Britains favorite steeplejack and business enthusiastic, the overdue Fred Dibnah, takes us again to the 18th century while the discovery of the steam engine gave a tremendous impetus to the improvement of equipment of every kind. He unearths how the steam engine supplied the 1st useful technique of producing energy from warmth to enhance the previous assets of energy (from muscle, wind and water) and supplied the most resource of strength for the commercial Revolution. In Fred Dibnahs Age of Steam Fred stocks his ardour for steam and meets a number of the characters who dedicate their lives to discovering, retaining and restoring steam locomotives, traction engines and desk bound engines, mill workings and pumps. mixed with this may be the tales of imperative figures of the time, together with James Watts - inventor of the steam engine - and Richard Trevithick who performed a key function within the growth of business Britain within the 18th and nineteenth centuries.

Buying one option at a lower volatility level and selling another option that has a higher volatility level is what’s called getting the “volatility edge” on your trades. Even though buying the spread will still cost you money, your total outlay is less than what it could be. You could outright just sell short the shares and see what happens. But this is an extremely risky venture because, as we’ve seen with GOOG, the shares could pop on you and put you in a horrible short squeeze. That’s why you are an astute investor and opt to go for the limited-risk appeal of options trading.

That point is whatever you paid for the stock plus commission. You can wait years if you like, or pass the stock down to your heirs if you wish. Stock options and commodity options are not like that. They all have a finite date of existence. If the stock or commodity price does not get above your breakeven by option expiration, you will lose money. That’s what I’m going to show you how to do. Before we can get into learning how to maximize our chances of winning, I want to reiterate what I said in a previous chapter about the relationship between the strike price of the option and the current price of the stock or commodity.

Those numbers represent, in percentage terms, how the actual bid and ask prices of the options measure up in volatility terms. 75. 78 percent. As you’re seeing on a comparison basis, the higher the volatility figure, the higher the option price will be. ISE’s options have higher volatility numbers than BUD’s; thus, the options are more expensive. This is not to say that ISE’s options are overpriced compared to BUD’s. qxd 12/1/06 8:34 AM Page 36 36 THE OPTION BASICS more volatility going forward.
