<div rel="sfreifeld-200px.jpg"> <p>Join Stan as he discusses the details of a Delta Neutral trading strategy based on volatility. Trading Delta Neutral positions is a strategy that is used by both professional and non-professional traders to increase their profits and to reduce risk.&nbsp;</p> <p>The concept is to remove, or significantly reduce, the directional component in a position so that profits can be made whether the underlying moves is up or down. This then frees the trader from having to predict the direction of the underlying asset.&nbsp;</p> <p>The concept is that it is easier (not easy, there&rsquo;s no free lunch) to predict volatility than direction. Stan will provide the background information necessary to trade Delta Neutral and discuss its advantages and disadvantages. Then he&rsquo;ll show you how to create a Delta Neutral position and provide an example.&nbsp;</p> <p>You&rsquo;ll need to have a working knowledge of the Greeks, but don&rsquo;t worry, Stan will provide a brief explanation of them as well.</p> <p>About Stan Freifeld</p> <p>Stan comes to us from the Floor of the American Stock Exchange where he traded options for his own account from 1994-2001. He was a Market Maker for the options on several popular equities including DuPont, Schering-Plough, Walgreen's, CBS, U.S. Surgical and Biovail.</p> <p>His knowledge of the rules and regulations of the Exchange, combined with his reputation for honesty, integrity, and fairness enabled him to be appointed as a Floor Official where he served on several Exchange Committees, including the Minor Violations Committee. He says it wasn't always easy settling disputes between traders when thousands of dollars were at stake.</p> <p>Prior to starting his professional trading career, Stan was a pension actuary for 20 years. After graduating from the State University of New York at Stony Brook as a double major in pure and applied mathematics, Stan became one of the youngest members of the prestigious Society of Actuaries. In 1993 he was a Principal and part-owner of a pension consulting firm where he ran the small plan department. When his company was sold, Stan used the proceeds to obtain a seat on the Exchange and set up a trading company. He never looked back and the rest is history. </p></div>
