Liberty Trading Group

A Focus on Selling Options

About Liberty Trading Group

Liberty Trading Group is headquartered in Tampa, Florida. James Cordier, the firm's founder, furnishes over 20 years of experience in trading and finance to his clients, who trust the firm's representatives to apply their knowledge in option writing. The professionals at Liberty Trading Group have managed portfolios for private clients across six continents. The team's specialty involves selling out money options on commodities futures contracts such as corn, coffee and crude oil.

Where other firms often favor selling short term options, the account managers at Liberty Trading Group prefer to focus on selling deep out of the money options with more time value as their primary strategy. Selling options can help mitigate some of the volatility of markets always in flux by using time to the seller's advantage. Buyers who purchase options pay a premium to the seller. If the option expires out of the money, the seller keeps that premium.

Liberty's account managers perform due diligence before implementing any strategy on behalf of their clients. This process encompasses researching opportunities thoroughly in order to acquire trading opportunities that could benefit a portfolio. Option selling involves risk of loss and investors should consider suitability of funds in light of that risk. Account managers maintain a strict focus on risk management, and all accounts are guided by the firm's founder. Any research that managers deem advantageous is applied to client portfolios before being released to the public.

Understanding the Fundamentals of Options Trading

Liberty Trading Group is a commodity futures and options firm that offers dedicated services to clients of high net worth. Liberty Trading Group positions portfolios in investment areas that seek high potential returns but also corresponding risk. An option involves a contract between a buyer (holder), who acquires the right to buy or sell an amount of a specific stock or commodity to the writer, within a set time period. It is important to note that this contract does not entail an obligation to sell.

The purchaser pays a premium to the seller for taking on the risk of offering a set price for the option. This premium reflects a host of factors, including the underlying asset's volatility, time remaining until expiration, and strike price. There are several distinct advantages to options investing, including the ability to place protective put options on long stock positions as a safeguard against major drops in the price of underlying assets.
