Do you own stock, or wish you owned shares in a company?

Two of the best instructors in the option industry are collaborating on a Creative Collars ​​class in what is the first joint-effort between these two highly respected traders.

​For two solid days, Amy Meissner and Scott (a.k.a. J. L. Lord) will take you on a purposely led path from remedial through professional level collars, including the popular Triple Threat/Triple Return Method (CIS: Call Instead of Stock) and Five-Year Millionaire (5YM) strategies. Regardless of your level of sophistication, there will be new stock (and stock substitute) strategies never taught by either industry legend. This is the Alpha and Omega class on Collars.
