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 final segment of the Stocks or Options series before the series wrap-up, we lay out how your skills and abilities might improve with trading stock versus trading options. With pure stock, your knowledge base can grow, but only in regards to a few different concepts, such as asset diversification or dollar-cost averaging.

With options, however, you will naturally have the opportunity to learn how to improve cost basis, hedge, respond to market conditions, trade market variables, and diversify by strategy and time, in addition to assets. In other words, your skill set has the potential to expand more rapidly within the world of options.
