Options Trading Mastery is the best place to help you to learn everything you ever wanted to know about the art of option trading. My name is Owen and I've been trading options since 2002. Whether you're interested in the stock market, commodity futures or foreign currencies as your underlying market, options trading is not only one of the most interesting ways to trade, but also the most flexible and financially rewarding.
So let's begin our journey of discovery together . . . .
"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step" - Ancient Chinese Proverb.
The Stock Market is one of the largest markets in the world, so it is going to be around for a long time. This means that if we can master a few strategies that bring consistent profits, it is not inconceivable that we could set ourselves up with a reliable income stream. The fact is, one of the most profitable skills we can ever master, is the skill of options trading.
There are many option trading strategies "out there" such as strangles, straddles, bullish call debit spreads, bearish put debit spreads, ratio spreads, butterflies, condors, collars, calendar spreads, covered calls, iron condors, victory spreads and credit spreads. Many of these have their own variations, so understanding how to set them up and adjust when necessary, is knowledge of real value.
