You've done your research on a stock or ETF, and you may be ready to commit - except for one thing: The capital you need to do it. We all know investing can take a sizable outlay, but what if we told you it might be possible to follow your instincts with a lower capital requirement? It just may be, thanks to the options market. On July 17, The Options Industry Council will host a free webinar called " How Options Can be Used to Lower At-Risk Capital," and we want you to join us. Here's some of what we'll go over:

  • Buying calls and puts
  • Options and leverage
  • Weekly options and monthly options
  • Basics of LEAPS
  • Choosing strikes and expirations

Plus, we'll provide plenty of examples to help you see how options can be a tool for capital efficiency - but also how they can bite if you're not prepared. Sign up today. Registration also gives you access to an on-demand event replay that you can watch at any time.

Selling calls on a stock or ETF already owned is a common strategy, known as the covered call. But there's a big challenge to it: You first have to have 100 shares of that stock or ETF and getting those shares may be pricey. So, what if an investing strategy was out there that could help you do something similar, but at a lower cost? You might want to consider the poor man's covered call. The strategy involves buying an in-the-money LEAPS call with a long time to expiration, and then selling an out-of-the-money nearer-term call on the same security. Want to learn more? If so, join The Options Industry Council on Aug. 14 for a free webinar. We'll go over:

  • Setting up the poor man's covered call
  • LEAPS as a stock substitution
  • The traditional covered call
  • A comparison of covered call strategies

We'll also be sharing plenty of examples, so you can see what types of profits and losses this particular options strategy can produce. Be sure to join us - register now! Registration also gives you access to an on-demand event replay that you can watch at any time.

Here's some of what you'll learn about:

  • Understanding implied volatility
  • Strategies like the long straddle and strangle
  • Risk/reward profiles

  • How news can impact positions

We'll also have examples with P&L graphs so you can see what could happen when volatility is going up. Register today - it's completely free. Registration also gives you access to an on-demand event replay that you can watch at any time.
