When selling options, investors are hoping to take advantage of time decay. If the options expire worthless then the seller gets to keep the premium received. However, selling options is slightly more complex than purchasing options and comes with significant risks. In this webinar, we will cover the following topics:
- Selling calls and selling puts
- Risks/potential rewards when selling options
- Key considerations when selling options
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.
