Options allow the construction of a myriad of trading strategies.
As the technician sees the evolution of a price pattern, specific
options strategies may be far more suitable for establishing a
position than a trade of out-right long or short. This is
especially true in the futures markets with their propensity to
gap-open beyond reasonably placed protective stop-loss orders.
This advanced course combines the disciplines of classical technical analysis with the selection of an appropriate options position. The course book contains case studies from actual chart patterns and suggested options strategies.
