The book is divided into three parts; technical analysis, sentiment analysis, and machine learning. The reader, depending on her preferences may decide to begin reading at any point in the book.What is the bias of this book?This book is neutral. It does not favor any type of analysis over the others and believes in the usefulness of them all. Not only that, but we encourage using a mix of strategies to create a strong and healthy trading system.What level of knowledge do I need to follow this book?Although a basic or a good understanding of trading and the economy is considered very helpful, it is not absolutely necessary, as every part will begin by an introduction to what we will be discussing and to the basics of the field. Also, the last chapter includes an introduction to fundamental measures that will help refresh any knowledge about the economy.How is this book written?The language used is very friendly and will not feature any complex mathematical formulas. Intuition and understanding are the main focus and many chapters are not very quantitative, therefore, no troubles should be encountered while reading through the chapters. Some statistical formulas may be presented but in a straight-forward way.What about the trading results presented in some chapters?All back-testing results have been conducted on out-of-sample data exclusively. They are presented as gross returns unless instructed otherwise. The reader is encouraged to experiment with them, as the field of data and analysis is immense and countless ways of strategizing exist.What will I need to be able to replicate and use these strategies?For the technical strategies, you will only need a trading software that has the basic packages. For the sentiment strategies, you will most likely be using a spreadsheet. As for the machine learning topics, you might need to install a Python interpreter in order to enjoy the full experience.

Advanced Option Pricing Models details specific conditions under which current option pricing models fail to provide accurate price estimates and then shows option traders how to construct improved models for better pricing in a wider range of market conditions. Model-building steps cover options pricing under conditional or marginal distributions, using polynomial approximations and “curve fitting,” and compensating for mean reversion. The authors also develop effective prototype models that can be put to immediate use, with real-time examples of the models in action.

Comprehensive coverage of the four major trading styles Evolution of a Trader explores the four trading styles that people use when learning to trade or invest in the stock market. Often, beginners enter the stock market by: Buying and holding onto a stock (value investing). That works well until the trend ends or a bear market begins. Then they try Position trading. This is the same as buy-and-hold, except the technique sells positions before a significant trend change occurs. Swing trading follows when traders increase their frequency of trading, trying to catch the short-term up and down swings. Finally, people try Day trading by completing their trades in a single day. This series provides comprehensive coverage of the four trading styles by offering numerous tips, sharing discoveries, and discussing specific trading setups to help you become a successful trader or investor as you journey through each style. Trading Basics takes an in-depth look at money management, stops, support and resistance, and offers dozens of tips every trader should know. Fundamental Analysis and Position Trading discusses when to sell a buy-and-hold position, uncovers which fundamentals work best, and uses them to find stocks that become 10-baggers—stocks that climb by 10 times their original value. Swing and Day Trading reveals methods to time the market swings, including specific trading setups, but it covers the basics as well, such as setting up a home trading office and how much money you can make day trading.

The first and only book of its kind, Automated Options Trading describes a comprehensive, step-by-step process for creating automated options trading systems. Using the authors’ techniques, sophisticated traders can create powerful frameworks for the consistent, disciplined realization of well-defined, formalized, and carefully-tested trading strategies based on their specific requirements. Unlike other books on automated trading, this book focuses specifically on the unique requirements of options, reflecting philosophy, logic, quantitative tools, and valuation procedures that are completely different from those used in conventional automated trading algorithms. Every facet of the authors’ approach is optimized for options, including strategy development and optimization; capital allocation; risk management; performance measurement; back-testing and walk-forward analysis; and trade execution. The authors’ system reflects a continuous process of valuation, structuring and long-term management of investment portfolios (not just individual instruments), introducing systematic approaches for handling portfolios containing option combinations related to different underlying assets. With these techniques, it is finally possible to effectively automate options trading at the portfolio level. This book will be an indispensable resource for serious options traders working individually, in hedge funds, or in other institutions.

We use CUSUM [1] procedure to analyze trading the line strategy [2]. Closed form expressions concerning probabilistic characteristics of the CUSUM stopping time and stopped process were obtained in discrete time setting for a wide class of processes. This class of discrete processes was recently defined by K.M. Khan and R.A. Khan [3]. In continuous time, the CUSUM procedure applied to the processes driven by a particular stochastic differential equation was studied [6]. As a result the joint Laplace transform of the maximum process and CUSUM stopping time was derived. Finally, the trading the line strategy was studied for the process driven by the fractional Brownian motion. As in regular Brownian motion case, the Laplace transform was linked to the partial differential equation. Although the lack of optional sampling theorem in this case prevents us from getting a closed form expression, the structure of the Laplace transform is derived. By using these results we point some of the subtle features of the trading the line strategy [7].
