SVOG February Meeting

Thursday, February 11, 2016 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm


Synthetics, Volatility and Trading Options for Income

Many traders think 'income trading' is simple.  Sell options and forget about the trade.  Others contend that one can adjust their way out of any bad trade that is out there.  Basically, there are a lot of traders that are under the impression that 'income trading' is easy.  

The truth is that is extremely difficult to do well.  Most traders end up not making money some cant make money from day one,  others make money for a while and then get 'clipped' all at once, finally some traders put on good trades and then constantly tinker creating trades with little return given the time.

In this two hour crash course Mark Sebastian, founder of Option Pit LLC and Chief Investment Officer of Karman Line Capital will discuss the all the facets that traders need to understand in order to put themselves in a position to succeed.  Mark will cover:

  • The power of synthetic relationships
  • Will discuss volatility and how it should form positions
  • Proper trading entry a for condors and butterflies with weekly and monthly options
  • Tricks to managing risk and adjusting flies and condors
  • And, if there is time, Trading VIX, VXX and other volatility ETN's

Traders will leave with a clear understanding of what they need to know to become a successful income trader and a few tricks of the trade that will produce actionable trades and immediate results in their bottom line.

Mark will also give away access to the Option Pit website to a few lucky attendees for as much as 6 months.
