The growing popularity of selling options is undeniable, yet it remains one of the least understood concepts in the trading world. This clear and engaging guide helps you enter the market with the confidence you need and generate profits with a consistency that may surprise you.

Now in its second edition, The Complete Guide to Option Selling is the only book that explores selling options exclusively. Since its original publication in 2004, much has changed in the world of options, and the authors have provided key updates to help you take advantage of these changes. You’ll find all the information you’ll need to start writing options profitably in equities, stock indexes, and commodities and maximize your returns, minimize your risk, and even manage “black swan” events.

With more than 38 years combined experience in options trading, the authors explain:

  • Basic mechanics of how professionals sell time premium
  • The misunderstood subject of margins on short options
  • Myths about option writing— and why they still circulate
  • Key factors to consider when building an optionselling portfolio
  • How to control risk—the right way
  • Effective, time-tested strategies for selling premium
  • Common mistakes beginners make and how to avoid them

Option selling provides a high probability of success that is difficult, if not impossible, toachieve in any other investment. The Complete Guide to Option Selling illustrates how to take full advantage of this unique approach and make it a profitable, high-yield component of your overall portfolio.

Don’t listen to the popular myth that option selling is only for professionals. The secret is out, and individual investors can now run with it. Read The Complete Guide to Option Selling and learn how you can level the playing field with the big guys. It’s a lot easier than you may think.


Option-writing strategies for high returns in every type of market

Written in a style anyone can understand, The Complete Guide to Option Selling provides the strategies you need to consistently profit in a popular but poorly understood market.

This second edition contains all of the foundational information from the original edition and addresses recent changes in the market with brand-new material, including:

  • New chapters on volatility and portfolio building
  • Fresh insights into option spread trading in the “new” market environment
  • How volatile markets create the ideal conditions for selling premium—and how to profit when everybody else is running for the doors
  • New risk-management strategies for the 21st century, including how to manage the proverbial “Black Swan”

Focusing on why, what, where, and how of writing options, The Complete Guide to Option Selling is a peerless guide for seamlessly integrating options into your own investment program.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A good book. But the wrong title 3. Februar 2010
Von AquaJeff - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I enjoyed this book and if it was titled "The Complete Guide to Selling Options on FUTURES." I would have given it another star. I read the reviews by others that complained that it was really guided towards futures options and still bought it because I wanted to learn about this market. But the title is misleading. I thank the other reviewers who wrote that because I would have been annoyed if I bought this book thinking it was a complete guide to trading options. The book is well written, thorough ( on futures options)and a good read. I learned things and that is one of my major criteria for any book like this: Did it have any new information for me? And it did.
I used to be a professional bond trader. I have Series 7, 63, 8 & 24 licenses. So I am not a novice to the markets but my exposure to option trading was limited to my own account.
The authors are part of a full service broker and towards the end of the book they really push full service brokers against discount or "order clerks." And the only full service broker listed in the resource section is theirs.I would prefer less spin towards their business and more listing of pros and cons of both as well as listing some other full service brokers that specialize in options and futures. That being said. If you're looking for a book on how to trade your own account I highly recommend this book.
That may seem contradictory but the authors really do a good job telling you what you need to know to trade successfully. If you can't do what they recommend or do not wish to spend the time you better not trade these options on your own.
As for me. I just might become a client of theirs. I need to do more research first.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book -- Highly recommended 3. Oktober 2009
Von A small trader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Probably one of the best trading books I ever read.

This book is clearly written by an experienced trader. You will not find a lot of math or complex explanations. Even the greeks, volatility and similar are mentioned very little. But it does provide very useful information and advice, oriented to implement a sound strategy that works.

It does a great job demystifying the risks of selling option, which is usually that make retail trailers afraid of using this lucrative trading approach.

In other review, someone complained this book uses a lot future options as opposed to equity options. Yes they do, and if you have an open mind, you will be glad they did so. Usually retail traders see futures as very risky, and therefore assume future options will be even more riskier. With the approach proposed by this book, they can be traded with a well managed risk, much lower than dealing directly with futures.

As they say in the book, when you start checking the marging required to sell future options as opposed to sell equity options, you will realize that you were missing a whole new trading world. Equity options usually require much larger margin, and therefore your ROI is very tiny. With futures options your ROI can be huge, and with a controlled risk. This is why they devote several chapters to introduce you to commodities trading. They explain it clearly and are very honest on what works and what doesn't.

Interested in trading options AND earning money?
This book is what you are looking for.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Decent Info, But a Door for Cordier to take your REAL Money 23. Oktober 2010
Von KaiMan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
After reading this book was excited enough about the material to want to add some exposure to my investing portfolio. They recommend throughout the book to work with an experienced futures option selling broker to get started and "surprisingly" they have their company Liberty Trading as a contact at the end. To me, I figured who better to prove out the methodology being preached than the authors, so with moderately high expectations I opened an account with Liberty Trading and had them trade their "system" for me. Unfortunately, this has not turned out to be much more than what seems to be a loose form of robbery. So far just this year they have TAKEN 15% of the opening account value in commissions, currently it is down almost 10% and has realized losses of 30%. With the minimum amount to open an account being $100K, my conclusion is they wrote the book to get "clients" (suckers like me) to make some real money. Yes, I know all investing has risk, etc, etc...been involved in the markets for years. But, this approach has been far from what the book described and definitely not one that lets you "sleep at night" as they tout. I will say that they are excellent writers, and this is a well-done piece of marketing for unsuspecting clients. But if the "pro" can't follow their own methodology from their book and still feels good about taking over 15% of every winning and losing trade, I can't see how the information in this book can be deemed much more than propaganda. Thankfully I have stopped the bleeding.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not what It claims to be. 17. Oktober 2009
Von John W. Robertson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book has some decent content. However, after purchasing I returned the book because it is aimed at the Futures Market. It does not let you in on this little fact until you are reading the book. It claims to be for all markets. It is not. It covers a topic and then tells you what the differences are compared to equities. I have traded both. If you wish to learn more on covered calls on Equities or ETF's this is NOT THE BOOK TO USE.

1.0 von 5 Sternen James Cordier has lost money consistently - check his history 15. Juli 2011
Von concerned - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Do you really want to buy a book from someone that has this type of trading history?

He is a registered CTA so he has to provide his trading history.

This is from his Disclosure Document he has to provide to the Futures Trading Commission.
