All investing involves risks, including loss of principal.

The presentations are provided for general information purposes only and should not be considered individualized recommendations or advice.

Options are not suitable for all investors as the special risks inherent to option trading may expose investors to potentially rapid and substantial losses. Option trading privileges subject to TD Ameritrade review and approval. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options.

Spreads and other multiple-leg option strategies can entail substantial transaction costs, including multiple commissions, which may impact any potential return. These are advanced option strategies and often involve greater risk, and more complex risk, than basic options trades.

Supporting documentation for any claims, comparison, statistics, or other technical data will be supplied upon request.

While this workshop discusses technical analysis, other approaches, including fundamental analysis, may assert very different views.
