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

astray. Psychological biases, he asserts, are probably the drivers
behind most sources of edge available to a volatility trader.
