Options - Trading Strategies

The use of options exponentially increases the flexibility available to a market investor, trader or speculator. Strategies can be individually tailored to reflect particular market views. The risk-profile of a market operator can be increased or decreased in a customized fashion. While the names change from market to market, there are a number of common option-related strategies. Although the potential number of strategies is infinite, this course outlines those that are most frequently encountered, and explains when they are appropriate.
