Speaker Bio:   Dan Gibby possesses more than 25 years’ experience in equity and options trading, with expertise in technical analysis, using options to hedge and speculate, and portfolio/asset management. 

He uses technical analysis, market internals, sentiment indicators, and volatility to trade options for monthly income and invest in directional strategies for wealth using Master Trader’s techno-fundamental approach.   He thrives in times of high volatility and extreme market euphoria or fear.
