  1. Anyone know and is there any breakdown. ie do the majority of individuals buy or do they sell
    same with institutions.

    It seems that no one I have met does anything with options, they just trade or buy stocks.
  2. You can help them understand the advantages of using options to hedge those stock positions.

    I believe the majority of individuals make the mistake of buying options
