Unusual Options Course
Learn how to use unusual options activity to manage your options and equity position. On the trading floor, the term ‘paper’ was used to denote the large institutional orders carried into the trading pits by brokers. While it is unethical (and illegal) to trade based on non-public information, once an order is sent to the exchange it becomes public information – and anyone can trade off of this. Jonathan Rose shows you how to use this information in this 90 minute video series.
Also covered in the workshop: skew, option spreads, using ‘unusual activity’ as support and resistance, and how to trade off institutional flow.
If you’re trading without following order flow this workshop will be immediate ‘value add’ for your trading account.
