Hey everyone. This is Kirk here again from Option Alpha and welcome back to the daily call. Today, we’re going to answer the question – “What should you start trading first? Stocks, options, commodities or Forex?” Now, I think it’s actually pretty natural for most investors to start their investing journey by trading stocks. Many people get used to the idea of stocks because we hear about them all the time and it’s very easy to understand. You are purchasing shares in the company and you buy and sell the underlying shares. But the reality is that stocks have a high capital threshold to cross and ultimately, are a 50/50 bet unless you’re holding them for a really long time period. If you want to start trading and you want to learn how to trade, we believe that options trading of course, is the ultimate trading vehicle for you. It’s the only one out of the list that I presented before that allows you to trade with a high probability of success and defined risk reward characteristics. In addition, options trading also allows newbie investors to trade using spreads which allow you to get into positions with as little as $70 worth of risk and again, a high probability of success. You can’t find this in stocks, commodities or Forex which are all directional trading vehicles in which you’re making an underlying assumption about where the asset is going in the future. Ultimately, it’s going to be more of a 50/50 bet than if you were to trade options and again, all of the other vehicles that we mentioned, stocks, commodities and Forex require a huge capital outlay and investment that leaves you vulnerable to a lot of systematic risk in your positions. If you are going to start trading and you want to know what to start trading first, we highly suggest you look at options trading first. Yes, it’s not as easy as just going out and buying a single share of stock, but just because it’s not easy doesn’t mean that it’s not extremely effective. And so, in this case, stocks are very easy, but not effective and options are very effective, but not necessarily the easiest thing to learn. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t spend the time to do it. Again, we have tons of free training here on Option Alpha you can check out and get started on that journey. As always, if you have any questions, let us know and until next time, happy trading.
