Mini Courses

Stratagem Trading offers 4 to 8-hour courses on specific topics and/or trading strategies from time to time. These courses are designed to address and prepare for anticipated market events (such as the Crash Ready course), or to present in-demand strategies, which maybe of interest to a wider public audience. Topics range from basic to advanced.

THE DRAGON FLY™ SPREAD and SYNTHETICS
(​a two-part mini class)

​February 25 & 26, 2023
9:00am to 3:00pm


This two-piece class will meld the DRAGON FLY™ SPREAD and SYNTHETICS

DRAGON FLY™

The Practical Option Tactics (POT) class has seen extensive use of the DRAGON FLY™ spread in bullish, bearish and even neutral trading conditions.  The versatility of this trade lends itself to not only being a powerful directional spread, but also a strategy that lends itself to easy hedging while allowing a for a residual position. This remnant position of the original spread allows for “cheap shots” as well as future money harvesting opportunities.

At the end of 2022 and the start of 2023, we have been in Dragon Fl​y™ examples that were massaged and played with in a manner that resembles gamma scalping. ​With the ease of understanding, the almost limitless adjustments one can make, the ability to overlap spreads, and low initial cost, it is little wonder StratagemTrade has had months where 1/3 of new trade examples were implementing the Dragon Fly™.


Though the “D-fly” has been taught in P.O.T.'s Wednesday night 2-hour class, it is virtually impossible to fulfill the demand to know “everything” about this monster strategy in anything other than a ​mini course.

This two-day class will cover everything there is to know about the Dragon Fly™ from strike and expiration selection, ideal width of spread based on conditions, hedging techniques, flipping from call to put (and the opposite like in example 240 of 2022), etc.

​SYNTHETICS

An understanding of Synthetics is imperative for any option trader that wants to have alternative closing, adjusting and “escape” routes to managing an option trade. A thorough understanding of synthetics will be introduced as a vehicle for the creation of hedging opportunities to hedge the ​D-fly.

We will be showing ​enhanced hedges that can be employed where a thorough understanding of synthetics ​is crucial. This will be NEW material. 

The SYNTHETICS portion of the class can be rationalized as enough information to enroll in the class since the existing strategies discussed will be applicable to most trade strategies you will ever employ (including Vertical Spreads, BWB's, Collars, Time Spreads, Condors, etc.). 

Nothing will be left out except ​you by not participating in this first of three Mini Classes in 2023.  Enroll Now!
