"In reality, selling options carries no more, and often much less risk than trading the actual underlying product. "
From the cut and paste article. This statement is absolutely false, dead wrong, and dangerous.
There are ways to reduce risk in selling options, but as a blanket statement this would show that either the writer does not understand his subject, or he is trying to mislead his customers.
Matthew C. Shelley
As always: Trading in futures and options is very high risk investing. You can lose all or more of the money you invest. Only risk capital should be used.
