Review:

'I hate books that promise quick riches, and I worry about the late-night TV ads that are enticing naive people into trading futures, currencies and commodities. All of these devices can be useful in experienced hands, but if you see a novice getting sucked into the hype, give them a book such as "Commodities for Dummies" or "Futures and Options for Dummies."' Gail MarksJarvis, Chicago Tribune

This author has explained concepts and strategies which I have used to make money. One trade, 100% return in one month, another 40% in two days!

This is the reason I read this book, to make money. No one should try to make money in options based on simple formulas. One must have a deeper understanding of how things work. Duarte has a firm grasp on this concept and ably communicates to his reader.

Particularly helpful is the section on recognizing trends and getting ahead of the curve. His 'Developing Strategies' does help the careful reader avoid pain in the market. Also helpful are his ten killer rules.

Futures and options trading isn't for the faint of heart. Useful information contained in this book offers information needed to have confidence in developing a trading plan that you understand and can make work. This is very useful indeed.

A very credible tome on a subject written with obvious insight and judgment that can only come with experience.
