Expand your Repertoire
Okay, so you're pretty good at trading stocks. Maybe you're even making money in the real
stock market. But perhaps you wanted to dabble with options, or try a few new techniques to
broaden your repertoire?
Tipping Monkey offers one of the most robust and versatile free trading simulators that allows
you to try out different options techniques and stock-option combinations. Learn the subtle
differences between longing a stock versus buying a call option, or buying a put versus shorting
the stock. You really shouldn't have to pay for these lessons with real cash.
You can even create several different positions simultaneously to compare the
performance and payoff characteristics between multiple strategies. A textbook might tell you that
writing a covered call is synthetically the same as writing a naked put, but in practice there are
subtle differences. Set up a Bull Credit Spread and a Bull Debit Spread simultaneously and watch how
the payoff for each position changes as the market moves, and you will get one of the best learning
experiences that even the best reference book cannot illustrate!
Leverage, short-selling and options / derivatives are some of the basic tools that real hedge fund managers
use for absolute returns. Sharpen up your skills and see how you, too, can generate above average returns
and hedge market downturns.
