Options Strategies (ON-DEMAND) - OS


Course Summary

Options Strategies is an online training course about how options contracts can be used to achieve objectives in both hedging and for-profit trading. After introducing some useful terminology, the course explores the features that make options valuable for hedging and trading. We discuss the disadvantages of simple options strategies, and how these can be overcome by using combinations of bought and sold options contracts to create options spread strategies. You will learn about collars, three-way collars and other common options spread strategies for hedging. We will explore the use of spreads in directional trading, and you will see how spreads like butterflies and condors can be used in volatility trading. You will also learn about costless hedging structures that provide partial participation in favorable price moves.
