What I know about stocks you could write on your pinky

I remember in high school we did a project where we pretended to trade stocks. It was like math and I sucked. I didn't understand it and still don't. What is intraday options strategy? My friend Kurt would know but if you are like me, you probably don't have a clue. I didn't even know what OEX meant until I looked it up. It's the ticker symbol for the Standard & Poor 100. Still confused? I am.

The OEX Options site does a good job of explaining the overall gist of stock trading by comparing stocks to fruit and you to a fruit vendor. You want the best fruit and you want to sell it for as high a price as possible. They also have other teaching articles that go into more depth about blue chip stock, profits and losses, etc. If you subscribe to OEX Options, you get notifications alerting you to the best trades as well as teaching the hows and the whys of being a better stock trader.
