Stock Market seems volatile

I really need to learn options. Also watching Ford.  Going to add it to my portfolio shortly. 

Don't learn from me as I am taking a bath on that option. I usually buy both a put and a call (a straddle) but I ignorantly thought there was way to much upside to bother with the put. But I have 9 months to recover. I agree it looks like a good one to add.

The problem with options is when the strike date hits and you are out of the money it closes and you own nothing. Ford is way down but i can hold it forever or until it goes bankrupt.

Learn straddle strategies. It's harder to lose money. All you need is for the stock to go up or down enough. So buy a straddle with a strike date in 2022 and wait for some movement.
