DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets


has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report

"Volatility Trading, + CD-ROM" to their offering.

The key to this volatility book for traders is its unique

positioning. It is a quantitative modeling book for options traders. No

Scholes equation in order to profitably trade; volatility measurement

and forecasting to compare the volatility of the market vs. traders

understanding of implied volatility dynamics to help traders hone their

timing and execution; trade sizing information to show traders how

different choices can dramatically affect their returns; measuring

results through a number of trade evaluation techniques other than just

profit/loss; and the psychological issues facing traders, from novice to

experienced pro. Finally, the CD-ROM offers traders valuable

spreadsheets that include calculating volatility cones for different

time periods with easy data downloads from Yahoo!

In Volatility Trading, Sinclair offers you a quantitative model for

measuring volatility in order to gain an edge in your everyday option

trading endeavors. With an accessible, straightforward approach. He

guides traders through the basics of option pricing, volatility

measurement, hedging, money management, and trade evaluation. In

addition, Sinclair explains the often-overlooked psychological aspects

of trading, revealing both how behavioral psychology can create market

conditions traders can take advantage of-and how it can lead them

astray. Psychological biases, he asserts, are probably the drivers

behind most sources of edge available to a volatility trader.
