Women in Trading: ETFs to Measure the Market (and Make Money)*

November 12, 2018, 9:35 am - 10:20 am

Focus: ETFS

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are a convenient way to diversify investments. Since key market indices are tracked by ETFs such as SPY and IWM, we can use ETFs to measure the performance of the market. This measurement can tell us which areas of the market are doing well, and which to avoid. By investing in the better performing areas, we stand a chance to make more money than buy and hold of a single broad market ETF. Even better, it gives us a plan to avoid holding the bag when the market drops. If it sounds simple, that's because it is. Come to this presentation to learn about an easy strategy that is currently beating the market.

Women in Trading: How to Create an Inexpensive Hedge to a Stock Portfolio Using Options on Futures*

November 12, 2018, 12:40 pm - 1:25 pm


Purchasing put options as portfolio insurance can be expensive and is often ineffective; in a longstanding bull market well-intentioned attempts to protect a stock portfolio can easily do more harm than good. There is a better way to hedge the price risk of stocks by utilizing preferable margin treatment in an options on futures account. Specifically, traders can execute a risk reversal strategy in which put options on the E-mini S&P 500 are purchased and call options in the same expiration month are sold to finance the cost of the insurance policy. The result is cheap, or even free, portfolio insurance! Join us to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this strategy.
