Investors worldwide are discovering the enormous opportunities available through commodity options trading. However, because commodities have differing underlying characteristics from equities, commodity options behave differently as well. In this book, two of the field's most respected analysts present strategies built from the ground up for commodity options. Carley Garner and Paul Brittain begin with a quick primer on how commodity options work, how they evolved, and why conventional options strategies often fail in the commodity options markets. Next, using detailed examples based on their own extensive research, they show how to leverage the unique characteristics of commodity options in your own trades. You'll walk through trades from 'top to bottom,' master both long- and short-option approaches, and learn powerful strategies usually ignored in options books. For example, the authors introduce synthetic swing trading strategies that systematically remove volatility from the market.* Why commodity options are different--and what it means to you Understand key differences in the underlying assets and the logistics of market execution* Systematically rewrite the odds in your favor Four ways to make winning trades more likely--and losing trades less common* When to trade short options--and how to manage the risk Why careful option selling can improve your odds of success *Master strategies designed for diverse market conditions Combine long and short options to create the right strategy for any market opportunity* Exploit short-lived trends through 'synthetic' swing trading Get the advantages of futures contracts without the volatility* Limit your risk and widen your 'profit playground' Use 'iron butterflies' to profit in sideways markets
