How to Make Money Trading Spreads

This past Wednesday we held a webinar about how to make money trading spreads.  Thanks to everyone who joined the webinar.  If you missed it, you can find the replay at the bottom of this post.

The webinar was in response to record numbers of people viewing our Trading Like a Math Geek webinar last month.  Viewers found it interesting, but the majority of questions we got were something like, "Great.  How can I use that to make money?"  

In this month's webinar, we talk about developing your own spread trading strategy.  Spread trading is a very broad topic and generally involves capitalizing on relative movements between connected securities.  Connected can mean a lot of things to a lot of people, but a good way to get started with spread trading is by using the mathematical connections we talked about in the last webinar.
