Options Trading: More Information

By Patricia Uceda, Spring 2015 Graduate Research Assistant

This past week you’ve learned about options, the common terminology used in options trading, the risks associated with options, and the steps you should take in order to open an options trading account with your broker-dealer. For our final post in this options series, we wanted to provide you with additional resources before you consider investing in options.  In addition to the SEC’s Investor Bulletins An Introduction to Options and Opening an Options Account, you may want to consider a publication from the Options Clearing Corporation called “Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options,” which can be downloaded for free here and the NASDAQ Options Trading Guide located at here.
