IUR Capital

The Powershares QQQ exchange traded fund is a widely known tech-focused ETF which outperformed many index ETFs during 2020, and QQQ options are some of the most liquid within US listed options. Investors can use several option strategies that seek to harvest premium using either near-term weekly options or longer-term traditional monthlies.

Join Gareth Ryan, Founder & Managing Director at IUR Capital, as he discusses the evolution of QQQ options with premium-harvesting option strategies including the credit spread strategy and iron butterfly. Gareth will look at how these defined-risk, defined-return strategies are implemented to an equity portfolio and look at how they can be used in bull, bear, and sideways markets. A Q&A session will take place at the end.
