Financial freedom is usually the number one goal that most investors aim for. Some want that freedom as soon as next month or next year, while some work through a very disciplined approach and prepare for long haul. Albeit, talk to any financial planner and he or she will direct you to that “one number” you need your net worth by to retire comfortably and often that number starts with $Million and or above.
Monevator has a different way to think about it.

Don’t forget the landmark decision on Thursday– A key congressional panel on Thursday approved legislation introduced by the Texas congressman that – for the first time in the central bank’s 95-year-history — would require government audits of Federal Reserve monetary policy, as well as how much the central bank has lent and will lend to specific bank.

Coming back to option trading, Here are two important links that I will highly recommend to those who are new to Option Trading. First one is a link to Chartbender; they have an excellent free web manual of various option trading strategies. This is a visual representation of basic spreads i.e. Calendar spread, Iron Condor, Credit spreads, Debit Spreads, Diagonal spreads, Butterflies and more. Read it to gain a good understanding of various option trading strategies.
Second link is to an Option Strategy Screener ; once you have formed an idea about various option trading strategies, it’s time to simulate and screen some of those. While you are simulating a strategy, the simulator also provides you with explanation.
Once you are done with basic understanding of Option trading, sign-up for OptionPundit for a real world experience, to make money consistently, together.
