OIC - Harness "The Greeks" To Understand Options From Delta to Vega and Everything in Between June 28, 2017 12:00 ET

Advisors who use options realize there are certain ways to forecast what will happen to the price of an option or a position involving multiple options as the market changes. This can be a difficult undertaking and at times presents challenges.
Since the option price does not always move as expected with the price of the underlying asset, it is important to understand what factors contribute to the movement in the price of an option, and what effect they have.
Options professionals frequently refer to the delta, gamma, vega and theta of their option positions. Collectively, these terms are known as the "Greeks" and they provide a way to measure the sensitivity of an option's price to quantifiable factors. These terms may seem confusing and intimidating to Advisors, but broken down, the Greeks refer to simple concepts that can help you better understand the risk and potential reward of an option position.
