Look to Lois Lerner for Clues to the Fate of John Koskinen

The degree of IRS official Lois Lerner's responsibility in the 2013 targeting scandal may never be known, but embattled Internal Revenue Service Chief John Koskinen can take comfort from her story.

A Safe, Profitable Alternative to the "Lose Everything and Die Broke" Trading Strategy

There's a really dangerous investment craze burning up the Internet right now. Some unscrupulous individuals are pushing it as a surefire "short-term" strategy, while talking up the admittedly high profit potential… and completely glossing over the near-unlimited risk it imposes on unwary traders.

It's called naked options selling, and I wouldn't even discuss it if it weren't costing lots of traders everything. People are putting on these trades in the hope of huge, quick profits… but they don't own the stock they're trading on. There's nothing "covering" their trade.

And when the markets go wrong and these traders have to honor the contracts and produce the stock… Well, it's not pretty. The losses can be catastrophic, and the "smiles and sunshine" trading guru who recommended the trade won't be around to help cover those debts.

This strategy is so dicey, in fact, that I've never recommended it to my students. What's more, I've never put on a naked trade myself. Personally, I think the real beauty of options is how they give you complete and total control over your risk – not foist limitless piles of it on you.

But, that said, I love trading and profiting, too. So I want to show you a much better, far safer way to make a bid for outrageous profits, while keeping your risk firmly in check...
