When investors first think about options, they tend to concentrate on the basic approaches: buying calls, selling calls, buying puts and selling puts. Rightfully so. But there's much more to consider beyond these four simple strategies. Exchange-listed options, if used correctly, can offer a variety of ways to apply your knowledge about the stocks, ETFs or indexes you're trading.
With options, you can better control your capital and define your trade outcomes. At times, a single option may be the answer. At others, an investor might combine long and short positions or establish multiple expirations around a single underlying asset. Either way, and regardless of your investing experience, options could make sense for your portfolio, as they can help you to creatively manage risk, generate income and respond to unpredictable market conditions. A series of upcoming talks, sponsored by the Options Industry Council, will explain how you can get started.
