Panel Event: Finding an Edge
How Options Traders Use Alternative Datasets 

March 21, 2018 | 5-7pm

Pazzo's @311  | 311 South Wacker Drive, Chicago

We look forward to having you join us at the panel event discussing how using alternative data can positively impact your trading.

The explosion of new alternative datasets emerging every day adds an exciting yet daunting spin for the capital markets industry. The challenges of assessing alt data — such as the wide range of data and types available, lack of historical analysis and alignment of data sourcing   can make it time-consuming and difficult to ingest and take action.

Our esteemed panel of industry experts will weigh the opportunities and risks associated with alternative data for options and equities traders as well as quantitative analysts and portfolio managers.

Speaker Panel:

Catherine Clay, VP, Global Head of Information Solutions, Cboe (moderator)
Michael Izhaky, CEO, FT Options
Henry Schwartz, President, TradeAlert
Barry L. Star, CEO, Wall Street Horizon
Robin Mess, CEO, big xyt
