I’ve read a few option books.
THANKS... This is probably the most comprehensive "greeks" article/book I’ve read.

Wonderful blog. …..
A wonder wealth of knowledge there. Thanks so much for your kindness in publishing it!

Thank you very much for the most concise and simplest option intro. Highly recommended.

So far, yours is the best blog/site on basic options notes in the web that I have chanced upon.

Update 1 Jun 07:
Steven of Value Blog Review has done a great job. He did a research and made comparisons of option trades’ prices for contracts in various sizes (1 contract, 10 contracts, and 50 contracts) for various discount online stock option brokers. Here is his post: Discount Online Option Stock Brokers. Very informative. I also added MB Trading and Zecco in the above list based on his info.

An excellent start to this blog, which I'm sure many will find to be an invaluable resource as they dip their toe in the options world for the first time -- or just contemplate that possibility.

Best of luck and welcome to the blogosphere,

Great blog! Your list of online brokers seems pretty extensive as well. An invaluable site that I found that actually provides concise and straight-forward reviews of the various online brokers listed above is: Online-Broker-Review.com.

Finding a broker that fits you and your trading patterns best is quite personal, use this site and others like www.online-broker-review.com to help you find the one that's best for you.
Best of wishes and happy trading!
Again, great site.

Lowtrades $4.95 trades +.60c/contract

ChoiceTrade $0 trades + .99c/contract (with $8.95 minimum)

NobleTrading $7.95 trades + $1/contract

TradingDirect $9.95 plus $1/contract

Marsco $3.95 trades + 1.25/contract

FirstTrade $6.95 trades + .75c/contract

It would be nice if you also post the rates and commissions like I just did so we can all compare them

Hey John H, your recommended review site appears to be nothing but a bunch of sponsored links. What's up with that?
