Why do you need to understand the importance of Options and advanced Quant Models?

Weather you are a Stock, Futures or Options Trader you cannot ignore the importance of Options and the impact they can bring to the price action of your asset.

Options are becoming more important for investors. Even if you don’t trade options you need to be aware of how options can affect the underlying price. 

In 2021 Options volumes surpassed Equity Volumes for the first time. Options are becoming more important and this trend is here to stay. Because of the increased volume of options and leverage that comes with it, a trader cannot afford to ignore these flows like before. Options volumes have become one if not the key flow that is responsible for certain price action. Understanding it will make you a better risk manager and a more successful trader.  

Options Volumes

In this Podcast together with Anthony Crudele we go over Gamma Levels and how Stock, Options and Futures Traders can leverage them to their advantage.

Step 6. Understanding the importance of Market Makers Flow

Then we need to understand the importance of Market Makers and how their flow can impact the price action of any asset.

The Market Maker is a key player to ensure liquidity in the market. They provide bids and ask prices that we can use to buy or sell our options. By providing Liquidity they take on a risk. The first step is to understand how Market Makers make money. They do not make money from the direction of the trade. They make money by charging a spread on volumes executed.

To protect themselves from losing money, Market Makers use a strategy called Delta Hedging. It is a complicated concept that involves the understanding of how Options Greeks works and today we are not going to go into the details of it.  In the simplest form, that means that the market maker is always hedging its portfolio making trades that offset their risk. They buy or sell the underlying asset based on the change of the price, volatility and time to expiration. This activity is like their own protection. It helps them not lose money when the market falls. 

Because the Market Makers are buying and selling the underlying, this affects liquidity of the asset and can affect the price action. You can learn more about Delta Hedging using the link below:
