Speaker:         Eric "Wolfman" Wilkinson

Web:               www.protraderstrategies.com

Time:              7:00 pm        

Topic:             The Poor Man's Covered Call (and Put)

Increasing one's returns is really as simple as knowing when, where and how to implement options strategies, Like the Poor Man's Covered Call (Put) to increase the probabilities of success.  One of the ways to achieve higher returns is to diversify our portfolios. Wouldn't you say that it is important to diversify your portfolio? Traders and investors with small accounts definitely struggle with this problem and even larger accounts could be better at allocating funds to increase their diversification. 

Join Eric "The Wolfman" Wilkinson, former Chicago Board of Trade floor trader and 25 year professional trader, as he explains how traders struggling with limited capital, wanting to use less margin or wanting to limit their risk can implement a Poor Man's Covered Call (Put).
