The Wheel Option Strategy

HQ Color Images

To keep our printing costs low, and our books affordable, we print all books in Black & White. This isn’t ideal, especially if you want to look at candlestick charts.

So on this page you will find all images in color, along with their corresponding page in the paperback version so you can easily cross reference them.

This page is best viewed on desktop rather than mobile.
