Trading the Risk Profile -- Dennis Wong, Private Trader & Director, SVOG

In trading options, one of the most important tool for understanding your trade is the risk profile. Most traders only look at the expiration curve but what happens between now and expiration is fraught with danger. Come learn about this important tool available free on the ThinkOrSwim (TOS) platform - the ins and outs and the use of simulations to get a correct P&L. Understand what this powerful tool can show you and how to use it to understand entry strategies, adjustment strategies, visualizing the greeks, and most importantly, your risk in a trade at any point in time so you can take appropriate action. See how Dennis uses this tool in his daily trading.
