Suppose you buy a stock at $ 100 and you don't want to lose more than 10% of your investment. In that case, most investors place a stop loss order at $ 90. If the price drops to $ 90, the stock is sold. But bad news, such as disappointing company results, are usually published outside market hours. There is then a real chance that the stock opens at price well-below $ 90.00. In this case the investor has a loss of more than 10%.
This can be solved with options. The investor who buys a put option on the stock does not have this gap price risk. The put option will increase in value proportionally, according to the drop in the stock price.
About 70% of the time, the stock market is in a sideways channel. There is no pronounced downward or upward trend. With stocks, you cannot make a profit in a sideways market. Their price varies little. With options, however, you can make a profit in a sideways market. You can also capitalise on time movements and changes in volatility.
