Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You buy a low volatility put, sell a higher volatility call, and you delta hedge thinking that you will, for sure, make money from the IV differential. Isn’t that the “best trade in the world”? If you think so, as I did, then this book will show you in an incredibly clear way why you are wrong. Even if you already know that this isn’t the best trade in the world, you will absolutely benefit from similar thought provoking and challenging questions throughout the book. When dealing with derivatives, often one focuses too much on the theory and mathematical formulas and forgets about the practical and intuitive ways of dealing with market realities. This book is really unique in that it isn’t another book that re-hashes the same stuff you already saw a million times before. This is a book that will build your intuition, reinforce the stuff that you already know, and corrects the misconception that you have. I especially liked the author’s conversational style, benefiting from his teaching experience, while gaining tremendous insight from his trading experience also. This is, in my mind, the ultimate combination of academic and market knowledge that any person can benefit from. The material is very accessible and doesn’t get into the intimidating math that scares lots of people. This book is truly exceptional.
