If you're going to invest in options you will also need an option trading strategy. Perhaps not for beginners, options are known to be associated with higher risk taking than other investment forms. Getting educated will help you understand the market and also to develop a strategy. Strategies will involve things like assessing the market and calculating risks in connection with potential investments. Obviously the stakes with option trading are high, with chances of huge gains but also huge losses. Better safe than sorry may not apply.
