★ SUMMARY ★
In this video we are going to be focusing on Option LEAPS, long term investment strategies to make more with less money.
We are going to talk about how to use options for longer term investments. However, you can still use some of the strategies and concepts I’ll share with you in a shorter time frame.
What are LEAPS?
LEAPS are Long Term Equity Anticipation Security, but basically, it’s just a long-term option. Long term means a different thing for everybody, it can be 6 months, a year, two years, five years, etc. However, in my opinion, this means holding options for more than 60 days, anything beyond that are longer term holds.
Disadvantages of trading option LEAPS
– They are higher total cost
– Change in price makes you less money
– Bid-ask spread can be a problem
– Volatility can shift and create issues with the position
Advantages of trading option LEAPS
– Lower cost for the time you hold
– Less time decay
– Longer life for the strategy to work
– You can still make money from time decay
You can use option LEAPS in all sorts of ways. You can use them to make some money from time decay, and you can reduce your risk by using less of your capital to make more money.
In this video I’m going to show you on screen some strategies with option LEAPS and how to set them up, so that you can see how to make money with them.
