Carley Garner has authored the following futures trading books:
Trading Commodity Options...with Creativity
Many books have been written on options trading, but most focus on the academic side of options suggesting there are black and white answers and reliable mathematical formulas to determine profit and loss. Yet, options traders must be ready and willing to deal in gray areas, approximations, and guesswork. Trading Commodity Options…with Creativity bridges the gap between traditional options trading literature and real-life trading examples. Through tough-learned lessons, this book tackles the nearly impossible task of streamlining the process of developing an appropriate options strategy for any market environment and risk tolerance, then making the necessary mid-trade adjustments to improve the odds of success.
Higher Probability Commodity Trading
A comprehensive guide to commodity market analysis, futures and options trading strategy development, and risk management; Higher Probability Commodity Trading takes readers on an unprecedented journey through the treacherous commodity markets; shedding light on topics rarely discussed in trading literature from a unique perspective, with the intention of increasing the odds of success for market participants.
A Trader's First Book on Commodities
A ground-level approach to commodity futures and options trading, covering topics ranging from calculating profit, loss, and risk in commodities trading through choosing the proper futures broker. It also highlights the process of choosing a futures trading platform, obtaining the best commodity brokerage service level, as well as peripheral topics such as constructing a futures and options trading plan, handling commodity margin calls, and maintaining emotional stability.
A rare book with a focus on options on futures, not stock options. Although calls and puts are mechanically the same for equity traders and commodity traders, there are vast differences between the trading arenas that should be recognized. Commodity Options takes readers on a journey through several option trading strategies, including option spreads such as the butterfly, condor, and synthetic calls and puts.
Currency Trading in the FOREX and Futures Markets
There are plenty of books promising "easy" money in the FX markets, but this isn't one of those books. Instead, Currency Trading in the FOREX and Futures Markets provide a candid description of the FOREX markets, including the fact that most FX market participants are trading against their own brokerage firm. In Currency Trading, Garner suggests currency speculation might be best done in the currency futures markets listed on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Here traders have the luxury of transparent, centralized, and well-regulated markets, as well as better protection of their margin funds on deposit.
