What we're about

This group is for "serious" individuals looking to learn how to trade options to supplement their monthly income, be a primary source of income, or to enhance their retirement investments. This group was started to help others learn about options by having a discussion with a private volatility fund manager.

Each meetup will go over a option topic or strategy that can be used to gain income or to enhance a retirement account. In addition, live trading with real money will take place. This group welcomes beginners and experienced traders. Everyone will be treated with respect!

The main meetup will be monthly and lite refreshments will be served (possibly wine).
