Option trading is one of the greatest games on earth! You can be a two-dollar investor, betting on the action of stocks, the markets, futures and/or commodities, or you can be the casino or a legalized bookie, taking the bets instead of making the bets. You pick the role and have the fun and profit. With options, gains of over 1000% are not unusual, and you can design strategies that will win up to 90% of the time.
Perhaps the most interesting, and potentially profitable, tool in futures trading is the spread. Yet in spite of its potential and validity as a trading method, it is not understood by most traders and therefore not generally employed by the trading public. On the other hand, professional traders in the futures and options markets use spreads frequently as vehicles to profitable trading.

In an age of uncertainty, peering 15 years into the future may seem like hubris. But ignoring long-term
trends—demographic, economic, corporate—is an even less attractive option. Understanding the long-term future is vital in ensuring that strategies are sustainable, that opportunities are identified at an early stage and that challenges are addressed beforethey become insurmountable.

Chapter 23 Derivatives and Risk Management
a. A derivative is an indirect claim security that derives its value, in whole or in part, by the market price (or interest rate) of some other security (or market). Derivatives include options, interest rate futures, exchange rate futures, commodity futures, and swaps.
In the early 1980s, as the editor-in-chief of Commodities magazine,
I was privy to a number of different trading ideas and techniques—
so many, in fact, it was difficult to determine which was
best or sometimes which had merit. This was during the heyday of
innovations in the futures markets with the introduction of the cashsettlement
concept in eurodollar futures, futures on broad-based stock
indexes, crude oil futures, the pilot program for options on futures, and
a number of other new contracts in areas where futures and options
did not exist before.

You cannot predict the future or control the present—these are prime directives
governing the creation and use of options.
This text takes the mystery out of predicting and profiting from the future price
trends of stocks and futures contracts using fundamental and/or technical analysis
along with option strategies that manage the associated risk. Savvy market operators
have devised methods of attacking the markets aggressively, while protecting
themselves from the daily risk of loss.
It was in late 1995 to early 1996 (shortly after the birth of his first daughter Claire)
that the author first began to read the currently available finance books in order to
write C/Cþþ financial software. However, apart fromthe book Options Futures and
Other Derivatives by John Hull, he found very little information of practical help and
had to trawl through the original journal articles in the Bodleian library for more
information. Even then much information on how to implement and test various
models was not included.
Capital markets are becoming global markets and commercial real estate markets are no
exception. Recently, international real estate investors have expressed interest in investing in
the Asian emerging markets. Three main reasons can be given for investing in such markets.
