    Thanks for the great video once again, Michael!

    After reading your book, I’m quite sold to the advantages of selling commodities options and I have started to explore doing so. There’s just one thing that I can’t seem to wrap my head around – with so many advantages of selling commodities options, why are there still so few people doing it?

      Kenneth,

      Good question! Probably a number of reasons, first and foremost being lack of awareness – both on the public and even professional level. Its a very specialized field and thus, not many firms offer it. Therefore, there is little incentive to promote or discuss of it in the mainstream investment world. The media has little interest in addressing it (they want to hit the widest audience possible.) Also, there is the widespread belief (oft promoted by equities firms and media) that commodities are “too risky” or “too complicated” for individual investors. The solution to both of these concerns, of course, is education – something we try hard here to provide.

      Thanks for your positive feedback and best of luck in your trading!

      Regards,
      Michael
