Leverage and Limited Risks In Options Trading

Though options trading is risky for some people, it still has some clear benefits. Traders have experienced flexibility in options trading. Besides options trading gives better protection compared to stocks trading.

Options trading is very appealing to traders with small funds because of leverage. The reason is that since it is only the “option” and not the stock is traded, you could profit with very little investment. And with only a small amount, you can control the full value of the stock because you hold a contract that performs the same way the stock does – but only for a fraction of the stock price.

Another advantage of option trading is the limitations of risks which can be seen from two perspectives. First, is from the duration or the period of the option and second, is from paying a minimum amount for the full value of the asset. During the period of the options, the holder can either exercise the option or not. Any unnecessary movement in the market may be prevented, thus giving more protection to the holder. On the other hand, if the option is not profitable, the holder will only endure the losses for a short and definite period of time.

Finally with option trading, the trader has the liberty to buy or not to buy an option. This is advantageous since the trader is not obligated to pursue with buying an asset when he has lost interest on it. About the most you can lose is the amount you invested for buying the option and this is much less than the price of the actual stock.
