Yehuda Belsky Describes His Understanding of Different Financial Products
Trading on the markets is something that was once reserved just for trained individuals on Wall Street. However, since the financial crash of 2008, more and more people are seeking to get involved in trading as well, in an effort to take control over their own financial future. This has given rise to a demand for experts like Yehuda Belsky, of Brooklyn, New York, who are there to educate those who are not professional traders so that they can aim to achieve the greatest return on their investment.
Yehuda Belsky says: "I have worked in the world of trading for many years, and I have always found it far too exclusive. Hence, I have recently started to focus more on educating regular individuals who want to make trades to build up their own nest eggs. Being able to help someone put their child through college, or retire somewhere nice, is so incredibly rewarding."
In order to provide a better understanding of the work that he has been doing, Belsky has provided an explanation of the different trading options that he is familiar with. The first is through regular options trading.
"Options are a type of derivative security. They are a derivative because the price of an option is intrinsically linked to the price of something else. Specifically, options are contracts that grant the right, but not the obligation to buy or sell an underlying asset at a set price on or before a certain date."
Specifically, Belsky is knowledgeable on call and put options, which follow four main elements. Those are the buyer and the seller on the one hand, and the long and short positions on the other hand. Understanding who is long and who is short is one of the greatest complexities of options trading, and what puts most people off it. However, with Belsky's education, people are still able to trade successfully.
The second trading option that Belsky is familiar in are derivatives. Belsky explains: "Derivative trading is like writing a contract between the buyer and the seller, with the terms of the contract depending on the assets in question. Asset fluctuations determine what the value of the derivative is."
In most cases, derivative trading focuses on market indexes, interest rates, currencies, commodities, bonds, and stocks.
"Put simply, commodities are the raw materials humans use to create a livable world. Humans use energy to sustain themselves, metals to build weapons and tools, and agricultural products to feed themselves. These — energy, metals, and agricultural products — are the three classes of commodities, and they are the essential building blocks of the global economy."
Yet another product that Belsky has considerable knowledge about is binary options. Binary options are also known as 'all or nothing trades,' due to the fact that the person investing in them either sees a financial return of a fixed value, or loses all. Belsky states: "Binary options are incredibly popular with everyday individuals, but they are also hugely risky. You basically have a 50-50 chance of either making money, or losing it all. I have specialized a number of strategies in order to make sure trading in binary options is as risk-free as it can be, although I must state that there is always a lot of insecurity with these elements."
Binary options are often seen as nothing but a bet, although Belsky feels he has compiled a system that makes it a safer bet than ever before.
"There's a lot of money in binary options — for users, brokers, and advertisers — so this won't change overnight. Binary options trading is legitimate, but incredibly risky. You've got to understand the industry and the risks involved — and you might be better served staying away entirely."
