Marc On The Markets

Reading the Tea Leaves

August 27, 2020


This month’s webinar is about options and will introduce some indicators to get you started and deepen your understanding of the options markets so you can level up your market intelligence and enhance your portfolio management.

Marc will be joined by our Portfolio Manager, Managing Director-Risk, Chris Hausman CMT® who has been in the derivatives business for over 25 years and knows a thing or two about the options market. 

Together they will unpack:


  • The indicators and tools for analyzing the options market.
  • What the options market is telling us about next month? November 3rd? To year end?
  • What the VIX and Skew index can tell you about perceived risks in the markets.
  • Has the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in any permanent changes in the options market? Or is what we’ve seen just part of the natural ebb and flow in volatility?
  • What are the implications of retail investors playing in the options market?
