The powerpoint I am going to show is one I built a couple of years ago. It is a good primer on options for someone unfamiliar with using them and I also discuss a "non-traditional" spread I developed which points out some of the unique things that options can do for longer term investors. It should inspire lots of discussion...thanks Valrie for organzing a room at UofH and thanks to those who are going to help setup/tear down.

Ok Everyone...I have set the date for the next meetup in March. Unfortunetly it is the only date I could get for the new location. Next month I will have more of a selection. The date is March 16, 2013 at U of H Sugarland Branch Library on University Blvd in Sugar Land, TX. The address is: 14010 University Blvd. Sugar Land, Texas 77479-4295.First Floor Meeting Room 1. 12:00-2:30. That includes set up and tear down. We set up our own tables/chairs. I need a volunteer to meet me there at 12:00 to set up. Presentation starts at 12:30. The AV equipment will be there already. Larry is presenting at this meeting and is to bring his own laptop and usb cord. The cost is FREE. Gotta love that. Please let us know everyone if you all can make it. Room for over 75 people. Remember the last weekend is Easter so this is really the best weekend for us to meet.

Looking forward to seeing where this group goes. As a full time Equity Trader it is nice to network with other individuals with various experience levels in my home town instead of out of state folks. Will be glad to share my knowledge without pushing a product or agenda. I am at my computer all day trading so feel free to drop me a email if you have a question related to equity trades, platforms or intraday trading.

Thanks Valrie for offering to organize. We all have different levels of skills and different interests and it takes considerable time to develop experise as a trader. I can honestly say that I have walked away from every presentation or online seminar I have seen over the last 4 years with one more tool in my arsenal that makes me more successful today. My hope for our new group is that the members with more experience help those with less experience with all the critical skills that are required to earn a decent income....including brokerage choice, computer/software choice and setup, indicators that earn their keep, information overload, trading characteristics of different asset classes (forex, futures, stocks, etc, taxation, useful training sources (free and otherwise), trading rules, psychology of trading...presentations can be powerpoints or just focused/guided discussions on a specific topic...some members new to trading can help others with their specialized skills.

I enjoyed meeting you all today. I am looking forward to the next meetup and having a presentation and focused discussions. I will organize the next meetup. Sandy has offered to take the first presentation. I will ask the presentor to have their topic announced to the group a week before the meetup so everyone can prepare questions ect...I'd like to see a consensus from everyone regarding which Saturday we'd like to shoot for every month. It's best to keep the location/date/time consistant each month. Lets eliminate any chance for chaos and confusion. I like Julie's ideal about the library meeting room, however I don't know we can reserve every Saturday. I will check into Sugarland Library which is less then a half mile from Town Center and free of charge. Ill keep you posted.
