Options Crash Course: Ep #16 - Putting It All Together: Trade Entry & Exit

Options Crash Course

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

In this next to last episode of Tastytrade’s Options Crash Course, we look to put everything that we’ve learned to use and build a process for finding a trade. Starting with portfolio theta, and moving all the way to stock selection, we lay out a step-by-step process for using all of the tools we’ve learned thus far to execute a strategy. Then, we talk about trade exit, and in doing so, we find that the rules to follow here are pretty simple.
