Fish, Chips and Trading the VIX with Mark Sebastian:

We had a great event at the TradingPub this week with Mark Sebastian from OptionPit.com. Mark was kind enough to educate our Patrons on trading the SPX, VIX and also share from his experience as a former floor trader. He educated about how SPX options roll, Calendar Trading and the VIX. With all the news surrounding the current debt debate, the VIX is an indicator that needs to be on every investor's screen.

One thing that Mark mentioned during the talk that really hit home was when someone asked a question about whether he preferred a certain strategy. Mark's response was, "Never prefer to do anything... prefer to do whatever makes you money." So many times, traders can get focused on boxing themselves into a particular strategy, but the important thing to remember is that the markets are always changing. With changes in the market it is very important to reflect on current strategies and investments to determine if any adjustments are needed. Remember during uncertain times to be in a position where you can easily adapt and manage your risk!

Mark managed to give our Patrons a Ph.D in Vixology in about an hour's time. With so many amazing topics covered, we thought it would be beneficial to share the session so all could review.
