Complete Guide to Spread Trading

by Keith Schap

in Books / Risk Management, Trading

Many active individual traders don't do what the professionals do: spread trading. Spread trading involves the buying of a contract in one market and the selling of another contract in a different market n an attempt to capitalize on shifts in the relationship between markets. The pros prefer spread trading because they create additional opportunities to be right, they allow for margin breaks that give each trade more leverage, and they make for a consistent flow of positie returns. Traders who really want to have any longevity in the trading srena need to learn to trade spreads.

T2W Edit: please note that this book is about a specific trading technique which has nothing to do with spread betting!

good intro to the general concepts

doesnt go into specifics about short term spreading, more focused on longer term & cyclical spread relationships but still a good book on some of the basics
