Intensive Option Webinar #1: Volatility Trading

The main focus of this 4 hour seminar is not speculation, per se (although there will some discussion of it), but rather the use of volatility trading option strategies to put the odds of success in your favor.

First, there is a complete discussion of the products in the newest asset trading class – Volatility – including futures, options, and ETN’s. Hedged strategies to take advantage of distorted volatility market constructs are also demonstrated.

A large portion of the seminar addresses the use of options theory to trade the more popular option strategies. These theories include the application of implied volatility, volatility skews, expected return, and risk management. The strategies covered in this regard include covered writing, naked put selling, credit spreads, calendars spreads, ratio spreads, backspreads, and straddle buying. The use of weekly options in some of these strategies can make them highly profitable.

This 4 hour intensive webinar includes an array of highly profitable, successfully tested trading systems. Some of these are day-trading systems, including the powerful Previous Daily Range system, while others are of a longer term. The power of the content in this discussion alone makes the webinar worthwhile.

Intensive Option Webinar #2: Modern Portfolio Protection

In this seminar, we will explore the various ways that options can be used to hedge individual stock positions, as well as hedging an entire portfolio with index options. Individual stock hedging strategies would include collars, covered call writes, and married puts, among others.

In addition, index option strategies for protecting entire portfolios would include hedges using stock-based indices, such as the S&P 500 (SPX) options, as well as volatility protective strategies, using VIX or VXX options. Portfolio protection techniques will also demonstrate how to relate your personal stock portfolio's volatility characteristics to those of the available heding indices.

Included in the portfolio protection techniques will be a discussion of available products in the newest asset trading class—volatility—including futures, options, ETNs, and ETFs. You will learn about the advantage of "blended" ETFs (ones with protection already built in), such as the CBOE's Tail Hedge Index or Barclay's VEQTOR ETN.

In addition, as is always the case with McMillan seminars, we will divulge and update our highly profitable trading systems, including the Previous Daily Range system. This will include the timely "January Seasonal" strategy, which can be implemented shortly after the seminar takes place. The power of the content in this portion of the seminar alone makes the seminar worthwhile.

Intensive Option Webinar #3: Speculating with Options

The main focus of this seminar is speculation, —how to trade directional positions in options and stocks, and how to use options to your advantage while doing so.

Option data itself can be used as directional indicators. Sometimes these are direct indicators, meaning that "smart money" is operating in the option market. We will look at techniques for spotting and trading that activity. The discussion of contrary techniques will extend into other areas as well, all technically based that have been researched and developed into trading systems.

Finally, as is always the case with McMillan seminars, Larry will divulge and update his highly profitable trading systems, including the Previous Daily Range system, the October Seasonal Trade, and others. The power of the content in this portion of the seminar alone makes the seminar worthwhile.

McMillan Options Mentoring

Trading or investing whether on margin or otherwise carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all persons. Leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade or invest you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and ability to tolerate risk. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment or even more than your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and investing, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Testimonials*:  Testimonials are believed to be true based on the representations of the persons providing the testimonials, but facts stated in testimonials have not been independently audited or verified. Nor has there been any attempt to determine whether any testimonials are representative of the experiences of all persons using the methods described herein or to compare the experiences of the persons giving the testimonials after the testimonials were given. You should not necessarily expect the same or similar results.

Performance Results: Past performance results for advisory services and educational products are shown for illustration and example only, and are hypothetical.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.

ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
