Investors who learn about options properly can use these very flexible instruments to protect themselves in down trading markets such as the one we are in. This allows them to protect against losses and maintain capital, which will allow them to have cash available when the market stabilizes at a lower level and next buying opportunity presents itself
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) March 19, 2007
With the market experiencing its most aggressive drop since 9/11, investors are looking for ways to protect their investments and profit in an unstable market. The Chicago Board of Trade is currently reporting record options trading. Emerging as the newest trend, options offer investors the opportunity to not only protect their investments but to also generate income for their portfolios in a volatile market. Wise investors have sought education in options trading. Many have discovered Options University as their sound resource for options training.
"Market movements, such as this, bring to the forefront the importance of profit protection. Gaining wealth in the market means absolutely nothing if you can not keep what you've made. All day long, analysts and other experts on CNBC are saying that the general public and even some institutions are not properly hedged. This is observation is obviously true but these experts never tell you how to do it. The fact is that options are the only perfect form of hedge available today. If you do not know about options, then you better get started learning about them soon, said Ron Ianieri, options expert and Chief Option Strategist at The Options University.
Options trading has been successfully used by the trillion dollar hedge fund industry and propriety bank desks for years, but now average investors are waking up to the benefits of exchange traded options. With the announcement that NASDAQ is entering the options product market in the third quarter of this year, investors are looking to options to make optimal money in a bearish market.
Although many were hit hard with this recent sudden fall on the market, Option University students' investments were protected because they utilized the option strategies they learned. "Initially, I did the options strategies without anyone's advice and got severely hurt when the buying call option strategy did not pan out for me. I then wrote off options for a long time. Ever since being introduced to Ron Ianieri of the Options University, I've been using his strategies on covered calls, on verticals and on buying in-the-money calls to cover the calls I've sold and have been extremely pleased with the results. I've had months where my return exceeded 30%. I've had two-week periods where my return has exceed 15%. Because I am using covered strategies, I am taking a very limited amount of risk, said Dominic Vricella, who has successfully traded options using the tips he gleaned from Options University seminars, webinars, teleseminars and The Options Mastery Series, a 28 interactive CD set with video instruction. The strategies that Ianieri teaches at Options University and in the Options Mastery Series are based on his 15 years of experience on the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, and as "The Specialist" at Dell Computers, one of the busiest books in history.
Recent statistics from Charles Schwab indicate that 69% of their investors consider options trading 'a great way to generate income'. 56% say options trading is part of their retirement investment strategy. NASDAQ's entrance into the market and the SEC pricing of options in pennies rather than nickels and dimes, will benefit investors by boosting prices and liquidity.
"Investors who learn about options properly can use these very flexible instruments to protect themselves in down trading markets such as the one we are in. This allows them to protect against losses and maintain capital, which will allow them to have cash available when the market stabilizes at a lower level and next buying opportunity presents itself," says Ianieri. "However, investors who really understand options can take the next step and get offensive in a down trading market like this. Options can be used to safely take advantage of any market; up, down, or even sideways. There is always opportunity in the market. It is just a matter of learning how to properly position yourself and options offer you the best, safest and most cost efficient way of doing so." With the third quarter NASDAQ options deadline looming, coupled with a declining market, Options University provides practical options strategies to help make optimal money and preserve current investments.
