Options, understandings and tactics

By megfk, April 25, 2014

Alan – We open here a forum for discussing options. It might be helpful to open the discussion with a copy of the paragraphs that I wrote 4/24 about options. I don’t know how to cut-and-paste that material.

Before I opened this discussion forum, I noticed a question about choosing a stock that might perform well as an option. I’ve already briefly addressed the subject…and would appreciate knowing about the thinking of others.

I have years of experience, but could not pass myself off as an ”expert.” I prefer that this discussion forum be a gathering of investors with an interest in options…with all of those with greater experience contributing things that they have learned. Our goal is to benefit one another.

Hi
I’ve tried over two dozen advisory services and NONE have delivered a consistently profitable performance.( If one had, I would have stayed with it)
I’ve done best when doing my own DD, using what I’ve learned from the various services about position sizing, stops, etc.
It’s like Travis said, “ you can make a little money if you have a lot of money”. I think trading will be an expensive hobby, not a retirement income!
