http://www.options-trading-education.com/24466/what-are-the-risks-of-trading-options/ What Are the Risks of Trading Options? By www.Options-Trading-Education.com You can make money trading options and you can also lose your trading capital. What are the risks of trading options and how do you avoid them? The Options Industry Council discusses the benefits and risks of options trading. Most strategies used by options investors have limited risk but also limited profit potential. Options strategies are not get-rich-quick schemes. Transactions generally require less capital than equivalent stock transactions. They may return smaller dollar figures but a potentially greater percentage of the investment than equivalent stock transactions. Even investors who use options in speculative strategies such as writing uncovered calls don't usually realize dramatic returns. The potential profit is limited to the premium received for the contract. The potential loss is often unlimited. While leverage means the percentage returns can be significant, the amount of cash required is smaller than equivalent stock transactions. Buy call or put options and your risk is limited to the premium that you pay. Sell uncovered calls and puts and your risk could be extreme. Why is that? Buying Options Buying options on stocks has profit potential and limited risk. Buying call options on stocks results in profits if the stocks go up in price and buying puts on stocks results in profits if the stocks fall in price. Buying options on stocks allows an investor or trader to secure his opportunity for a profit with only a small portion of the price of buying the stock itself. This investment leverage allows an options trader to spread his investment capital among several options investment opportunities instead of tying his funds up with a single stock purchase. Buying options on stocks also reduces investment risk as the most a trader can lose is the price of the options contract. A common approach of beginning traders is to buy a call on a stock that they think will rise in price. The risk in trading options in this manner is that the trader might lose the premium paid for the contract but no more. Selling Options Over the long term options sellers make more money than options buyers. But the risk is such that options sellers need deep pockets to handle the occasional large loss. The one fairly safe manner of selling options is in selling covered calls. In this case the seller owns the stock and takes no loss if the price goes up. And he or she receives the premium for risking the loss of the stock. But selling call options without owning the stock can be risky. The trader receives a premium for selling the call contract. This is his profit so long as the buyer does not exercise the contract. If the price of the equity rises sufficiently the trader will exercise the option in order to buy the equity. When this happens the seller needs to purchase the stock at the current market price. However, he will sell it to the buyer at the strike price of the contract. He will lose money on the difference. In such a case of selling call options without owning stock the loss for the seller is the difference between the market price and the strike price plus fees and commissions. If the equity rises significantly in price the trader can lose a lot of money when selling call options without owning the stock. In the end serious options traders employ strategies in which they mix calls and puts, buys and sells in such a way as to make a profit, limit their cash outflow and limit risk. https://youtu.be/j7Q7d_tUYx0

7 Risks of Short Selling in Futures and Options [HINDI]
 
11:19
Futures and Options short selling is riskier compared to the short selling in the equity or cash segment. The profit is limited but the loss is unlimited. In case, the price starts increasing then it is a double whammy for the trader i.e. loss in trade and the margin money requirement might increase. The second risk is that Futures and Options is a time-specific trade unlike equity segment i.e. trader has to close the position before the expiry. In case he/she decides to carry forward the position then there is a cost attached to it. A trader has to close the existing trade and re-enter a new contract. In case the stock becomes more volatile then the margin money requirement might increase. A trader might not be comfortable in this position & might book loss and close the position. Futures and Options short selling requires very strict and non-negotiable discipline in terms of stop loss. Sometimes, the trader incurs loss due to bad timing of the trade. The best time to trade is near the peak & it is very difficult to identify the same. The Futures and Options short selling is most suitable for a bear market.

Using Options to Manage Risk | Nancy Davis | Expert View

Nancy Davis, managing partner and CIO of Quadratic Capital Management, joins Real Vision to provide an overview of the options market. She reviews the key Greek metrics that determine option prices, in addition to revealing a handful of trading tips for new investors. The only financial TV that matters. Start a 14-day free trial on Real Vision to watch more interviews like this: https://rvtv.io/2NxM6Tt Transcript: I trade options for a living and do it professionally, but I think-- I really believe in it. I think having defined risk, having asymmetric payoffs, and reversing the order of traditional risk management, if you think about traditional-- just take a CTA or a macro portfolio, the whole way that risk is managed is based on historical correlations, which may or may not hold into tomorrow's environment, and also using stop losses. And for me, I think that's just backwards. I think creating a portfolio and risk-managing it only after you've lost money is wrong. You know, you shouldn't be losing investors money and then managing risk. So stop losses to me are sort of the enemy. And it's funny because people always talk about stop losses like they're some great-- you know, oh, we have really tight stop losses. And if you think about it, it just means, when their shorts go up, they liked being short before, and now they're buying it and covering that short after it's gone in their face, or when they're long a security and they really like whatever that security is, and they sell it after it's gone down. So I think a very safe way for investors to kind of start dabbling in options is only buy, whether you're buying calls, puts, payer swaptions, receiver swaptions, if you buy options, you know the most that you can lose is limited to the premium at risk. And so it's almost like a debit card strategy, where you can get a levered payout, but you have a defined amount of premium at risk. I'm personally not a fan of delta one derivatives. I know that probably sounds bizarre that I-- you know, we run a portfolio that's just derivatives, but I really prefer options. I think options are the best way to invest, the best ways to have that attractive risk/reward, that attractive asymmetry, where heads I win but tails I don't lose too much, or at least I know how much I'm going to lose, whereas a future, it's more like a credit card, where you have a lot of exposure to an asset that you're not fully paying for it, but you have margin calls. And the margin calls can change intraday. So people always complain about theta for people who like to buy options. I'm like, well, when you buy an option-- say you buy a long-dated put, maybe a one-year put-- you're locking in the cost to borrow today by owning that put option, because options are priced off the forward. So it's another way to win on short exposures because, when a security goes down, the cost of borrow goes up. And so Home Capital Group, is the Canadian homebuilder stock-- Warren Buffett ended up bailing it out, but when the security started to go down, the borrow can shoot up to infinity. It was 200% the first, you know, 15% down. So you could have had tremendous alpha and been sitting short that stock for three years but not made any money, because 200% borrow means the security has to go to zero in six months just to break even. So I think thinking about shorts, especially in options, is a better way to short the market.

Hidden Risks of Selling Put Options (And How You Can Minimize It)
 
08:42
There are two types of options: Call Options – it gives the option buyer the right to buy the stock at an agreed fixed price at an agreed date in the future. Put Options – it gives the option buyer the right to sell the stock at an agreed fixed price at an agreed date in the future. When you sell options, the options buyer pay you money(i.e. premiums) upfront. If the option expires worthless by the expiration date, you keep the money for free. However, if the option is exercised by the option buyer, you will have the obligation to buy/sell the stocks at the agreed price. Let’s look at an example. A stock option contract is an option to buy/sell 100 shares of the underlying stock. Today is 11th Oct 2017. Let say the 20 Oct 17 $155 PUT for Apple Inc is worth $1.25. If you sell 1 PUT option, you will get paid $1.25 x 100 = $125 Now, you have $125 in your pocket. There are two possible scenarios: Scenario 1: The market price of Apple Inc rises above $155 on 20 Oct 17. In this case, the option expires worthless. Why? The option contract gives the option buyer the right to sell Apple Inc at $155 per share. But, the option buyer can easily get a better selling price in the stock market since the market price is above $155. There’s no point for the option buyer to exercise the option. Results: You keep the option premiums for free. Scenario 2: The market price of Apple Inc falls below $155 on 20 Oct 17. In this case, the option buyer will exercise the option. Why? Because the option buyer can sell Apple shares at $155 per share while the market price for Apple is below $155. In other words, the option buyer gets a better selling price by exercising the option contract. When the option is exercised, you will have the obligation to buy the Apple shares at $155 per share even though the market price at that time is less than $155 per share. Now, you have a good understanding about how the option selling works. What are the hidden risks of selling options for monthly income? The stock price goes down to zero When you sell PUT options, you have the obligation to buy back the stocks at the agreed price when the option buyer exercises the option. Let’s continue with the Apple Inc example above. You sold one 20 Oct 17 $155 PUT option for Apple Inc, and you got paid $1.25 x 100 = $125. 9 days later on 20th Oct 17, the Apple share price dropped to zero. The option buyer exercised the option. That means you had to buy 100 Apple shares at $155 per share even though the market price for Apple has dropped to zero. This is the worst kind of scenario for selling PUT option. The stock price will only fall to zero when the underlying company goes bankrupt. Here’s the good news. There are always warning signs that you can look out for when the underlying company is in trouble. For example, their earnings fall short of expectations or they are unable to meet their debt obligations. Companies hardly just go bankrupt all of a sudden without any warning signs. The stock price keeps going down What if the stock price just keeps going down? Let’s use the same Apple Inc example. You sold one 20 Oct 17 $155 PUT option for Apple Inc, and you got paid $1.25 x 100 = $125. 9 days later on 20th Oct 17, the Apple share price dropped to $150. The option buyer exercised the option, and you had to buy the Apple shares at $155 even though the market price at that time is $150. So, you are holding 100 Apple shares with a cost price of $155-$1.25 = $153.75. Here, you use your option premiums to offset your cost price to lower your break-even price. If the Apple share price goes up to $153.75, you will be able to break even. But, what if the Apple stock price keeps going down? If the Apple stock price keeps going down, one way to salvage the trade is to sell covered CALL options. With the premiums collected from selling covered CALL options, you are able to lower your break-even price further. Will the stock price never go back up again? Unlikely. Why? First, stock market goes up and down. But, it generally goes up over time. After 2008 financial crisis, stock market recovered quickly and is now making new highs. Similarly, the stock market rebounded after the great depression in the 1930s.

What are Call and Put Options? How to Hedge Portfolio Against Risk?
 
17:18
Build Your Portfolio: https://en.samt.ag/user-registration What are call and put options, and how to hedge your portfolio against risk? In this short video you will learn everything about hedging, risks and options. At the end of the video, I will show you a fantastic strategy how you can secure your portfolio against extreme market movements, using a strategy that costs next to nothing. Let’s look at a short story first… David wants to sell a house for €500,000, near the house there is some vacant land. Two parties, Ryan and Steve are interested in buying it. Ryan wants to build an expensive resort there while Steve wants to build a low-quality school. Mike, another guy, is interested in buying David’s house but he doesn’t have the full amount with him, and won’t have it until the end of the month. He’s worried that, David might sell the house to someone else while he’s waiting for his money. So, he gives €5000 premium, non-returnable, to David, to take the house off the market for a month. While Mike’s waiting for his money to arrive, three things can happen. If Ryan buys the vacant land near the house and builds the resort, it will increase the value of David’s house. Say, to 600,000 €. In that case Mike will be very happy since according to the agreement, he only has to pay 500,000 € for an asset that’s priced at 600,000 now. The second scenario is that Steve buys that land and builds his cheap school, which will decrease the value of the house, say to 400,000 €. In that case Mike’s still locked in at the price of 500,000, so he won’t buy it. In this case his total loss is the 5000 €, the premium amount. There’s a third scenario, where neither Steve nor Ryan buys the vacant land, which means that David’s house will be valued at 500,000. Let me show you how you can hedge your portfolio with a cost effective strategy using options. I’ve included this example this video because, it works! You can use a put option to hedge your investment. For instance, you have a portfolio of €100 000, and you buy a put option for €100 (the right to sell your portfolio at €95 000), since the price of the asset is greater than the strike price, it’s an out-of-the-money hedge, which makes the option cheaper to buy. Let’s see how this hedge will work. Scenario 1 Your portfolio falls to €60 000, but your option gave you the right to sell it for €95 000. Despite a huge drop of 40% in your portfolio’s value, you didn’t lose much. Scenario 2 In the second scenario your portfolio’s value goes up to €120 000, your put option for €100 expires worthless, which is a tiny loss since you just made a healthy €20 000 profit. If you just hedge against the extreme volatility it’s not very expensive, and for a long investment horizon it is beneficial if you don’t have huge losses, the average effect makes you a winner. Let’s take a look at what we’re up against as an investor, so when we hedge, what exactly are the risks that can we hedge against? According to the modern portfolio theory (mpt), there are two types of portfolio risks 1. Systematic risk: It basically refers to the market risks. You, as an investor cannot diversify away these types of risks which include events such as recessions, wars and interest rates. Even portfolio risk adjustment is unable to reduce this risk since many risk events are related to black Mondays or Fridays where the market opens at a much lower level. Systematic risk can be hedged or insured against an event with options. A good diversified portfolio needs less options (or insurance) to insure against the systematic risk. 2. Unsystematic risk: The unsystematic risks, also known as “specific risks”, are specific to any individual stock. You can diversify away the unsystematic risks by increasing the number of stocks in your portfolio. Take a look at this graph: It displays component of the stock’s return. These returns are not correlated with the movement of the general market. There’s a general perception that risk is dangerous, a negative connotation attached to the term ‘risk’. As an investor you must understand risk objectively. Hope you enjoyed the video. If you’d like to learn about our Algo Trading strategies, you can subscribe to our member’s list. Link’s in the description. At SAMT AG, We make diversified portfolio, which is a great choice against normal market risk. It provides a hedge against wild market swings, such as a drop of 30% or more. We hedge portfolios with an ‘out of the money option’, which is way cheaper since its way out of the money, but the protection it allows against unlikely events is extremely useful, your portfolio is hedged. You reap benefits of hedging as long as the market is not down, in fact you will have over-proportion or a significant advantage in your ‘risk-to-value’ ratio with our hedging strategy. When the price of your portfolio exceeds the strike price, you start making very healthy gains.
Iron Condor Risk: A Naked Short at Expiration | Options for Volatility Course
 
06:09
Options involve risks and are not suitable for all investors as the special risks inherent to options trading may expose investors to potentially rapid and substantial losses. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options (https://www.theocc.com/about/publications/character-risks.jsp) before investing. Options traders often trade vertical spreads—like those that comprise iron condors—because they offer defined risk. However, if these positions aren’t monitored, it can be possible to end up with a naked short option at expiration, creating a new, and potentially unlimited, risk profile. Learn how and why this happens, and what traders can do to manage that risk.

Hedging Risk With Options
 
03:27
http://www.Options-Trading-Education.com - Hedging Risk With Options Hedging risk with options is a common practice of producers and consumers of commodities, companies doing business internationally, and owners of stocks, futures, and precious metals. By buying calls or puts the options trader locks in the equity price and can sell in the case of puts or buy in the case of calls until the options contract expires. Euro options trading is currently popular with currency traders as the debt crisis leaves us wondering if the European Union will survive in its current form. Gold mining companies commonly sell calls on gold bullion as a hedge against risk of a fall in gold price. The same companies may also buy puts on their own stock in order to protect against a fall in stock price. Transportation companies are well known for hedging risk with options and futures contracts on petroleum products. The use of options to hedge risk is not the same as a stock, commodities, or currency speculator trading options in search of a profit. Hedging risk with options is done to protect investments and cash flow. Thus the company or individual doing this limits himself to the stocks he owns, the currencies he trades, or the commodities that he buys and uses or makes and sells. Beet farmers trade options on beet futures and airlines trade options on aviation fuel of simply crude oil. Companies in the US dealing with companies in Europe may need to trade options on the Euro. This limits the range of equities that these folks trade but, since they are protecting their investments that is the limit of their interest. On the other hand a currency speculator can choose the currency on which he wants to trade options based solely on profit potential. He can buy calls on gold or sell puts on oil simply because he expects to profit from a big price move. The risk scenario is different for those hedging risk with options versus speculators. A US company buying machine parts from a German company will need to pay in Euros, no matter what the exchange rate. The only risk the company sees is a change of the exchange rate between signing a business contract and payment for receipt of the product. The company already has the cash or credit to make payment and there is typically no leverage involved. On the other hand a currency speculator may sell puts on the Euro versus the Yen if he expects the Euro to recover. He will be making this trade using a margin account and stands to lose the entire margin account or even more if the EU comes not come to happy resolution of the debt dilemma and the Euro falls significantly instead of rising. This same scenario plays out when buying puts on LinkedIn or any other stock. The risk of substantial loss when selling puts and calls is why the business of selling puts is commonly limited to large institutional traders with very deep pockets. Large US multinationals may have even deeper pockets but their business in hedging risk with options is commonly limited to reducing currency risk in international business transactions. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VydLjeFpzCg

You may think options are a great trading instrument - if a market goes down, you can get many multiples of it. But as we know there's nothing like a free lunch in the stock market. 1) Potential losses - we have a high chance of a worthless expiry. 2) Complex - not as simple as going long (buying) or short (selling). 3) Liquidity - the underlying price of the stock and/or the strike price could be illiquid. 4) Costs - spreads often high - commissions high. 5) Time decay - can negatively impact your option price.

LOCKING METHOD : Making ZERO RISK in Binary Options Trading - options Strategies
 
10:09
LOCKING METHOD : Making ZERO RISK in trading - Binary Options Trading Strategy if You NEED FREE Signals, Conect with me !!! 1. Visit My Twitter Account https://goo.gl/XgsUgZ 2. On My Twitter Account, Find Top Post (pinned post) and Visit SIGNAL LINK RISK WARNING YOUR CAPITAL MIGHT BE AT RISK This Video Is Not Investment Advice ------------------------------ Locking method Locking means opening orders in opposite directions with aproximately the same volume (depending on the trader's preference) on the same asset with the same expiration time. There are a lot of traders who use this method, and they prefer using it in binary options (15-45 minute expiration) rather than in turbo options. ------------------------------------- First Example (both orders are profitable) A trader made a $10 investment and bought a CALL option, but ufter some time he understood that there might be some factors that could have a negative impact on the result of this trading. At the point he decided to be on the safe side, and made a $8 investment (amount of potential return on the first investment) and bought a PUT option in the same place. The trader's new information turned out to be correct, and by the end of the expiration time the rate did change direction. Both investment were profitable. --------------------------------------- Second Example (return on the first investment covers the losses of the second option) If in the example above the rate had continued to decrease, the return on the first investment would have covered the losses of the second investment and the overall profit would be $0. Here's how to would work. Say that the trader bought a PUT option, but the rate starts to decrease. Potential profit from the first investment was $8.4, so after some time he opens another option with the same volume ($8.4) into different direction in order to reduce risk. The first option is profitable (+$8.40) and there is a loss of $8.40 from the second option. The trader neither wins nor loses anything. --------------------------------------- Third Example ( Minimum losses with minimal risk) There is another, least likely scenario : a trader buys an option, the rate stars to move in to the predicted direction, the trader uses the locking method and buys another option into the opposite direction, and than the rate stars a rapid turnaround movement. In such case there will be a minimum loss with minimal risk. ----------------------------------------- Conculsion Experienced market participants use this method in order to reduce trading risk. if the rate by the and of expiration time is inside the profit range of the lock applied, then both options will be profitable. In other cases locking make it possible to decrease the risk of loss. This method is not recomended for trading with turbo options and for those traders who are not that experienced.

Episode 17: Brain Cancer Surgery Options...and Risks
 
04:24
Sam describes his meeting with Dr. Jeffrey Weinberg (the best neurosurgeon at MD Anderson, according to everyone Sam spoke with) where they discussed two surgical approaches to removing the tumor and the risks of each approach. The traditional surgical approach of cutting out the entire tumor was deemed too risky because of the location of the tumor and the potential risk that Sam could be paralyzed on his left side if a vital nerve bundle were just nicked during the procedure. Based on that unacceptable risk, Dr. Weinberg recommended that Sam undergo a laser thermal ablation surgical procedure that would kill the tumor cells from the inside out without doing damage to the healthy brain tissue and nerve bundle surrounding the tumor. The Taylors agreed with Dr. Weinberg and began preparations for the laser thermal ablation procedure in the coming days.

Lowering Risks with Simple Option Strategies | Skinny on Options: Data Science
 
15:18
Can active investing with options reduce the risks involved in a simple "passive" investing strategy? Michael Rechenthin, PhD studied three different "active" approaches using options. Two approaches were based upon a Covered Call strategy. One strategy sold the at-the-money (ATM) Calls in the SPX and the other sold the Calls with a 30 Delta. The third active approach was shorting Puts using the ATM Strike in the SPX. His study of the SPX used data from 2000 to the present. A results table included the average yearly return, median yearly return, Standard Deviation of yearly returns and percentage of weeks profitable. The passive approach was consistently at the bottom. The returns generated were lower than two of the active approaches while also having a higher Standard Deviation (SD) of the yearly returns (demonstrating greater risk) than those two active approaches. The passive approach also saw the largest drawdowns. An important observation was made that Implied Volatility (IV) was greater than realized volatility on 82% of the days on the study. A graph of the yearly maximum drawdowns showed that being long the S&P 500 had the worst drawdowns, while the Covered ATM Call and the short ATM Put strategies "had the best bang for your buck, with a third less volatility of returns." This proves that an option strategy is actually safer than long outright positions. Watch this segment of The Skinny On Options Data Science with Tom Sosnoff, Tony Battista and Dr. Data (Mike Rechenthin Ph.D.) for the valuable takeaways and the results of Mike’s backtesting the passive approach to three different active (but simple) approaches using options. ======== tastytrade.com ======== Hosted by Tom Sosnoff and Tony Battista, tastytrade is a real financial network with 8 hours of live programming five days a week during market hours.

An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Hypothetical Performance Disclosure: Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
