Anemic IRA Returns From Sagging Stock Market Prompt Investors to Sell Options Against Their Portfolios to Boost Retirement Returns

Options are the truest form of hedge in today’s markets, and an excellent way to create income from slow moving stocks in your portfolio. I’ve taught hundreds of investors how to increase their returns and limit their risk by using options, and I can teach anyone to do the same.

In today’s uncertain markets, investors are growing increasingly frustrated with their poor or non-existent stock market profits. A recent Barron’s article highlights how the largest demographic of investors, our aging baby-boomers, are turning to options to increase their income and returns on their underperforming portfolios. Investors are turning to options selling in order to bring in monthly premiums from the sale of these options against the stocks held in their IRA’s and other long-term portfolios. Options expert and former professional floor trader Ron Ianieri reveals how the professionals use options to make money, with very little risk, and to boost retirement returns by multiples of up to 10 times. “When used correctly, options are actually less risky than stocks and can provide much greater percentage returns with less capital outlay. Investors can sell options against their existing stocks for monthly premium collection in sideways markets,” Ianieri states.

According to Jim Cramer, on CNBC’s hit show ‘Mad Money,’ options are the fastest growing segment of the markets today. Brokerage accounts are reporting record increases in the number of new options accounts being opened, and options trades are up by as much as 50% over last year. “This shows that the public at large is finally ready to embrace options as a trading vehicle they can trust,” according to Ianieri.

Ianieri says: “Options are the truest form of hedge in today’s markets, and an excellent way to create income from slow moving stocks in your portfolio. I’ve taught hundreds of investors how to increase their returns and limit their risk by using options, and I can teach anyone to do the same.”
