There are many sources for learning the theory of options, but few offer clear and practical guidance on how to apply technical theories to real market situations. Option Spread Strategies provides a hands-on approach to the most widely used and effective option strategies, including covered calls, collars, verticals, straddles, strangles, and backspreads. The book defines each strategy, how it fits into an investment plan, explains market outlook and the risk/reward parameters, and thoroughly assesses the specific mechanical issues of trading. Examples throughout illustrate how each option strategy can be used, and there are numerous exercises, quizzes and a final exam to enhance the learning experience. Drawing on the author's years of trading experience, as well as his highly popular seminars, Option Spread Strategies is a practical guide to successfully trading under any market condition.
