Hello, This thread has been created to understand the Option Greeks. I would like to say that we, as an individual trader, least focus on the importance of the option greeks before taking a position in options. Let us discuss about the option greeks and its importance - Basically there are five option greeks. They are - (1) Delta - It measures an options sensitivity (i.e. option price) to changes in the price of the underlying assets. (2) Gamma - It measures the delta's sensitivity to changes in the price of the underlying assets. (3) Vega - It measures an option's sensitivity to changes in the volatility of the underlying assets. (4) Theta - It measures an option's sensitivity to time decay. (5) Rho - It measures an option's sensitivity to changes in the risk free interest rate. These five option greeks are really plays an important role in trading decision making. I hope this will help.
If you’re somewhat new to Options, you must have heard about the Option Greeks. In fact, a common rookie mistake with Options traders is that they ignore the importance of the Option Greeks (Truth be told, I’m guilty – I ignored them for almost 6 months). This is easily one of the biggest mistakes a newbie Options trader can do. Let me give you a simple analogy, and perhaps the importance of Option Greeks may hit home.
