Why trade Options?

Trading Options enables you to reduce risk and lock-in profits in all types of markets.

Just as fictional detective Sherlock Holmes applies his keen senses to solve mysteries, NEoWave founder and trading advisor Glenn Neely applied his keen senses to solve a perplexing mystery: What is the best-performing investment strategy?

Eventually, he tracked down the most reliable, best-performing strategy: Trading Options instead of buying stock.

In a recorded interview, "The Benefits of Trading Options," Mr. Neely explains why he began researching Options. In a nutshell, 3 of the 4 markets he had followed for decades went sideways for 3 years. Trading those markets was a frustrating, ongoing challenge. After successfully applying Options strategies, he discovered that trading Options enables you to reduce risk and lock-in profits during sideways and choppy markets.

Key points regarding Options:

  • Options are a right to purchase an equity or ETF at a particular price in the future, and they always have an expiration date.
  • Trading Options enables you to create a profitable long-term portfolio by letting your profits run and cutting your losses short.
  • With Options, your profit potential is greater – you can lock-in more profit. Plus, it gives you much more buffer on the downside. The market can drop, and you'll still make money.
"There are four reasons why I left Futures Markets and now trade Options. Options can substantially increase your odds of profitable trading. Options provide advantages NO other investment vehicle can offer!" Glenn Neely, NEoWave founder and trading advisor

Why trade Options? Glenn Neely summarizes the 4 advantages:

  1. It costs less to buy an Option (which represents 100 shares of stock) than to own 100 shares of stock.
  2. That lower cost provides leverage (a $90 strike Call on a $100 stock will cost about $1,000 to buy as opposed to $10,000 to acquire 100 shares) similar to Futures trading without the same risk exposure.
  3. When you create Option spreads (Shorting a Call against a Long Call), you collect premium from the passage of time! This is akin to collecting rent on an apartment building each month.
  4. Option spreads reduce the cost of your investment by 25% to 35% while simultaneously increasing the odds of a profitable outcome by 100% to 200%!
