Options trading can be tricky for beginners. Watch this video to learn how to trade options. Like and share this video by E*TRADE to help others learn options trading. Important Note: Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. For more information, please read the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options at https://content.etrade.com/etrade/estation/pdf/charrisk.pdf before you begin trading options. Moreover, there are specific risks associated with buying options including the risk of the purchased options expiring worthless. Because of the importance of tax considerations to all options transactions, the investor considering options should consult his/her tax adviser as to how taxes affect the outcome of covered call writing. Commissions and other costs may be a significant factor.

Why don’t you guy tell me how much it cost for the premium. Give some examples case study or do like a comparison if you buy 10 trade option versus 50,000 cash with your own money. After watching this clip I feel like you guy trying to get people into debt. You can invest but limit your risk. That sound to good to be true?

I wasn't aware that an option would expire worthless. I was under the impression that if you bought a call, for instance, and that stock premium dropped, if the contract expired, you'd be short the amount of money you paid for the premium. Is that correct or does the call just expire and you get your premium $$ back?

The problem with this video and why it confuses so many people is because they bring in concepts like dividends and using put options as a hedge for a position. They should have kept those concepts out and just talked about how a person can profit or lose money on an options trade. It would have made it much less confusing for beginners. If I were a beginner this video would have confused me as well.

The language of finance is such a beautiful language to learn and be fluent in. It's a pity more people don't spend enough time, if any at all, to become fluent in the language of finance to increase their financial literacy. Great video and explanation of options. If you want to master any language, full immersion is the only way to do so. Otherwise, you're going to take too long and get little return for your investment in trying to master a language. Practice makes perfect: reading, writing, listening and speaking. These are all actions one needs to take to become fluent.

Any one knew here-Selling options is the way to go rather then buying them :) Unless you are in the mood to gamble ;)
OptionsGeek (4 months ago)
Not true. Selling and Buying are two different styles of trading options. Both are used to make money. "Experts" push the Options Selling because they don't understand how to teach someone to Buy. Teaching "How to Sell Options" is a lot easier. Btw, most Hedge Funds BUY options. What do they know, right?

Carving my future has been a beautiful experience and is still presently opening up my mind to a lot of things that I have closed my eyes to for a long time, a lot of things that I was blind to that if I had paid just little more attention, I would have been bloody trading binary /forex options, it hasn't been easy but it has been worth it, I encourage all to begin right away trading options and even bitcoin with Mr Jeremiah he will get you what you want trading binary options and forex and get you to that place you want to be trading binary /forex options.

Not for beginners. They gave a strategy to save your butt. Buy both ways to never lose. Like shorting a stock the same time buying the stock. If all things are equal you will only profit. At worst break even. Of course using different brokers for each!

The issues with binary options is not that it is complicated. However, when an individual who is not knowledgeable to a certain level tries to trade binary options, he will definitely lose money. The issues is that people are very much driven by anxiety to make money and they don't take the time to learn the business.There is no luck in trading binary options it only works perfectly with the right strategy. Talking about the right strategy Mrs Brianna Martinez got the winning strategy her teaching and skills got me to where i am today. Contact her for more guidance at briannamartinez @gmail. com.

mr Ikhide you've said it all. Last year was a huge game changer for me. i made $58,000 in a month...honestly i have been scammed by a lot of brokers till i met Mrs Brianna Martinez who changed it all for me. thank you for making 2017 end with smiles.

In a brokerage account, when does the option is actually assigned? Let's say I sell one call at a $50 strike and the premium is $2. For it to be assigned at expiration, the stock has to be at break even or more? In this case it would be $52 or more. Or it just has to be above $50? For example $50.2
Ross Crombie (10 months ago)
If you are selling the option you are writing the option contract which means you are giving Someone Else the right but not the obligation to call the stock from you at the strike price on or anytime before the expiry date of the option contract. So it will be assigned when someone exercises their right, if the price of the stock is at the strike price at the expiry date they may not exercise their right to call the stock from you and just let the contract expire worthless. If you Buy a call option then as you mentioned you would exercise your right to buy the stock at $50 once the market price went above the strike price PLUS the premium you paid in your case it would be $52. You wouldnt exercise your right before the expiry date unless the price had gone well pass the strike price and even then you might still hold off until the day before expiry.

When they say 'sell the put option and simultaneously sell the stock' do they mean simultaneously sell the stock at the strike price of the put option? No, right?
Ross Crombie (10 months ago)
What it means to "sell" an option is, you are giving someone else the right but NOT the obligation to buy or sell some stock from you or to you at the strike price. To "sell" an option is the same as to "write" an option i.e write the agreement/contract. If you are "Selling/Writing" an option you ARE Obligated to follow through if the person on the other side of the option contract exercises their right to buy or sell the stock. In the case of a Put option and you are the writer/seller of the option, you have given someone the right to Put their stock to you at the strike price, which might be $10 while the market price is only $5.00 and falling lower!

When you use the put option, who is actually buying the stock at the strike price? I assume it has to be the company itself right? Cause no sane minded person would buy your stock at the strike price if it's significantly lower when you put it up for sale.

So many people peddling an "education" that achieves "remarkable results" in these comments. My advice? Experience is generally your best teacher. Study up and start small. Invest in what you know, and know what you invest in.
