“In my option trading seminars I spend a lot of time on volatility, essentially explaining how it can help or hurt an option strategy. This emphasis grows out of my own trading experience and more than 14 years of interacting with hundreds of options traders – and the discovery that volatil- ity is the least understood dimension of option trading.B y publishing this book, my objective is to continue my quest – aiming to enlighten those still groping in the dark about the role volatility plays in options strategies. My hope is that this short eBook will keep you from needlessly losing your money, and ideally help you profit from trading. Trading options without a proper understanding of volatility can be likened to a surgeon operating without sufficient knowledge of human anatomy.”
