In this episode The MarketBeat Podcast, Kate talks about options with CC Latator, co-founder of the options trading platform Options AI. CC explains what’s wrong with options trading when it comes to helping individual investors, who tend to trade differently from the big institutions.
Kate and CC discuss:
Why CC and its co-founders saw the need for a new options trading platform for retail traders
How retail options trading can be riskier than the way institutions trade options
Why do investors need a plan to prepare for the probable?
Using options to position against an event taking place?
How even investors with no interest in speculative option positions could use options to add income?
If you own a stock long-term, you can use put spreads to avoid bad trading decisions at lows
On the plus side, instead of making a decision to sell because a stock has extended, you can sell calls and call spreads against the holdings to help you earn income as positioning against an event that occurs
One of the best skills you can have as a professional trader or investor is your own cognitive biases: options give you a way to have a plan to monetize
Hedging strategies allow you to question how to sleep at night in a volatile market
How should people approach the current market?
Why CC believes it’s best to play singles and doubles now, rather than an options home run now.
