Well-known options strategist and instructor George Fontanills has updated his time-tested and bestselling book, The Options Course. This edition improves and expands upon the original to help you avoid some common and costly options mistakes. The systematic, step-by-step approach, covers everything from basic concepts to sophisticated techniques and is designed for investors at all levels of experience.
Options are one of the most profitable tools available to traders today. They offer traders the ability to leverage positions, manage risk, and enhance returns on existing portfolios. To those who choose to trade options, this book provides the practical knowledge from basic concepts to sophisticated techniques—necessary for successful options trading. It is designed to provide novice and intermediate traders with methods and strategies that will enhance profits and manage risk more effectively.
During the past 10 years of teaching individuals how to make money in the markets, I have had the opportunity to meet thousands of people, and they each seek ways to improve their lives—both for themselves and for their families. I hope that your own personal success will enable you to help your loved ones. Just remember that life is short and there are many roads it may take; but if we do our best to be good to others, then any path we take should also reward us many times over.
I certainly hope this book will help you to change your life in a positive way. The powerful strategies reviewed in it offer traders the ability to consistently make good returns when these trading approaches are solidly understood and strategically applied. Although at times it may seem like an insurmountable task to comprehend all aspects of options, I promise that it is well worth the effort. Just think back at how much time and money you spent in getting to where you are today. A little more consistent time and effort can reward you many times over.
