This book is written for the person who needs to know the information and strategies to be an options trader. To many the purpose and function of the financial markets may seem like a bewildering maze of charts, trends, and data points that only wizards and financial geniuses could possibly comprehend. This apparent complexity can be extremely daunting to some and may discourage many would-be investors from taking advantage of the many opportunities to make investing profits or protect their nest eggs or retirement accounts. For many this hurdle can be easily overcome by taking advantage of the vast array of research materials and online tutorials available. As the novice investor gains more experience and confidence in their understanding of the workings of the market they can begin to place their first trades with a broker and really learn the ropes of buying and selling stocks. This is not the end of the trading learning curve however, as the financial markets offer many alternatives to the traditional buy and sell positions that may come to mind when a novice investor is planning a market strategy. One of the most useful alternatives is the trading of options. Options are a powerful investment tool that can be used for a variety of purposes, including market speculation and hedging a position in a wide range of market conditions. As these ideas are understood, traders will see that they are no longer limited to a "buy low, sell high" approach that is considered to be the only way an investor can make gains in the market. Once a trader has reached an advanced stage in his options trading education, it is time to start expanding the trading strategies in order to truly take advantage of the benefits these markets can offer. When comparing options trading to traditional forms of investment, it is clear that these alternatives provide many additional strategy choices to investors. The intricacy of these choices might appear overwhelming to 1. Language: English. Narrator: Harry Roger Williams, III.

Options, as you probably know, were designed to allow institutional investors to mitigate risk and act as tools for ensuring against market unpredictability. Thus the options contract was originally used to buy insurance against potentially catastrophic price movements that would have led to huge losses. But their inherent characteristics soon made options attractive to traders as speculation tools in their own right. To see how options became fashionable with traders, we need to take a deeper dive into what makes up an option contract.Options in common law: This is the basis of financial options, and if we consider the transaction through the lens of a financial trade, we can substitute many of the technical terms to make the metaphor more transparent.So, for example, when you go to buy a house, you agree to a price (strike price) and a date (expiry date) and a suitable deposit (premium) as part of the contingency of the sale (the option contract). Then, on the expiry date, you will exercise your right to buy the house (stock) at the strike price or walk away (let the option expire), losing your deposit (premium). Don’t worry too much about some of the terms, such as strike price and premium. All the trading jargon will be explained soon enough. What is important just now is that you understand that with options trading you are dealing with a contract - the right to buy rather than the asset itself, because that contract has inherent value as it derives its value from the relationship between the strike prices - which is fixed in the contract, relative to the current market stock price. And if the contract is deemed attractive to others in the market, then it also becomes a tradable asset in its own right. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brent Turner.

This book analyzes in depth all major derivatives debacles of the last half century including the multi-billion losses and/or bankruptcy of Metallgesellschaft (1994), Barings Bank (1995), Long Term Capital Management (1998), Amaranth (2006), Soci¿ G¿rale (2008) and AIG (2008). It unlocks the secrets of derivatives by telling the stories of institutions which played in the derivative market and lost big. For some of these unfortunate organizations it was daring but flawed financial engineering which brought them havoc. For others it was unbridled speculation perpetrated by rogue traders whose unchecked fraud brought their house down.Should derivatives be feared ¿as financial weapons of mass destruction¿ or hailed as financial innovations which through efficient risk transfer are truly adding to the Wealth of Nations? By presenting a factual analysis of how the malpractice of derivatives played havoc with derivative end-user and dealer institutions, a case is made for vigilance not only to market and counter-party risk but also operational risk in their use for risk management and proprietary trading. Clear and recurring lessons across the different stories call not only for a tighter but also ¿smarter¿ control system of derivatives trading and should be of immediate interest to financial managers, bankers, traders, auditors and regulators who are directly or indirectly exposed to financial derivatives.The book groups cases by derivative category, starting with the simplest and building up to the most complex ¿ namely, Forwards, Futures, Options and Swaps in that order, with applications in commodities, foreign exchange, stock indices and interest rates. Each chapter deals with one derivative debacle, providing a rigorous and comprehensive but non-technical elucidation of what happened.The book is translated and available in French, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Korean.
