Buying and Selling Volatility by Connolly Kevin

Buying and Selling Volatility — a trading book that describes some really interesting type of trading — a volatility trading. It might be not very useful for Forex traders, because it involves the derivative trading (and it’s not very popular with Forex, spot trading is much more popular), but it will be interesting and useful to other traders and investors who don’t limit themselves to Forex only. Traditional financial trading consists of buying and selling certain instruments and closing the position when the price of the instruments reaches a desired profit level. All that such trader needs is the entry price and the exit price. The difference (positive or negative) is the trader’s profit or loss. Volatility trading offered by Connolly Kevin is different. Volatility trader buys or sells volatility through a complex system of hedged options and other derivative. The benefit of such method is that one can earn successfully on volatile markets without even paying attention to the entry and exit prices of the given instrument.

    In my opinion, this book will be great for anyone just taking the plunge into the world of trading. The author doesn’t go into too much detail for the more experienced traders. If mathematics was never your thing then you should definitely get this book but if you want to go a step ahead and actually know the finer points of trading, I would advise that you search for a better book in the market.

    To do justice to the potential of the book, the reader needs to carefully interpret the books original objectives. Though most of the reviews of the book seem to consistently point out the inability of the book to satisfy a more advanced class of readers, they all fail to see the usefulness of the book to the novice trader. My initial doubts about the quality of this book were removed by a colleague who persisted that I buy it.
    The analysis of the optional volatility and the ‘Greeks’ by Connolly is always specific and concise. (He respects the reader’s time and finishes what he can in 1 page instead of using 5). The amateur reader is taken care of as Connolly has not used any complex situation as an aid to explanation and this is why his book will appeal to a larger class of readers (academic as well as practical). The book does not aspire to be a short cut guide to guarantee immediate returns. What the book provides is a strong base and a basic foundation thereby preparing the reader to pick up a more complex piece of writing in future and interpret what it teaches in a much more effective way.
    The critics comparing this book to the books providing an in-depth analysis have failed to see what the author aims to achieve. As an introductory book, this book is probably the best in the market and not a single other book, including Baird, can match the basic teachings it provides.
