The Complete Guide
to Option Selling

Third Edition

In today’s dynamic and frantic investment landscape, “The Complete Guide to Option Selling” emerges as a beacon of clarity. The old buy-and-hold approach, now cheekily termed “buy-and-hope,” feels archaic amidst geopolitical turmoil and erratic interest rates.

This comprehensive guide pivots the reader from mere speculation to informed strategy. It demystifies the fundamentals of option selling, revealing why it’s lucrative and who thrives in it. Insightful sections delve into risk management, strategic option selection, and the nuance of seasonal market trends. Dispensing the need for convoluted algorithms, this book champions a blend of knowledge and pragmatism. It’s an essential tome for any aspiring option seller.

“A must read.. Not only does this book begin with the basics, but it moves well into the more sophisticated facets of the strategy, including the comparisons of option selling strategies to speculative strategies.”

– Lawrence McMillan, best-selling author of “Options as a Strategic Investment” and editor of “The Option Strategist Newsletter” and “Daily Volume Alerts”
