May the Fourth is a special day for Star Wars fans to unite worldwide and celebrate the franchise’s movies, series, video games, comics, and all other aspects of the iconic science fiction universe created in 1977 by filmmaker George Lucas.
*cues the Star Wars anthem*
One may not believe that Investing and Star Wars go hand and hand; however, it is quite the contrary. Here at RCM Alts, we never miss the opportunity to put our own Star Wars twist to celebrate this one-of-a-kind holiday, like our Star Wars Fan Guide to Investing and our Jedi of Volatility Trading Infographic.
This year, we’re bringing a whole new meaning to “May the Fourth Be With You” by doing a unique giveaway of our Jedi of Volatility Trading infographic. That’s right, you could win a 27x 21 poster of the Vol Jedis, and there isn’t going to be “Obi Wan” aka only one lucky winner, but we will be giving away TEN! Rules on entering are below, but first, let us reintroduce you to the Knights of Volatility Trading. These Jedi resist the call of the short volatility dark side and go out into the galaxy with nothing more than their faith in the light side of the Force:
- Benn Eifert: “Vol, Benn There, Done That”
- Cem Karsan: “Vol Curves and Vanna Charm”
- Hari Krishnan: “Sequencing, Skew, and (Option) Strikes”
- Jason Buck: “Protecting Against a Market Mutiny with Tail Risk, Convexity, & Long Vol”
- Joe Tigay: “Valuing VIX and Volatility”
- Kris Sidial: “Wallstreetbets busts Wall Street WTF^%$#?”
- Lily Francus: “Yep, She’s Opening Up Option Eyes with Nope It’s Lily”
- Matt Thompson: “Market Up/Vol Up…Market Down/Vol Down..WTF^%$#?”
- Pat Hennessy: “Market Up/Vol Up…Market Down/Vol Down..WTF^%$#?”
- Vineer Bhansali: “Taming Tails with LongTail Alpha’s Vineer Bhansali”
- Wayne Himelsein: “Human Behind the Hedge Fund”
- Brett Nelson: “Seeking VIX Certainty”
