In this seminar, we will explore the various ways that options can be used to hedge individual stock positions, as well as hedging an entire portfolio with index options. Individual stock hedging strategies would include collars, covered call writes, and married puts, among others.
In addition, index option strategies for protecting entire portfolios would include hedges using stock-based indices, such as the S&P 500 (SPX) options, as well as volatility protective strategies, using VIX or VXX options. Portfolio protection techniques will also demonstrate how to relate your personal stock portfolio's volatility characteristics to those of the available hedging indices.
Included in the portfolio protection techniques will be a discussion of available products in the newest asset trading class—volatility—including futures, options, ETNs, and ETFs. You will learn about the advantage of "blended" ETFs (ones with protection already built in), such as the CBOE's Tail Hedge Index or Barclay's VEQTOR ETN.
In addition, as is always the case with McMillan seminars, we will divulge and update our highly profitable trading systems, including the Previous Daily Range system. This will include the timely "January Seasonal" strategy, which can be implemented shortly after the seminar takes place. The power of the content in this portion of the seminar alone makes the seminar worthwhile.

"Larry did such an excellent job of explaining volatility that my wife, who is an investing novice, was able to understand what historical and implied volatility are! Further, she understood when, why and how to use straddles as a direct result of this online seminar. Great Job!" - M. Eidem
"My experience with options dates back to 1984 when I clerked in the OEX pit for a MM. Even then Larry was legendary. It is a pleasure to listen to him because this is the real thing, as opposed to the plethora of salesman who are so-called advisors. It was fun being on-line with a legend." - T. Kelly
