J.L.Lord – Four Books
J.L.Lord – One Strategy for All Markets
Traded by only a select few professional traders on the floor, and often incorrectly at that, this manual takes you from soup-to-nuts on the most powerful strategy the author perfected during his 10+ years on the trading floors of Chicago. This book teaches the reader how to put on trades where there could be virtually no risk of loss provided the market doesn’t crash more than 800 Dow points in a day. And even then, there is remedy for that should it occur. This strategy can be done in any market condition and blows the doors off any concept of risk–reward you may have ever learned before.This is known as the “ BWB” or Broken Wing Butterfly

J.L.Lord – Stocks, Options & Collars
This easy to understand manual is perfect for everyone, from those who are just starting out in options to the most sophisticated traders. Some of the items in this text were used in seminars where participants literally paid $5, 000 to learn less than what is covered in this manual. You can also learn to properly hedge your entire portfolio of stocks and mutual funds with index options.
This is the only book you will ever need to effectively manage a stock position with options. When the typical return for a stock is just over 10% annually, you owe it to yourself and your family to lean methods by which you could attain a greater than 10% monthly return on your stocks, using many of the same stocks you currently own. This is not the popular, yet risky, covered call strategy, but a step-by-step technique in which the criteria will guide you to find the perfect hedge and collar.
J.L.Lord – Time Spreads
Due to their simple construction and low maintenance, time spreads (a.k.a. calendar spreads) are some of the most widely used strategies in the options world. This manual offers step-by-step instruction on how to place and manage long and short time spreads in order to maximize the effect that time decay and volatility have on the positions.
While many traders focus on futile adjustments, we at Random Walk understand that the key to successful time spreads lies in the preparation. Through careful examples, we will teach you to avoid the most common mistakes that time spread traders make. Notably, we will once and for all debunk the volatility skew myth.
In keeping with our tradition of excellence, we have included sections covering early exercise and assignment. To ensure that your education is complete, we have added an appendix on basic synthetic positions to help you understand your trades should you get assigned.
Finally, we have included a chapter dedicated to exploring how the new risk based margin rules will forever change our industry. Strategies that were once out of the retail trader’s reach due to high capital requirements will now be more accessible. This chapter is filled with examples on many of the most common strategies that will benefit from the rule changes. These include married puts, collars, gamma scalping, short time spreads, and more.
