Risks Involved in Options Trading

Options trading is a complex and high-risk form of investing that has increased in popularity in recent years. An “option” is the right to buy or sell an asset at a fixed price, while the value of the option is dependent on the value of another asset. This makes options trading a highly volatile and risky form of investment. 

Brokers must adhere to strict guidelines when approving customers for options trading and must ensure that customers understand the risks involved. If you have lost money due to a broker's failure to fulfill these requirements, you may be entitled to compensation.
