In this video, you will learn three popular options trading strategies that are suitable for beginners with real trade examples and visualizations.

While there are dozens of options trading strategies available, we’ve selected three strategies that we think are great starter strategies for beginner options traders. Additionally, one of the strategies is a great way for long-term stock investors to use options in their portfolios to reduce risk and potentially enhance the returns of passive investments.

Strategy #1: Selling Put Spreads

Selling put spreads is a great starter strategy because the trade can be implemented with very little capital, has bullish market exposure (which most investors want), and a high probability of profit.

Strategy #3: The Covered Call

Covered calls are more capital intensive than the first two strategies, but are ideal for long-term investors who wish to use options to hedge their passive investments, with the potential to enhance returns during dull market periods.
