Customer Review:
"I recently carefully studied your book entitled "Options on Futures" and found it just fascinating. Of course, I have long been a seller of SPX cash market options and your book broadened my understanding of what can be done in the futures and options on futures markets. Your book and workbook are very clear, understandable, and applicable."

What is option selling or option premium selling?

When you sell an option, you receive a credit (premium paid by the buyer) to your account. If the option expires worthless, the premium is retained as profit. By selling instead of buying options, time value decay becomes your ally, not your foe. To learn more about this type of trading, register to receive John's FREE option spread trades, which he will send to you by email .

How much experience is required to trade options on futures?

A basic options understanding is all you need to begin to be able to trade options on futures. Of course, there is always substantial risk of loss trading options and futures, and trading should be conducted with risk capital only. Please be sure to read our full disclaimer.

Disclaimer: Transactions in options carry a high degree of risk. Purchasers and sellers of options should familiarize themselves with the type of option (i.e., put or call) which they contemplate trading and the associated risk. Selling ("writing" or "shorting") an option generally entails considerably greater risk than purchasing options. Although the premium received by the seller is fixed, the seller may sustain a loss well in excess of the that amount. You should calculate the extent to which the value of the options must increase for your position to become profitable, taking into account the premium and all transaction costs.
