Know Your Options
Many investors choose to make options a part of their trading strategy.
Options offer a wide variety of possibilities for the investor who is
looking to realize investment goals and broaden their trading opportunities.
Options can also help investors gain greater control over the performance
of their portfolio.
Some investors use options like insurance. For a period of time, they
can secure the value of their current holdings by purchasing an option
contract that offsets future market downside risk. More aggressive investors,
comfortable with anticipating future market movement, can capitalize by
purchasing an option that insures their profit when, and if, their forecast
is proved accurate.
