Carley Garner: All You Need To Know About Commodity Trading

Show notes:

In episode 61 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Carley Garner, a commodity and option trader. She is the woman behind DeCarley Trading, an award-winning commodity broker.

Carley have been in the trading business for over 12 years and started with options from day 1.

Carley mentions that option trading is done at a slower pace than other assets such as Forex, stocks, and futures. 90% of options expires worthless. We also discuss option selling, a way to make money on a higher probability with unlimited risk. As an option buyer, the risk is limited but the probability of making a profit is smaller.
