The video starts by discussing the benefit of trading options, which is the ability to leverage returns and potentially have lower loss potential compared to simply trading stocks.

Then, we'll explain basic options trading concepts by walking through each concept and explaining them intuitively.

We'll start by discussing the two options types:

1) Call Options

2) Put Options

With each option type, we'll go through some hypothetical trade examples so you can understand scenarios when buying and selling calls and puts can be profitable, and when the trades will lose money.
