Episode #12 - Why Options?
If you're listening to this than you might already be asking yourself that question, why Options?  What are they?  How are they traded?  Why should I even consider them?  Well, you've come to the right place.  Over the past 15 years I've made it a goal of mine to teach others the wonderful powers behind options, and very strategic methods for using them to boost your portfolio, limit risk, and take advantage of a very unique trading tool.

Episode #11 - Covering A Put With A Put
In a previous episode we discussed the methodology behind covering a call with a call, and in this episode we're going to talk about the reverse of that, covering a put with a put.  Covered puts work essentially the same way as covered calls, except that the underlying equity position is a short instead of a long stock position, and the option sold is a put rather than a call. A covered put investor typically has a neutral to slightly bearish sentiment.

Episode #10 - Covering a Call With a Call
When you buy a call, you pay the option premium in exchange for the right to buy shares at a fixed price (strike price) on or before a certain date (expiration date). Investors most often buy calls when they are bullish on a stock or other security because it offers leverage.  In this video we go further into detail on what covering a call with a call looks like.

Episode #9 - What is a Put Option?
We talked about call options, now it's time to cover the second type of options contract, called a put option.  A put option is a contract that gives its holder the right to sell a number of equity shares at the strike price, before the option's expiry. If an investor owns shares of a stock and owns a put option, the option is exercised when the stock price falls below the strike price.  In this episode we go over the details of a put option, and how we trade them here at Trading Trainer.

Episode #8 - What Is A Call Option?
Trading Options can be a little confusing to a new trader.  They are complex trading tools.  But they have also been created to assist the overall market place.  Call options are a type of option that increases in value when a stock rises. They’re the best-known kind of option, and they allow the owner to lock in a price to buy a specific stock by a specific date. Call options are appealing because they can appreciate quickly on a small move up in the stock price. So that makes them a favorite with traders who are looking for a big gain.  In this episode we'll discuss what a call option is and how we use them at Trading Trainer.
