How they work
 
The other day I wrote about why using options at times is such a very good thing to do. Cost of entry, the leverage they provide and the speed at which your profit can build are all positives when speaking of using options.
 
But I also said that for most people, the most simple of uses is the best idea. That’s the simple Call option if you think a stock is going to go up, or a put option if you think that it will be heading lower. With just those two, you can play the upside and downside of virtually any stock.

Options for Beginners

Recently I've had a rather unexpected increase in the amount of folks asking me about options.  I think the reason is simple, with so many stocks trading at insane prices, people are thinking that maybe going the option route makes more sense...but they're afraid of them. So for the next few issues we're going to break down common options and make it so that anyone can understand them. ( AND NOT FEAR THEM!) Basic options are just a trading tool and anyone can use them once you understand them.

For those of you who are new to the concept of options, take heart. Everyone started out just like you with no idea of what these things really are. For years the common thoughts were that options were for the "big boys" only and the "big boys" tried their best to keep it that way. Years ago I remember analysts saying that the average person shouldn't even think about trading options because he couldn't ever really understand the workings. Baloney! There is no reason that the average investor shouldn't use the tools available to make money in the market and options are some very important tools. So right off the bat, get it out of your mind that options are too advanced or too anything for you to understand. They are simply another investment tool, and if you understand how they work, and use them correctly, they will put money in your accounts.
