In this book, a hedge fund manager and an option trading coach show you how to earn steady, reliable option income trading options by managing your trades and running your option portfolio as a real business following the fundamental principles of an insurance company. Mark Sebastian (TheStreet.com, OptionPit.com) and hedge fund manager Dennis Chen (Smart Income Partners, Ltd.) explain why this particular business model offers such an attractive practical model for individual traders, and teaches the specific how tos you need to create and operate your personal option income portfolio this way. Sebastian and Chen begin by introducing their exclusive business model framework, identifying the option concepts most critical to long-term trading success, and presenting core income strategies based on selling rather than purchasing options. Next, they walk you through setting up your business, offering a complete operations manual addressing each practical issue you'll face. The authors teach key lessons they've learned from their own experience -- including how to maintain trading discipline, manage volatility and risk, account for the other Greeks, and handle payments. Packed with real-world examples, this book reveals how professional money managers and hedge funds really manage their option trading operations -- and guides you step-by-step through setting up your portfolio and running your trades to earn the same high levels of income.
