There is uncertainty in the markets due to China collapse like '07 in US. Price of Crude is heading up at the worst possible time. The GBP is making new lows. Interest rates are heading higher and the S&P looks weak and tired...
That's causing headaches and uncertainty for investors. Fear & loss of equity. Selling at the wrong time. Not selling soon enough.
Saliba is no stranger to doing these assessments - he's been trading options and assessing his risk in a daily breakdown since 1979.
"There are two things really that I love about options that you can't get with any other asset class. The first is that I can always define my worst day since I know the Max Loss immediately. The second is that these structures give a trader the ability to change color like a chameleon as far as risk posture is concerned."
Saliba has this all spelled out in his new book Managing Expectations his newest book in 10 years. It's just good timing for traders and investors to learn about options.
