Course Overview:

Trading options requires a different thought process than trading stocks. Traders should begin with a forecast that includes a specific price target for the underlying stock and a specific forecast for the time period.

Trading options is not easy. It takes time to learn the mechanics and it involves acting on intuition and closing positions at either a profit or a loss when market conditions dictate.
