The Advantages of ETF Options and Index Options Trading
Index trading and ETF trading offer less volatility, instant diversification and involves taking a macro approach rather than a micro approach. This makes it ideal for working professionals. The impact of earnings reports, company specific bad news like oil spills etc. can have severe impact on stocks. ETFs offer a world of choice for investors today, and there is an ETF for every possible investment interest. Broad market indices and their ETFs or even sector based ETFs offer tremendous liquidity and reduced volatility. Using a broad market index like the SPY ETF, you can hedge an entire portfolio of stocks from catastrophic losses with just 1 trade.
Although this course uses Options, the course is well suited for Stock traders. You can apply the concepts to ETFs because ETFs trade just like a Stock.
