We had an unbelievable session on Tuesday with Tony Battista from tastytrade educating our Patrons on all kinds of option strategies!  Before Tony started looking through different trade examples, he shared some of his thoughts on what traders can do when volatility spikes in order to reduce risk.  Tony said that the best way to reduce risk during times of high volatility is to reduce size which thereby reduces exposure to the market.  Many traders get into the habit of simply trading a certain size on every trade regardless of the risk.  It is very important to focus on risk first and not the "money" part of the trade.  Another important rule that he shared involved his rule of 1/3 which is something he explained as a way to determine whether or not a credit spread was worth the risk based on the amount of return to risk.  If you did not get a chance to see the presentation or if you would like to view it again, it will be available for everyone for the next 48 hours and then move into the Premium Pub section of our site.  Thanks again to Tony, Beth and the team at tastytrade for their dedication to educating and entertaining traders across the globe!
