I don't know anything about options trading and stumbled on this old article. http://www.ehow.com/how_4477174_double-money-through-options-trading.html It sounds like bs, probably is, also noticed it was written pre-recession. Surely it is too good to be true or everyone would be doing it. Step 8 says: "Experience has shown me that if I try to earn just 10% per month, I have a 98% chance of doing so. But, if I try to earn 20% per month, my chance of earning that amount is only about 80%." That just sounds ridiculous. :/ I wanted to ask the experts here how much of a return per year someone can actually expect through options trading, if one is conservative and doesn't want to lose all of their money. Thanks for reading my thread.
