Book Recommendation Please.

  1. Hello,

    I'm new to options and in the learning mode. I've read a few books and understand some of the strategies such as spreads, collars, butterfly, iron condor and such.

    I'm looking for a book to take me to the next level. For example, I see there's the issue with volitility and volumn of a stock. Can anyone recommend a good book that explains some of these specifics. Thanks.

    The Natenberg book is great. A little boring perhaps, but full of info. I also like these sites. If you are a beginner, they are great:

    Good info for beginners and, at least as far as I know, they won't cost you a dime. Might be worth checking out to familiarize yourself with the concepts BEFORE you invest in a book that may or may not be useful for you.
