Options are bought to hedge (insure) or to speculate on securities. This article examines instead the sale of options in a conservative approach (in lieu of limit orders) and in an aggressive approach (in lieu of margin interest expense). Many know that an investor can use options to increase or decrease risk. This article will explore aspects of options that are lesser known in terms of option level approvals, option use in lieu of limit orders, and no interest expense versions of speculative leverage
