Do people buy options way out of the money then use those options to purchase the underlying stock for far less than it's current market price, then sell said stock for current market price for a profit of the difference minus cost of option?
Most people outside the US do not trade stocks with options. they are different animals and a stock can move >10% in a day -you really don't want to be on the wrong side. Index options are the way to go.

That doesn't make much sense - can you provide an example?

I think that it's easy to find all the stuff that will cost you money- the proliferation of spread bets is the shining example. they all offer bells and whistles but few traders make anything. It took me years to get profitable with options because I'm an idiot. Took me 7 years to find out about options from my initial interest in the markets
