Editorial Review - Book Description:
An indispensable resource for experienced and novice options traders and hedgers alike Dynamic Option Selection System `Howard Simons offers an in-depth look at options and risk management for the serious market participant. He uses his extensive experience as a trader and trading systems designer to provide ten basic principles that are at the foundation of every successful trading methodology.` -Leo Melamed, Chairman Emeritus and Senior Policy Advisor, Chicago Mercantile Exchange; Chairman and CEO, Sakura Dellsher, Inc. `Howard Simons`s engaging, colloquial manner makes The Dynamic Option Selection System: Analyzing Markets and Managing Risk an enjoyable read for even the most accomplished professional hedger. His ample use of real-life stories, like parables, illustrate the nuances of trading and the complex and opposing interests of buyers and sellers in the marketplace.` -Jack Wing, Executive Director and Professor, Center for Law and Financial Markets, Illinois Institute of Technology `It is the risk of potential reward that motivates many traders in today`s markets. Employing Howard`s ten simple principles allows us to `put ourselves in the position where the accidents will work in our favor` so that we can remain `In the Game`.` -Bennett J. Corn, President and CEO, Winnipeg Commodity Exchange; Former President, Coffee, Sugar & Cocoa Exchange, Inc.

Excellent. Lots of great insight, February 25, 2000 ByJ. Hoenig (Chicago) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Dynamic Option Selection System: Analyzing Markets and Managing Risk (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) Simons book goes beyond the obvious "how do" on options -- which is exactly where more writers leave off. He is able to take very obtuse institutional topics like behavioral analysis and apply them to intermarket analysis. This is an excellent book for the more sophisticated trader who wants to learn more about options trading in all markets, including futures. Great read and well worth the price.

Little use for traders, January 1, 2008 ByChicagotrader "Chicagotrader" (Chicago) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Dynamic Option Selection System: Analyzing Markets and Managing Risk (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) While Mr. Simons is very well versed in all aspects of market fundamental analysis, this book is of virtually no use to a trader like myself. I bought the book based on my knowledge of his previous writings and the book title. The problem is, as he states in the preface.... the Dynamic Option Selection System is proprietary! So how the options are selected in the books text is unknown to the reader.....thats why I bought the book! If your interested in learning a bit about hedging maybe.......but not trading.

Outstanding Book, June 9, 2000 ByPeter Handzel - See all my reviews This review is from: The Dynamic Option Selection System: Analyzing Markets and Managing Risk (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) Howard Simons' book is a tremendous resource for beginners and market professionals alike. I don't know who this jerk is who panned the book, but he obviously has no idea what he is talking about and ,furthermore, is completely incorrect in his criticisms. All of the equations in this book are correct.
