Options are one of the most useful and versatile risk management tools available to the everyday trader. For example, buying puts to help protect a stock or ETF you own can be a great way to help mitigate market risk — but it comes at a cost. Is there a way to reduce that cost? Yes, by creating a position called “a collar.” With a collar, investors can hedge against losses if the stock falls, while still allowing for some upward market participation. Join Dan Passarelli of Market Taker Mentoring and learn how to help protect your long-term stock and ETF investments with this cost-effective options strategy.
