From the Back Cover:

“An Introduction to Options Trading is a pleasurable book to read. The simplicity of the language and exposition make it accessible to a wide spectrum of interested readers, especially to option traders. Although no rigorous mathematics is discussed in this book, the formulas used are well motivated and explained.”

Karma Dajani, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

An Introduction to Options Trading is one of the first books to explain where the profit of option traders really comes from. Although people usually assume that this profit relates to bid-offer spreads, this book actually shows that there is a much more sophisticated way of making money when trading options.

This book shows why investors use option structures to satisfy their needs, and what practical implications these option structures have on the trader.

Explaining the theory and practice of options trading from scratch, the reader will quickly become familiar with delta hedging, gamma, vega and theta and how these terms relate to the trader’s profit. Throughout the book real-life examples will be used to explain the practicalities of options bringing the theory behind options to life.

After reading An Introduction to Options Trading the reader will understand how options can be tailored to an investor’s needs. The book will give the reader an understanding of the incredible potential of making money through options and will equip him with the necessary tools to deal with options in practice.
