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 don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
