9:30 – 9:55: Welcome and Introduction

10:00 – 12:00 So, what’s your troubles with options? By Paul McLaren

Paul’s proposition for this presentation is - Options are often misperceived, misunderstood and misused in many trading and investing portfolios. He will use the following three stages to support this statement. These stages are important because without effectively dealing with the issues surrounding each stage, traders are unlikely to progress successfully to the next stage.

These stages are:

1. Perception created by myths:

- Most options expire worthless

- Options are risky

- Options are for expert traders

- Options are complicated

2. Education:

- Is there an inherent problem with the way options are taught?

- Do some who teach options suffer from the curse of knowledge?

- How well does technical analysis and options trading integrate?

3. Trading:

- The 8 most common mistakes of options trading.

- Cognitive biases with options trading

Paul will demonstrate options are not the monster they are portrayed to be. So, be prepared for an interactive and informative session.
