To learn a system that will help me determine entry points for buying calls and puts, and then when to exit the trade.
Don't trade them -- want to learn how to do it.
Started investing in stocks in early '90's. Have done covered calls for about 2 years.
I'm retired. Was a managing editor on a monthly consumer magazine. I've been buying stocks and funds for years, and had thought of myself as an investor. Now, I think of myself as a trader -- swing and/or position. Don't really want to day trade in stocks, but maybe in options -- as I can see how quickly they can move pricewise. I love looking at charts and want to get better at reading them.
Tremendous volitility due to news, rumors, etc. You never know when it's going to hit and disrupt your plan.
My experience with options has been limited to covered calls. I want to learn how to trade calls and puts and your meeting sounds like a good place to learn.
If you're interested in understanding options, beyond directional trading, attend one of these meetings.
