returns in every type of market

Written in a style anyone can understand, The Complete Guide to Option Selling provides

This second edition contains all of the foundational information from the original edition

and addresses recent changes in the market with brand-new material, including:

  • New chapters on volatility and portfolio building
  • Fresh insights into option spread trading in the

    “new” market environment

  • How volatile markets create the ideal conditions for

    selling premium—and how to profit when everybody

    else is running for the doors

  • New risk-management strategies for the 21st century,

    including how to manage the proverbial “Black Swan”

Focusing on why, what, where, and how of writing options, The Complete Guide to Option Selling

is a peerless guide for seamlessly integrating options into your own investment program.

“Will change the way I look at the topic forever.”

    This man is telling it straight. I follow his strategy for now

    This man is telling it straight. I follow his strategy for now with ETFs and will switch to futures when I learn them. Not flashy, trading or risky, but boring, conservative and consistently profitable. If 15% + per year is not your thing then it's not for you.
