How To Trade Options in the Market With a 9-5

Options Trading for beginners
Are you ready to trade options? Here’s what you need to know first.

There are many ways to earn money outside a 9-5 but multiplying your money at will through the market provides you with another type of freedom.

If you’re like me, you probably hold traditional long-term stocks, some crypto, but have also been interested or curious about options trading.

Options trading seemed intimidating to me a year ago.

But after many months on and off of researching it, I’ve finally decided to apply the knowledge I’ve gained.

And it’s changing everything very quickly (options trading course on Patreon).

Why options trading?

how to trade options for beginners

Options trading allows you to make money at will, no matter if the price of a stock is on an upwards or downwards trend.

Differentiating calls vs puts is going to help you identify which strategy will best suit you as a trader.

While some traders use one or the other, many traders also use both strategies in different plays.

Trading options isn’t as risky as most people might initially think it is.

For starters, buying a call or put option means you can only lose what you invest in.

Another pro to trading options is you can earn money every day, or every week if your margin account has less than $25,000.

New options traders will find you do not need a lot of money to begin trading options.

To get started, you’ll need to open an options trading account and you can fund it with a few hundred dollars or less for starters when learning how to trade.

Reason why you shouldn’t limit yourself to a 9-5

9-5
Options trading for beginners.

A 9-5 might feel like you have some sense of security, but the reality is a 9-5 is never truly 100% secured.

Learning new skills will allow you to increase your income outside your 9-5 without having to take the risks of entrepreneurship.

Two of my startups failed while I was employed, the third one wasn’t scalable, and finally my first real business has been growing since 2020.

But even then, I knew that I didn’t just want to earn money per project.

I asked myself, “how can I earn money on a regular basis?”

That’s when I began to study options trading before actually committing to making my first trade.

The hardest part for me was taking action after I had digested the knowledge on how to make my first trade.

But let me tell you, once I made my first trade, I got a rush.

Because I wanted to do it for so long and I was finally doing it.

I had a strategy in mind I always thought of using and I finally began putting it to work.

I made gains on my first trade, gains on my second, and lost a little on my third.

But by my sixth trade, I was up 10.57%.

If you’re a long-term investor you’re lucky to see these gains by the end of the year.

Here’s why these gains were so important

If you’re thinking to yourself, what’s so significant about +10%?

Well, you’re missing the macro vision here.

Think about how often you get a raise at work, are you even in a position to get a raise at work?

Imagine you getting paid 10% more one day at work, that be great wouldn’t it be?

Now let’s break down how much 10% is when comparing it to a few different brackets when trading options.

10% gains on $200 is $20 more per day / additional $600 per month

10% gains on $500 is $50 more per day / additional $1,500 per month

And 10% gains on $1,000 is $100 more per day / additional $3,000 per month

Now that’s a lot better, right?

If you are able to make $1 trading options then you can make $10 trading options and $100, and so on.

And while not every trade will be a 10% gain day, some will be bigger days and some less.

This is where strategy and due diligence will play a big part in your success rate.

How to prepare for options trading

Options trading for beginners.

Read the differences between calls vs puts.

I break down the differences in this article and make it very easy for beginners to understand how they work.

Call options are bullish bets a stock will go up while put options are a bearish bet a stock will go down.

You will also want to familiarize yourself with the meanings of OTM (out the money), ITM (in the money), and ATM (at the money), also explained in this same article.

And lastly, you will need to use a broker that allows you to trade options.

Webull has to be the best platform to trade options as it has one of the easiest navigation layouts in the game.

NOTE: you will need to open a margin account and not a cash account to trade options with Webull.

Is AMC A Good Stock to Buy?

is AMC a good stock to buy?
AMC Entertianment Holdings, Inc. – is AMC a good stock to buy? AMCStock Reddit

You might have heard all the ruckus going on with AMC and are now wondering, is AMC a good stock to buy?

What was once a struggling movie theatre chain company is now a rising phoenix innovating in every direction the market demands.

AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. came near bankruptcy when the pandemic shut down movie theatres across the country.

Now that the world seems to be going back to normal, people are wondering how the movie theatre chain will stand against online streaming.

In this article I’m going to break down earnings, debt, short percentage, and various key factors that will help you make a decision.

Let’s begin.

AMC now has positive EBITDA

AMC Positive EBITDA - is AMC a good stock to buy?
‘The Batman’ – AMCStock Reddit

AMC Entertainment announced during their Q4 earnings call that the company now has positive cash flow for the first time in two years.

EBITDA provides investors with a snapshot of a company’s overall financial performance.

AMC currently has a positive net cash flow of $160 million.

Why is this important?

The company almost went bankrupt during the lockdowns during the pandemic.

This is massive progress for any company to stand up after almost being defeated.

It demonstrates the will to succeed.

AMC box office grosses improved each and every quarter of 2020 and 2021 as the number of movie titles increased.

The company hosted approximately 60 million guests in the United States, Europe, and Middle East in Q4 of 2021 alone.

The recovery for AMC has been incredible in such a short period of time.

Now that the company has positive cash flow, AMC Entertainment will be able to provide more value to its guests and shareholders alike.

AMC futures

AMC Entertainment saw more than $1.8 billion in liquidity its fourth quarter of 2021 and anticipates doubling its revenue this year 2022.

With more movie titles coming to the big screen this new year, CEO and President Adam Aron says the $1.8 billion will provide AMC with more security and flexibility to go on the offense.

AMC Entertainment doesn’t plan on sitting on this money, but rather on using it to play offense and innovate.

Adam Aron says he plans on obtaining licensing agreements to feature live movie concerts and live sports events in theatres.

If you’re betting on AMC long term you might want to become an owner of the company by purchasing the stock.

90% of retail investors now own the century old movie theatre chain according to the CEO.

The company has a strong and loyal shareholder base that even played a major role in resuscitating the company when it faced bankruptcy.

Adam Aron praises his shareholders as they are the majority owners of the company.

It’s a first in history where shareholders have a massive ownership of a company this big.

The CEO communicates with shareholders on Twitter where he takes ideas from the public to better structure certain areas of the company.

The number of AMC shareholder has increased from 3 million last year to now more than 4 million this new year 2022.

Innovation and revenue streams

AMC Perfectly Popcorn Brand - AMC Innovation and revenue streams
AMC Perfectly Popcorn Brand – AMCStock Reddit

AMC Entertainment has really transformed its business model and is now taking form of a modern-type business.

This leading movie industry chain is now accepting cryptocurrencies as a form of online payment for movie theatre tickets, gift cards, and other accessories.

Not only have they cultivated the crypto movement, but the company is also releasing NFTs when new movie titles are released.

With NFTs, AMC Entertainment will earn a royalty every time an NFT is sold or traded in the marketplace.

This opens opportunity in the marketplace for both AMC Entertainment the company and the asset owner.

AMC Perfectly Popcorn brand is on track to hit retail stores and supermarkets this year too.

They will be selling AMC Perfectly Popcorn brand microwavable popcorn at your favorite grocery stores and outlets.

Adam Aron announced during the Q4 earnings call that AMC and UberEATS are working on making it possible to order pre-packaged popcorn for home-delivery services.

So even if you’re not going out to the movies, you can order AMC Perfectly Branded popcorn for that movie night at home.

This is just one way the company is hedging against online streaming.

Once the theatre chain has access to exclusively release live concerts and sports events, the theatrical experience is going to transform how we look at movie theatres today.

Although online streaming has blown up, the theatre experience is something you cannot replicate anywhere else.

And the data has spoken for it.

Does AMC have debt?

does AMC have debt?

AMC Entertainment, like many companies has debt.

However, unlike the previous year when they had debt and negative cash flow, the company has eliminated most of its debt and created positive EBITDA.

AMC paid $61 million of deferred (postponed) rent in Q4 of 2021, reducing their total deferred rent to $315 million.

It reduced a total of $155 million of deferred rent over the last 9 months of 2021.

They plan to reduce the deferred rent by $150-$200 million in 2022 leaving them with $160-$115 million left for 2023.

This amount could be paid in full that same year.

So, while they still owe money, the execution is being handled with vigorous accountability and success.

AMC Entertainment should have no problem paying this off while maintaining a positive EBITDA through its multiple revenue streams.

Last year the company sold a $950 million junk bond which they used to pay down debt and refinance certain interests to much lower rates.

This has given the company much more flexibility than needed.

I think it’s fair to say the company has proved that it can handle its use of money quite well.

CEO Adam Aron also donated $1 million dollars of his personal money to charity in both stocks and cash.

“I benefited greatly as retail investors have embraced AMC. That makes it time for me to step up and personally give back.”

Does AMC offer dividends?

does AMC offer dividends?
Spider-Man NFT – AMCstock Reddit

AMC currently does not offer dividends.

However, the company releases NFTs when new movie titles are released.

These NFTs can sell on NFT marketplaces for quite a large amount of money, depending on the rarity of course, but they’re out there.

The highest sold AMC NFT was a Spider-Man NFT that sold for $17,000 according to Adam Aron.

When Spider-Man No Way Home came out, the first movie ticket buyers received random Spider-Man NFTs.

This is another great incentive to encourage engagement and revenue for the company.

I mean, what other company is truly innovating like this?

Elon Musk announced in January Tesla would accept Dogecoin for its merchandise.

But even he hasn’t gotten involved in NFTs like Adam Aron has, with all respect to Mr. Musk.

AMC shareholders who signed up before December 31st of 2021 also received a series 1 “I Own AMC” NFT.

More than half a million of these NFTs were created and sent to shareholders for free.

I believe these series 1 NFTs will be worth a lot of money years down the road as the company releases a variety of series NFTs with series 1 being AMC’s ‘originals‘.

The concept is incredible but only time will tell.

Are you an NFT collector?

Leave a comment below.

Is AMC still being shorted?

AMC currently has a short interest of 22%.

It’s relatively high meaning short sellers continue to bet on AMC’s stock price to go down.

In fact, the Department of Justice is investigating short sellers and big-time hedge funds for illegally driving AMC and GameStop’s share prices down.

Elon Musk spoke out against short sellers with Adam Aron mocking them for the second time when the announcements were made public.

Short sellers have been long accused by the retail community of tampering with AMC’s share price as the demand for the stock has not been accurately reflecting on the price.

Once called conspiracy theorists, major publications and regulators have now confirmed every allegation.

Predatorial strategies in the market are real and AMC has been abused by them.

The retail community is fighting to lift the market manipulation imposed on so called ‘meme stocks’.

The lift would allow the stocks to naturally surge based on supply and demand.

Is AMC a good stock to short?

Absolutely not.

Hedge funds have lost billions of dollars betting against AMC Entertainment and now the Justice Department has gotten involved.

The SEC recently warned short sellers of ‘short squeeze’ risks in a market transparency report.

The number of activists in the retail community has multiplied over the months and year.

Can AMC still squeeze?

AMC’s current short interest is more than enough to send the share price to an all-time high.

The company’s stock reached $72 per share when the short interest was only at 20%.

The short interest came down to around 14% shortly after the price surge but has since gone up to now 21%.

When AMC climbed to $72 per share it was with only 6% short interest out of 20%.

Is it worth buying AMC for a short squeeze trade?

90% of retail investors holding the stock certainly think so.

For many, the reward outweighs the risk involved.

Though a wise man did once say, the only risk is not taking a risk at all.

Is AMC a good stock to buy today?

AMCStock Reddit – is AMC a good stock to buy?

What makes AMC so different from most stocks is the peculiar spot it’s in.

The company is working extremely hard to improve its fundamentals by innovating, paying off its debt, and increasing its revenue streams.

In the meantime, you have a loyal shareholder base looking to squeeze shorts from their positions while keep their ties to the company after successfully doing so.

Moody’s recently upgraded AMC to Caa2 rating saying the outlook on the company is positive amid the cinema industry’s recovery.

And while corporate (mainstream) media might tell you otherwise, it’s important to note that these companies are often times influenced and bought by hedge funds.

There’s no narrative here, only data.

Is AMC a good stock to buy?

The stock could be a great buy whether you’re looking at a long-term fundamental investment or whether you’re diving into a short squeeze trade.

Just remember, this is not financial advice, and my suggestion as always is to never put more money in the market than you can afford to lose.

Always do your due diligence and stick true to your conviction.

Calls VS Puts: The Biggest Differences in Options Trading

Calls VS Puts
A simple guide to Calls VS Puts – Puts vs Calls – Calls vs Puts explained

This article is going to help new investors identify the difference between calls vs puts.

I’m going to provide you with a very simple overview and breakdown of what these two trading strategies mean in the world of options trading.

And if you’re not familiar with what options trading is, I will further explain that down below.

What is a call option?

What is a call option?
What is a call option? – Calls vs puts explained

A call option is a bullish strategy that allows a trader to profit from a trade on the upside.

The trader essentially bets that the price of a stock is going to go up by buying call options.

How does a call option work?

When you open the options chain, you will have many contracts to choose from, ITM, ATM, or OTM, which I’ll use as a quick example for now.

If you are betting on the price of a stock to go up, you might buy a contract with a strike price of a few dollars above the underlying securities’ current price, depending on your risk.

If the stock does indeed move up in price, you will begin to see gains on your contract.

You may then sell your contract and profit from your play when you are ready.

What is a put option?

what is a put option?
What is a put option? – calls vs puts options – puts vs calls stocks

A put option is a bearish strategy that allows a trader to profit off a trade on the downside.

Unlike calls, traders buying put options are betting the price of a security will drop.

How does a put option work?

I’ll use another OTM example for now and explain the other scenarios below.

You will have many options in the options chain to choose from.

Here you will be able to select a contract to buy based on the ‘strike’ price you’ve selected.

The strike price you’ve selected is where you believe the price of a security will go down to.

If a price of a stock is at $20 and you buy a contract for a strike price of $17, you’re betting that the price of the stock will fall in the future.

If the stock falls to $19 then $18, you will begin to see gains on your bet.

The closer the price of the underlying security gets to $17, the more gains you will see.

You can then close your position at any moment before the contract’s expiration date and take profits.

Both these examples are examples of an OTM contract which I’ll explain more below.

Here are other examples of how calls vs puts work.

What is ATM and ITM?

ATM vs ITM
Options trading: ATM vs ITM

ATM stands for “at the money”.

At the money (ATM) is the current price a stock/security is trading at.

When your strike price is near the current share price this is considered to be “at the money” (ATM) for both calls and put options.

ITM puts

ITM stands for “in the money” and will be a little different for puts vs calls.

When a strike price is in the money for put options, it means the price is above the “at the money” (ATM) price.

Example: You’re betting the price of a stock will go down, so you buy a put options contract “ITM” for $11 while the stock is currently trading at $10 (ATM).

You contract has a higher probability to earn gains since the current share price (ATM) is already below your strike price (ITM).

The further the price of a stock goes down from your strike price, the more money you make.

ITM calls

When a strike price is in the money for call options, it means the price is below the ATM price.

Example: You’re betting the price of a stock will go higher so you buy a call option contact “ITM” at $9 while the stock is trading at $10 (ATM).

Your call option contract has a better probability of making money from the start since the current share price is already above your strike price.

If the price of that stock continues to surge, then you will continue to make gains.

“In the money” (ITM) contracts are a little more expensive to buy since your probability to make money is higher.

“At the money” (ATM) contracts which are closer to the “current” share price had a medium risk factor and are cheaper than ITM contracts.

So then what are OTM contracts?

OTM “out the money” explained

OTM Explained
Calls vs puts explained – OTM – Calls vs Puts options

OTM, or “out the money” is the strike price above the ATM for calls, and the strike price below the ATM for puts.

Call option example: If you buy a call options contract OTM at $12 and the price of the stock is currently at $10 “at the money” (ATM), you are betting the price of a stock will rise above $10 per share.

Put option example: If you buy a put options contact “out the money” (OTM) at $8 and the price is currently at $10 “at the money” (ATM), you are betting the price of a stock will go below $10.

Remember, the closer a stock’s price gets to your strike price, the more gains you will reap.

So, the further out the money your strike price is, the higher the reward may be.

Should you buy ATM, ITM, or OTM?

Every trader will use the strategy that best tailors to their risk.

  • Out The Money (OTM) = High Risk / High Reward
  • At The Money (ATM) = Medium Risk / Medium Reward
  • In The Money (ITM) = Low Risk / Low Reward

Traders will need to study the performance of an underlying asset to get a feel and understanding of where the price may go.

Once you have determined whether you will be buying puts vs calls or vice versa, then you may begin to look at the contracts available.

Options contracts explained

Every 1 contract equates to 100 shares of a particular stock.

OTM contracts are usually less expensive.

With these contracts you can buy 100 shares of a stock for only cents.

ITM contracts are more expensive because they are the safest choice.

ATM contracts are in between ITM and OTM in pricing.

The options chain will allow you to choose when contracts based on short-term or long-term expiration dates.

You can go short or long on both a call and put options contract.

These expiration dates may vary from only a few days to weeks, to months, and even years.

Whether you should trade short-term or longer-term expiration options contracts is a strategy that will be highly based on your trading goals.

Where can you trade options?

options trading with webull
Options trading with Webull – calls vs puts options – calls vs puts explained

The most popular platform to trade options is Webull.

Webull is where I personally began learning reading charts and familiarizing myself with the options chain and data.

Here traders will be able to purchase calls vs puts or vice versa.

Some traders use both strategies to make money during a bull and bear market.

Other platforms where you can trade options include:

  • TD Ameritrade
  • ETrade
  • Robinhood
  • Fidelity

If you’re already invested in stocks, you might already be using one of these platforms.

The difference between trading stocks and trading options is that you will need to open a margin account for options.

A cash account will not allow you to buy calls vs puts.

You can earn 5 free stocks from Webull when you sign up using my affiliate link.

If you choose not to keep these 5 stocks, you can sell them and fund your margin account to trade options.

Puts VS Calls: Why trade options?

puts vs calls: why trade options
Puts vs Calls stocks – calls vs puts options – calls vs puts explained

Buying puts or buying calls allow traders to bulk up on stock and use leverage to make money in the stock market.

There are 4 different ways you can trade options.

  1. Buy Calls
  2. Sell Calls
  3. Buy Puts
  4. Sell Puts

All four essentially allow you to use leverage and make money whichever side of the play you want to begin trading options.

However, selling calls and selling puts from the get-go will require further in-depth explanation, which I will do in another article.

For today’s breakdown, I’ve explained buying both calls and puts.

There are a variety of things that attract investors to trading options.

  1. Short-term gains
  2. Big returns
  3. Losses are limited to what you put in your contract
  4. Quick accumulation of cash / shares

If you’re here today, it’s because you’ve probably seen people in your space talk about how much money they’ve made playing options.

And while options can yield a full-time income stream, new traders should also be aware of the risks.

Is trading options risky?

Is trading options risky?
Calls vs puts options – puts vs calls stocks –

Trading options has its risks as bets aren’t 100% guaranteed to play in your favor.

However, there are a few things you can do to increase your chances at becoming profitable.

  1. Familiarize yourself with technical analysis / chart patterns
  2. Only buy what you can afford to lose

While traders can certainly trade based on market sentiment, it would be wise to gain some understanding of how prices move through technical analysis.

TA can help traders determine the trajectory of a stock’s price moves in the coming minutes, hours, days, and even weeks.

It’s best to armor yourself up and learn as much as you can to properly set yourself up for success.

If you’d like me to do a write-up on bullish and bearish patterns leave me a comment below.

When it comes to choosing between calls vs puts, it really comes down to adapting to the changes in the market to help you increase your income potential.
