TRADE OPTIONS LIKE A SEASONED PRO! A Trading-Floor Veteran Shares his Secrets qWhat I like about Dan's book is that it's obvious he isn't just telling you how to trade, he's telling you how he trades. There's always a big difference between those who teach trading from an academic standpoint and those who have traded and have the ability to walk investors step by step through the trade. For my money, I always seek advice and counsel from those that walk the walk and Dan Passarelli has walked the walk.q Jon Najarian, cofounder Trademonster.com On Dan Passarellias first day as a clerk on the exchange floor, he spent the morning observing, practicing his hand signals, and running errands. Around midday, the veteran clerk he worked with said to him, aYouare up. Iam going to lunch.a Dan survived his trial by fire and went on to spend many years on the trading fl oor. He credits his success as a trader and educator to the hands-on experience he gained throughout his career. With The Market Takeras Edge, Passarelli shares the knowledge and insights other floor traders keep tight to their chestsathe knowledge you need to beat the market on a regular basis. This market maker turned market taker delivers a focused commentary on key concepts for operating in the options exchange like a pro.
