The stop order is designed to "stop" losses below a predetermined price identified by the investor. The problem with these orders lies in the nature of the order itself.

Let us see the pros and cons of Stock Option:-

Pros of Stock Option

  1. Low Entry Cost- Stock options are cheaper to buy than the stocks from which they derive their value.
  2. Cost Efficiency - Options have great leveraging power. As such, an investor can obtain an option position that will mimic a stock position almost identically, but at a huge cost savings.
  3. Less Risk, Depending on How You Use Them - There are situations in which buying options is riskier than owning equities, but there are also times when options can be used to reduce risk. It really depends on how you use them. Options can be less risky for investors because they require less financial commitment than equities, and they can also be less risky due to their relative imperviousness to the potentially catastrophic effects of gap openings.
  4. Higher Potential Returns - You don't need a calculator to figure out that if you spend much less money and make almost the same profit, you'll have a higher percentage return. When they pay off, that's what options typically offer to investors.
  5. More Strategic Alternatives - The final major advantage of options is that they offer more investment alternatives. Options are a very flexible tool. There are many ways to use options to recreate other positions. We call these positions synthetics.
  6. Flexibilty - For the most part, stock traders have two choices: long (bullish) or short (bearish). Conversely, options players have a wide variety of strategies at their disposal. Calls and puts can be combined in myriad different ways to profit from any type of price action: bullish, bearish, sideways, and anywhere in between. Seasoned speculators might ignore price action altogether, and instead use options to profit from dividend payouts or changes in implied volatility. Plus, options can be sold to generate income on existing stock positions, or to set the cost of entry on a planned share purchase. Rather than limiting yourself to the stark black-and-white palette of stock trading, you can use options to fine-tune your approach for any market environment.

Cons of Stock Option

  1. Lower liquidity - Many individual stock options don't have much volume at all. The fact that each optionable stock will have options trading at different strike prices and expirations means that the particular option you are trading will be very low volume unless it is one of the most popular stocks or stock indexes. This lower liquidity won't matter much to a small trader that is trading just 10 contracts though.
  2. Higher spreads - Options tend to have higher spreads because of the lack of liquidity. This means it will cost you more in indirect costs when doing an option trade because you will be giving up the spread when you trade.
  3. Higher commissions - Options trades will cost you more in commission per dollar invested. These commissions may be even higher for spreads where you have to pay commissions for both sides of the spread.
  4. Complicated - Options are very complicated to beginners. Most beginners, and even some advanced investors, think they understand them when they don't.
  5. Time Decay - When buying options you lose the time value of the options as you hold them. There are no exceptions to this rule.
  6. Less information - Options can be a pain when it is harder to get quotes or other standard analytical information like the implied volatility.
  7. Options not available for all stocks - Although options are available on a good number of stocks, this still limits the number of possibilities available to you.
