A view of all the 6 segments in the series was displayed. Each was briefly introduced. Another table of two tiers of scalping products was displayed.

A table of the commissions and slippage, intraday margin and overnight margin was displayed. The table compared the E-mini futures, SPY stock (500 shares) and SPY options (10 ATM calls) to each other. Another table compared them on how much intraday margin it took to control one delta. The latter was also done for the Nasdaq later. Tom and Tony drove home the point why this means there is one clear best choice among the three choices available.
