Though there are many variations and nuances, the basic concept of options trading is simple: An investor can purchase an option to buy stock without actually buying the stock itself. Then, as the value of the stock rises, the value of the option rises also. The investor can then sell that option to someone else for a profit-without ever having owned the underlying stock. This book provides readers with the basic tools to begin trading options through the best and safest method available: spread trading. Spread trading is the practice of combining options trades and adjusting them over time. In addition, while most discussions about options trading do not emphasize how both parties in an options trade can come out ahead. "Spread Trading" undercuts this assumption and explains how to profit on either side of a deal.
