Options Strategies for Earnings Season and Other Events


Quarterly earnings and other important events have the potential to trigger sudden moves in stock prices. Call and put options can help investors manage the risk of these catalysts by positioning for directional moves or hedging against declines. Key strategies include vertical spreads and covered calls.

This educational webinar demonstrates how to construct various option strategies with TradeStation’s award winning platform. It covers use of our desktop application and web trading experience. Conversation focuses on active underliers like Meta Platforms (META) and Microsoft (MSFT). Techniques for identifying and tracking these high-volume symbols are also covered.
