Re: Writing Options with Limited Risk - False

"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.

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.
