Publisher's Summary

This is not your typical options trading book, plagued with jargon and written by Wall Street academics who are more concerned with showing off than with actually teaching you how to trade. In Options Trading: QuickStart Guide, ClydeBank Finance packages the wisdom of the Wall Street elite into a straight-forward and easy-to-listen-to teaching tool. Options Trading: QuickStart Guide is ClydeBank Finance at its best, making complex ideas clear while endowing listeners with a wealth of powerful new knowledge.

Whether you're a newcomer to options trading or a grizzled veteran looking for a fresh take on basic strategy, you'll enjoy the plain-spoken style and colorful scenarios illustrated in Options Trading: QuickStart Guide.

In addition to providing a solid beginner's course in options trading, Options Trading: QuickStart Guide walks you through a multitude of strategic trading decisions, showing you how a trader thinks and how he arrives at critical decisions. This book wasn't written for someone who wants to stay on the sidelines, but for the ambitious trader looking to become a formidable, sharp, and cunning options trader.

You'll learn:

  • The fundamentals of put and call options
  • How to understand and leverage intrinsic value
  • How to use a stock's implied volatility to inform smart trades
  • What you need to know about "The Greeks"
  • The mechanics of the short sell
  • Much, much more

    Where does Options Trading: QuickStart Guide rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an excellent "basic training" on options trading! This audiobook will teach you what an "option" is, along with how options are different from stocks (i.e. stocks give you a small piece of ownership in a company, while options are contracts that give you the right to buy or sell the stock at a specific price by a specific date), This audiobook does a good job helping novices understand how to buy and sell options, and how to get started in a way that minimizes financial risk. The concepts in this audiobook are explained clearly and in easy-to-understand language-and an accompanying PDF will help the listener to further their understanding of the material.


    Any additional comments?

    I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Great addition to the World of Stocks and Trading"
    Would you listen to Options Trading: QuickStart Guide again? Why?

    Yes, I will and I have repeated listening to the book by itself and in conjunction with other information from Clyde Bank. The information is broken down for the novice and the non traditional student, those that have ventured into this interest at a later time in life and may not have the skill level for the Jargon used by advanced brokers, traders and such.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    Have you listened to any of Peter Bierma’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, as previously stated Peter brings a non monotone characteristic to this audible book. It is as though you are listening to your educated friend and not a monotone professor. which is important in keeping the interest of the listener.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Leaning about the 6 Option Trading Websites – Amex.com, Boston Option Exchange, d Chicago board Exchange, International securities Exchange, New York stock Exchange, Philadelphia stock exchange, European Style option and American Style Options; however this book focuses on American. There is so much information in this audible, but it is laid out in an interesting format and explicit detail is given where all can understand.


    Any additional comments?

    First and foremost this book was purchased by me at a heavily discounted price for a honest review of its content. I choose to receive this book as I have always had interest in Trading and Options Trading by Clyde Bank was my first choice as I have purchased books from this business and they have all been extremely educational and the books that have will remain in my repertoire of income options.

    "Excellent Options Trading audio book"
    Would you listen to Options Trading: QuickStart Guide again? Why?

    The Options trading quick start guide audio book is really good. The narrator is very clear, concise and speaks in a nice, deliberate tone that is easy to follow.

    I have a basic understanding of options trading and have made some option trades in the past, but haven’t been actively trading in a while now.

    I found this audio book to be really informative and helpful. It explains the essential basics of options including their history, different kinds of options that are available and the different option trading methodologies that can be used.

    Some of the methodologies explained include: buying calls and puts and covered and naked calls.

    The audio book also provides probably the best explanation of what a market maker is and why they do what they do that I have ever heard. It also explains very simply what options terms like in/out of the money, historical and implied volatility and why these terms are important to you as an investor.

    The section I found most helpful and enjoyable is the one on the “Greeks”. I was never able to gain an understanding of what these terms meant or what they were used for since they can be a little complicated to understand. This audio book did a good job of explaining them simply and what they are useful for including: Delta, Gamma, Theta, Vega and Rho.

    I also really liked the section on trading strategies including calculating breakeven prices and using the “Greeks” and historical/implied volatility to fully understand and execute your trade plans.

    I think this audio book is a great reference to gain not only a basic understanding of options trading but also to gain confidence in your ability to find and execute successful trades.

    I received this product free of charge in exchange for testing, inspecting and reviewing the product. I am not compensated for my reviews and are all based on my opinion and my own experience with the product. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising. I received free or discounted product in exchange for providing an unbiased review. I hope that my review was helpful.
