A unique, in-depth guide to options pricing and valuing their greeks, along with a four dimensional approach towards the impact of changing market circumstances on options

How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks is the only book of its kind, showing you how to value options and the greeks according to the Black Scholes model but also how to do this without consulting a model. You'll build a solid understanding of options and hedging strategies as you explore the concepts of probability, volatility, and put call parity, then move into more advanced topics in combination with a four-dimensional approach of the change of the P&L of an option portfolio in relation to strike, underlying, volatility, and time to maturity. This informative guide fully explains the distribution of first and second order Greeks along the whole range wherein an option has optionality, and delves into trading strategies, including spreads, straddles, strangles, butterflies, kurtosis, vega-convexity , and more. Charts and tables illustrate how specific positions in a Greek evolve in relation to its parameters, and digital ancillaries allow you to see 3D representations using your own parameters and volumes.

The Black and Scholes model is the most widely used option model, appreciated for its simplicity and ability to generate a fair value for options pricing in all kinds of markets. This book shows you the ins and outs of the model, giving you the practical understanding you need for setting up and managing an option strategy.

Understand the Greeks, and how they make or break a strategy

See how the Greeks change with time, volatility, and underlying

Implement options positions, and more

Representations of option payoffs are too often based on a simple two-dimensional approach consisting of P&L versus underlying at expiry. This is misleading, as the Greeks can make a world of difference over the lifetime of a strategy. How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks is a comprehensive, in-depth guide to a thorough and more effective understanding of options, their Greeks, and (hedging) option strategies.

Editorial Reviews
From the Inside Flap

How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks gives options traders, risk managers, fund managers, and private investors an in-depth guide for valuing and understanding options and "the Greeks". This important resource explains the ins and outs of the commonly used Black and Scholes model that is appreciated for its simplicity and ability to generate a fair value for options pricing in all kinds of markets as well as how to calculate/approximate values for options and the Greeks without applying a model. The author outlines a practical approach for using the strengths of the Black and Scholes model to understand, set up, and effectively manage an option position.
The author explains, step by step the most effective options and hedging strategies. While other resources rely on an ineffective two dimensional approach to investing in options, Ursone takes a practical, four-dimensional approach that puts the emphasis on the distribution of the Greeks. Greeks measure the sensitivity of the value of an option with regards to changes in parameters like the strike, underlying (Future), volatility (measure of the variation of the underlying), time to expiry or maturity and the interest rate. Any change in one of the parameters will directly result in a change in the Greeks and will have an impact on the P&L of an options portfolio.The author therefore accentuates an understanding of the Greeks as a prerequisite for trading and managing an options portfolio.
This informative guide explains the distribution of first and second order Greeks along the whole range wherein an option has optionality, and delves into trading strategies, including spreads, straddles, strangles, butterflies, kurtosis, vega - convexity, and more. The book's illustrative charts and tables clearly show how specific positions in a Greek evolve in relation to its parameters.
How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks offers traders at all levels effective strategies that eschew the simplistic two dimensional approach of P&L versus underlying and shows how the Greeks can make a world of difference over the lifetime of an options portfolio. How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks is a comprehensive guide to a thorough and more effective understanding of options, their Greeks, and managing option strategies.

From the Back Cover

Praise for How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks
"Clearly written and easy to read. The book covers all the essential topics and has many very interesting approaches. In my current job, liaising with derivatives trading houses and as a former options trader, I can conclude that the book demonstrates that the Netherlands still functions as an expert area for the options business. How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks has everything in it to become the standard reference book on options. Highly recommended!"
—Rogier Elsenburg, Head of Benelux & France Huxley Banking & Financial Services
"Pierino Ursone's How to Calculate Options Prices and their Greeks provides a long overdue, comprehensive, and at the same time digestible update to the literature exploring options pricing and strategy. His writing is clear, concise, and straight-forward; unlocking the Holy Grail for the inexperienced and even the most experienced options trader. Ursone liberally illustrates each chapter with graphics and acknowledges the Black Scholes Model's mathematical and theoretical nderpinnings in plain, straight-forward language that makes new understanding of the complexity of options trading possible for both the novice and the expert. Ursone's thorough explanation of the practical application of first and second order greeks goes beyond the simplistic, two-dimensional strategies most traders will find when trying to educate themselves about options. He uses his vast experience and knowledge to act as expert, trader, tactician, and teacher, guiding readers through the markets and allowing them to look inside as they could never before."
—Matt Daen, Options Specialist
"Finally a holistic guide to options! This practical guide is essential for those seeking an understanding of option derivatives. Beyond merely informative, this handbook for the practitioner details the finer points of the use of options as tools for trading and price-risk management. No professional should be without it."
—Dr Tom James, Commodity Market Expert & Author
"An easy to read handbook for investors who wish to thoroughly understand, trade and manage an options portfolio. Pierino explains the characteristics and behaviour of options in a pragmatic way, coming from a trading perspective.
