Options Crash Course: Ep #7 - Gamma: Sign, Magnitude, and Risk

Options Crash Course

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

In today’s episode of Tastytrade’s Options Crash Course, we dive headfirst into gamma, or delta’s change as stock prices change. With gamma, arguably the most confusing of all the Greeks we use to actively monitor our portfolios, it’s important to recognize what is important and what is not.

While the sign of gamma is critically important for us to understand our positions, the actual magnitude of gamma is far less important. As we manage our positions at 21 DTE, we’re naturally able to control any gamma risk that might otherwise be associated with our positions.
