What is an Option?

I posted my first YouTube video this morning. You can view it below or directly on my new YouTube channel.

It’s not really catered to regular My Trader’s Journal readers since you all know these basic points, but I figured I should start with a high-level overview of options trading and single contract puts and calls. I didn’t cover spreads/combinations or Greeks or anything beyond what could fit in a very broad summary¬†for a beginner.

My new account will be funded as of next Thursday,¬†and I’ll try to get to trading and posting trades again soon after the check clears. In the meantime, I’d appreciate any “likes” you can give my video to get me started on the right foot. The same goes for subscriptions to my channel, all views, likes, and subscribers will help me grow the channel and ideally get some good dialogue going again in the comments section here and there.

Thanks for your continued support and viewership.
