Purchasing a popular or top trading stock outright can be a costly and risky investment. Options can be bought at a fraction of the cost of the actual stock. This way, investors require a much lower financial commitment to acquire a position, which can result in significant cost savings and higher-percentage returns.
Options have proven to be liquid and efficient. This allows more markets to be traded at any given time, creating more investment opportunities. More cost-efficient than purchasing a stock outright, investors can also capitalise on fast-changing price movements, whether they are up or down, to take advantage of market situations as they evolve.
A multi-faceted and lucrative asset vehicle that can make a difference to any portfolio, options can be traded to build positions and hedge against risks. This can help investors manage short to long term goals, regulate risks, and calibrate investment strategies to plan for retirement or grow investments.
