Effects of stock price on the time spread

  1. 1. Options and Binary Options Knowledge & Tips by Pierre A PienaarOptionsDoc, Todd, and Daves BIG Video:Profiting in Todays MarketTodds Free Video:New Trade This AM, and Update---------------------Effects of Stock Price on the Time SpreadThe price of a time spread fluctuates with movements in stock price. A time spread is atits widest when the stock price and the strike price of the spread are identical or at-the-money.As the stock moves away from the strike in either direction, the value of the time spreaddecreases. As the stock moves in either direction from the spread’s strike, the closermonth will experience a quicker price change due to the front month’s higher gamma.Gamma shows the rate of change of an option’s Delta in relation to movements in theprice of the stock. It is the Delta of the Delta! Gamma is highest in at-the-money options

It decreases as you move away from the at-the-money strikeand as you move out over time.In the same way that a time spread loses value as the stock price moves away from thestrike price, the opposite holds true. As the stock price moves closer to the strike price,the value of the time spread increases.Examine the June / July 65 call time spread. With the stock priced at $65, directly at thestrike, the spread is at its widest point or highest value. As the stock climbs from $65and pushes toward $70, the June / July 65 spread loses value.At the same time the June / July 65 loses value, the June / July 70 spread gains in valueas the stock approaches the 70 strike. When the stock reaches $67.50 the pointequidistant (mid-point) between the two strikes, both spreads will trade atapproximately the same value.Look at Chart 2. Notice that as the stock increases from $57.50, both the June / July 65and June / July 70 spreads increase in value. Their increases continue until they reachtheir strike price at which time they both begin to lose value.This demonstrates that the spread with the strike price that the stock is moving towardwill increase in value. Meanwhile, the spread with the strike price that the stock ismoving away from will simultaneously lose value.Chart 2 follows the effect of the movement of the stock price across the two timespreads.Source: Options University
  3. 3. Binary OptionsHow can anyone predict market movements over short or longtime frames?Analysis of the financial markets can assist traders as make that important decisionbetween up and down. By conducting their own analysis, or using reliable trading signalsfrom professional analysts, the beginner trader should be aiming to trade in-the-moneyaround 70% to 80% of the time. Technical analysis is one of the two key methods usedby financial analysts to evaluate the markets and predict price action in the future. Thismethod of analysis involves the use of graphs, charts and statistics, all of which enableanalysts to spot patterns. It is these mathematical and statistical patterns which canindicate future activity.This brings the expert traders to the primary principle on which technical analysis stands:history tends to repeat itself. The sentiment is as true in market activity as in general life.The repetitive nature of price movements is generally attributed to the fact that marketparticipants react consistently to similar market stimuli over time. Furthermore the veryprice of any underlying asset follows trends. Once a trend has been established, futuremovement is more likely to move in the same direction than against it.Binary Options trading is a great way to trade on a wide variety of financial assets. Oncea new trader has learnt the basics and formed a basic strategy he will soon be able tomake high profits from trading the financial markets using binary contracts, even if hehas never traded before.Basically newcomers need two things when they’re beginners and want to be successfulin trading Binary Options:They definitely need a good strategy and they need to find the right Binary Optionsbroker which is always the hardest part of the challenging quest to high profits.Source: Banc De BinaryNewsBanc De Binary gets CySEC license
