Details

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to evaluate, buy, sell, and profit from stocks, this course is for you. By the end of it, you will be armed with investment tools that were once thought to be only for the pros!

You will begin by examining the origin of stock options and learn the real risks involved. Then, you will identify the jargon, symbols, and other peculiarities of options in a way that’s easy to understand. You will explore exchange-traded funds (ETFs), which offer exciting option investments you may eventually consider.

The course will then give you a look under the hood of option pricing so that you’ll understand what contributes to an option’s value. You will learn why some options are overpriced and why some are underpriced and know how to tell the difference before you trade. Above all, you will learn how to protect your portfolio and profit in a down market, an up market, or even a flat market. Learn to leverage your investment dollars for potential profits that surpass those possible with stocks.
