I’ve been trading options for 20 years, and I wish someone had written this type of options trading education guide for me. I’m excited to share some of my experience and open the world of options to a new group of investors.

Why You Need to Learn Options Trading

Most investors’ equity portfolios are 100% long stock. This works wonderfully during a bull market—like the mega-bull we enjoyed from 1982 to 2000 and the mini-bull from 2003 to 2007—but the good times of buy-and-hold investing are long gone. Options can help you profit from bear markets as well as range-bound markets, and that means they’re a perfect way to diversify away from a long-only, buy-and-hold stock portfolio. Profiting from stagnant and declining prices are just two ways you can “row” your portfolio to gains in a difficult market full of headwinds.

Options are an incredibly flexible tool that smart investors can use to protect, boost and diversify their portfolios—all while reducing risk! Options trading volume has exploded, growing 40% annually as more investors have discovered the power of options to enhance—and protect—portfolio returns. Don’t be left behind!

Bottom line: You can use options to profit in any kind of market—up, down, flat, or choppy. Specifically, options help you:

  • Participate in all of the gains of your favorite stocks at a fraction of the cost
  • Buy stocks at a 10% to 20% discount to the current market price
  • Protect gains in a stock that looks shaky
  • Quickly recoup losses from a stock investment that went bad
  • Generate steady monthly income from an underlying portfolio of blue-chip stocks
  • Attempt to double, triple, or quadruple your money even when the market is going down!
Options—used intelligently—will make you more money than stocks alone. In this new special report, Learn Options Trading: Options Trading Education and Options Trading Strategies, I’ll show you what options are, how they relate to stocks and how they are priced. But that’s not all. Most importantly, I’ll provide you with specific options trading strategies that you can use in combination with your existing stock positions or as standalone trades.

Options Trading Education—The Basics

Stock options are derivatives—they derive their value from an underlying something else, the value of a stock. Each option contract represents the right to buy or sell 100 shares of that underlying stock at a certain price on or before a certain date.

There are two types of options: calls and puts. And there are two sides to every option transaction: the party buying the option, who has a long position, and the party selling (also called writing) the option, who has a short position. Each side comes with its own risk-reward profile and its own strategies.

A call is the option to buy the underlying stock at a predetermined price (strike price) by a predetermined date (expiration, which is usually the Saturday after the third Friday of a month). The expiration can be as soon as next month or as distant as two and a half years away. If the call buyer decides to buy the stock—an act known as exercising the option—the call writer is obliged to sell his shares to the call buyer at the strike price.

If a call is the right to buy, then a put is the option to sell the underlying stock at a predetermined strike price until the expiration date. The put buyer has the right to sell shares at the strike price, and if he decides to sell, the put writer is obliged to buy at that price.

Call Put
Buyer (Long) Right to buy stock Right to sell stock
Seller (Short) Obligation to sell stock Obligation to buy stock

A call buyer makes a profit when the price of the underlying shares rises. The call writer is making the opposite bet, hoping for the stock price to decline or, at the very least, not rise above the strike price by more than the amount he received for selling the call in the first place.

The put buyer profits when the underlying stock price falls. Conversely, a put writer is hoping for the stock price to rise or, at the very least, not decline below the strike price by more than the amount he received for selling the put in the first place.

Those are the basics. But in this new special report, Learn Options Trading: Options Trading Education and Options Trading Strategies, you will also learn much, much more...
