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 Getting Started in Options, Eighth Edition, 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.

  • Opens with an introduction commenting on the recent market turmoil and the growing importance of options
  • Contains new chapters on futures and index options
  • Includes sidebar definitions and easy-to-follow examples that anyone can understand

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.
