Options are a popular investment tool to help generate income or lower the cost basis for a stock. With many equity markets at or near all-time highs, many investors turn to put options for potential portfolio protection. Join Peter Lusk, from the Options Institute at Cboe Global Markets, in this recorded webinar as he introduced the audience to some standard options strategies. He explored the profit and loss possibilities of various trades and what expectations you might consider for the underlying stock and volatility.
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.
