Title: Trading in a High Volatility Environment

You have to have been sleeping under a rock somewhere not to have noticed that volatility is at exceptionally high levels. The VIX hit a high of 85 and change on March 18th. And while it has been steadily coming down over the past 2 months it is still above 25. The “talking heads” have been railing about how terrible this is for investors. But isn’t high volatility exactly what option traders live for? So exactly how does one go about trading options in a high volatility market?

Andrew Giovinazzi, COO of Option Pit, will answer this and other questions in his presentation dealing with trading in volatile markets. Andrew will examine exactly what volatility is and how it should be factored into your strategy selection. He will demonstrate how to analyze volatility and how to set up a trade to put the impact of volatility and the probabilities in your favor.

This promises to be an exceptional meeting and one that is a must if you are struggling with your trading or just want to sharpen your edge and squeeze a few extra dollars, or more, out of each trade.
