Description

In this course, we introduce all of the basic information necessary to begin trading stock options. This is one of the key ways to become a successful stock trader. Because options differ from stocks in their risk, applicability, and usage, it is important to note those differences prior to initiating trading in those securities. Therefore, this course introduces all of the basic information necessary in order to begin trading these potentially exceptionally profitable instruments. 

Stock trading comes in many forms. However, I have found that stock options are the most methodological, systematic, and probability-based method in order to attack the markets! This course introduces the basic concepts needed to dip your toes into these securities. 

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who is interested in learning a new skill.
  • Anyone who is interested in their financial future.
