The Use And The Abuse Of The Weekly Options


Options trading is becoming more and more popular every year. The options become more liquid and more traders use them for hedging, speculation, income etc. Weekly options, first introduced by CBOE in October 2005, are one-week options as opposed to traditional options that have a life of months or years before expiration.

  • What can you do with an option?

    This article covers some basic stuff related to options owners. What are your choices when you own an option? You have three choices: sell it, exercise it or allow it to expire worthless.

  • 10 Reasons Why Trading Is Difficult

    Trading is a difficult endeavor. It takes experience and a sound process to help you understand when to get into a trade. And when to get out of a trade. But perhaps even more important is the mental discipline it takes to follow your experience (gut) and process. Here are some great insights from Steve Burns.

  • Big Drawdowns Are Part Of The Game

    People desperately want to make money in the stock market with little or no risk. Unfortunately this is just not possible. If you want big returns, you need to be prepared for big drawdowns along the way. For example, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway lost over 50% from June 1998 to March 2000.

  • Trade Size: Taming The 800-Pound Gorilla

    I often refer to selecting a proper position size as the easiest and most important risk-management technique for the individual trader. It is always tempting to trade bigger size, especially when confident. Big size can produce big profits. Traders believe that earning bigger profits is the path to wealth.

  • Probability vs. Certainty Trap

    We all would like all our trades to be winners, but we know this is not possible. We know some of the trades will be losers. Many traders think that if a trade has lost money, it was a bad trade. They try to identify what errors they made that lead to losses. Why? "Because I lost money! So surely I have made a mistake somewhere?”

  • Should You Care About The Sharpe Ratio?

    The Sharpe Ratio is a measure for calculating risk-adjusted return, and this ratio has become the industry standard for such calculations. It was developed by Nobel laureate William F. Sharpe. The Sharpe Ratio is the annualized return of an investment earned in excess of the risk free rate divided by the investment's annualized volatility.

  • 10 Options Trading Myths Debunked

    There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about options trading. Many traders refrain from trading options because they consider it too risky. The only dangerous part of options trading is the risk-insensitive trader who buys and sells options with little or no understanding of just what can go wrong.

  • Adaptability And Discipline

    Whenever we talk about discipline, everyone seems to understand that we are referring to trade decisions. We know that good discipline is required to pull the trigger and exit a trade with a loss. It really should not be difficult. After all, we know our position has not been working and is not likely to get better any time soon.
