Summary "In Trading Options to Win: Profitable Strategies and Tactics for Any Trader, S.A. (Stu) Johnston shares thirty years of trading experience to help improve your trading profitability in the options and futures markets. Unlike some books, which offer a single "sure-fire" system for turning a profit, Trading Options to Win examines a broad methodology of trading that puts the likelihood of profits on your side of the table." "Through thoughtful insights and detailed examples of actual and hypothetical trades, Johnston illustrates disciplined methods for selecting strategies to use and trades to enter, tactics to maintain your advantage once you've entered a trade, and organized methods that allow you to protect your capital when a trade doesn't initially work in your favor."--BOOK JACKET
