Sessions 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.

Moving from Option Theory to Real World Application Academics can discuss the finer points of the Binomial Pricing Model over the Black-Scholes Model in the classroom, but how does this knowledge benefit the retail options trader?  Join Shawn Howell of Pro Market Advisors as he discusses real world applications of Put/Call Parity and Options Skew as they relate to strategy selection and determining what side of the trade to be on.

Trends and Volatility: Analysis for the Option Trade: Option traders understand that every trade must be analyzed in terms of both trend and volatility. If you ignore either one, you're missing a big part of your trade. This closing session by the ProMarket Advisors will present some key technical strategies for your analysis. Designed for beginners through advanced, you'll learn about more than the technical strategy - you'll learn about the story behind the analysis. Sharpen your skills with price charts so that you're prepared for your next option trade!
