Description:

Olmstead presents the most practical, easy-to-understand introduction to options ever written. Full of real-world examples and step-by-step explanations, this book demonstrates exactly how you can participate in the opportunities that exist in high-priced stocks for a fraction of the usual cost. You'll learn how to "collar" stocks with options to make money with no risk, why "covered calls" aren't as conservative as your broker tells you, how to protect your stock by marrying it to "put" options and even how to pick a broker who is options-friendly. Olmstead even introduces advanced trading strategies that are not widely known outside of professional trading circles. Every serious investor should understand how to leverage the power of options: this book makes it easier than ever before.
