A Rare and Exclusive Event for Options Traders

About

We have arranged another “can’t-miss” options educational event—this time in the center of the options trading universe—Chicago! Get a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with the country’s top professional traders LIVE for an unbeatable combination of in-depth options education and networking occasion. You’ll enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to mock trade in the SPX® trading pit of the CBOE alongside professional floor traders and pick their brains afterwards at the exclusive reception in the CBOE Members’ Lounge.

Who Should Attend

hotel Beginners
For beginners, our goal is to start you down the path of options trading and help you avoid many of the pitfalls that beginning options traders experience. Some of the top names in trading will familiarize you with options—what they are, how they work, and what opportunities they present. You'll take away practical knowledge about when it’s appropriate to buy/sell puts or calls, use covered call writing strategies and garner trade ideas.

hotel Intermediate-Advanced
For intermediate-advanced options traders, our all-star line-up will tackle various option tactics and strategies to help you generate more money and better manage your portfolio risk. Our instructors—all are professional traders, former market makers, or floor traders—will demonstrate their time-tested option trading strategies.
