This Low-Cost “Summer Play” Could Pay for Your Vacation

“Only the pros can trade options.”

This is probably the most common delusion about options that’s out there, aside from options being too risky.

But quite the contrary…

Every day, more and more people use options as their trading or investing method. Whether it’s to protect a portfolio of stocks or to take a small, leveraged position to control a larger quantity of stock, options are a great way to profit off any market condition.

Likewise, say you want to get in on a hot new tech stock but don’t want to put a lot of capital into a position. Options trading could be the perfect answer for you.

And as a rules-based options trader, I hardly have any equity positions, so I personally don’t have a bunch of stock to be concerned about in rough markets.

That being said, I realize I’m not necessarily the “typical” market participant, and you may likely be holding stock in your portfolio and retirement account. You may have even held stock for many, many years – through the good times and the bad.

But you do have an alternative to simply holding your stock.

And I’m about to show you a strategy that anyone with “optionable” stock can consider…
