When You Are Not Comfortable Trading Options

  by Jesse Anderson

It would be great if we were all able to manage our own portfolio.  Unfortunately, for various reasons, it just isn’t that simple.   You may not have the time, are uncomfortable trading on your own, or concerned over using more advanced investment techniques like options.

The horror stories about using options are popular.  I call these people traders, not investors.  This is the group of people who are enticed by the amount of leverage that options offer.  This is the same group that will speculate or gamble with options trying to participate in a big move in a stock for a fraction of the cost of the shares. There is significant risk when options are used this way.  All options have a limited life expectancy.  As they approach expiration, the time value in the option erodes.  If the traders’ bet was incorrect, they are at risk of losing the entire amount invested.  We would never recommend investing in options without a proper education and understanding of exactly how they work.

With the Snider Investment Method, we use options to create a stream of portfolio income and reduce risk. Through the Snider Investment Method workshop and online course, we help investors learn to use options effectively combined with stocks and cash management techniques in a very specific way.

However, what do you do if you are simply not comfortable investing on your own?
