Episode 18: Lessons in Options Trading, Credit Markets and Balance Sheets w/ Fil Zucchi

Better late than never, right?

On Episode 18 of the Value Hive Podcast I chat with Fil Zucchi. Fil is an independent options trader and former bankruptcy lawyer. I first met Fil at last years ValueX Vail Investors Conference.

Fil brings a unique look to equity and credit markets. He expresses his thoughts and opinions through options trading. He’s a market veteran with over 30 years of experience.

Here’s the crazy part: in 30 years of trading, Fil’s never seen markets like the one we’re in now.

We dive deep into options trading, balance sheets, bond markets and what to look for in troubled companies. Fil provides insight into why credit markets lead equity markets, and how equity investors can leverage bond markets to gain additional insight.
