The good news is that attendance is free for this 50-minute Webinar.
The better news is that the speaker is Mark Sebastian, COO of Option Pit. Options education is a serious business and it is important to learn how the options world works from serious educators. I believe Mark deserves membership in that class of teachers.
The best news is that the topic is something of interest for all option traders — using VIX and other volatility products.

One of the more difficult concepts to grasp in the options universe is the relationship between VIX (CBOE Volatility Index), VIX futures, and VIX ETN’s (Exchange Traded Notes*). Many traders make costly errors regarding VIX options. Learn to avoid these simple mistakes.
Mark Sebastian discusses the interrelationship of VIX, VIX futures, and VIX ETN’s. Included: the pitfalls of the ETN’s. He will also cover ways to take advantage of trading VIX based options.
*If you do not know what an ETN is, here is one definition: A type of unsecured, unsubordinated debt security that was first issued by Barclays Bank. This debt security differs from other types of bonds and notes because ETN returns are based upon the performance of a market index minus applicable fees. There are no periodic dividend or interest payments; principal is not guaranteed.
Take advantage on an opportunity to further your options education.
This webinar, presented by the 2Marks, is my way of thanking you for showing interest in Options for Rookies and this blog.
You do not have to invest in ETNs to benefit from understanding their role in the options universe.
See you at the webinar!
