Applied Derivatives: Options, Futures and Swaps / Edition 1

Applied Derivatives provides a detailed, yet relatively non-technical, treatment of the conceptual foundations of derivative securities markets' pricing and investment principles. This book draws from the most fundamental concepts of pricing for options, futures, and swaps to provide insight into the potential risks and returns from conventional option investing.

Applied Derivatives is supported by the website which contains course software referenced in the text and additional questions and problems as they become available.
