If you’ve tried the new Zecco Trading Center or the new Zecco Mobile for Android or iPhone, you know we are committed to giving our customers the trading and research tools they need to succeed. Yet, skills and knowledge are just as important as the right tools.
Let me use a personal example.
I’m an avid skier. I especially love to ski out of bounds, which can be risky. To do it safely I’ve taken a lot of classes, including advanced training in avalanche rescue. I was lucky enough to recently ski in the French Alps, on some of the most challenging slopes in the world. I made sure I had an experienced guide and carried the right safety equipment – including a rescue beacon and a shovel.
That’s why we’ve partnered with The Options Insider to bring you Options Boot Camp – a series of full-length audio programs designed to educate options traders of all skill levels. Throughout the series, Options Boot Camp will cover many facets of options trading, from the most basic concepts to complex options strategies.
Mark Longo, the founder of The Options Insider and a former member of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), will host the shows. Like any good coach, Mark will answer your questions about options and help you do the work you need to become a better options trader. And don’t worry, he won’t make you do any push-ups.
I made my first options trade back in 1989. I learned options investing by trial and error, and errors can be expensive. I wish I had someone like Mark to help me figure out how options work. After listening to the Options Boot Camp shows, I believe you’ll feel more confident about making options trades that align with your investing objectives.
Options Boot Camp complements our online education on stock and options trading. The first episode, covering options basics, is now available in streaming format on the Zecco and The Options Insider websites, as well as in podcast format on iTunes.
If you have any options questions, we’d love to address them on the next episodes of Options Boot Camp. We encourage listeners to submit their questions here or through Zecco’s Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/zecco.
Enjoy the show, and good luck with putting your new options insights to work!
