I’m sure regular readers of Trader’s Bulletin are very familiar with directional trading and the various tools you can use to implement your favourite strategy.

But the reality is that no one knows which way the markets will move, and non-directional trading means we can earn money without having to second-guess what the market is going to do.

The tool for doing this is options.

It’s a real shame that these amazing little beasties are so little used and understood by retail traders like us – because they can be applied to implement a whole myriad of interesting trades.

If you are interested in digging a little deeper into the wonderful world of options, check out my article on the Trader’s Bulletin website.
