  1. I agree with a lot of these comments here. Even after watching this I still feel like it’s an entirely different language lol where’s the video that’s for whatever comes before beginner

  2. way too fast. how can you buy below strike priceand break even? don't understand and not explained. I'll just stick to buying stock. just fancy way to lose your money

  3. Correct me if I'm wrong please. Basically you are saying that buying a call option would actually limit my losses no matter how much the stock price goes down. However, it has the potential to give me gains with no limits on how much those gains would be?

  4. Basically your buying a contract with calls and put options putting a small deposit down. Your out 100% money after expired date if stock stays the same or slight move but if it swings and you called it than you can x100 your initial cost buy in. Very interesting. I myself have been only buying shares for a few years afraid of options but i am bearish on a lot of stocks good way to try put options. Thx

  5. This is a really helpful video! I learned a lot.

    I think it would be helpful if you differentiate between "loss" and "opportunity loss", however. Your examples were a little confusing, because in your examples it seems that you're theoretically selling your option contracts at a profit, but you're including a loss if the value goes up/down based on the option type.

    Just my two cents 🙂

  6. I'm confused about the call option profit and loss. How is the loss $500 when we only bought it for $5? Or do we have to pay $5×100 upfront when buying the call option? I'm a total noob can anyone explain

  7. nice. examples made it easy to understand. Didn't really understood why should someone sell a CALL/PUT option since upside is capped where as downside is limited. Of course unless chances of that happening is very less and one feels it's easy money to collect.

  8. In regards to selling call options, as long as you own the 100 shares of whatever stock there's no risk correct? The only risk would be you losing out on potential gains if the price goes way past the strike price?

  9. That was super helpful, thanks. I have 1major problem still: Contract size and the amount of money I need. Do you need to have the 100 shares in your portfolio (or the cash to buy them)? Because then I dont understand how to use options without millions in the bank. Long call apple would cost over 30k just stockprice. and that's just for 1 option… where's my mistake?

  10. Okay I actually understand it now. I only finally started to get it at the very end of the video talking about strike puts. But all I learned from this was there is no way I’m doing options trading until I understand the stock market better and can somewhat predict the rise and falls of stock before jumping into this high risk game that is options trading.

  11. Man, you need motion graphics. This material, even at the 101 level, is too dense to follow without arrows or underlining or highlighting in some way. Nice attempt though.

  12. Moral of this video…if you think you are a fortune teller and can predict the future of a stock price in the short term then options might be for you. If you do not want to gamble with your hard earned money learn how to valuate a company off of the income statement, balance sheet and cash flow summary. Long live the investor and good luck to the trader. Of course if everyone knew what they were doing it would be hard to ever find an undervalued stock.

  13. I am confused. It's like you read scripts! You mentioned that we buy/sell CALL and you also said Buy/Sell Put. Regardless of CALL/PUT buyers would expect to be bulliest and the seller would expect to be bearish. What's the difference between put/call?
