Hello

I remember attanding one of Manesh's webinars and the same question was put across to him in that webinar. This is what he had said at that time " Why trade stocks that ties up a lot of capital when you can do the same with less capital in options. By doing options, the risks of a heavy capital is eliminated."

He also gave an example that "if one wanted to buy 100 shares of a company, lets say @ $20/- per share X 100 shares the cost would be $2,000/-. With 50% margin requirement, one would need $1,000/- at least. On the other hand, with options, one could buy a $20/- strike for only $210/- which could control 100 shares. This is approximately 20% of what would be required to trade as a margin money."

I personally do not trade stocks / options, so I will not be able to throw more light on this subject though.


Thanks

SteveM
