From the Inside Flap:

Millions of investors have lost trillions of dollars to turbulentmarkets over the past five years. Millions of others, however, haveused innovative strategies to hold their own and even see theirportfolios increase in value. Create Your Own Hedge Fund outlinesone such strategy using exchange traded funds (ETFs) and options.

ETFs such as DIAMONDs and VIPERS are fast replacing traditionalmutual funds among investors attracted by their reduced expensesand increased versatility and variety, along with thefact—critical to the book's strategies—that ETFs trade onexchanges and are optionable. Option writing, on the other hand,has proven to give investors more winning positions, fewer losingpositions (with smaller losses when they do occur), and lessfluctuation in portfolio value.

Create Your Own Hedge Fund combines the best aspects of bothETFs and options into an investing program that works well in bothbull and bear markets, is affordable for the bulk of investors, andprovides overall package returns that are steadier and morepredictable than those provided by its component pieces. Thisresults-driven book is divided into four parts that fully examineeach element:

PART I discusses the foundation of the book's program, ModernPortfolio Theory (MPT), and why MPT makes it difficult, if notimpossible, for investors to beat the market. It then introducesthe advantages and drawbacks of hedge funds, and how to invest likea hedge fund with less risk and lower cost.

PART II discusses mutual funds, both traditional and newerexchange traded funds, and explains why ETFs are a superioralternative for the majority of investors.

PART III covers the basics and mechanics of options and optionwriting, a strategy that is historically considered risky butactually entails far less risk than traditional buy-and-hold.

PART IV provides the payoff, explaining how to construct afoundation portfolio and choose an option to write, then providingdetailed examples of option writing in action.

Create Your Own Hedge Fund details an uncomplicated investmentprogram that utilizes the best aspects of a hedge fund to providemarket-beating returns while significantly reducing risk.Straightforward and understandable, it will show you how to removeheart-stopping swings from your portfolio'sperformance—without sacrificing the performance itself.

Whether you are new tooptions and ETFs or a long-time trader, the book details astraightforward, simple-to-follow method of creating a hedgedportfolio in any market condition with significant returns."
—Philip Budwick, coauthor of The Option Trader Handbook:Strategies and Trade Adjustments
