return on investment of time and money.

investment comes from hedging risk and the

trading.

A good options trading system takes both of
these requirements into account.
6.
Let us look at the basics of options trading
and at options trading return on investment
under two trading scenarios.
15.
As an example, a trader pays $300 for $102
call options on XYZ Company which
currently sells for $100 a share.
16.
Based on his research he believes that the
price of the stock will go up.
17.
The strike price of the contract is $102 so
the price of the stock needs to go up above
$105 a share for the trader to make money
on the contract.
18.
Let us say that his fundamental stock
analysis and technical market analysis are
correct and the stock goes up to $115 a
share.
19.
He will pay $102 a share if he executes the
options contract and then he will sell the
stock for $115 a share for a $13 a share
profit or $1,300 for 100 shares.
20.
He paid $300 for the premium so his options
trading return on investment is $1,000 on a
$300 investment.
21.
On the other hand he could have purchased
the stock at $100 and sold at $115 a share
when it went up.
22.
But since he only had $300 he could only
have purchased three shares so he would
have made $45 on a $300 investment.
23.
If he had chosen to buy 100 shares of the
stock he would have made $1,500 on a
$10,000 investment.
24.
Here two tables showing the results of the
three scenarios when the stock goes up
from $100 to $115 and also three scenarios
for when the stock goes down from $100 to
$85 in price.

27.
These tables demonstrate our point about
options trading return on investment as well
as hedging risk.
28.
When a stock goes down in price it is better
to have held call options than to have
bought the stock as the risk is limited by the
cost of the options premium.
29.
When the stock goes up in price it is better
to have purchased calls than to have bought
the stock as the options trading return on
investment is 333% while the return on
investment in this case is 333% while the
return on investment from purchasing the
stock is 15%.
30.
Of course this is simply a hypothetical
example but please use it as an educational
example regarding options trading return on
investment.
