“Augen’s book breaks new ground with an indispensable and unique approach to evaluating option prices in different time frames. It also presents a new charting technique for evaluating very short-term trends lasting just a few minutes–a valuable technique for anyone who follows intraday markets. The statistical analysis and associated discussions around high-frequency trading are especially relevant in the modern financial world, which has come to be dominated by supercomputers and algorithmic trading. No serious stock or option trader should be without this book.”

--Sean Sztern, Alternative Strategies Group, Desjardins Securities, Montreal, Quebec

“Jeff Augen’s work on day trading options pulls the curtain back and reveals insights from the world of very short-term options trading. In doing so, he reveals insights beneficial even for the longer-term option trader. Specifically, Chapter 3 on trading volatility distortions introduces the idea of 3-D implied volatility surfaces. Far from being too advanced, this chapter addresses complex volatility issues in plain English that every option trader can understand. I wholly recommend this book.”

Minimize Your Exposure to Market Risk and Increase Profits by Trading in Very Brief Time Frames

In today’s turbulent markets, traditional trading strategies have failed to provide protection from the rapid and violent changes that have swung the Dow down 330 points one day, up 280 points the next, and down 250 points at the open on the next. Fundamental analysis based on company performance and financial predictions has proven meaningless. Technical traders must now compete with institutional trading programs utilizing supercomputers that analyze and execute trades in millisecond time frames. So, how can a private investor compete in this environment?

In Day Trading Options, expert option trader Jeff Augen shows you how to continue to profit even in these chaotic times. You’ll learn to structure short-term trades that exploit well characterized price distortions and anomalies. You’ll discover a breakthrough technique for utilizing volatility to identify the beginning and end of short-lived trends. And, you’ll gain the knowledge to use this innovative technique to take advantage of financial news and planned events, rather than being at their mercy.

Abandon outdated trading strategies and conventional “wisdom” Minimize your exposure to market risk and increase your profits by trading in very brief time frames and structuring positions that are direction neutral Understand why your once-reliable technical analysis and charting techniques are failing Explore new statistical evidence to discern how new advances in institutional program trading affect the private investor Discover new models for analyzing volatility in different time frames Learn to evaluate option prices by comparing overnight, intraday, and traditional measures of volatility Learn to identify and exploit short-lived volatility changes Use a newly defined charting technique to correctly time trades by identifying the beginning and end of short-term trends

Undeniably, this is the most densest book in a series of books by Augen that includes Trading Options at Expiration: Strategies and Models for Winning the Endgameand The Volatility Edge in Options Trading: New Technical Strategies for Investing in Unstable Markets and a workbook. This book is also perhaps the most targeted one and is unlikely to appeal to a broader audience.

The book in itself is fairly short (written with the gravity similar to academic journals) and has five chapters. The first chapter, though called "basic concepts" really sets the tone for the book and makes it evident that the intended audience is experienced day traders (true to the book title's implication). The chapter provides a very informed analysis of how options market (pricing) has changed in the recent crises, with specific focus on implied volatility swings and volatility skews across strike prices. The second chapter discusses automated trading and emerging trends in that field. Unless the reader uses sophisticated trading systems and is very familiar with programmed trading, the chapter is not likely to sustain significant interest, but the reader is well-advised to force yourself through the chapter. Using various detailed examples, Augen demonstrates the role of statistical analyses in trend exploitation, issues of "over fitting" indicators and volatility distortions. The third chapter (forming bulk of the book) deals with volatility distortions and how to trade them. The discussion is however based on 3-dimensional maps (implied volatility, calendar information and price) and is not really clear how accessible such tools are. Using various examples, Augen demonstrates approaches involving selling time decay and backspreads. The fourth chapter introduces a new charting tool with the premise that the principal goal of an option trader is to "arbitrage differences between implied and fair volatilities". Accessibility of the tools required and even suitability of these methods for the most aggressive casual trader (once whose primary job is not trading) is not clear here either. In the last chapter (perhaps, a neat set up for the next book?) Augen discusses special events focusing on only two - long weekends and associated price distortions and events surrounding markets "digesting" large amounts of news.

Overall, the book does absolute justice to its title - it is indeed targeting distortions for "very brief" (read minutes, mostly) and is fairly dense even for the experienced option trader. After having read all the books from the author in this field, the book on trading options near expiration was a far useful one for a broader audience in at least highlighting significant mechanics associated with expiration pricing dynamics and potential trade constructs. This book, Augen's dedicated focus on day trading, doesn't even pretend to be suitable for anyone but a niche audience. Augen does provide some interesting insights that will benefit any serious options trader, but this time, the book is perhaps a little too far out except for the very experienced and fanatic fans of Augen.

"Day Trading Options-Profiting From Price Distortion in Very Brief Time Frames" is not an easy read. Author Jeff Augen takes the reader through a very detailed analysis of option pricing, and some of the anomalies that occur. Early on he debunks the theory of trend analysis and charting, proving over many varied time frames and specific stocks, even using a random number generated analysis, clearly displaying that what happened a minute ago has no bearing on what will happen this minute, and this minute in trading has no bearing on the next.

He clearly explains the age of super computers completeing millions of calculations per second to find minute anomalies in the myriad market places, and instantly trading on these disparities, faster than the average trader could even discover them, never mind attempting to make a trade with our PC.

But wait, there's more. In the later chapters he delves deeply into the statistical side of option trading, including standard deviations, implied volitility, and other areas of deep mathematical analysis.

This book is not an easy read, and even though I am basically familiar with statistical analysis and measuring deviations, there were times, even after reading and re-reading a section several times, I just had to move on. If I had a major concern, it would be the charts and tables do not explain what they are trying to demonstrate clearly enough. The author takes a lot for granted when it comes to a readers ability to decipher the point he is trying to make. If the salient points were highlighted, this would be a significant improvement.

Overall, this is a very challenging book, and in my opinion written at a level for the sophisticated option trader. I would not recommend this book to the beginner or even average option trader. But if one is attempting to grow beyond even the above average option trader, and is working to learn all he/she can about trading, then this book belongs in their library.

Options are not easy at all. Wisely the author does not make it easy either, and the book gives some hard time to a reader. Instead of simple strategies and directional guesswork in turbulent markets the author proposes serious work based on mathematics and deep understanding the subject. The book argues for solid systemic risk/reward calculations, experimentation, model fine tuning and your own efforts. The book also gives crucial background information on price dynamics in current markets and warns about numerous pitfalls and common oversimplifications.

Using some mathematics and spreadsheet programming you can get test models and simulations working to begin with. The book leaves the final work to the readers because in the market the investor and trader oneself must be responsible. It does not make it easy for novices but author's earlier books follow the same pattern of thinking and they are of great help on the way. Especially clearly we can learn how to approach the central and difficult factor of implied volatility. You have to invest your time to get into this multidimensional problematic. The book is about very brief time frames which may cut down the interested audience but the same models work in any time frame. The book is an important contribution to investor community and it is a must reading for anybody serious about stocks or options.
