Options Pricing

by Joe Duffy and Darrell Jobman

The following is an excerpt from Joe Duffy and Darrell Jobman's Inside Secrets of the Mile-High Cash Club

The following four major factors go into determining the price – the premium – of an option.

Price of the Underlying Instrument – Whatever moves the price of the underlying instrument will have an effect on the price of an option, with the extent of the effect depending on the proximity of the underlying price to the strike price. Options prices do not track the price of the underlying instrument precisely. An in-the-money option will react differently than an out-of-the-money option.

Strike Price – The strike price is the key pricing point against which all elements of the options price can be compared. It is the dividing line between profit and loss and whether an option will be exercised at time of expiration. Options at a strike price that is far removed from the price of the underlying instrument may have little day-to-day movement, whereas options at a strike price close to the underlying price will reflect changes in the underlying price more closely.

Time Remaining Until Expiration – When someone talks about “buying time” and hoping something good will happen to them during the time they have, they might be talking about an options buyer. The more time left in the life of an option, the more value the option has, all other things being equal. Every passing day reduces the time value, with this erosion in value beginning slowly then increasing rapidly during the last 30 days or so before expiration until it reaches zero. The only value in an option at that point is its intrinsic value. Consequently, an option is known as a “wasting asset”. Time decay can work against an option buyer who is waiting for an option position to move above a breakeven point.

Trading the 60-Minute Charts

by Duane Davis

The following is an excerpt from Duane Davis' DIY Success Package

To get an appreciation of what it is to trade using intraday charts, let’s take a look at a couple of examples using 60-Minute charts. The first chart below is of the EUR/USD. Let’s say that it’s 4:00 PM ET, and you decide that you’re going to trade the European Session when it starts 11 hours from now at 3:00 AM. Looking at your 60-minute chart you notice the market is in the process of forming a symmetrical triangle. You also notice that if the market happens to break to the upside and penetrate the upper line of the triangle, the price will probably challenge the recent high just above 1.4950.

As you continue your analysis and you look at the ‘bearish’ side of the picture, you notice that if the market should break to the downside of the triangle, support should come in at the recent high around 1.4730 (the dotted line on the chart). To make these charts easier to see, we may leave off additional indicators such as Bollinger bands or the RSI. However, in your analysis, it’s always worth applying these indicators to help pinpoint overbought and oversold areas.

Your preliminary analysis is telling you that you’ll be entering two possible orders: One order to buy the EUR/USD on a breakout above 1.4910, and another to sell on a breakout below 1.4800.

Guaranteed Real Optioneering Winners

by Chuck Hughes

The following is an excerpt from Chuck Hughes’ Optioneering Newsletter

Every week Chuck Hughes publishes his “Optioneering Newsletter”. The following are trade updates from his most recent issue.

Mini Dow Futures Weekly: We are looking at the Mini Dow futures chart because it includes the huge decline that occurred on election night. That’s a big bullish weekly reversal! The big reversal is a sign that the recent correction is over and the uptrend is resuming.

The first profit opportunity we will consider is SOXL, the Direxion Daily Semiconductor Bull 3X Shares ETF. SOXL seeks to yield results that correspond to three times the daily performance of the PHLX (Philadelphia Stock Exchange) Semiconductor Sector Index.

SOXL Monthly: The monthly chart shows that SOXL hit a new record high last month. New record highs are bullish.

PLEASE READ. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. There is a substantial risk of loss trading commodities, stocks, bonds and options with or without this or any other advertised product, service or system. Also hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Since the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.
