It's been going up for 100 years.
Thinking about shorting the market by buying puts or shorting indices?
To introduce myself again, my name is Shaggad and I'm the CEO of SmartOptions® AI, an options alerts service that is powered by artificial intelligence. I've been trading options for 3 years profitably and have seen many different things. But one thing is always the same.
Prices go up as time goes on.
You need to realize, the stock market has been trending up for the last 100 years. The growth rate is insane. On average, stocks are up 9% every year.
That is incredible growth. Not many places on earth can you get that type of growth consistently, every year.
When you bet against the market, you're betting that this 100 year old uptrend will finally stop up trending. Do you really think it will stop going up for you?
What should I do?
Instead of using your capital to short the market, it's more beneficial for you to capture that 9% return per year by being long.
If you really want to leverage the fact that stocks go up 9% year over year, you can leverage your returns even further by using Options, a contract betting on the future price of something.
At SmartOptions.ai we help you trade options profitably by staying long in stock options. We capture the value of the market and get higher returns by trading options.
