Nowadays, many investors' portfolios include investments such as mutual funds, stocks and bonds. But the variety of securities you have at your disposal does not end there. Another type of security, called an option, presents a world of opportunity to sophisticated investors. The power of options lies in their versatility. They enable you to adapt or adjust your position according to any situation that arises. Options can be as speculative or as conservative as you want. This means you can do everything from protecting a position from a decline to outright betting on the movement of a market or index. This versatility, however, does not come without its costs. Options are complex securities and can be extremely risky. This is why, when trading options, you'll see a disclaimer like the following: Options involve risks and are not suitable for everyone. Option trading can be speculative in nature and carry substantial risk of loss. Only invest with risk capital. Despite what anybody tells you, option trading involves risk, especially if you don't know what you are doing. Because of this, many people suggest you steer clear of options and forget their existence. On the other hand, being ignorant of any type of investment places you in a weak position. Perhaps the speculative nature of options doesn't fit your style. No problem - then don't speculate in options. But, before you decide not to invest in options, you should understand them. Not learning how options function is as dangerous as jumping right in: without knowing about options you would not only forfeit having another item in your investing toolbox but also lose insight into the workings of some of the world's largest corporations. Whether it is to hedge the risk of foreign-exchange transactions or to give employees ownership in the form of stock options, most multi-nationals today use options in some form or another. This book will introduce you to the fundamentals of options. Keep in mind that most options traders have many years of experience, so don't expect to be an expert immediately after reading this book .

Most people I meet tend to either think the Stock Market is complex and difficult or that it is easy to make money on the Stock Market. I fell into the category of thinking the Stock Market was easy but I soon found out that there are rules to trading and if applied correctly, could lead to profitable trading and investing.
I have since taught people how to trade and invest wisely and dispel the many myths surrounding the Stock Market.
This book on Stock Trading & Investing for Beginners has been published to give the reader an essential foundation as they venture into the exciting world of Trading & Investing.
The information presented within is mainly based off other writings. The author has taken this information and expanded his own perspectives and experiences in a way for others to easily understand. A glossary is added with definitions to ideas to help with reading. The books summarized are books that the author needed to read for classes while attending college. The interesting part is how someone that has lived in Canada, America, and China explains his non-traditional views with such ease. The author is not coming from one specific cultural perspective, but rather an out-of-the-box view on all aspects that incorporate travel, money, and duty. Without any barriers on his thoughts, the author takes the reader for a ride through emotional and insightful adventures. Without needed to take too much time, the book easily makes information available and easy to pick up. In order to encompass all the experiences and essays written by the author, the other six parts to the collection will be made available soon. Keep in touch and thank you.
This book is based on A Trading Desk s View of Market Quality, a conference hosted by the Zicklin School of Business on April 30, 2002. The text includes the edited transcripts of each panel as well as separate presentations by two distinguished industry officials, Joel Steinmetz, who at the time was Senior Vice President, Equities, Instinet Corporation, and Laura Unger, formerly Acting Chairperson and Commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. This book is not simply a historical record of the conference. It is also an exposition of the complex issues raised by the industry experts and speakers in attendance. Therefore, we introduced new material from foll- up interviews with many of the panelists so that the final result would be a more valuable document. Our intention was to examine the discussions with a critical eye, then modify or expand various sections to reflect contemporary conditions. In addition, we have included a paper by Ozenbas, Schwartz and Wood (see Chapter 8, page 151) that provides further analysis on the connection between market quality and intra-day 1 volatility that was noted several times during the conference. During the production process, we worked with the panelists, and took pains not to put words in their mouths. They have all approved the final draft of the manuscript, and we thank them for their assistance and patience."
