In this session of The Option Alpha Podcast I had a chance to interview Sarah Potter, author of "How You Can Trade Like A Pro" and founder of www.shecantrade.com. This self-taught trader shares her story about why a former futures trader quickly migrated over to options trading because of the better fit with her lifestyle.
You'll hear Sarah's strategy for only trading weekly options on "hot" or "popular" stocks as opposed to monthly contracts. Plus, we will dig deeper into how and why she chooses to use multiple timeframes when trading including the weekly, daily, and 60 mins charts. It's a can't miss episode!

- How she got her start trading futures and has now changed her strategy to fit her lifestyle.
- Why she prefers to trade weekly options as opposed to monthly options.
