Their powerful system permits thorough analysis and comparison of many option combinations in terms of both expected profitability and potential risk. It formalizes and classifies over a dozen criteria intended to select preferable trading alternatives from a vast quantity of potential opportunities, showing how to apply multiple valuation criteria concurrently to systematically identify subtle price distortions, and consistently select trades that meet optimal parameters. Next, in Automated Option Trading: Create, Optimize, and Test Automated Trading Systems, they present thefirst complete step-by-step guide to creating profitable automated systems for the disciplined realization of well-defined, formalized, and tested option strategies. Every facet of their approach is optimized for options, including strategy development, capital allocation, risk management, performance measurement, back-testing, walk-forward analysis; and trade execution. Their system incorporates continuous valuation, structuring and long-term management of investment portfolios (not just individual instruments), and can systematically handle option combinations related to different underlying assets — making it possible to finally automate options trading at the portfolio level.
