Even More Efficient Options Trading
With the transition to ‘Free’ Commissions in early October, we will look at the impact this cost savings will have on the markets and trading efficiency. We’ve updated our analysis & examples with these cost savings and will re-visit these findings. Carl will share from his 20+ years of Options Trading experience methods of using Technical Analysis and common chart patterns to identify an ‘edge’, then matching that opportunity with an appropriate Options strategy. This presentation is not an introduction to Options but will focus on the effective application of Options Trading. Having a basic understanding of Options will help a great deal with following this brief yet information packed presentation.
