Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options
Presented by Stan Freifeld, Director of Corporate Services, McMillan Analysis Corp.
A delta neutral position is intended to remove the directional component from a position. The trader does not attempt to predict the direction of the underlying stock, but seeks to benefit from the interaction of stock price and options values. This strategy is used by both professional and non-professional traders.
Stan Freifeld will provide a definition and examine the possible advantages of making a position delta neutral. He’ll show you how to put on a delta neutral position, provide some examples, and answer questions. Since you’ll need a working knowledge of the Greeks, Stan will provide a brief explanation of them as well.
Duration: 60 minutes
Dates and Times:
Presented by Larry McMillan, President of McMillan Analysis Corporation
Options data – price and volume, in the form of implied volatility and put-call ratios – provides useful technical indicators for stocks and futures as well as the broader market. In addition, some indicators are useful in broad market and individual symbol analysis, such as the distance from the moving average (in standard deviations) or VIX spike peak buy signals (and other volatility-based spikes as well). The current state of these indicators in various markets will be discussed.
