Because spread trades have a basis in the economics of the markets involved and employ a structure designed to respond to those economic drivers, they have become popular with professional traders of all types. "The Complete Guide to Spread Trading" introduces you to the profitable benefits of spreads and walks you through play-by-play descriptions of actual trades in numerous markets, giving you the knowledge and confidence you need to make spread trading a high-percentage, lower-risk component of your overall investing and trading strategy.
