Options trading involves buying and selling contracts that give the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy (call option) or sell (put option) a specific underlying asset at a predetermined price (strike price) within a specified period.
It depends on the trader's preferences, risk tolerance, and financial goals. However, options trading generally are a higher-risk, higher-reward opportunity than stocks.
Options trading may be speculative, but it is not necessarily gambling. Successful options trading requires analysis, strategy, risk management, and an understanding of market dynamics.
Options trading and intraday trading are not the same. Options trading involves contracts derived from underlying assets, used for various purposes like speculation and hedging. Intraday trading, however, focuses on buying and selling within the same trading day to profit from short-term price movements.
Yes, option selling can be profitable but carries potentially unlimited risk.
There are three types of options strategies: bullish, bearish, and neutral.
