This is not your typical "get rich quick" options trading course. I'm not creating this class from my hypothetical yacht and I'm not recording it in front of my Lambos that I rented just to impress you.

I am a conservative, buy & hold investor. For the vast majority of my investing career, I only held S&P index funds that mirrored the market. I had written off options trading as gambling and speculation. I beat inflation simply by dollar-cost-averaging.

But eventually I dipped my toes into the options world and I soon realized that there were many different trading strategies that I could use on top of my existing positions that would enhance my gains. I could allow my stock to continue to compound upon itself with no additional tax implications as I leveraged my existing positions to create gains from additional options positions.

This introductory course teaches you the basic building blocks of stock options trading, the skills that are essential to learn before enacting complicated options strategies.

We'll spend the majority of the course not only discussing call options and put options, but the basic principals associated with being long or short a position. We will also cover a few basics like how different options properties affect the value of an option's premium and breakeven price. We'll touch on the Greek factor of Theta and its time decay effect. Liquidity, volume, open interest, and the bid-ask spread are covered as well. We'll explain the difference between an initial credit and debit and their respective properties. And additional lessons will cover tax implications and compounding effects that come with selling stock, short-term versus long-term capital gains, and properties of long-term equity anticipation securities. The class also rounds things out with an understanding of short selling, inverse ETFs, quarterly earnings considerations, an overview of fundamental research, and how to leg into and out of a position.

If you've always been concerned with the risk associated with trading options, this class will ease you into things. The purpose here is for you to have a solid understanding of these foundational concepts before continuing on to learn complex, multi-leg trades.
