Lesson 1.5: Benefits and Risks of Trading Options
Michael Gustin July 5, 2023
Benefits:
1. **Leverage**: Options allow you to potentially make a large profit from a relatively small investment. You can control a larger number of shares for the same amount of money compared to buying the underlying stock directly.
2. **Hedging**: Options can be used to protect your portfolio from adverse market movements. For instance, put options can be used to hedge against a potential drop in the value of a stock.
3. **Income generation**: Options can also be used to generate income through strategies such as covered calls.
Risks:
1. **Potential for large losses**: While leverage can amplify gains, it can also amplify losses. If the market doesnâ€™t move in the direction you expected, you could lose the entire investment.
2. **Complexity**: Options can be complex and difficult to understand, especially for beginners.
3. **Shortterm focus**: Options are generally more suited to shortterm trading strategies, which can be riskier and more demanding than longerterm investing.
