1.0 von 5 Sternen Zeitverschwendung, 13. Juni 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Dieses Minibüchlein scheint wohl eine Seminararbeit zu sein, zusammengeschrieben aus Lehrbüchern und Internetartikeln. Viele wichtige Konzepte, wie z.B. Implied volatility werden völlig unzureichend dargestellt. Miserabel editiert und mit vielen sachlichen Fehlern garniert ist dies eine schlichte Unverschämtheit.
Wer glaubt, nach der Lektüre mit dem Traden von Optionen beginnen zu können ist selbst schuld.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Vorsicht - absolut nutzlos, 3. Juni 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Dieses dünne Heftchen verspricht das Blaue vom Himmel und hält nichts.
Es ist offensichtlich das Resultat einer Seminararbeit, die zu Geld gemacht werden soll. In allgemein zugänglichen Lehrbücher und kostenlosen Internetartikeln enthaltene Informationen werden aneinandergereiht und mit gelegentlichen unterbelichteten Kommentaren versehen, die erkennen lassen, dass der Autor vieles selbst nicht verstanden hat.
Es werden einige Optionsstrategien aufgezählt und zusammengefasst. Es fehlen aber brauchbare Hinweise über die Implementierung und wie man seine Positionen verteidigen kann, wenn nicht alles wie geplant verläuft.

Die zahlreichen positiven Rezensionen sind offenkundig Gefälligkeiten von Freunden, die bisher hauptsächlich religiöse und Diätbücher kommentiert haben.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Investment advice for the kindergarten, 11. April 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I only paid EUR 0.89, so I probably should not complain.
But this book is an insult to anyone who can count to three and just a waste of your time since the information contained is just the most basic and obvious.
It's not only pretty useless but following his advice can be quite costly to you. He suggests to enter a buy order at the ask price and a sell order at the bid price. Sure, this is a way to get a fast execution but you can get ripped off pretty good when the bid/ask spreads are wide as this is the case very often in options. He adds to the misery by mentioning stop loss orders on options. This is the way you finance the yachts of market makers.
Strategies? The only one the author seems to know is purchasing options. Well, he mentions also writing cash covered puts. That's it.
There are much better books out there, even in ebooks. Check out the books of E. Olmstead, Jeff Augen or Tim Haddock. They will give you solid basics and profitable trading strategies.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Blueprint for disaster, 18. Februar 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
​​This book does not deserve even a single star, because it is downright dangerous to your financial health.

The author rehashes three well known strategies, like credit spreads, iron condors and covered call writing. Nothing new and nothing wrong with these strategies when you know how to use them.

This author has no clue and tries to fool the innocent with big percentage numbers. He even claims that the dollar amounts are not as important as the ROI numbers.

His three examples of credit spreads prove exactly the opposite of his claims. His favorite is a spread which gives a net credit of $11 while the max risk is $250. The annualized ROI is 114.7% while the probability OTM is at 88.8%. This means of course, that the expectation is that one trade in ten will go sour and produce a loss of $250 while 9 trades at $11 each would generate only $99 profit. The other examples are not much better. Not exactly a profitable strategy.

Of course, there are ways to defend an endangered position, but he fails to let us know about them.

His explanations about probabilities are also insufficient. He mentions the bell curve in connection with the Black-Scholes model but fails to explain its shortcomings. Has he not heard of fat tails, black swans and LTCM's experience with that?

If you are serious about getting some solid knowledge about options and how to make real money with them, have a look at the books of my favorite authors, Edward Olmstead, Jeff Augen or Tim Haddock.

3.0 von 5 Sternen some useful tips, sloppy editing, 19. Januar 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This little book is a good checklist for beginning writers. It contains a number of very useful links to additional resources.
Unfortunately, it is lacking depth in many chapters leaving the need to research further with other books.
The author stresses the importance of careful editing. While he is absolutely right on this, he chooses to neglect this all important task for himself.
You will find a typo on almost every page, mostly of the type that a spellchecker does not catch, like "an" instead of "and".

1.0 von 5 Sternen Ungeeignet für Trading, 1. Januar 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Wer heutzutage Black-Scholes noch per Spreadsheet berechnet und dies als Basis für Tradingentscheidungen hernimmt, muss noch tief im letzten Jahrhundert verwurzelt sein. Jeder haltbare online Broker hat dies und andere Tools auf seiner Webseite integriert.
Erklärung von IV kommt zu kurz und die erwähnten Handelsstrategien sind sehr fragwürdig und überholt. Selbst Spread Trading wird noch nicht einmal erwähnt.
Wer Tipps zum praktischen Traden von Optionen sucht, ist mit den ebooks von Tim Haddock besser bedient.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Comprehensive guide that made me serious money, 21. Dezember 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This guide covers practically all aspects of the self publishing process. It also gives hints to additional sources.

The very best information in this book is for the non US writer who gets his royalties decimated by the IRS. He explains very clearly how to get out of this. One hour on the phone with the IRS and my cash flow increased by several hundred dollars, making the purchase of this book the best investment I ever made.

Gute Beschreibung von Simulationen und der Entwicklung der Equity curve bei der Verwendung mechanischer Handelssysteme.
Achtung, dies ist keine Anleitung zum Traden an sich!
Wer eine Anleitung zum Traden sucht, ist mit diesen Büchern besser beraten:
John Carter, Mastering the Trade
Tim Haddock, Day trading with Heikin Ashi Charts.

This is an article at best, but not a book.
No useful content, just the obvious advice you could get from your grandma.
Your money is better spent in these books:
John Carter, Mastering the Trade
Tim Haddock, Day trading with Heikin Ashi Charts

These are my personal favorites.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Investing for Toddlers, 12. September 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This very short book mainly rehashes some basic concepts. Sure, money management is important, so important that it's already trivial. Making money riding a trend is also not really a new idea. But to call something based on an exponential moving average cross over a strategy is almost ridiculous. For identifying a trend at its early stages and to know when it is about to end you need a bit more.
For day and swing traders this book is outright useless.
You would do much better having a look at John F. Carter, Mastering the Trade or Tim Haddock, Day Trading with Heikin Ashi Charts.
