Sponsored Webinar: Risk Management, Volatility & Options Strategies for Today's Markets

Event Description

Tuesday, April 28
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The markets are currently experiencing severe volatility. Although hedging is a key trading strategy, it may be expensive in volatile market environments. 

Join industry professionals from the derivatives space as they assess today's opportunities in the options market.  The presentation will cover various hedging strategies and their costs.

Learn how the markets have recently behaved and what could potentially lie ahead.  Is implied pricing being reflected fairly? Are skews too steep? Should you be a net buyer or seller of options?
