Options was initially designed as a conservative hedging tool. But over time, the market has evolved to become much faster and more volatile, and options are now being used by traders and hedge funds as their primary profit source.

In this Keynote presentation, Matt Choi, CMT will be demonstrating his top ROI options strategy that fits all criteria described above. This session is highly recommended for options traders.
