Your Options Handbook: The Practical Reference and Strategy Guide to Trading Option

Your Options Handbook: The Practical Reference and Strategy Guide to Trading Options offers a straightforward, practical explanation of the options marketplace, including its origins, the mechanics of the market, and how to profit from trading options.

Author’s Introduction:

In Your Options Handbook, I offer you the indicators, methods, and data that I examine and use. I’ll explain what I look for in them as well as the technique I use to find stocks to trade, and finally teach you the options strategies I use to trade them in simplified, specific, and practical detail.

Much of these methods are interpretations and combinations of all my mentors’ teachings and my own personal experiences over the years. There is no perfect system and every person rationalizes data, situations, risk, and problems differently. My goal is to level the peaks and valleys, styles, and formats, and offer a real options trader’s handbook, which I hope can make you some extra money, save you from losing more money than you would have, or just offer some cool insight to our little world of derivatives.

In this book are the most of the tools and knowledge that you must know to become a consistent, successful trader or to start your own trading business.

My approach is not perfect, but the methods and suggestions that you find in this book not only have worked for me in the past, they enabled me to make my living as a trader, both on and off the floor. I can’t promise that everyone who picks up this book will walk away an expert options trader, but what I can promise is that you will get your money’s worth. I left behind $70,000 to my first trading partners because they taught me the craft—that was my options training tuition.

I think the cost of this book is a much better deal! But in all sincerity, teaching, along with trading, are my passions and this book is packed with tips, suggestions, and tricks of the trade from a professional market maker’s perspective, I know that some of the data contained within this book will help you become a better trader, at least on some level.
