Let’s understand from a broader perspective what’s the difference between these two.

Would not like to discuss the construction difference between them if you don’t know stop trading #options

#Straddles

You get higher premium so pnl would be higher compared to #strangles

But from where are you getting higher premiums is that your selling 0.5 #delta.

So probability of one going wrong is always 50% so to simply put one side is goin to get stuck in a #straddle but then market tends to #flucuate a lot so there is always the case of #meanreversion if you have selected the #strike rightly.

#Option #Greeks Simplified

#Options are definitely more complicated than equity or futures.

Their prices don’t just go up and down.

They also fluctuate based on things like #time, #implied #volatility and #underlying stock movements.

#Options #Greeks Are Simply Mathematical Shortforms

Most of you would remember from school that mathematical formulas sometimes were #Greek letters like Pi and #Delta. The same is true for options.

Don’t let them overwhelm you or scare you.

Don’t let them overwhelm you or scare you.

They’re simply #mathematical words to explain some very basic principles.

Each #greek can help predict how it will behave under different circumstances and how options prices would change.

Option Greeks : Myths and Realities

Option Greeks estimate how an option's price changes with ::

1.Underlying stock price : #Delta and #Gamma

2. Interest Rates : #Rho

3. Volatility : #Vega

4. Time : #Theta

A simplified thread about #Gamma : Delta is change in option price with change in stock/nf/BN, but Delta doesn't remain constant, so how much delta will be changed, is measured by Gamma. Confusing?

#Gamma measures risk of movement, for e.g #tcs is trading at 2000rs,

The primary feature of #Options is their non-linear payout.

Most traders understand that #OptionsPricing is dependent on the price of the underlying, but the response is non-linear. #Gamma is the variable that describes this non-linearity.
