If you follow me on twitter odds are you’ve seen my posts about the Lockdown Investment course that recently launch. The course is titled “Introduction to Options Trading: Part 1 – Fundamentals.” The reason I have been promoting this course is because I truly believe in it. When Michael announced his course I immediately started messaging him asking if I could help him turn this into something special. The end result definitely lived up to the hype.
Why This Course?
If you are like myself, when you get started with options the sheer amount of information can be overwhelming. Whether you are researching strategies, stock picks or the Greeks, it can all be very confusing. Now I’ve written posts on things like covered calls and cash-secured puts. But there is more to it than that.
Michael has over 6 years of experience in the field and provides excellent entry level information for those who are looking to get started. The guide takes the time to explain all the terms you need to understand in order to learn more option trading. There will be future guides out there to explain different strategies and how to make money but this goes over the basic information.
What is Covered?
When you purchase this course there is a table of contents included that gives you timestamps during the webinar of what is included. The order is as follows: introduction, preface, how we define an option, options vs stocks, brief summary, strike price, expiration date, calls, puts, scenarios at expiration, bid/ask spread, option premium, option greeks, volume and interest and brokers. That covers just about all the information you will need to get started.
The webinar is about two hours in length but the real advantage comes from being able to review each section individually as you learn and grow. I still find myself going back and reviewing basic information from time to time. I compare it to sharpening your ax before you cut wood. It keeps your mind sharp and your focus strong. The basics never change no matter what your strategy is.
What I’m Adding
For anyone who purchases the course, my twitter DMs are open. All you have to do is mention that you learned about this course through my blog here and I will answer any options question that you have. Whether it is looking at plays on particular stocks and my opinion, or if you need further clarification around certain topics.
Also be sure to drop a follow while you are there because there might be another course dropping sooner rather than later from yours truly. Again you can find Lockdown Investment course at the link mentioned. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or message me on twitter.
