Beginning next week I will be doing a mini-tour where I get to discuss two of my favorite topics – trading SPX and VIX. The official title of the three hour program is – Trading with an Edge: Advanced Strategies for VIX and SPX Options. Do not let the title intimidate you if you are a relative novice to SPX and VIX trading. I plan on spending a little time at the beginning covering some basics of index options and the behavior of those markets. After quickly getting up to speed we will dive into a wide variety of strategies and trading methods. With respect to SPX the focus will be very option centric. However, when discussing VIX the trading vehicles used for examples will include VIX futures, options and even exchange traded products like VXX. Also, as an added bonus there will be a section on trading the new CBOE Short-Term Volatility Index (VXST).
Things get started on Wednesday April 2 when I will be in Midtown Manhattan at the New York Hilton. The following week I will be at the Doubletree in San Jose, CA on Tuesday April 8th and then I finish the three city tour at the Chicago Marriott in Schaumburg, IL on April 10th. Each event runs from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
