Easy to understand

Guy started trading stocks because of their simplicity. You have a unit in a company…if that company performs better than expectations, the shares are going to go up, and if the company performs less than expectations, the shares will go down. So, from an intuitive point of view, that’s basic information that is easy for anyone to understand. 

Managing risk

Whether you are trading stocks or deep-in-the-money calls, your risk management is basically the same. You should use your established trading plan, with tight stops, a set-up based on the Big Money Footprints, and consider the current market conditions.  When the market is choppy, it’s wise to not be as busy as when the markets are smooth and you can take more or larger positions. Learning to be discerning is a critical part to achieving success.
