    Episode #11 - Covering A Put With A Put

    Episode #11 - Covering A Put With A Put

    In a previous episode we discussed the methodology behind covering a call with a call, and in this episode we're going to talk about the reverse of that, covering a put with a put.  Covered puts work essentially the same way as covered calls, except that the underlying equity position is a short instead of a long stock position, and the option sold is a put rather than a call. A covered put investor typically has a neutral to slightly bearish sentiment.

    Episode #10 - Covering a Call With a Call

    When you buy a call, you pay the option premium in exchange for the right to buy shares at a fixed price (strike price) on or before a certain date (expiration date). Investors most often buy calls when they are bullish on a stock or other security because it offers leverage.  In this video we go further into detail on what covering a call with a call looks like.

    Episode #9 - What is a Put Option?

    Episode #9 - What is a Put Option?

    We talked about call options, now it's time to cover the second type of options contract, called a put option.  A put option is a contract that gives its holder the right to sell a number of equity shares at the strike price, before the option's expiry. If an investor owns shares of a stock and owns a put option, the option is exercised when the stock price falls below the strike price.  In this episode we go over the details of a put option, and how we trade them here at Trading Trainer.
