In order to survive and thrive in today's financial markets, you must seriously consider the use of options in your investment endeavors. Options allow you to reap the same benefits as an outright stock or commodity trade, but with less risk and less money on the line. The truth is, you can achieve everything with options that you would with stocks or commodities--at less cost--while gaining a much higher percentage return on your invested dollars.
Updated to reflect today's dynamic times, this reliable resource provides you with the knowledge and strategies needed to achieve optimal results within the options arena. It quickly covers the basics--from how options are priced to using volatility to your advantage--before moving on to the four options trading strategies that have helped Lowell capture profits time and again: buying deep-in-the-money call options, selling naked put options, selling option credit spreads, and selling covered calls.
While none of the strategies highlighted here have changed since the first edition--because they're still as sound and successful as they've ever been--more examples of Lowell's favorite strategies are included in this Second Edition. In addition to outlining his proven options trading strategies, Lowell also shows you how to set up your own home business with the best options trading software, tools, and Web sites.
Options can be an essential part of your portfolio, when used properly. The Second Edition of Get Rich with Options shows you exactly what it takes to make it in this field and will put you in a better position to profit from the power of options. With this book as your guide, you'll quickly discover how--through safer speculation and hedging techniques--selling options can generate immediate income.
