You know him as the co-anchor of the new and ground breaking investment and trading financial network, TastyTrade. Now Tony Battista, a.k.a 'BAT', is coming to our club to give us a lesson on how to setup and trade option spreads which have a high probability of success and which put time and volatility on our side. Tony's trading style is to sell premium and to manage winners as volatility decays with time. Thus BAT's trading mantra, 'Duration over Direction'.

The BAT Bio: I started my 22-year career in options and futures trading in 1983, as an independent Market Maker at the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), as well as a local independent trader at the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), where I traded the 30-year bond future. While primarily an independent trader in the S&P 100 Index (OEX, XEO) pit, I also spent three years in the AOL equity pit. I served on the CBOE arbitration committee for over 10 years, ruling on disputes between traders and trading firms, prior to joining thinkorswim. Presently it is my pleasure to Co-Host with Tom Sosnoff "Get Tasted" on the tastytrade network the #1 ranked financial program on the internet!
