Welcome to part 4 of Investing In Video Games. In parts 1 through 3, we covered the 5 basic investment rules, a few pointers on portfolio management, how to select a discount broker for trading, and some basic strategies for valuating stocks. We did not cover the section on options because the subject is somewhat complex. There are many professionals working in the financial industry that still do not understand option contracts, so do not feel discouraged if the concepts do not sink in right away after reading this article. That said, to succeed at making a lot of money, it is important to learn how to use the tools available, and options are a useful tool. Learning how to use them effectively (not just for gambling), will result in significantly more successful long term performance. Since this particular lesson is more complex than others, we will keep this article 'on point' to give the reader time to digest the information.
