In practicing Nikkei 225 option trading, we will carefully pick up the books that have been studied. Many have been published 10 to 20 years ago, but they still do not fade away. I will update it from time to time.

1. Option Volatility Trade Introduction (Sheldon Natenberg)

A must-read book that should be kept at hand with top priority. I will use this book for the rest of my life. We implemented it in “smile catcher” with reference to the formula of P553 ~, “Smile curve excluding temporal influence” P637 ~ as familiar in “Elemon report” as well.

2. Option – its basics and trading strategy (optional vocational school affiliated with the Chicago Option Exchange)

It was a miracle of option world that this book was translated into Japanese. It is a super-essential book to read over and over again and again. Because it is out-of-print, it has a second-hand premier. But wisdom and knowledge obtained from here can never be turned into money. This is what “a lifetime” is. It is recommended as much.

Currency option transactions are somewhat different from index option transactions, but it is a must-see for professional option dealing method based on on-site feeling and market trends. Because it is out-of-print it has a premier, but it should be able to get its original.
