I have been exchanging with two individuals who are learning options trading on another options thread. I thought to suggest this thread so that those who are new to options trading can learn it. I think a person who is new to options can start by: Opening a paper demo account, find an option calculator, and post the trades here for comments and suggestions, etc. Experienced members can then answer questions, and also give critique and suggestions. If you are new to options identify yourself, ask you questions, post your trades for discussion.
