Now that earnings season is over it's time to get back to basics: the Greeks. You can find an entire chapter on Greeks in The Options Playbook. This is always available on, in on the Amazon Kindle edition.

In this episode:

  • A review of last time
  • Using the Greeks
  • What does a delta do?
  • Meet the Greeks in The Options Playbook
  • As expiration approaches, what happens to delta? For that, you need gamma
  • What about theta?
  • Delta when a contract is in-, at- or out-of-the-mooney
  • Delta moves slower than other Greeks
  • You can't have slow time decay on a fast moving option
