When speaking to people regarding my options trading hobby, I get a lot of weird looks. They think that I take on such a big risk and might loose one day everything. I do not deny that I take risk and that one day, I might have to buy a lot of stock.
In an attempt to clarify how I feel about option trading, I have put together a small slide show. Have a look and let me know what you think of it. Do you agree, or disagree? Do you see other reasons to trade or not to trade options?
As a next step, I plan to have some people sharing their experiences with option trading. The more info that gets shared, the better.
It is from reading a lot of blogs on passive investing, indexing, DGI and Financial independence that I decided to start the journey. By providing some answers to the most common questions, by sharing my own experience, by interviewing other people that trade option, by pointing people to other sources, I hope to contribute to a better understanding of options.
I look forward to your feedback and thoughts on this post and upcoming interview series.
