    While many people have a direct exposure to the stock market, how many have used traded options and futures markets?

    It seems to be too complicated to trade options for the most of the traders. But, they can give you uniquie opportunities, allowing to adopt tactics wich are not possible in the stock market.
    To my mind, it is better to know how to use different market instruments rather than just one. If you have an idea related to stocks, options will give you more ways to apply it.

    I agree - many see them as a way to speculate but they can also offer a useful insurance policy and a way to squeeze extra money out of existing holdings.
