Trading For Newbies

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.
We can place bullish and bearish trades using either call or put options.

On this episode of Trading For Newbies, Ryan and Beef explain the differences between placing bullish and bearish trades using either call or put options.

If we're bullish we can choose to buy a call or sell a put and if we're bearish we can choose to buy a put or sell a call. It's important that we understand the characteristics associated with buying or selling before we make a decision about which option type to use.
