Options Math for Traders: How To Pick the Best Option Strategies for Your Market Outlook

Options Math for Traders is a practical guide to the math behind options and how that knowledge can improve your trading performance. It aims to help retail option traders understand some of the basic tenants and enduring relationships of options, and option math, that professional and institutional traders rely on every day. This book skillfully highlights those strategies that are inherently superior from an option math point of view and explains what drives that superiority while also examining why some strategies are inherently inferior.
