If You're an Educator
Jun 26, Kirill rated it it was amazing Shelves: Nov 07, Yasiru reviews will soon be removed and linked to blog rated it really liked it. Haven't used it as a textbook, but it's a nice resource to look up instruments and see them in context.
Jan 12, Clare rated it really liked it Shelves: A classic as both an introduction to the field, and a reference guide my copy is dog-eared and falling apart, ten years later. This is a very clearly written book and very thorough. It almost made a math type like me with no finance background competent at the topic.
Jan 28, Ming rated it really liked it. This book delineates the mathematics of options and derivatives pricing very VERY well Feb 22, Draganka rated it it was amazing. Admittedly not a cover to cover read, the chapters I needed were useful!
May 25, Dombercz rated it really liked it. May 29, Abraham Farag rated it really liked it. Written like a grad school textbook. Was very useful to me. Mar 09, Mark Wilson rated it it was amazing.
If you can understand everything this manual says, you are well on your way to understanding derivatives trading. However, it's not easy. Out of every 1, who say they understand everything it has to offer, perhaps only one really does. There are many other books on the subject. This is the one book you'll see every derivatives trader referring to-it's the Bible to them. If nothing else, this will teach you why derivatives traders are rewarded well. Mar 06, Tianyi rated it it was amazing.
An execllent book of modern financial theory. Jan 04, Saju Pillai rated it really liked it. Or as my friend says "proper scientific founding in derivatives with which to loose money in the market" - the same guy who came up with the chapter wise exercises available in the 6th Indian Edition of this book. The math is easy to grasp, Hull takes shortcuts while deriving some of the results in derivative theory but follows up with rigorous proofs in the appendix.
I would have personally liked some more in de Brilliant. I would have personally liked some more in depth study on Volatility; the book is otherwise reasonably well balanced. Jan 23, Parmeeta rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I think its Geeta for finance people as it covered vast area i. In short if u dont have any understanding about finance dont worry start with 1st page of this book and stop at last page, u will be GURU of finance. Still my favorite text on derivatives, I remember reading the first edition a couple of decades ago like it was yesterday.
Hull is a very engaging speaker, and reads if anything even better. The volume starts at the beginning pretty much at a highschool calculus and stats level and slowly builds. At the end the mystery of options and derivatives evaporates. Good for reference and digging deeper into a topic.
Not an introductory text. Jul 17, Singgih added it. Jan 05, Ikaprahayu rated it liked it. Dec 12, Harshdeep rated it it was amazing Shelves: Bible of Financial Market.
