From 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET today, the Motley Fool Options team will be hosting a live chat -- click below to join us!

If you've been in the stock market for the two years following March 2009, you've seen the market almost double. Good returns have been commonplace, as the rising tide has lifted many an investing boat.

The market isn't always so friendly, though. Today, members of our Motley Fool Options team will discuss strategies to navigate choppier markets, including ways to:  

  • Protect a core holding and generate income as the market slides.
  • Earn 10%-20% annualized when the market is range-bound.
  • Double your money when a stock moves up by just 5%.

You can chat live with co-advisor Jeff Fischer (TMFFischer) and analysts Nick Crow (TMFCrow), Bryan Hinmon (TMF42), and Alex Pape (TMFPapester). You'll have the virtual podium to ask the team about options, particularly how to use them effectively to make money in up, down, or flat markets.

Join us to discuss below! We'll be chatting from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET.
