Trading alternative to Dow futures

The Dow futures contract isn’t the only way to trade the Dow…

Often, traders don’t realize there are alternative ways to take a potential trade. In this video, you’ll see how trading options on The SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust (DIA) allowed us to manage our risk on what would have been an aggressive trade if taken through the DOW. At about $1.05 to $1.10 per option, we utilized an inexpensive way to control risk and offset what would have been an “aggro” a/k/a an aggressive setup. 

This is a great example of how risk can and should be controlled.
