Trading Around Earnings -- Dan Passarelli, CEO and Founder, Market Taker Mentoring, Inc.

As you are no doubt aware, market volatility, as measured by the VIX, has been all over the map, from a low of 10 last August to a high of 36 the day after Christmas and now settling back in a range of 14 to 16. To listen to the news media one would think the end of the world is upon us. But in reality this provides plentiful opportunities for savvy option traders!

Our guest presenter, Dan Passarelli, has developed a series of systems to make spotting these opportunities simple and trading them even easier.  Dan has identified three critical “game plans” that can have the greatest impact on your trading in 2019. One of the strategies Dan will be talking about involves a proprietary earnings trading technique. With a new earnings seasons approaching, this technique will provide valuable skills to capitalize on earnings trades.

Dan will present an easy to follow blueprint and provide hard data showing how and why these techniques work. You’ll leave the presentation well-prepared with new skills to master the market as we enter the next earnings season.
