How to collect big profits from

a volatile options market

Over the past decade, the concept of

volatility has drawn attention from

traders in all markets across the

globe. Unfortunately, this scrutiny has also

created a proliferation of myths about what

volatility means and how it works.

Options Volatility Trading deconstructs some

of the common misunderstandings about volatility

trading and shows you how to successfully

manage an options trading account and

investment portfolio with expertise.

This reliable guidebook provides an in-depth

look at the volatility index (VIX) and demonstrates

how to use it in conjunction with

other analytical tools to determine an accurate

measure of investor sentiment. However,

recognizing a trend isn’t enough. In order to

give you everything you need to profit in the

options market, Options Volatility Trading

also features:

  • Detailed analysis of historical

    volatility patterns in the context

    of trading activity

  • Insights into the behavioral psychology

    of trading volatility

  • Revealing examinations of market

    noise that distorts exploitable anomalies

Author Adam Warner, a recognized trading

strategist and financial writer, sheds light

on the required mathematics by thoroughly

covering options Greeks and building a solid

foundation for more advanced options

and volatility concepts. He explains how to diversify your investment choices using the

latest trading vehicles on the market, including

exchange traded funds (ETFs), which

offer exceptional money-earning potential

for volatility traders.

Applying the conceptual lessons in this

in-depth book, you will be able to identify,

collect, and process the abundance of data

available every day in order to time the markets

like a pro, as well as develop your own

toolbox of best practices and time-tested

strategies for locking in big profits from

dramatic shifts in investor sentiment.

Most importantly, Options Volatility Trading

provides you with a go-to resource of dependable

guidelines that will help you become a

successful volatility trader in options and any

other market.
