It's so easy! Anybody can do it, in just a few simple steps. Before you know it you will have bought stock synthetically! Always remember to hedge your trades. Steps Buy a call option at a certain strike price. Sell a put option at the same strike price. Tips Don't get too cocky. It looks easy and it is easy, but there is always room for error. Warnings In order to minimize risk, always hedge your position by shorting the same amount of stock as you just synthetically bought. Good Luck.

I have tried options trading quite a bit. Unfortunately, I lost a lot of money. Judging from my experience, I would not recommend this to any one. One can hedge. But if one has only a small amount of money and few stock holdings, hedging will not be advisable. So basically for hedging to be worthwhile, one should have a large stockholding. That is why mutual funds do hedging. The best thing is to select stocks very carefully and then see the results. If stocks are selected wisely, one will be a winner most of the time. Oil stocks can still be good for the long run. In order to hedge, one has to understand them thoroughly and take quick action. It is stressful. one major drawback of options is that they are time sensitive.
