Potential Recession should make you want to Learn How to Use Options

According to Ambrose Evans Pritchard of the Telegraph the probability of recession in 2017 is increasing.  There is no better time to learn how to use an option.  An option provides many features that are superior to straight stock or fund investing.  The most obvious is leveraging your Dollars… but the reduction of risk goes hand in hand with that leverage.  If you had $100 to invest and you could get  roughly the same results with only $20…wouldn’t you? How do you invest the other $80?  If you are heading into a recession according to Evans-Pritchard, the answer is: maybe you don’t.  By reducing your risk, you can still participate to the upside but dramatically reduce risk of your overall portfolio.

Given the potential warnings we encourage everyone to get educated and protect what you have!
