What is a long call?

Video Transcription

Hi, Casey Jensen again here at OptionsANIMAL. Now let’s talk about options. Maybe you’re brand new to options; we all start that way. What is a long call? Well, a long call means that you are buying, in this case, a call option. What does that give you the right to do? So, quickly, if you’ll look right here, let’s say we buy a September call option, and maybe September has 90 days until this option expires, so, within the next 90 days, I have the right to buy this stock that’s trading at, say, $100, in this case for, say, $105. You get to choose whatever strike price you want, so for this sake, let’s just say $105. You have the right to buy. So that’s a thing to remember when you’re looking at a long call, is you have the right to buy at a fixed price within a set time frame, in this case, 90 days.

Options Animal has been great to work with. There are many trainers to work with who have different styles of teaching and trading. I have found several that I like and learn from. The training they gave me has benefitted me so much that the gains I have made in my trading account has more than paid for my subscription to the lessons. Love this company and their trainers!
I am really happy I decided to subscribe to OptionsAnimal. Trading options is not easy, but OptionsAnimal provides you with all the information you need to trade options successfully. They cover all the different option trades, and, in the higher level lectures, they have algorithms which guide you through the management of trades after they are placed. I highly recommend OptionsAnimal.
