The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!

What are the options?
 
Last week we closed out some call option positions that rewarded us quite smartly. We had options on the SPY which is the proxy for the S&P 500, and we bought them in the 10’s and sold them in the 30’s.
 
We had calls on the DIA’s, which is the Proxy ETF for the DOW 30, and we were in them in the 5’s and out at the 17 level. They were very nice gains, and it evidently encouraged a lot of our readers to ask about options. What are they, how do they work?  etc.  So, I’m going to do a little refresher here about options, and why we like to use them at times.

3.18.2017 - Selling Puts, the how and why Bookmark

Today's free investment newsletter is posted and today we do an in-depth tutorial about selling puts. We discuss what a put is, and why someone would want to sell a naked put, versus buying a put. We discuss the risks, the rewards and a couple ways to play it.  Like any investment that offers an oversized return, there's an oversized risk, but that risk can be managed properly. 

So if you've ever seen the commercial where the broker and his client are talking and the broker says "well, we might consider selling a put", and the client says "That sounds interesting".... you'll find out what's interesting about it in this weeks free investing newsletter.
