Description

Welcome to Options Basics!

Are you looking to make money while the market is going up, down or sideways? If so, options are the way to go.

This introductory course will teach you how you can trade options with the best practices to follow when starting out in the confusing world of options trading. The material is taught in text/graphical format while I provide backing explanations during each video lecture. If you are looking for alternatives to trading expensive stocks or you're perhaps not comfortable dishing out thousands of dollars on a single trade, look no further. My course offers a budget friendly and profit maximizing approach to inexperienced traders whom wish to generate additional income via options. By the end of this course you will be comfortable with the concept of options and you will have the confidence to make that first trade!

This course teaches you the following in a simple, effective and very friendly way:

  • What options are and how you can make money on trading them
  • Charting - How to read stock charts to analyze trends
  • Picking the right stocks to trade options on
  • Picking desirable options that are within budget 
  • Trading platform (software) you can use to trade
  • Various bank accounts that you may need to consider opening
  • Do's and Don't of trading
  • Opening a practice (paper money) account
  • Looking ahead once you get comfortable with the basics
Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for beginners who are not familiar with options and/or are not comfortable investing a lot of capital when starting
  • You should take this course if you want to learn the safest approach to trading options
  • This course is NOT meant for students that want to learn about different tools, analytics and startegies that help predict market trends.

When one teaches, two learn!

Electrical engineer, graduated from the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I've been trading stocks and options for a combined 5+ years. I wish to teach complex material to students on Udemy by presenting courses in an audio and visual format while using friendly and simple language. I combine personal experience with course content to make the course interesting and memorable.
