LAS VEGAS, Dec. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- A new training course has just been released that teaches individual investors how to diversify their portfolios by selling stock options. This is commonly referred to as Selling Time since the trading style is a delta neutral one in which the trader is looking to collect Theta, which is time decay.
OptionGenius.com, an option trading advisory service, just introduced this free course and has made it available through their website. Anyone can register. All they need is their name and email address and the course will be emailed to them directly.
"The majority of individual investors have never traded options before. This course is a great way to learn about delta neutral trading. The 9-lesson course covers many different aspects of the trading styles we use," says Allen Sama, Head Trader at OptionGenius.com
In addition to teaching about option selling, the course also goes through examples of real trades that were done by the service in the past. Entering the trade, adjusting the trade, and exiting the trade are all discussed in detail.
There are many different trading strategies that can be used when using a delta neutral trading style. Some of the more colorful named are: the iron condor, the calendar spread, the broken wing butterfly, the credit spread, the covered call, the straddle, the strangle, and the credit spread.
"Delta neutral trading is a style that makes money whether the market moves up, down, or sideways. Basically you are selling stock options and waiting for them to lose value on a daily basis all the while being hedged against a move in the stock market," says Sama.
Option trading can be risky, but the delta neutral style makes sure that the trader is hedged against a move in the markets. It is a conservative way to trade options and one that is used by many professional traders and hedge funds. This course shows the individual trader how to emulate the professionals.
