Usman Ashraf

Case Study


Usman Ashraf is a self-made options trader from Brooklyn who has worked hard to carve out a unique position in the stock trading industry. Usman Ashraf grew up in Brooklyn until high school then moved to Staten Island. After some time, he went to China and attended China’s Medical University for five years until financial issues got a bit rough, and he decided to move back to NY. Usman aimed to achieve his goals as an aspiring trader through his dedication and commitment to trading. 

Once Usman started learning more and more about stocks, he met other traders who had so many questions he could help with. It has turned into a business where all he wants is to help people like him who started off knowing nothing but are passionate and devoted to putting in the time and hard work to educate themselves and learn how to be successful traders.

Usman is the successful mentor and owner of his business brand “OptionHub.” It is for other traders to learn more about stock trading. The goal is to help in any areas of trading people may struggle with and achieve the highest success possible. They provide close mentorship, immense knowledge, and guidance at every step while making live trades. Usman’s road to becoming an options trader was also not so straightforward. If it weren’t for his struggle and passion for trading, he would have been stuck at a medical school struggling with learning medicine. 

According to Usman, “Devotion, time, studying and reading go into being where he is today. It’s important to be educated and aware of what you did wrong and what you need to work on to improve—constantly being active and pushing myself to get up even after bad days to try again in succeeding even if it’s a small gain”.
