Options trading allows you to maximize your potential reward while minimizing your risk. A small investment in options gives you as much potential for profit as a much larger investment in the underlying asset itself. But trading options requires discipline and knowledge. Those entering the market without proper training may quickly lose confidence -- and cash. Here's a fresh perspective on options trading. In sharing his greatest achievements and biggest disappointments as an options trader, Yates offers a realistic assessment of what it takes to trade options. Included is an OptionVue educational CD as a guide to the options market and a resource for traders looking to increase their knowledge of options.
