An investor can gain leverage in a stock without committing to a trade.Highly suitable for very short term traders.
Options allow investors to protect their positions against price fluctuations when it is not desirable to alter the underlying positon.
Disadvantages of Options Trading
Time kills profits in options at a very high rate and act as major disadvantage when u long option, while it is friend when u short option.
The costs of trading options (including both commissions and the bid/ask spread) is significantly higher on a percentage basis than trading the underlying stock, and these costs can drastically eat into any profits.
With the vast array of different strike prices available, some will suffer from very low liquidity making trading difficult.
