Thu, 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM Zoom Webinar (Information to be sent to Registrants)
General PublicFinance


Volatility has been the market’s theme in 2022, and many investors have found it painful. Many more are unclear as to how to manage their portfolios under these conditions. One solution to surviving – or better still, winning – in turbulent markets is learning conservative options strategies.

Options trading has an undeserved reputation as speculative or dangerous. But there are many options methods that any investor can use to reduce risk, generate income or even buy favorite stocks at a discount.

Our October 20th panel features three veteran options leaders, who will provide practical guidance on how options can help you beat today’s market conditions. JJ Kinahan is the CEO of IG Group North America, author of “Essential Options Strategies” and a board member of the Chicago Board of Exchange. Dan Passarelli is founder and CEO of Market Taker Mentoring and author of “Trading Option Greeks” and “The Market Taker’s Edge”. Mark Longo is founder & CEO of The Options Insider, which is the leading streaming audio provider in the derivatives space.

Participants must register by NOON on October 19th to receive details on joining the discussion. The Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event.

Please note that no refunds will be issued.
