    Hey. I just took my 7 and 63 and am looking to learn about options. wondering if anyone can give me a good book recommendation that will give me a beginner's understanding of how to trade options. I have a good grasp of the real basic stuff (anything you need to know for the 7), but want to learn more.
     
  2. "Options As A Strategic Investment" by Lawrence McMillan

    If you're going to be a broker, read this options bible :)

  9. I thought about buying this book today but thought I should check these forums and Amazon for reviews. Glad I checked before throwing some cash down on this, found some good deals on it too.

    Only thing is, I am a complete novice at investing, and figured this book would give me everything I need to know. Would anybody recommend this for a beginner that is trading paper money?
     
  10. Try the Option Trader Handbook. One of the authors - optioncoach - posts here. You can ask him questions.
