The Options Intermediate courses is a key milestone to master to advance to more complex strategies.

ETF and Index Trading

SPX, NDX and RUT are Indexes, and SPX is a popular index Option for trading. Index trading and ETF trading offer less volatility, instant diversification and involves taking a macro approach rather than a micro approach. This makes SPX Options trading ideal for working professionals. The impact of earnings reports, company specific bad news like oil spills etc. can have severe impact on stocks. ETFs offer a world of choice for investors today, and there is an ETF for every possible investment interest. Broad market indices like SPX Options and their ETFs or even sector based ETFs offer tremendous liquidity and reduced volatility. Using a broad market index like the SPY ETF or SPX Index options, you can hedge an entire portfolio of stocks from catastrophic losses with just 1 trade.

Although this course uses Options, the course is well suited for Stock and SPX option traders. You can apply the concepts to ETFs because ETFs trade just like a Stock.
