This introduction to futures and options markets is ideal for those with limited background in mathematics.From the Back Cover:
This introduction to futures and options markets is ideal for readers with limited backgrounds in mathematics. Emphasizing the use of binomial trees for explaining how options are priced, it shows how one- and two-step binomial trees can be analyzed and includes comprehensive treatment of numerical procedures based on bionomial trees. The book also devotes one entire chapter to swaps and one to options on futures. The third edition of Introduction to Futures and Options Markets has been revised to include an explanation of swaps that reflects their use for asset management and liability management. It discusses daycount conventions, scenario analysis, and value-at-risk. And, it includes a revised Chapter 16 that focuses on the volatility smiles observed for equity and currency options and a revised Chapter 17 to provide background information on mortgage-backed securities and explain standard market models used to value European bond options, interest-rate caps and floors, and European swap options. An essential reference book for every investor and investment professional.
