Solid book, June 16, 2004 ByWilliam Rockwell (Chatsworth, CA United States) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Option Trader Handbook: Strategies and Trade Adjustments (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) You should probably have a bit of experience before reading this book. It is not an absolute beginner's book. However the concepts are presented clearly and there are enough of them so it is likely there will be something interesting for most everyone. You will need a level of mathematical sophistication necessary to multiply by two or three as well as addition and subtraction. This book contains no mathematical concepts beyond that level.If you are looking for theory, keep looking as you won't find much of that here. Practicality is the hallmark of the book.There have been thousands of books written on investments and options over the years. It would be quite hard to come up with much that is truly original. Instead the better books come at things from a different perspective. This book is certainly better than most on the subject. Here are some of the things that make this book different than most.There is no super secret no risk sure fire rags to riches in 30...

Not groundbreaking, but very good nonetheless..., June 25, 2004 ByRob Ryley "Robert" (Northeast NJ) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Option Trader Handbook: Strategies and Trade Adjustments (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) The Option Trader's handbook is a bit more in-depth than most basic option trading texts in that it explains what to do to after you have entered a position. Unlike trading a stock or future, with options, there are many possibilities. Other books too often neglect the adjustment part of a trade.Most option books describe various spreading strategies, but I know many novice traders complain about picking a directional spread (bull call or bear put), getting the direction correct, only to lose money because the spread still hasn't reached its maximal potential because of time value still remaining. This book tells you what to do in order to keep much of the profits without increasing risk. Many of the tactics and adjustments described were alluded to in McMillian's _Options as a Strategic Investment._ But that thick tome occasionally left out a few points complete novices might not pick up. So if you trade stock, long options, or spreads, and want to figure out what to do...

Good book to learn but not to make money, September 20, 2004 ByAllen Morrison "traderpro" (Manhattan , New York) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Option Trader Handbook: Strategies and Trade Adjustments (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) Is there a difference between learning and making money? As a professional trader my main goal now is to find practical ideas that make money. During my first year of trading , my goal was to learn as much as I can about the business of trading regardless of how profitable the information is. As I gained experience I started weeding out concepts and techniques that are not profitable. My experience in trading has proven to me that simple concepts applied effectively work best especially in options. In this book most concepts while understandable are elaborate option strategies with frequent position restructuring to adapt to the market. While it is always good to adapt,frequent changes cost you commissions and reduce potential profits. In addition success in option trading highly depends on the traders ability to assess the short term movement of the underlying stock using appropriate technical indicators. It would have been of great help if technical indicators used in...
