TradeKing’s Options Playbook Hits Kindle and Takes to the Airwaves

For investors looking to boost their understanding and knowledge of options trading, life just got a little easier. TradeKing Group, Inc. today announced its popular Options Playbook is now available for the Kindle through Amazon.

The light-hearted, how-to book draws from the metaphor of the sports playbook to help demystify options trading for investors of all levels. Previously only available in print and on the companion website, the Playbook is now readily accessible on one’s Kindle (and Kindle App for other tablets and phones) with the added benefit of being fully searchable, putting options definitions and strategies at investors’ fingertips. The Options Playbook for Kindle is available on Amazon.com for the suggested retail price of $25 and in hardback copy for $35.

Building on the book’s success, Options Insider Radio Network now features Brian Overby, the book’s author and TradeKing’s Senior Options Analyst, in a weekly program called Options Playbook Radio. During the program, Overby, aka “The Options Guy,” breaks down options strategies, or “plays,” featured in the book and explains how investors can incorporate them into their own portfolios.

“Whether you are attempting to grow capital with offensive maneuvers or trying to protect investments with defensive plays, you can learn about these possibilities, along with their risks, on Options Playbook Radio,” said Overby. “More than just explaining strategies, however, we dig in and look at definitions, how options contracts are priced and talk about many of the common mistakes option traders make.”

Options Playbook Radio airs weekly on Thursdays and is posted for consumption online at Options Insider Radio as well as other popular media outlets.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg.

Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.
