The AAII Research Triangle Chapter presents...

"Understanding Option Volatility"

    Discussed by:

    Alan Grigoletto
    Director of Education, The Options Industry Council

Options can give investors the flexibility to hedge market exposure, speculate on a specific market move, or allow investors to take simple to complex option positions. One of the most critical and least understood components to the success of option trading is volatility. This presentation is designed to give you an introduction to what volatility is, how it works, and why it is important to understand it. Even though volatility is an extremely complex subject, Alan will break it down in simple terms without getting bogged down in the complex calculus.

Attend This Meeting and Learn...
The fundamental theory of current/implied volatility derived from an option’s theoretical value and how over- or underpriced options can be calculated using current implied volatility when measured ag
How the ebb and flow of implied volatility can act independent of the passage of time and other option price variables
