I know that " day trading - stocks for a living " is a joke now (although , yes , I am sure that 1 in 50 Daytraders are able to make a living out of it) , but what about options trading ? < Br >
I have a very solid financial markets , but have never explored the options. ¿ I can, with no more than $ 20,000 really make much money selling and buying options?

The stock market only I could earn 11% on average. What kind of benefits could be expected year-end trading options ?

The gains in the stock market , including dividends , averaging 7.5 per cent in the long term. Many options traders make more than 20 percent on capital, but are armed with advanced tools such as the Black -Scholes model . Since you have experience in the markets , you can make some good profits trading options . It would not hurt to familiarize yourself with some of the factors that influence the price of the options : delta , gamma , vega , theta , etc.

You want the truth ? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus It's hard as hell . Do you know why most traders use other peoples money or money ? Because if they risked their own money they would be homeless in a year. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Realize this. Trading is a zero sum ​​game . If I make 1000 in a trade means that some other poor fool just lost 1000. I changed the currency to an energy company for a while. I was in a room with physical traders and financial operators ( those who make choices with no intention of taking over anything) . And even the best trader would have time off when he lost big. It was expected that a trader sometimes lose his *** . Good traders back on the horse again and trade some gun shy and would never be worth a penny more . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So yes you could take 20,000 to make 100,000 in less than a week , if you're lucky .... but the odds are that you lose everything in less than two months . You need a lot more money behind you to have some sort of opportunity to trade to pay . In currency trading that had a year that was up to 2 million in less than a month , the flip side is I lost 1 million over a weekend . Do yourself a favor . Put half the money in a mutual fund and the other on a CD . Hell put everything on a CD and you will have more money in a year than you would if it was negotiated.

Experienced option traders can make 3% per month consistently. Some proclaimed that can make 6 % . As for me , I think that the most reasonable so you get the option trade is 1% per month . Now, that may not sound much compared with 11% in the stock market . But with the stock market , your profit would most likely be in the paper , not cash . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus After understanding what% we can expect , we have to multiply our capital to see if we can live off it . Since you have 20k , 3 % monthly amount to $ 600 , just enough to pay for the purchase . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So 100k is the minimum I recommend if you want to make a living as a trader .
