Show Notes

Hello everybody, our guest today is Sean McLaughlin, aka @chicagosean on social media.

Sean is the chief options strategist for All Star Charts and Senior Market Strategist at Trade Ideas. He’s been trading for over 20 years starting out as a prop trader during the late 90s, founded a hedge fund shortly thereafter, and since transitioned primarily to trading options.

In this episode we talk about the tech boom of the 1990s, some of the bad habits Sean picked up during those years, and also some of the similarities between those markets and the present day. 

We then geek out on options, and discuss Sean’s framework for placing option trades, how equity traders can start using options, gamma squeezes and a whole lot more.

Please enjoy this conversation with my friend, Sean McLaughlin.
