Session Descriptions:

Understanding Greeks: The option "greeks" are talked about a lot, but do you know how they can affect an option's price? This presentation will take what some think is a complex topic and turn it into something easy to understand.

Rolling With the Markets: Position Adjustments with Calls: This seminar will focus on the call buyer and features a range of alternative strategies available when market situations dictate changes to the investor's original forecast. The course will cover defensive call rolling, as a means to maintain your original forecast as well as risk-reducing spread tactics. The attendee will also learn how to convert a long call position to a spread, calculate a new break-even point, limit risk and repair a call purchase that is underperforming in expectations.

Option Skew and Put-Call Parity: Much like the Greeks, these topics often intimidate investors. Join Dan Passarelli of Market Taker Mentoring LLC as he demystifies these frequently misunderstood topics. Get a handle on skew and gain some trading confidence with a better understanding of the call/put relationship.

Options Strategies from the Trading Floor:  Dan Passarelli, a former trader, discusses options strategies that he used regularly when he traded on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange. This session presents an unique opportunity for investors to gain perspective on the benefits and risks of certain strategies from a professional trader.
