HOW TO TRADE OPTIONS


COOPERMAN

Recommended Posts

Every day I see guys on CNBC talking about OPTION contracts and how they are a great way to make money.

I have been trading long enough to know where there is Reward there is also risk.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get started trading options?  

Thank you

The main reason options are so popular in the US is because CFDs (spread bets) are banned by SEC, ESMA one step beyond.

With SB you get knocked out as soon as your stop is hit.  This forces you to keep coming back for more.  With an option, you can sit on it till the last minute if necessary.  Hence less repeat business, so not offered to UK pond life.

    • I remember the BBC reporting in  front of world trade building 7 saying it had collapsed when it was clearly still standing and then hours later it "suddenly" collapsed - Sept 11th 2001 David Icke did a great publication on that "terrorist attack" which lead to UK/USA forces invading Iraq and afghanistan, along with implementing onerous checks at all airports since - 20 years later we still haven't had another plane hijacked and crashed into anything, probably because if it had it would prove that aviation fuel can't melt steel structural joists, or bring a building down in a vertical fashion as per a controlled explosion I'm yet to be convinced on Covid, but it absolutely fits in with the totalitarian tiptoe Icke says is happening and fits in being an absolute valid reason to vaccinate the entire globe    
    • Thank you. The whole episode has been disastrous from the start and there looks to be no let up as Johnson is expected tonight to announce a 4 week lockdown extension again using false models and bad science as 'reasons'. Very sorry to hear of your wife's vax complications, twitter is awash with similar stories but MSM ignores it all. The AZ seems particularly worrisome, the US won't use it at all (they donated their tranche to the 3rd world) but nearly all in the UK get it. Most of whom will already have had contact with covid and have natural immunity anyway. As in the Russel Brand video, MSM does not have the right to just dismiss anything they don't like the sound of as 'conspiracy theories' and completely ignore them. Eminent scientists being de-platformed, astronomical NHS waiting lists, undiagnosed life threatening illnesses flooding A+E, complete loss of faith in major institutions (WHO, FDA, CDC, NHS, etc.), 37% fewer small businesses in the US. The damage being done is appalling and there is no end in sight.   .          
    • Yep - If the major cycle working out since 2016 repeats as its done for the past 225 years then the USA Indices are UP, UP,UP until the mid 2030's - corrections will be nothing like 2000-2009 corrections  Although chart is up to date - I wrote the below pre 2015 (can't remember exactly when) - as an absolute min I'd expect 22-25,000 for the SP500 to end on in 2034
