Course Description

Options are not widely used by many retail investors in the stock market. However, if utilized properly, a wide variety of nuanced, risk-managed strategies can be employed. They can be used for hedging, income enhancement, or investment purposes. The underlying mathematics of options pricing is fairly complex, but acquiring an intuitive grasp of how they behave is very accessible. There are many useful analytical tools that can be used to model the behavior of options strategies and determine risk and return parameters upfront. The course will examine the various kinds of options and how they behave. We will have participants “paper trade” positions during the course and see how they would behave in real market conditions. Optimal trade execution methods will be covered as well. Various strategies will be illustrated, and the course will highlight the potential risks inherent in each strategy. Requirement: Participants should have a basic understanding of how the stock market works and some experience trading equities. Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion
