Are Options safe?
Option are the safer way of trading. Please read the case example below:
John wants to buy 100 shares of XYZ at $50.00 a share and he calls his broker and places an order to buy the stock at $50.00 .
The order is filled and John parts with $5,000.
Two days later some bad news comes out regarding XYZ and the stock falls sharply.
John calls his broker to find out what price the stock is now trading at and unfortunately the stock is now at $41.00 a share John sells quickly and takes a loss of $9,000 plus commissions.
If John had bought 10 CALL option contracts (controlling the same number of shares) 1,000 and paid $150.00 a contract his total downside risk would be $1500 no matter how far the stock fell.
John could have controlled the same amount of stock for a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the risk.
How many alerts are issued each week?

These alerts are not distributed evenly throughout the week.
