The Option Trader's Hedge Fund: A Business Framework for Trading Equity and Index Options

The Option Trader's Hedge Fund: A Business Framework for Trading Equity and Index Options Mark Sebastian from OptionPit has published a book on options trading.  With the amount of energy he has put into establishing his own trading company, publishing articles for the likes of Expiring Monthly, and elbowing his way into the mainstream financial media, it was only a matter of time that we saw him explore yet another venue. The Option Trader's Hedge Fund: A Business Framework for Trading Equity and Index Optionsis the newest book on options trading to "almost" hit the shelves.  I say "almost" because it is actually in pre-order right now.  Last night I pre-ordered my copy in part to support Mark, but I am also genuinely interested in reading what he has to say.

So, what is this book all about? The truth is that I don't entirely know.  I am standing in line waiting for its release just as everyone else.  Nonetheless, we might gain some insight from the on-line description...

In this book, a hedge fund manager and an option trading coach show you how to earn steady, reliable income selling options by managing your option trades and running your option portfolio as a real business with consistent, steady returns. Packed with real-world examples, the authors show you how to manage your own “one man” hedge fund and make consistent profits from selling options by applying the basic framework and fundamental business model and principles of an “insurance company”. This framework helps you to apply your option trading strategy to a solid, predictable, business model with consistent returns. For someone who has some knowledge of trading options and wants to become a consistent income earner. The authors provide a complete “operations manual” for setting up your business. Gain pearls of wisdom from both a professional options trader and coach, and from a hedge fund manager focused on managing an options based portfolio.

In any event, I hope you will join me in ordering a copy.  Once I do receive mine I will sit down in earnest and give it a read through.  I'm looking forward to it, in fact. Meanwhile, I'll see what I can do to convince Mark to provide us a bit more insight.
