  • Most brokers assign different levels of options trading approval based on the riskiness involved and complexity involved. The four strategies discussed here would all fall under the most basic levels, level 1 and Level 2. Customers of brokerages will typically have to be approved for options trading up to a certain level and maintain a margin account.Level 1: covered calls and protective puts, when an investor already owns the underlying assetLevel 2: long calls and puts, which would also include straddles and stranglesLevel 3: options spreads, involving buying one or more options and at the same time selling one or more different options of the same underlyingLevel 4: selling (writing) naked options, which here means unhedged, posing the possibility for unlimited losses"}},"@type": "Question","name": "How Can I Start Trading Options?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Most online brokers today offer options trading. You will have to typically apply for options trading and be approved. You will also need a margin account. When approved, you can enter orders to trade options much like you would for stocks but by using an option chain to identify which underlying, expiration date, and strike price, and whether it is a call or a put. Then, you can place limit orders or market orders for that option.","@type": "Question","name": "When Do Options Trade During the Day?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Equity options (options on stocks) trade during normal stock market hours. This is typically 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST.","@type": "Question","name": "Where Do Options Trade?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Listed options trade on specialized exchanges such as the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), the Boston Options Exchange (BOX), or the International Securities Exchange (ISE), among others. These exchanges are largely electronic nowadays, and orders you send through your broker will be routed to one of these exchanges for best execution.","@type": "Question","name": "Can You Trade Options for Free?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Though many brokers now offer commission-free trading in stocks and ETFs, options trading still involves fees or commissions. There will typically be a fee-per-trade (e.g., $4.95) plus a commission per contract (e.g., $0.50 per contract). Therefore, if you buy 10 options under this pricing structure, the cost to you would be $4.95 + (10 x $0.50) = $9.95."]}]}] Investing Stocks
