A Derivatives Primer: Options, Futures, and Structures

Book Description

We hear a lot about derivatives, but the general public and even many professional traders aren’t quite sure what they are or how they impact our lives. While they have caused a tremendous increase in overall volatility, when used properly derivatives afford tremendous financial flexibility . In this presentation the author, John Succo, helps you acquire a basic understanding of derivatives by breaking the market into three basic product groups and providing a clear primer on each: 1) Options , 2) Futures, and 3) Structures (cash instruments with imbedded options).
