Although I have published numerous articles, some on Inside Futures, but also as a Forbes Contributor, today’s article is merely a review of some essential characteristics of Options Trading. It is an Options Trading Checklist, which I believe includes concepts that every Options Trader should be familiar with. If you are not completely familiar with these concepts, including 1) Goals, 2) Risk/Reward Ratio, 3) Liquidity, 4) Implied vs. Historical Volatility, 5) Skew, 6) Gamma, 7) Vega and are trading a lot of options contracts, then Options Strategy Network can be helpful to you. Click the link and take a few minutes to see where you stand with your Options Trading Knowledge. If you are fully comfortable with these ideas, how does that knowledge enable you create Options Trading Strategies with good value?
