What are Stock Options?

EDIT: At the time this blog entry was posted I had a Youtube video here. That has been removed but I want the rest of my content to be remain. Nothing hidden no past mistakes ignored. All out in the open.

Before anyone starts jumping in with "You forgot about X"... this is a VERY BASIC overview of stock options. I wanted to just go over them conceptually to start things off with.

Now this is not to say I will be jumping into them with the trading account. A big part of why I want to go over them is that stock options are very common and can be very appealing. The Theoretical Family has had 1.5 years to educate themselves and read up on things about the markets. Options should be an option... pun intended.

Disclaimer: The investments and trades in my videos and blog entries are not recommendations for others. I am not a financial planner, financial advisor, accountant, or tax adviser. The financial actions I talk about are for my own portfolio and money and only suited for my own risk tolerance, strategy, and ideas. Copying another person's financial moves can lead to large losses. Each person needs to do their due diligence in researching and planning their own actions in the financial markets.
