Options can be the key to your investment philosophy

Options can be the key to your investment philosophy  

Weekly options have allowed traders to make shorter term bets on the market more now than ever.  Since options lose value due to time decay options can allow an investor to control stock for a fraction of its price and if the price appreciates slightly in value then a trader can make a significant return in a shorter period of time.  Traders know that they can make profit using call options as a stock goes up and put options as an investment moves down in price.  One should be mindful of implied volatility of options as traders should not buy options with high implied volatility.  These options can be sold with protection as options allow traders to combine them in various ways to control risk.  Remember to always be concerned in risk and to have appropriate money management
for your own financial situation
