Writing Naked Puts: A Hands-On Guide to Making Money with Options

Writing naked puts is a strategy for investors who want to buy stock at below current market prices. If the stock is not available at that low price, then the investor earns a cash profit as a consolation. Writing naked puts is for the short-term investor who has a modestly bullish bias on the underlying stock or index. This book is for the trader who already has a basic understanding of how options work.
