Options Jive

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

Our approach to trading is almost exclusively numbers-dependent; that is, we rely on historical data and probabilities when making decisions whether it be simply choosing a stock to buy or choosing the strikes for our Iron Condors. Today’s Options Jive show highlights five of our top measures for making these decisions.

The show is divided into forward-looking measures, like implied volatility (IV), and backward-looking measures, like realized volatility (RV) and standard deviations of movement. Tom walks through the calculation for each of these tools and goes on to describe how he uses each in his daily trade.

Watch the above segment for further details on mathematical tools that can aid your trading.
