A client of mine recommended that I read Sheldon Natenberg’s, “Option Volatility & Pricing” book as part of my education into the world of options. I’m nearly half way through the book and I’m really enjoying it. It’s written very well for such a technical topic and easy to understand. I’m learning how options are priced, how the “greeks” fit into all, and why how forecast and implied volatility work.
I think the main reason why I like this book and options, in general, is because of their mathematically nature. I can understand how options are part of many quantitative strategies and how easy it is to leave yourself open to risk if you’ve made an error in calculation.
I better brush up on my Calculus, sooner or later I’m going to be deriving equations again. This time not for a test but for profit!
