The Business of Options: Time-tested Principles and Practices by Martin P. O'Connell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Providing the equivalent education and training of a week long custom seminar, this title is a "portable options course." Options trainer Marty O'Connell has put his lifetime of training expertise down in book form to benefit those executives who may not trade options, but who must manage those who engage in this business activity. Written as a comprehensive "training program," this volume outlines O'Connell's time-tested principles and teaches business executives how to manage an option-related business activity, while at the same time showing them the mechanics of how to trade options successfully with discipline and clear business objectives.
