I would like to use Put options for tail-hedging as I do with my legacy clients. OTM Puts work well for this application, reducing performance very slightly but greatly reducing downside portfolio volatility during sharp reversals.
Are there any plans to incorporate any other instruments, other than the equities in the WD database, in the near term to permit such a strategy? I keep hoping that the WL team will devote some resources to upgrading WS as WL7 efforts perhaps slow down somewhat.

Trading options isn't on the WealthSignals table in the foreseeable future. We can revisit the idea after we push out the next couple iterations and get a feel for the demand.

Understand. In the absence of options trading in WS could there be a mechanism to advise subscribers of an options hedge that they could use if they were so inclined?

Not really. Although they're public, the Strategy's forum and information page.
