Also seeing the massive L’s on r/wallstreetbets has been a massive cautionary tale for me lol. Click to expand... Click to shrink... The simplest to start with is covered calls. If you're happy exiting something at price $150 say, and next weeks $150 calls are priced at $3 say, you sell those and wait. If it closes about $150, you're out at the price you were happy with and you have $3 more, which just got you an extra 2%. If the stock stays flat or goes down, you keep it, and you still have that $3, like I said a 2% gain.
