Seminar Announcement: Options Trading With Scaled Dynamics – August 17, 2011

I know it’s a little short notice, however my unrelenting travel schedule and seemingly endless to-do list has put this off for way too long.

The kind folks at Advantage Futures have asked me to speak at a seminar detailing the concepts discussed in my previous article about options trading. I will be releasing a second installment of the article to coincide with the event later that day. I will also be discussing the practical applications of options trading in the SD GateKeeper front end.
