Hi guys, I'm a futures/spot trader and I have just set up an 'investment account' to accumulate some long term stocks for the benefit of my future wealth. Basically a buy and hold account. Anyway, in order to get the best research out of the broker I use (an Australian firm) I either have to pay a hefty fee or do one options trade every quarter. I understand the principles of options fine, but I'm not stupid enough to think that I can go straight in and profit from an options play. I've looked at Optionetics but I see a lot of bad stuff written about them. Has anybody got any beginner hints for picking an option trade for somebody who is a bit sidetracked by other decisions to make! Appreciate any help.
