    "I would suggest you read George Fontanills, The Options Course book. It should answer your questions as well as other questions that may come up for you. You got the basic idea of how to buy and sell an option. Better to read the book though." smallfill

  5. Well, I just finished reading this book from front to back tonight. I'm not a short-term trader, but took a look into this for EDUCATIONAL reasons. The first few chapters I guess were ok. Then the rest of the book turned more into.... this is how you do a Butterfly, and this is how we make an Iron-Condor...

  7. I saw his books today and now have the two of them in my huge library here. Of course, if it turns out I don't like them I know who to blame, haha.

    No worries for a while, I have half a dozen financial books to get through and return to the local library this week alone. :thumbsup:

  10. I'm currently reading George Kleinman's

    Trading Commodities & Financial Futures

    I'm around page 90 or so, and love this book, not just because it is hard-cover, but the paper is that kind of super nice glossy, but doesn't smudge. Haw!

    While most of it is based on futures (which I am trying to master myself in), he does go over futures-options as well, etc.

    I do like the way the author (who was a real floor-trader) has numerous side-stories of real-events he keeps bringing up so far.
