Hi everyone Its been a while since I posted on my other journal (Youngtrader's Commodity Journal) but with my summer job working nights and barely catching enough sleep to keep me functioning during the day to trade I just don't have the time to keep it up to date. However I will be starting this journal because I will be done with my job at the end of July. I have also found an interest in options, particularly soft commodity and livestock options. The thing about options is that I love the fact that you can quantify your risk to such precision. You can spread off risk where an outright futures trader could not. Plus if any of you know me very well, you know that I get extremely complacent in everything I do and am always looking for the bigger better deal if you know what I mean. Options provide that BBD and its a challenge that I love to take on. There is so much for me to learn and so many different ways to trade these products that its a whole new world for me and I know I can be as successful in options as I was in futures (maybe even better).
