ABOUT THE EVENT

We have brought a panel of experts to discuss not only this year’s likely developments but demonstrate powerful techniques in navigating through the emerging trends, while filtering the noise, looking for biases and taking advantage of seasonality in order to position you ahead of the opportunities.

Experienced traders and technical analysts will showcase the potentials of having a robust trading strategy with risk management and exit rules that maximize your profit.

Whether or not you are a TradeStation client, a friend or just someone looking to explore new horizons, new to futures or seasoned veteran, we hope this event will provide you with valuable insights and bring together our trading community.
