When it comes to options trading, the more practice you get, the more profitable your trades will be. Most options books offer theory and strategies but don't offer the practice skills you need to prepare for real-world trades, where split-second decisions make the difference between huge profits and huge losses. The solution: The Option Trader's Workbook. In this unique and innovative problem and solution workbook, expert options trader Jeff Augen covers each of the key scenarios you're likely to encounter as an options trader, explains the challenging problems that these scenarios present, and gives you hands-on experience walking through the execution of trades reflecting the key challenges real-world options traders encounter. You'll walk through options trades designed to profit from rising or falling stock prices, rising or falling volatility, time decay, rapid price spikes, and many other factors. Each section is organized into beginner, intermediate, and advanced sections, helping you build your skills one trade and technique at a time, whether you're new to options or you've been trading for years. You'll find several hundred questions, all designed to mirror real life, and all supported with comprehensive, clearly explained solutions. Using The Option Trader's Workbook, you can get all the hands-on practice you need to become a consistently profitable options trader -- without risking a dime of your investment stake.
