The Greek Values That Matter The Most

Ryan & Beef

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

On today's show, Ryan and Beef discuss the option greeks that we pay the closest attention to when monitoring our portfolio. These are values are delta and theta.

The guys focus on delta and theta today when we're gauging our positions and the risk of our portfolio, as well as when we're setting up a new trade.

Delta is the rate of change in the option's price for a one-point change in the price of the underlying stock. Theta is the change in the option's price given a one day passage of time (all else equal). We can also use these values to understand the directional risk of our portfolio and to see how much we're likely to experience in profit or loss, due to the passage of time.
