Talking VIX at NY Trader’s Expo

Next week while most traders are taking the day off for President’s Day Jim Bittman and I will be hard at work at the NY Trader’s Expo. CBOE is sponsoring a half day of options education starting at 12:45 on Monday and wrapping up at 5:15 that afternoon. In addition to myself and Jim we will have Joe Kinahan from TD Ameritrade, Nina Milovac from optionsXpress, Dan Sheridan of Sheridan Mentoring, and Mike Turner from CycleProphet participating. 

I’m very excited to discuss my favorite topic, the CBOE Volatility Index or VIX, from 2:45 to 3:45. I will get to cover what VIX actually is and what it measures along with some methods of trading VIX that are appropriate for all levels of traders.  

The NY Trader’s Expo will be held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square next Sunday through Tuesday – February 17 – 19. If you want to attend use the link below and be sure to check out the CBOE sponsored events on Monday afternoon –
