    you can’t possibly move fast enough to do option arbs … the big firms and their computers are always ahead of you.

    “minimal risk” suggests to me that you aren’t a trader now. There is nothing in options that is minimal risk, unless and until you learn how to hold your overall risk to acceptable levels given the risk in a particular trade.

    the last statistics I heard, the odds against a new trader are about 50 to 1 — that is, 49 out of 50 new traders exit the markets within 3 years after having lost some, all, or more than all of their capital.

    the only way to prevent this is to either not trade, or to learn a LOT before you start.

    learning before you start is MUCH cheaper than learning as you go along. MUCH CHEAPER.
