I stayed away from options, since in my personal research I concluded that due to the time deterioration nature of options and their complexities, I saw no way of trading options and winning-- ever.
While I kept losing money, I heard that my uncle was doing well in options. I couldn't believe it. I didn't believe it-- since I also heard that he didn't have a computer and lived in rural Georgia, talking only to his broker by phone and working with paper statements. I made it a point to interview my uncle, only to discover I indeed had a "rich" uncle with a "system" that worked. This "system" he merely said was "common sense"-- but after he explained it to me, the lights came on.
I then searched Amazon for books that specifically talked about the ONLY TWO options transactions my uncle traded with: money-secured puts and covered calls. I was led to this book by Dr Elias.
The first 11 Chapters are the most important-- and it is important to note that when Dr Elias is talking about calls or put transactions in these chapters, he is almost exclusively talking about money-secured puts and covered calls. There is only one place in the book where he warns you that to BUY a call or BUY a put places you in a position where you are working against the clock and that every minute, your investment is losing value. Take that warning to heart!Read more ›
Having said that, I have learned more useful trading techniques from this 3rd edition of "Generate Thousands in Cash on your Stocks before Buying or Selling Them" by Dr. Samir Elias then I have from all the other books I own. This was a fascinating book to read, and if you have experience in the turbulent trading markets of the last few years, you can not help but be captivated from page one. In fact, I read it again as soon I finished it, just to make sure that I didn't miss any key points.
He has a unique writing style that cuts through all the clutter and gets right to the heart of the matter. If you have no background in options trading prior to reading this book, you would be well advised to read up on them before reading this book. Ron Ianieri's "Options Theory & Trading" being a great place to start the journey.
The techniques Dr. Elias uses to generate option income on stocks are presented clearly. In addition to options trading, there is a wealth of information on general trading methods that is extremely valuable to any trader. I know of no other book that gives a trader such a clear road map to achieving success in the stock maket.
If I was asked to suggest one book that could help a new trader learn how to trade successfully, it would be "Generate Thousands in Cash on your Stocks before Buying or Selling Them", hands down.
Pass this one over and you will do so at your own peril.
The book does an excellent job with example after example of trades where the author trades around a core position generating thousands in profits while limiting risk by buying a stock through selling an in the money naked put, then after purchase selling covered calls when the stock reaches the top of a range and also selling more puts to buy additional shares when the stock gets to the bottom of the range. This strategy at times can remove up to 50% of the cost basis in a position in a few months. What was so amazing to me was that the strategies in the book can even work to generate profits in a stock position in a downtrend or at least greatly limit the losses.
The book wants you to profit from the fact that 75% of all options expire worthless. Some of the basic principles of the book are to buy back call options when they are worth 25% of the sell price. The idea is to lock in your profit and to repeat this process several times and not have to wait for the option to expire. Do not sell covered calls right after a steep fall in the stock price. Wait until it reaches 20% above its 20-day closing low to do that.Read more ›
