To make money trading options one needs to pick the best potential trades and then employ a strategy that works. That working strategy should hedge your risk. That is, it should provide a decent potential for profit, and not expose you to excessive risk. The great part about trading options is that options trading can be profitable when stocks are going up, going down or trading sideways. When buying either call or put options the buyer is under no obligation to execute the trade unless doing so will be profitable. Thus the risk of the trade is limited to the premium paid for the option contract. A more common approach with professional options traders is to combine buying and selling options and mix buying calls and puts. Those who learn these techniques from Maverick Options routinely hedge their risks and potentially profit in all markets.
First of all traders who do not learn the basics, routinely hedge their risk, and work with a dedicated trading squadron may routinely lose money. Those who take the time and expend the effort to learn the necessary skills and develop the required insights are likely to routinely profit. As a rule selling options tends to be profitable more often than not while buying options is, on the average, not profitable. The problem with selling options without hedging risk is that one can potentially lose all of one’s trading capital in one bad trade. The key to profit in options trading is to learn from a pro such as when one signs up with Maverick Options.

You will learn timing and how to hedge risk with every single trade.
Stock investors can make money in a long bull market and then lose everything in a market crash. An options trader needs only to pivot and change strategies to keep making money whenever trends reverse or even when the market is simply trading from day to today at the same price.
