Option Strategies and Techniques That Really Work*

Some option strategies are so complicated that they don't really work in practice. In this session, Larry McMillan, editor and publisher of The Options Strategist will show you option strategies that DO work. Ones that have been making money consistently for some time, and ones geared to make money in a particular environment—such as a low-volatility environment, for example.

Strategies which will be encompassed in this Master Class:

  • Speculative strategies: use of put-call ratios; use of predictive tools, including seasonal patterns; option-based indicators
  • Quasi-arbitrage strategies based on relative interpretation ofoption volume and market action; summary of DVA recommendations
  • Non-directional strategies: the concept of expected return; selling options; neutral straddle buying, including hedged strategies using $VIX and $SPX derivatives in the same position; event-driven strategies based on earnings or FDA-related occurrences
  • Finally, the session will also stress strategies to avoid, or at least to be used with caution: bull and bear spreads, for example, which are often used too frequently.

Attendees will receive trial subscriptions to our newsletters.

*$299 per person if purchased by June 28, $349 per person if purchased after June 28. Includes refreshments.
