When I was about 8 years old we took our 15ft aluminum bass boat out on the Amite to putt around one afternoon. Once we were about 2 miles from the launch my old man realized we somehow lost the plug and our rig was filling up fast. He hauled arse back to the launch and it took everything his POS Jee...

Beta simply measures how much a security moves compared to the market. For example if the market goes up 10% and Stock A goes up 15%, that stocks beta...

I would suggest doing some good reading on this before diving in so quickly. Find a book on the basics of options(maybe an old Series 7 book) and read about them on investopedia. The fact that you think these are "no-risk" transactions shows that you aren't ready to do this stuff. If you can't expla...
