Re: Those that trade options. Can you recommend the best books on options trading...

If you want an all inclusive, almost every options trade you can make with examples, I recommend this one:


However, it does not go over strategies, just straight up 'here's all the options trades you can make and with examples'. It briefly explains the greeks of options. Overall I use it more as a reference for examples rather than to plan a specific strategy.

As you know I'm an option seller. I really liked this book on writing puts (and it's a cheap book):


I also currently own this book on writing covered calls, but it's not worth the price, IMO:


Try this website first though, very good on explaining some basics as well as strategies for covered calls and even writing puts (plus it's free - gotta love the internet):


As far as option strategies for going long, I can't help you much there. However, the first options book I ever read was this one:


Very straight forward, very cheap, but again, most of the info in this book can be found online.

Curious about writing options? Come join me...
