There are several options webinars on futures.io (formerly BMT), I believe they all touch on doing this.
Otherwise you'll need to be more specific if you want more info.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Unfortunately I can't be more specific as I do not have any experience with trading options.
It's only that I've heard about that from one fx trader and was intrigued by the idea - liked it. I would love to be able to control risk without using stops (avoid stop hunting).
That's why I asked, expecting some info especially from fx traders who do use such a technique
It might be a good idea on long timeframes, to reduce a bit the slippage and commission costs of the options.
But no magic, covering your trade by an option can limit your loss, but it will limit your profits too.

Well, I was expecting a bit of magic really - keeping an open position till it turns good (not worrying too much/closing it when in loss). It seems as if I need to stick to old fashioned stops and hope for little or no slippage if there is such a thing.
May even try fx futures one day - they look more transparent (than spot fx)
