Here's what we're planning for the September simulcast:

Session 1: Debit Verticals

9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. CT

We'll start the simulcast with a talk about option strategies that involve simultaneous sales and purchases of options, initially resulting in a debit. You'll learn about:

  • The goals of debit verticals
  • Bull call spreads and bear put spreads
  • Position management


Session 2: Taking Advantage of Large Market Moves

10:15 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. CT 

We'll follow up debit verticals with a presentation on strategies for larger moves in the market. Specifically, we plan to:

  • Review the iron condor
  • Discuss how to build the long (iron) condor
  • Review the iron butterfly
  • Detail how the long (iron) butterfly is constructed


Session 3: Three-Way Directional Strategies

11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. CT

Our simulcast will wrap up with a look at how investors can incorporate multi-option strategies when they have a particular view about the direction of a stock or ETF. In this session, we'll discuss how to combine simple options strategies into a more complex and aggressive position:

  • Bullish strategies - short put spread with long call
  • Bearish strategies - short call spread with long put
  • Options strike prices selection


Throughout the simulcast, we'll enhance your understanding with a series of examples using P&L calculations and discussions about both the risk and the reward of investing with options. Don't miss this unique learning event - sign up today!
