Getting Started with Options

Introduction to Options

February 13, 2024 Barbara Armstrong Beginner
This webcast is carefully structured to help new option traders along the leverage learning curve. Your education coach will introduce you to options terminology, clarify the common opportunities and risks, and explain the associated rights and obligations to help you become more confident with your understanding of options trading.
In this series kickoff webcast, we go back to the basics. What does it mean when a trader buys a call or a put? What is a trader committing to when they sell a call or put? What direction is the trader expecting the stock to go in? How much could a trader potentially make or lose? Is time working for the trader or against them?? We walked through and answered all of these questions and more. We also placed 3 example trades: a long call vertical, a short put and a long put. These example trades were placed on the thinkorswim paperMoney platform.
