Newbie to Options?

  1. Hey Traders,
    I am new to trading, and I love the idea option trading.
    But I have zero experience and hardly know anything about options except for the basics.

    Can anyone recommend a(mentor) or videos/books on how to make a living trading options?

    Thanks.:confused: :confused:
  2. Start with books...FREE seminar's (thinkorswim) from the beginning. It helps if you have a background in stocks..the books that helped me are Laurence McMillan.."Options as a Strategic Investment" and Sheldon Natenberg's " Option Pricing and Volitility". GL

    "The Option Trader Handbook: Strategies and Trade Adjustments" by Jabbour & Budwick.

    "Options trading: The Hidden Reality" by Cottle (Cottle's book is a bit hard for a beginner so start with the other ones).

    For a beginner level I recommend : Mcmillan Options as a strategic investment.

    Intermediate : Natenburg Option Volatility and Pricing

    Advanced : Cottle Should Coulda Woulda.

    This was the way it was recommended to me and I found each book built on the previous.

    Hidden Reality is the updated Shoulda Coulda Woulda.
