Basic Options EBook Free Today

Just wanted to note that I am taking advantage of an Amazon.com promotion that allows me to make my basic options eBook free for a specified period. The promo runs until 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time, Friday night.

I am doing this for several reasons. At the top of the list - I think it will help people get a better handle on what to expect from the options newsletter I am doing with Robert Weinstein. We give you a good bit of color on that at the sign-up page, with a sample, preview of what's to come, subscriber feedback and more. But I think the book really helps the reader understand my approach to options for long-term investors. I know several folks have purchased the book and, after reading it, decided to sign up for the newsletter.

The book covers the most bare-bones basic options topics that long-term investors need to know to start using options conservatively and successfully. The newsletter covers and expands on much of what is in the book. The basics will always be at the heart of the newsletter, however it offers plenty more, including discussion of more advanced strategies, money and risk management as well as model portfolios of stocks and ETFs, long- and short-term speculative plays, covered call ideas and dividend captures from Bob.

Again, I think the book provides a nice, tidy introduction to what to expect from the newsletter.

Here's the link at Amazon to get the book. By the way, you do not need a Kindle... just follow Amazon's instructions for downloading the proper app for your device if you do not have a Kindle.
