Options income strategies are designed to take advantage of time decay — or theta — by collecting the option premium. These strategies enable investors to generate an income that may be less risky or more lucrative than simply buying dividend-paying stocks. The risk is that the underlying asset will move in a way that leads to an option being exercised, which could result in a loss on the trade or the unwanted sale or purchase of an asset. This webinar will focus on fully understanding the following options income-generating strategies: covered calls, cash secured puts and iron condors.
Options trading entails significant risk and is not appropriate for all investors. Certain complex options strategies carry additional risk. Before trading options, please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options. Supporting documentation for any claims, if applicable, will be furnished upon request.
There are additional costs associated with option strategies that call for multiple purchases and sales of options, such as spreads, straddles, and collars, as compared with a single option trade.
