Taking Advantage of Volatility

Best Practices

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

We often talk about Volatility and why it is one of the most important things to be aware of when trading options. There are a number of different types of volatility (Implied Volatility, IV Rank, Historical Volatility, etc.), so it can be easy to get confused.

Today, Tom Sosnoff and Tony Battista discuss all of the different types of volatility and what you need to know about each. The guys also discuss a number of different ways that you can use the current volatility of an underlying to estimate the expected move of an underlying for a desired time frame. These are great short cuts to know in order to give yourself an idea where an underlying is expected to trade during the life of your positions!
