Dr. Wish shows how his technical analysis tools may be used to select stocks to compliment the options strategies discussed by Dr. Ellman. These tools include his General Market Index (GMI), Green Line Breakout (GLB) daily/weekly RWB patterns & specific tech indicators (stochastics & Bollinger Bands). He'll use the TC2000 charting program to identify strong stocks.

Stock options can be risky or conservative; two low-risk option-selling strategies for buying stocks at a discount to elevate returns, leveraging covered call writing & selling cash-secured puts, are shown. This seminar is geared towards investors who are beginner option traders, but plenty of advanced materials for those already trading options can be discussed.
Attend this workshop to learn:
  • How to assess the market's trend, identify strong stocks and how TC2000 can be used to create alerts when a stock exhibits a specific technical pattern.
  • How to sell puts to either buy a stock at a discount or get paid not to buy the stock and also to determine which option to select when selling call and put options.
  • How to increase profits & decrease the chance of our shares being sold in our long-term buy-and-hold portfolios.

His 4th book, Stock Investing for Students, is now required reading at the Univ. of Maryland. His fifth publication, Selling Cash-Secured Puts, is a best-seller.
