Mark and Brian are back to answer listener questions. In particular:
- Question from Ariell - Why should I ever buy puts? I can use a stop order in the stock for free and then put that extra capital to work in my trading account. By my math using stops instead of puts can boost your account 5-10% per year. That’s a lot of cheese.
- Question from The Financial Grynch - Do you REALLY reckon long options is profitable?
- Question from Lonesome - Could you explain Theta and how it helps/hurts options traders? Should anyone ever buy OTM options?
- Question from Tom Matt - What happened to minis? Are they ever coming back?
Do you have a question that you want answered on a future episode? Send them to Brian at email@example.com, or to the Options Insider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
