Options trading can offer investors flexibility, and options can be “leveraged” to, for example, multiple gains by two. But options can also expose investors to amplified losses; if a leveraged option multiples gains by two, it will also multiply losses by the same sum. These so-called “Yield Enhancement Strategies” have recently come under fire as some large firms, including UBS, have enticed investors to employ them. For example, the UBS “Iron Condor” strategy is a highly complex and speculative strategy involving options contracts.
