Thanks for visiting RiskReversal.com

The focus of RiskReversal.com is to help equity traders/investors understand the alternative ways they can express their views in the markets.  Our main goal is to detail the uses of equity options to better define risk, enhance yield and make use of leverage in a cost-effective way. Most people’s experience trading options is one of frustration. It doesn’t have to be that way. When used correctly, options can reduce the overall risk of your portfolio, help you avoid and recover losses, and let you sleep at night.

RiskReversal is NOT A TRADE SERVICE. We do not offer advice or feature an investment portfolio. We are merely detailing trades that we place, consider placing, think make sense for certain situations and holdings, or observe in the marketplace. We feature commentary and trading structures that are intended to demonstrate the proper way to use options to hedge, trade and invest with defined risk.

We hope that readers and subscribers to the site learn that there are many ways to protect gains, cut losses, recover capital in down markets and minimize risk. We will discuss a number of scenarios and specific stocks and ETFs, using many of the options strategies at our disposal.
