Simon Peters says:

Great vid! So happy I stumbled into this! Production was well done as well!

I too appreciate the simplistic and concise manner of explanation. Is it important to learn and understand the stock market first as a basic fundamental platform, and then learn options trading secondarily? Options seem to be an exponent of just trading stocks. Thanks !

Seth Carpenter says:

Word of the day, "articulate".

You didn't say how these contracts originate. If you buy a call and want to take delivery of the 100 shares. Where do they come from and how is that trade executed.? I am looking at a 10 dollar a trade fee. I pay 10 for the call. Do I pay another 10 to take delivery.? Do shares even exist or is this purely a side bet. My account is with a brokerage tied to a large bank.

Brandon Jimerson says:

Thanks you so much this for video. I now get a better grasp on something that i missed. I would like to ask if it possible if you can create a segment in regarding Theta and Delta.

I feel like the style is a little rushed, there are no pauses for the watcher to digest the content, before one guy is finished with his sentence the other is interjecting and presenting new information. As a newbie, I would appreciate a slower pace.


very good video, this is very useful for traders, good job !!!

Mike Taylor says:

Thank you for the video! I love going through refreshers…the more I read, the less I know.

This medium makes learning much easier for some of us in the younger generation.
