options futures and other derivatives book
Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives is written by John C. Hull. John is a professor of Derivatives and Risk Management at the Rotham School of Management at the University of Toronto. John is also the author of Fundamentals of Futures and Options, Risk Management and Financial Institutions and other popular derivative related material.

Below is my review of Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives...

It's a must

Options, Futures and Other Derivatives is a must for anyone seeking to seriously study derivative markets. The publication is written in the style of a text book (no surprise seeing that the author is a university professor) and contains many illustrations, headings and published content that helps the reader understand what is being taught. The topics in this publication can be hard to understand, the publication does better than most others at explaining to the novice.

It covers everything

You will find no other publication that is so comprehensive. Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives contains whole sections on Futures, Futures for Hedging, Forward Contracts, Swaps, Interest Rate Futures, Options, Stock Options, Trading Strategies for Options, Currency and Stock Index Options, Risk Management, Exotic Options and other material. The book offers everything you need to know for a general and basic understanding of the titled financial products.


If you are looking to trade Forex or stocks, this book will probably not be for you. If you are seeking to trade Options and/or Futures or wanting to gain a clear understanding of those markets, then this book is for you. You will find no other text that provides greater insight and teaches with as much clarity. I highly recommend Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives.

The Complete Investment Banking Course - Trading Course Review

The Complete Investment Banking Course is not a trading course.

The reason why I wanted to take and review this course is that many financial traders have an active interest in investment banking and their role within equity, debt and other financial markets.
