Equity Indexes for Portfolio Management (Ep. 2)

Equity indexes are the foundation of many successful trading portfolios. In episode #2 of tastytrade's "How to Build a Portfolio" Crash Course, we use the portfolio targets we established in episode #1 to begin building our options portfolio. To start, we lean heavily on market indexes, such as SPY, QQQ, or TLT to give us broad market exposure. By using market indexes before individual stocks, we're positioning ourselves to have a smoother ride in generating portfolio returns or controlling portfolio risk.
