    This goes into much more detail than what I’ve learned about Delta from other courses I’ve taken. Thanks for making this available.

    I looked at the Mastery Series last year, and was going to order it but this looks really good. I’ll be ordering over the weekend. Thanks for the extra ‘nudge’ to place my order. I want to learn options and think this will work well for me.

    Volatility with their effects to understand perfectly Trumpification
    and take positions for Delta Neutral transactions.

    Delta and Volatility are chnging entities. How does a trader deal with the dynamics of this pair?

  • 6. Roland  |  July 21st, 2007 at 11:29 am

    Very, Very good explaination. Thank you

  • 7. Carrie Greg  |  July 21st, 2007 at 12:36 pm

    A very thorough presentation on Delta! I understood the effect of time and volatility on Delta, but I didn’t know it was called “trumpification.” I found out the hard way just how critical the Greeks are when trading options!

  • 8. RAJ DORAI  |  July 21st, 2007 at 3:45 pm

    It is in deed an excellent presentation and worth to call your training intitution as ‘OPTON UNIVERSITY’.


  • 9. Alan Hebert  |  July 21st, 2007 at 3:54 pm

    Ron, nice job explaining delta. I feel that with some practice, I’ll know it well after this video

  • 10. Jeffrey  |  July 21st, 2007 at 4:42 pm

    You did a great job with this topic. I have read a lot and taken a number of courses. So, for me it was a review. However, if this is new material for other “students” my recommendation is to review it until you understand it. Before I understood these topics I had long Calls on equities that went up but the Calls decreased in value. That was a costly lesson. The topics of delta, time decay and volatility MUST be fully understood.
    Thanks for the review.

    After having completed the Options University on line course, I have found this segment to be an Excellent Refresher Reminder of what was taught to me in the Course.

    “The Geeks” Delta,Gamma,Theta etc, Such a lovely tiltle for all the factors that effect the selection of the option.The explanation is very clear and to the point ,the example of valuating all the options before one takes plunge in to the the water from a height is superb,it makes the concept clear for the application of the Geeks to Option trading and without doubt this course will work wondrs for those who wish to trade in Options, I wish to congratulate the professors who is on the lesson, i do not know is name.i liked his clarity of voice and explanaytionVery Good Indeed
    Thank you

    buying stocks for becoming delta neutral I understand because the stock is then owned. Selling stock for a similar purpose seems strange because, once sold it becomes cash and can play no part in the delta neutral equation.

    Sorry to hear that. This is why proper and thorough education about options is paramount before trading them. I was a ‘cowboy’ options trader back in the internet boom, making as much as $60k in a month - only to give it all back because I didn’t understand these key concepts. It prompted me to find the best information out there, and the best as well as most qualified instructors to teach me - and after not having any luck finding them… I started the Options University with the goal of bringing the best options educators and instructors together to teach other students the important concepts.

    There are no guarantees in the markets, but you can significantly increase your chances by using options, the right way, and with the proper education. We are uniquely qualified to teach you, should you decide you want to learn and try again (paper trading first). Gool luck, and hope you make it around the world yet!

    Excellent discoourse on the “Greeks’. But it is going to take another couple of re-runs before it will soak in. Also would like to know the mechanism how the tables change when the volatility is incresed or decreased. That is one thing that I did not get to see as it moved so fast the table looked steady, BUT it did change and now I am puzzled. That looked like a sleight of hand.!! Ha!

    Please make it available for a second run.

    As clear and to the point as I have ever heard it explained.

    Thanks Ron

    how can i get headging software (delta).how much price for that it can be use in indian market also ? and respected how much minimum money req. to suggest.

    I hope I’m not being redundant. On the other blog I mentioned that in 1997-98 I worked on the floor of the PacCoast Stock Exch. in SF. I worked for a big NYSE firm (hint:Bear~) We cleared trades for a lot of traders. One enormously successful independent trader put on numerous stock positions in various stocks, simutaneously putting on option positions in the correlating stock.
    After reviewing your “THE GREEKS” lesson presentation (twice), I have a much better understanding what he was doing. Not fully, mind you, but I can see that lesson would naturally follow “he Greeks”. My appetite is whetted. thetrader as many of the other traders, divulged nothing about what they were doing. Sure would like to see the whole Options University Course….. Kudos; Great presentation!
    Kind regards, Charles W

    Yes, both delta and volatility are dynamic and changes in volatility affects the delta of options.Further, options with high deltas (Deep in-the-money) and options with low deltas (Far out-of-the-money) are less sensitive to movements in volatility than are closer to 50 deltas. The easiest way to manage this is to first fully understand the affects. From there, second tier greeks, particularly V-delta or V-Del can then quantify the affect for you. This goes back to our philosophy of understanding options and not just trading them.

    Best explanation I’ve heard on delta. Keep up the good work. I’ve once heard the statement that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. That has been true for me regarding the understanding of Delta, I was ready and you appreared. Thanks again.
