“I have been a member of the Chicago Board of Trade since 1973. Now I am semi-retired and bought your book. It was everything your promotional material said it would be…Thank you.”
S. W. Harrison, Jr., Member, Chicago Board of Trade

When I began trading on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) in 1980, I discovered there were few educational resources about options. Over the years, however, there was an explosion of options related material. Unfortunately, the average retail trader has been forced to distinguish between products containing little more than exaggerated claims from those of genuine value.

The objective I established for my book, Trading Options Visually, was to take the mystery out of options and to enhance the readers’ ability to trade options on futures.

Readers of my book learned the most important things I discovered as a floor trader –

Options are easy to understand when they’re broken down into meaningful pieces, and they offer traders a variety of ways to earn money, each with a different degree and type of risk.

Market direction matters but only to the degree that you want it to matter. Changes in sentiment (as reflected in implied volatility) and time decay (either positive or negative) are two other factors, or variables, that significantly affect performance of options trades.

You can combine options in creative ways to achieve the impact you desire for each variable.

There are interrelationships between market movement, implied volatility, and time decay. Changes in one usually cause change in the others. This means there’s a dynamic aspect to trading options that goes beyond forecasting market direction.

Winning With Options -
How to Effectively Speculate with
Options on Futures $19
  

This e-book shares much of what I’ve learned over many years about trading options on futures. I wrote 141 “bite-sized pieces” about options and sorted them under the following six headings:

    • Background Information
    • Volatility Trading
    • Trading Tactics
    • Probability
    • Comparative Strategies
    • Psychological Considerations

I discuss the subjects within each heading from different perspectives because I believe this makes complicated options concepts easier to understand. l include personal observations as well. The qualitative nature of this material is an excellent supplement to the material in my foundational CD, The ACE Program – Encyclopedia of Options Strategies.

Some of my writings will “strike a responsive chord” by reinforcing your currently held beliefs, while other portions of this material will challenge you to rethink what you take for granted. Still other parts will provide new insights into trading strategies you can use.
