I hope everyone had a great 2015 and I wish everyone the best in 2016. With the New Year, I'm already knocking off the "low hanging fruit" on my New Year's resolutions list... The first resolution crossed off the list was to finally post up my rudimentary "options resources" page, with articles that I felt would be beneficial to new options traders. That page can be found at the top of my blog labeled "Options Resources". It's by no means comprehensive, but provides some solid information to the beginning options trader that hopefully answers some questions the beginning trader may have.
I'm also in the midst of a full revamp of my options spreadsheets, as I kept running into issues within Google Sheets not importing complete data sets (though that could be an issue with my source information, not Sheets). Prior to sheets I was using LibreOffice, and before that I was using OpenOffice. Now I'm using Excel which I haven't used since college. VBA coding within Excel is giving me flashbacks to my comp sci classes in high school. A necessary evil, but looking forward to when I have everything up and running.
Without further ado, here's my options toast to the New Year: May implied volatilities be priced low and let realized volatilities run high!
