You can't trade $VIX (the CBOE's Volatility Index) itself, but there are plenty of ways that you can use volatility derivatives (both futures and options) to hedge your portfolio, to speculate, or to help you predict market direction. In this seminar, we'll look at all of those, and illustrate some extremely important points.
Option data (price and volume) can often be used to structure trading indicators or systems designed to predict the movements of the broad stock market. In this session, Larry McMillan will review the prominent ones (put-call ratios, volatility indices such as VIX, etc.) and bring you up to date on what these indicators are "saying" at the current time.
Exchange traded options that are traded in the U.S. are classified as either American style or European style. The latter type can only be exercised at expiration while American style options can be exercised at any time. Consequently, writers of these options can be assigned at any time. Several questions come to mind - when should I early exercise long options, and when should I expect to be assigned on short options? Is being assigned a serious problem? I will discuss the theory and practical applications of early exercise and show some examples of how this information can help you avoid potential trading disasters.
