Join Sarah Potter, founder of www.shecantrade.com as she interviews Kirk Du Plessis, founder and head trader of www.optionalpha.com. Kirk and Sarah both trade options for a living, although they approach trading from different perspectives.

This is a great conversation that will broaden your horizon and give you new approaches to trading. Kirk Du Plessis also hosts a weekly options trading podcast which is available in iTunes and on his website.
The topic turns to oil in Episode 17 of the SheCanTrade podcast with Sarah Potter and Thomas Miller. Traders are fixated on oil prices, wondering where trades might exist. Sarah and Thomas discuss the dynamics behind these ultra-low prices and why picking the bottom could be a tough call. This is an informative conversation on why we are where we are, and what fundamental triggers will need to be in place for prices to go back up. Also, tracking back five times to 1986, when oil bottomed and turned, the upside ranged from 200 to 500 percent gains, so this is definitely a sector worth keeping an eye on. Sarah also shares her thoughts on trading in volatile markets like we are experiencing now.
Episode 16 of She Can Trade with Sarah Potter – it’s earnings season and Sarah and co-host Thomas Miller explore how earnings season affects your trading. As Sarah points out, earnings releases add a risk component that you have to factor into your trading and she explains her philosophy of successful trading that has made her “SheCanTrade” style so popular in the trading community. Sarah minimizes her risk, and earnings is one time to pay extra attention to the risk component. Join Sarah for this excellent discussion on how to manage the roadblocks during earnings season.
Welcome to Episode 15 of the SheCanTrade podcast with Sarah Potter. The markets are crazy and zany again this week, yet Sarah and TJ were able to have a spectacular week in the live trading room last week so this podcast we review three trade setups last week in WMT, CMG and LNKD. Plus, Sarah takes a look at the S&P 500, discussing if it might be forming a technical double bottom, or an “h” pattern, as she likes to observe. Perhaps it is, maybe it isn’t. Time will tell. Tune in to find out more on her outlook for the market.
