Noon – 1:00 p.m. ET

During this webinar, you will learn why certain options data is useful in helping predict broad market movements. Larry McMillan will discuss the current state of those indicators. He will share why put-call ratios have been powerful contrary indicators with a good track record of market prediction. He will also discuss why volatility derivatives and indices are useful, especially in determining extreme oversold conditions and buying opportunities, but also in discerning the trend of the broad stock market. Lastly, he will touch on the current state of market breadth and how it relates to market prediction as well.
