Options are growing more popular every day, and why shouldn’t they be? After all, with options, you can profit in a bull market, a bear market, or even a sideways market. You can use options to provide “insurance” for your portfolio, thus diminishing your risk—or you can leverage a little money into controlling a huge amount of stock. Simply put, options offer something for every-body.
In this guide you’ll learn about calls and puts, which can either be short or long. That’s right—you can have a long call or a short put, a short call or a long put, and by the time you’re finished reading this book, it will all make sense to you!
Once you’ve got the basics down, we’ll move on to multi-options strategies such as collars, spreads, straddles, and combinations. Each of these can be used to your advantage in helping you meet your stated investment objectives—don’t ignore them just because they seem “com-plex.” Every trader should be aware of these strategies, because if you don’t, you risk being on the losing side of a game you aren’t even aware you’re playing.
Learning about options may seem like a daunting task at first. In many ways, it’s like learning a new language. But once you “get it,” it will begin to intuitively make sense. And then it becomes fun… And profitable! So read on and learn how you too can profit and hedge just like the big boys on Wall Street. It’s easier than you might think!
