Options trading is a very difficult thing to learn as a beginner, as there are many moving parts and many concepts to learn simultaneously. In this video, my goal is to bring you from zero to hero in a few hours, even if you don't know anything about trading options. We are going to explore the world of options through many examples and graphical illustrations, and explanations simplified as much as possible. My goal for this video is to provide you with an overview of the biggest options trading ideas and get you to a point where you understand the concepts intuitively, and not just things you've memorized. In this video, we will advance through the following sections: 0:00 - Introduction 0:50 - Basic Option Characteristics (Expiration, Strike Price, Contract Multiplier) 3:31 - Call Option Introduction 4:47 - Basic Call Option Example (With a House) 10:13 - TSLA Call Option Example 15:43 - Do You Have to Exercise an Option to Make a Profit? 23:42 - What We've Learned About Call Options 27:19 - Losing Money Buying Calls 27:52 - ADBE Call Option Example 31:57 - Put Option Introduction 33:35 - IWM Put Option Example 40:47 - Losing Money Buying Puts 42:00 - NVDA Put Option Example 45:35 - Buying Puts vs. Shorting Stock 48:47 - Option Price Components (Intrinsic & Extrinsic Value) 53:27 - Extrinsic/Time Value Explained 58:50 - Extrinsic Value Comparison Using AAPL Options 1:05:21 - In-the-Money (ITM), Out-of-the-Money (OTM), At-the-Money (ATM) 1:07:13 - Introduction to Shorting Options 1:09:06 - IWM Short Call Option Example 1:14:00 - NFLX Short Call Example (Big Loss) 1:18:26 - Short Call Breakeven Price Explanation + Illustration 1:21:12 - Shorting Put Options Introduction 1:22:15 - ATVI Short Put Example 1:28:00 - Thoughts on Holding Short Options Through Expiration 1:30:12 - Implied Volatility Introduction 1:41:54 - Visualizing a Change in Implied Volatility 1:49:20 - More on Exercise & Assignment 1:53:04 - Expiration and Automatic Exercise/Assignment 1:54:44 - Why Options Are Rarely Exercised Before Expiration (Quick Example) 1:58:02 - Which Options to Trade?

I put a lot of effort into this video and my goal is to clear up a lot of the confusion around options trading, particularly for beginner traders. It's not a perfect video, and we didn't talk about everything, but we walked through the biggest options trading ideas. For additional information, please check out the videos linked below!
