I had an email the other day asking me to point the writer in the direction of some solid options trading education, and potentially a mentor. Now, I can hold my own in most options discussions from a knowledge perspective, but I don’t have anywhere near the experience of folks out there with decades trading options in various fashions. The person who falls into that latter category that comes first to mind is Mark Wolfinger, who is a contributor to my Trading FAQs book.
Mark authors a website and blog called Options for Rookies. He’s written a couple of books on options trading and his experience in the markets. He’s also part of the team at Expiring Monthly: The Option Traders Journal. He knows his stuff and is very willing to share the knowledge and experience he’s picked up along the way. That’s why I asked him to take part in the FAQ project.
If you’re looking at learning about options and/or getting started in that market, Mark is a good place to begin.
