Beta Weighting and Hedging

Market Measures

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

Beta weighting is a relatively new concept in finance that allows complex portfolios (like those constructed at tastytrade) to be able to quantify their risk in a simple, normalized value.

The risk of an entire portfolio can actually be statistically computed from the perspective of one common index (usually SPY) and that makes it easier for traders to know how much directional risk they are exposed to at any given point in time.

Tune in as Tom and Tony explain how to interpret and use this information in an options portfolio.
