Any additional comments?

I knew nothing about options trading, or even what options were when I started this guide. I now feel comfortable discussing them and even participating in options trading.

Where does Options Trading: QuickStart Guide rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is an excellent "basic training" on options trading! This audiobook will teach you what an "option" is, along with how options are different from stocks (i.e. stocks give you a small piece of ownership in a company, while options are contracts that give you the right to buy or sell the stock at a specific price by a specific date), This audiobook does a good job helping novices understand how to buy and sell options, and how to get started in a way that minimizes financial risk. The concepts in this audiobook are explained clearly and in easy-to-understand language-and an accompanying PDF will help the listener to further their understanding of the material.

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
