≈ Keep it in your pocket. ≈

We will begin The Options Heuristics Series with The Absolute Truths. An Absolute Truth is something that is true at all times no matter the circumstances.

Before we jump into the various concepts that make Options trading so amazing, there are a few pre-Trading Concepts (we created this terminology ourselves) you must understand. They come before anything else and, unless someone changes the way things work, these Absolute Truths will remain absolute.

Absolute Truth n.1: In order to buy something, someone must sell it to you. In order to sell something, someone must buy it from you.

In Options trading, there will always be a BUYING and a SELLING activity to be performed inside your brokerage platform. It doesn’t matter if you are buying a digital contract sold by an algorithm-driven robot sitting inside someone’s hard drive on the other side of the planet. The counterpart must exist for the operation to succeed. We will get back to this topic when talking about Liquidity, one of the most important concepts in trading.
