An easy-to-read and updated guide to the dynamic world of options investing



During the recent market turmoil, option trading volume actually increased, but many are still unsure of the opportunities that options present, simply because they don't fully understand how this market works.

With the Eighth Edition of Getting Started in Options, author Michael C. Thomsett looks to change this. In non-technical, easy-to-follow terms, this accessible guide thoroughly demystifies the options markets, distinguishes the imagined risks from the real ones, and arms investors with the facts they need to make more informed decisions. Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, this reliable resource:

  • Opens with an introduction commenting on the recent market turmoil and the growing importance of options

  • Contains new chapters on futures and index options

  • Discusses how to utilize the many new online resources available to you

  • Addresses the importance of accurately identifying your own risk tolerance levels and deciding how to effectively incorporate options into your portfolios

  • Includes sidebar definitions and easy-to-follow examples

Besides new examples, updated charts, and timely additions to reflect important changes in the markets, this edition also includes discussions on other important options issues, such as: how to calculate options returns; "test run" activities to try out new theories; and much more.

Written in a straightforward and accessible style, Getting Started in Options, Eighth Edition provides you with a solid foundation in this field and will help you become fully familiar with one of today's most important investment vehicles.
