Hello denizens of Evil Speculator! Just as Mole is off to visit his indigenous peoples of Austria, I’m back from a week of honoring my Fucks Given Reduction (FGR) process in the California desert at Lightning In A Bottle (LIB). Fresh and ready to go deep into some stuff you can actually use to trade with. As a bonus to my Cali trip, I got to spend a time in Venice with a man who goes by the moniker The Trip Advisor, who is behind-the-scene responsible for the biggest hit Post Malone has.
It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for the fourth installment in our ongoing tutorial series on option theory. We have come a long way in the past few weeks and at this point you should have a basic understanding of what differentiates buying a naked option from a trading strategy like a debit spread, which we covered last time. Today we are going talk about a related strategy which is called a credit spread.
It’s Friday and thus it’s time for the third installment in our tutorial series on option theory. In the last two installments we we covered options basics and then did our best to give you a head start on how to interpret option greeks. Today we’re going to jump right into debit spreads and explain why they often may be preferable to trading naked options.
It’s time for the second installment in our option basics tutorial series. Today we are going to cover the option greeks – which is commonly considered a dry topic. Well that was until now – this is Evil Speculator and vee have veeyz to make you understand! So grab a short sword and a bottle of body oil because you’re going to need it down in the dusty arena when I release the four snarling beasts of the derivates (the fifth one is sleeping until further notice). I will try to make basic training as painless as possible as it is crucial that you all understand how the greeks affect the premium of an option throughout its tumultuous existence.
