A popular options authority offers you a hands-on guide to get you up and trading—even if you’re a novice

Options are extremely popular with traders looking to gain leverage and reduce risk, but books on the subject often get bogged down in complex mathematical formulas and other detailed discussions, which aren’t helpful a new trader. Start Trading Options delivers clear, concise, and ready-to-use explanations to guide you from the fundamentals of options through more advanced and powerful trading strategies.

Plain-English descriptions explain uses of calls and puts, strategies for buying and selling, techniques for combining futures and options to create synthetic positions, and types of spreads from strangles and straddles to vertical, ratio, and delta.
