I have been trading options for a few years, mostly just buying or selling options or verticals. It was time to learn more. I also wanted very much to learn how to save a trade that moved against me when I wasn't paying enough attention. This was the one book I found that seemed to offer such information.
It's not easy reading, mostly because it is so in depth. But it's not mind boggling, just deserving of a little extra time and patience, and perhaps a re-read where the info won't soak through the first time. I think it has given me greater understanding of why my good trades go well and my bad trades don't. And it has made me feel ready to perhaps try some new strategies that I had a cursory uderstanding of, but now seem to make sense in the framework of the characteristics of the options being traded.
I think this is a must read for anyone beyond the beginner stage of options trading. It might be a bit much for anyone who hasn't got a little experience.
I have looked at lots of option trading books, and bought and read quite a few, not to mention looking at MANY websites and even taking a personalized Option trading course.
This is, beyond doubt, one of the best and most useful I've seen.
Aside from the usual basic information which is a must-have in a book aimed at non-experts, which is done an a good, efficient manner, this book really shines in covering positions adjustments and discussing their plus and minus implications. Where "adjustments" are follow-on-trades to be done after you open a position, and then the stock behaves as expected, or behaves opposite to as expected.
In this respect, this book is almost alone in explaining what to do, and the implications of the action.
My one quibble is that a lot of the worked-examples are done in text, mostly, where a table-form or flow-chart presentation would be better, I think.
That said, I HIGHLY recommend this book
You will need a level of mathematical sophistication necessary to multiply by two or three as well as addition and subtraction. This book contains no mathematical concepts beyond that level.
If you are looking for theory, keep looking as you won't find much of that here. Practicality is the hallmark of the book.
There have been thousands of books written on investments and options over the years. It would be quite hard to come up with much that is truly original. Instead the better books come at things from a different perspective. This book is certainly better than most on the subject. Here are some of the things that make this book different than most.
There is no super secret no risk sure fire rags to riches in 30 days plan presented. Instead there is an emphasis on trading should be looked at for what it is; a business. A healthy respect for risk is shown throughout the pages. The first chapter of the book is worth almost anyone's time as most people do not seem to realize they are in business when they call their broker or click on their order page.
Many options books present large numbers of P/L graphs on the various possible positions. This book is no exception, however they approach things from a slightly different perspective. Here much of the emphasis is on how to move from one position to another. They extensively cover many different changes you would want to consider making as the market or your perception of it changes.
Knowing the relationships between different postions is important for several reasons. First you can react quickly by having a good idea as to what to do in a rapidly changing enviroment where a few seconds delay can cost a lot of money. An even better use for this information is in forming your trading plan before you ever place an order. A third use is to avoid situations where there are no good adjustments if things do not go as planned.
The first negative that I found had to do with the length. In general having any 2 of the three building blocks (puts, calls, underlying) you can synthetically construct the other piece (indeed a large part of the book is devoted to this concept). The authors built a little more repetition into the book than I personally found necessary by doing the same analysis on mirror image postions. This is not a major downside as some will appreciate the review and others will simply skip a few pages here and there.
The second issue concerns the use of the terms free trade or risk free trade. The reality is the trade was not free and there is a price. The price may have been actual money, foregone opportunities, or increased risk. Sometimes the authors mention the cost, other times they do not.
An example of a not so free "free trade" would be to buy a call have the stock rise, sell a higher priced call for what you paid for the original. You now have a bull spread. This is free in the sense you now have a spread position at no cost. However it could end up costing you if the stock drops because the spread could become worthless and you could have sold your long call outright. The concept is good but I find the wording to be troublesome.
Overall I believe the money spent on this book was a pittance compared to the money made or saved by reading this book and I am very glad to have bought it.
