Trading Weekly Options Tips

Trading weekly options have many benefits.  The options have a shorter duration than standard options which expire every 3rd Friday of the month. Shorter dated options will cost less than longer dated options, because there is less time value which generally drives up the price of an option.  You should trade weekly options when you are looking for short term movements in a market.

    Having tired of trading penny co’s with nothing behind them but water, I’m hopping the fence in favor of options trading. The more I learn re. the subject, the more I want to continue learning. A lot of ppl in the same boat as me who want to grow a small account exponentially would do well in learning how to harness the leverage options offer. There are options attached to many of America’s biggest, healthiest corp’s. A nod goes out for the to-the-point ebooks.
