Here are some introductory options trading videos to help wrap your head around the basics. .
I think this is the best order to do these in:
Go through all 4 parts of the playlists on this page:
Cash Secured Puts – Go through all the vids in his series on these (I believe there are 8) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aN3i4ywitoo
Covered Call Writing – Go through all the vids in his series on these – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OnqmnL8p1I
Back to Skyview Trading:
I think that is about 40 videos in total. They are all short. You could make it through them all in an evening if you were ambitions. Some are only a couple of minutes.
You are going to get a good bit of overlap with these, but that is perfect. You know you are learning something when it becomes review 🙂 We bust out the notebook and take notes when it makes sense to do so. We have re-watched several of the videos if things are not clicking. I’ve tried to put them in an order of increasing complexity as best I can.
After watching these, there is another free FastTrack course by a guy who does a trade alert service, coaching and has a forum. OptionAlpha.com His learning materials are diverse, wide reaching and beyond the basics. Most of his learning materials are free. His stuff is not in the best order for learning, so wait till after you have watched the above videos before digging into his site, podcast, etc. Something to keep in mind with options – this type of trading can be seen as a pure ‘trading’ type methodology or a hedge with investment…or simply a way to make your investments in the market more profitable. You will gather from Alan Ellman vids that he is a mix, and the rest of the folks are more traders.
