Buying Call Options for Rising Markets

event access_time


In this webinar we look at how call options can be used in a rising market. We’ll compare and contrast buying a call option versus shares of stock. Then, we’ll walk through various scenarios where the stock’s price increases, decreases, or stays the same during the life of the call.  As we go, you’ll see how changes in price, time and volatility affect the call option and the stock.
