Rebellion of Traders

Market Rebellion is on a mission to challenge the status quo of trading and investing, by empowering independent investors with trading education, content and tools so that they can trade with confidence.

About Market Rebellion

Jon and Pete Najarian created Market Rebellion to form an options trading community designed to empower retail investors. Based on our team’s extensive experience as professional traders and instructors, we knew we needed to be more than just educators and mentors. We needed to create a paradigm shift and provide access to professional trading tactics for the independent trader.

So, whether you’re looking for trade ideas crafted by pros, in-depth trading education to harden your knowledge, or face-to-face sessions with hand-picked coaches — there’s something here for every trader, beginner to seasoned veteran.

Guided Trading Services

Our guided trading services don’t just give you trade ideas, they help you master a disciplined process of identifying and managing trades in a live market environment.

From our flagship Unusual Options Activity services to momentum trading with options, premium collection strategies, swing trading on technical analysis, and more — we’ve got trade ideas to match your timeframe and goals.

Plus, each service is headed by a lead analyst with 20-30 years of trading experience.

Trade like a pro, by trading with pros.

How Market Rebellion Started: A Rebellious Beginning

Jon and Pete Najarian earned their stripes on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) where they dominated the days of open outcry. The brothers soon pioneered the Unusual Options Activity trading strategy and developed their patented Heat Seeker™ algorithm designed to follow the Smart Money.

After co-founding optionMONSTER and tradeMONSTER, the original Rebels joined forces with the legendary trading instructor Ron Ianieri in 2016 to launch Investitute (now Market Rebellion) with a common goal in mind: to help individual investors like you navigate the treacherous waters of the markets.

Why? It's Simple.

Market Rebellion’s founders knew Wall Street was far from an even playing field for everyone. They saw it as their duty to instill professional knowledge and insights in individual retail traders like you to help close the gap with institutions and insiders.
