Options for the Beginner and Beyond, by Dr. Edward Olmstead

Options for the Beginner and Beyond:  Unlock the Opportunities and Minimize the Risks

Dr. Olmstead’s book is the #1 best seller among all options investing books on Amazon.

“Trader, professor and editor of a successful options newsletter Olmstead consolidates his vast knowledge and experience into this accessible guide to options.

Appropriate for both beginners and more seasoned investors, this book covers everything from the basics of call and put options to advanced topics like delta-neutral trading and the Black-Scholes formula. Because buying options is cheaper and less risky than buying stocks, these time-limited investments are a great way to increase profits. Olmstead is a natural teacher, employing a concise, no-nonsense and easy-to-understand style. Readers will learn why “time is money,” how to use vertical spreads, how options can cut your tax bill and how to make profits even when you can’t predict the market direction. Most importantly, Olmstead teaches how to “think like an option trader,” providing the market acumen necessary to maximize profit.

Sure to be appreciated by options traders of all levels.”
