Why It Works

No pun intended -- options give a trader ... "options"!
That flexibility provides exponentially more trading opportunities. You decide which ones fit best with your personal outcomes and trading plan. Consider a few ways options will create opportunity for you. You can:

  2. Collect your cash at the beginning of a trade 
  3. Control positions for a fraction of the cost
  4. Hedge your positions (trading "insurance")
  5. And so much more...
