Options Playbook 5:  Volatility and Probability, Continued             

For those of you playing the home game, we’re on pages 14-17 today.  Or, for the online version, check out, “What Is Volatility?”

 

 

In this episode, Brian continues the discussion of volatility and probability.  In this episode, he covers different timeframes beyond one-year options.  How does a one standard deviation move affect prices for short-term options (30, 60, and 90-day options)? There’s a formula for that!  Options move at the square root of time.
