How Understanding Seasonality Can Improve Option Trade Opportunities -- Dennis W. Wilborn Sr.

Did you know that many stocks, indices, and commodities have a tendency to move during certain times of year and business cycles. Does this mean there is a better time to enter and exit? Dennis has found that every index, commodity and industry group moves on seasonal price action waves. Understanding the tendencies provided by seasonality enhances your probabilities of trading successfully with strong trends. 

Dennis will discuss seasonality, what he has discovered about it, what tools you can use to find seasonality, how he uses it to increase his probability of success, and how he has applied options to trade these seasonality patterns.The repeatable patterns of seasonality are something all traders need to be aware of and using. Come learn how you can use seasonality in your trading and useful tips from a seasoned trader who is using seasonality successfully.
