Overview

In today's extremely dynamic markets, most, if not all, money managers face pressure to increase alpha—above benchmark performance and profits—while protecting capital. Yet financial professionals must also be wary of changing market conditions that alter the strategies that will be most effective.

Nobody understands this better than author Scott Fullman, the Director of Derivative Investment Strategy for WJB Capital Group. Over the course of his career, he has successfully used technical analysis to create strategies using options, and now, he reveals how this effective approach can help you meet risk/return expectations in even the most turbulent market environments.

Filled with in-depth insights and expert advice, Increasing Alpha with Options skillfully outlines various trading strategies using a combination of technical analysis, market indicators, and options. Page by page, Fullman shares his extensive experience with you, and offers professional money managers the best tools and techniques to improve returns while managing risk.

Along the way, you'll become familiar with numerous aspects of this approach and discover how it can put you in a better position to excel in today's markets. Topics touched upon include:

  • The varying elements of technical analysis, from chart type and analysis period to time itself
  • Building strategies around reversal and continuation patterns, oscillators, and exchange-traded funds
  • Exploiting small inefficiencies in the options marketplace, which can offer profitable opportunities
  • Using options in hedging techniques that can protect your positions
  • And much more

Options used in conjunction with technical analysis can help you avoid financial pitfalls and achieve alpha. Understanding how to implement this approach in your everyday investment or trading endeavors can make a difference to your portfolio's bottom line, and this reliable resource will show you how.
