Presentation Topic : Options: Taking advantage of Time and Volatility

Volatility can make trading difficult, with mixed signals and wild swings. Yet, it is an understanding of volatility that is crucial to effectively trading options. In this insightful presentation, Paul will be demonstrating how different option strategies can be used in periods of different levels of volatility, remaining in the market where other non-options traders would have been kicked out of the trade (several times) and packed up their bags along time ago. He will also introduce his favoured strategies, the double bull spread and the double bear spread.
