Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) September 8, 2007
With unrelenting market turmoil over the past few months, and NASDAQ's entry into the market place in the fourth quarter of this year, more and more investors are aggressively seeking out option as a viable tool to protect their investments, reports Options University, an educational company that trains investors how to properly and safely trade options.
Options trading, often thought of as risky, is now being lauded as a way to protect investments and NASDAQ's entry into the options market in the fourth quarter validates the importance of options trading. BusinessWeek (34, volume 4044) recently reported that during the waiting period of the acquisition for Dow Jones by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, stock holders had been increasingly buying options to protect themselves in the event that the deal didn't go through and the stocks were to fall.
Amidst surging market volatility, such as the one experienced recently due to signs of trouble in the US credit market, many traders have missed opportunities to leverage profitability because of a lack of knowledge of options trading. "Unfortunately, many investors don't take advantage of the protection options can provide. If investors had been properly protected by options, they would not have sustained huge losses and would be in a position to take advantage of a 'buy low' opportunity," said Ron Ianieri, Chief Options Strategist for Options University.
But the tide is turning. Options trading is now enjoying its own renaissance. With NASDAQ entering into the options market, coupled with the current stock market volatility, the demand for options training has dramatically increased. In addition to supplementary webinars and seminars in America, Options University and Ianieri are currently conducting a series of trainings in both Singapore and Australia, as a result of overwhelming requests to learn options. People are finally able to learn nuts and bolts, as well in-depth techniques to successfully trade options. "The fact is, when taught and used properly, options are an investor's best friend, as well as a safety tool. Options are the purest form of hedge," said Ianieri.
Growing its reputation as an industry leader, Options University also notes it is experiencing record numbers of attendees in their live seminars and webinars as well as a threefold increase in students of their popular home study courses. Option University CEO, Brett Fogle, said, "We see enrollments skyrocketing, which tells us that investors are finally beginning to understand the importance and power of options. Mainstream investors are now actively seeking quality education on how to appropriately use options in their portfolios."
