Overview

Minimize Your Exposure to Market Risk and Increase Profits by Trading in Very Brief Time Frames

 

In today’s turbulent markets, traditional trading strategies have failed to provide protection from the rapid and violent changes that have swung the Dow down 330 points one day, up 280 points the next, and down 250 points at the open on the next. Fundamental analysis based on company performance and financial predictions has proven meaningless. Technical traders must now compete with institutional trading programs utilizing supercomputers that analyze and execute trades in millisecond time frames. So, how can a private investor compete in this environment?

 

In Day Trading Options, expert option trader Jeff Augen shows you how to continue to profit even in these chaotic times. You’ll learn to structure short-term trades that exploit well characterized price distortions and anomalies. You’ll discover a breakthrough technique for utilizing volatility to identify the beginning and end of short-lived trends. And, you’ll gain the knowledge to use this innovative technique to take advantage of financial news and planned events, rather than being at their mercy.

 

  • Abandon outdated trading strategies and conventional “wisdom”
    Minimize your exposure to market risk and increase your profits by trading in very brief time frames and structuring positions that are direction neutral

  • Learn to identify and exploit short-lived volatility changes
