CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - June 16, 2010) - optionMONSTER Group, owner of optionMONSTER and online broker tradeMONSTER, announced today the Chicago stop of its acclaimed investor education conference, Invest Like a Monster. The event returns to Chicago at a time of record market volatility and as economic turmoil in Europe weighs on the psyche of individual investors.

Led by optionMONSTER founders and frequent CNBC contributors Jon 'DRJ' and Pete Najarian, as well as Guy Adami, Invest Like a Monster promises to educate attendees on investing best practices and provide an expert assessment of today's financial markets.

The 2-day event, being hosted at the Swissotel Chicago, is packed with detailed presentations and extended Q&A sessions, as well as networking opportunities where attendees can meet a wide range of investors. The show will also feature a one-of-a-kind live trading session by Jon and Pete Najarian. The interactive trading session will showcase elements of Jon and Pete's own investing strategies learned and refined during their three decades of experience in the institutional trading arena.

"The Invest Like a Monster conference series gives investors both the framework and knowledge to make disciplined trading decisions," said Dirk Mueller, co-founder and CEO of optionMONSTER Group. Added Jon 'DRJ' Najarian, "Our sole mission at our Invest Like a Monster events is to make sure each attendee walks away with more trading skills and investing knowledge than they had when they walked in the door. We can't wait to get underway in our hometown."
