Thanks for visiting RiskReversal.com

The goal of RiskReversal.com is to help equity traders and investors understand the alternative ways they can express their views in the markets. Our main focus is to detail the uses of equity options to better define risk, enhance yield, and make use of leverage in a cost-effective manner.

RiskReversal is NOT A TRADE SERVICE. We do not offer investment or trading advice. We feature macro, sector, and single stock commentary and detail trade structures that are intended to demonstrate ways to use equity options to hedge, trade, and/or invest with defined risk.

What We Hope To Achieve

To provide an alternative to the stock-picking and investment advice that dominates financial and social media. 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. Our intention is to educate our readers in a way that they can then take those lessons and apply them to their own portfolios and trading accounts in ways they see fit to reverse their risk.


On Behalf of Risk Reversal Advisors, Dan Nathan offers consulting services to Investment Banks and Investment Advisors.
