Do you lose money in options trading?

By Jack Wong
Optionetics.com.sg

I am a regular visitor to a few local trading forums. Very often, I see complaints from the forum participants in that they lost money in options trading. Some of them said that they learnt nothing from the instructors. The more sarcastic comment is that the instructors could not trade successfully, and hence they make money from teaching people to lose money. Do you believe these stories? Were you one of the victims who paid for these classes but were not able to make any profit?

Ezra’s EOC Delivery Of 1st FPSO On Schedule – Already Chartered Out In Largest-Ever Contract

Ezra Holdings Limited (Ezra, the Group) a leading integrated offshore support and marine services provider in the offshore oil & gas (O&G) industry, announced that its Oslo mainboard-listed associate EOC Limited (EOC) is on schedule to take delivery of its first floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. The converted 127,540 deadweight tonne Lewek Arunothai further enhances the Group’s fleet capability and has already landed EOC a US$400 million charter contract – its largest to date in value terms. The vessel, contracted to a Southeast Asian oil company, will operate in one of the largest natural gas fields in the Gulf of Thailand.

Originally an Aframax tanker before its conversion at Keppel Shipyard, the Lewek Arunothai, can export 175 million standard cubic feet of natural gas daily, ranking it amongst the largest gas FPSOs operating in the world.

FPSOs have the advantage of being able to commercially exploit smaller, marginal fields, which are abundant in South-east Asia’s oil and gas producing areas. With oil and gas prices at all-time highs and expected to rise even further, these fields will become increasingly viable to develop. The vessels are also commonly used in deepwater fields, where traditional fixed production platforms face constraints in terms of deployability.

Ezra’s EOC Delivery Of 1st FPSO On Schedule – Already Chartered Out In Largest-Ever Contract

Ezra Holdings Limited (Ezra, the Group) a leading integrated offshore support and marine services provider in the offshore oil & gas (O&G) industry, announced that its Oslo mainboard-listed associate EOC Limited (EOC) is on schedule to take delivery of its first floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. The converted 127,540 deadweight tonne Lewek Arunothai further enhances the Group’s fleet capability and has already landed EOC a US$400 million charter contract – its largest to date in value terms. The vessel, contracted to a Southeast Asian oil company, will operate in one of the largest natural gas fields in the Gulf of Thailand.

Originally an Aframax tanker before its conversion at Keppel Shipyard, the Lewek Arunothai, can export 175 million standard cubic feet of natural gas daily, ranking it amongst the largest gas FPSOs operating in the world.

FPSOs have the advantage of being able to commercially exploit smaller, marginal fields, which are abundant in South-east Asia’s oil and gas producing areas. With oil and gas prices at all-time highs and expected to rise even further, these fields will become increasingly viable to develop. The vessels are also commonly used in deepwater fields, where traditional fixed production platforms face constraints in terms of deployability.

Specialising in offshore support and marine services, Ezra is unique in the offshore oil & gas industry because it offers an integrated range of vessels for charter across a broad spectrum of the support supply chain. Ezra manages and operates a young fleet of anchor handling, towing & supply vessels (AHTSes), anchor handling tugs (AHTs) and fast crew utility boats, which offer transport & logistics support services that span an oilfield’s entire life cycle. Its self-propelled jack-up rig is used in exploration & production support work. The construction & production arm, under 48.9%-owned EOC Limited, offers offshore construction, transport, installation and floating production services. It manages two heavy lift accommodation crane barges, a pipelay vessel and a floating production, storage and offloading facility (FPSO). Ezra also offers marine & offshore support engineering and training services, as well as marine supplies. Logistics and fabrication engineering services are offered out of Vietnam through HCM Logistics. The Group also provides specialty products such as customised safety equipment packages. Ezra’s Energy Services Division will tap into new growth areas as more oilfields enter the production phase. It offers well intervention, well stimulation, hydraulic workover, coil tubing, drilling, cementing and well abandonment work.
