Option Theory and Trading. A Step­by­Step Guide To Control Risk and Generate Profits

Description: Leading options educator Ron Ianieri has created a tried-and-true options training program drawing on his years of experience training new traders. Option Theory and Trading reflects Ianieris belief that new traders must gain a firm grasp of the factors that drive option prices as a prerequisite to learning about option trading strategies. Accordingly, the Ianieri begins by explaining option pricing models; option measurement tools (the Greeks) and how options can be used to create positions that precisely mirror owning or shorting a particular security. Ianieri then goes on to explain trading strategies, progressing from the most basic techniques to more complicated strategies involving multiple options. The goal of Option Theory and Trading is to give readers the knowledge to select the optimal strategy for a given situation and to implement that strategy in the most cost efficient way possible. In addition, the book explains the risk of any and all option positions; explains the techniques and costs involved in countering those risks; and shows when and how to exit a losing trade. By mastering the principles in this book, a trader will gain an in-depth understanding of options and will be in a position to make money more consistently and with less risk than the vast majority of other traders.
