Some of you have expressed interest in learning about Option trading and advanced option strategies.
Professor Steven Gail is teaching a course which I highly recommend:
Whether your personal investment style is conservative or aggressive, long-term or short-term, this in-depth course educates individuals on the utilization of options and demonstrates how options can add value to your current investment strategies. Intended for investors who want to utilize options as part of their overall investment mix, or for those who already employ options and want to expand their usage, this course explores the basics of options and some of the common misconceptions regarding them. Participants learn about the unique attributes of options and why investors have to think differently when investing in these instruments, whether as a stand-alone investment or in conjunction with existing stock positions. The course includes stock and index option strategies, as well as an understanding of the nomenclature of the terms used in option trading. Additional topics include the use of spreads, straddles, combinations, butterflies, condors, and other intermediate forms of option strategies.
