The next part of this course will explore the profitability of options, students learn how to make a profit with both call and put options.

This will be followed with a detailed understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of options in order to expose students to both sides of this financial tool.
Option pricing is the next subject handled in this course. Including a discussion about premiums, expiry and supply and demand, the first thing we cover about pricing is the basics. Then, we talk about how options acquire their value (intrinsically and extrinsically), provide examples of option prices, and explore three key ideas related to options: being in-the-money, at-the-money and out-of-the-money.
Following our conversations related to the basics of options pricing, this course then continues with an examination of what are called options greeks - risk factors (which determine an option’s price) that are each identified by a letter in the greek alphabet.
Finally, this chapter will conclude by wrapping options trading up and providing students with a window into a popular options pricing model called the Black Scholes Model - which will help learners to collate all the previous options pricing information learned in this course into a succinct and easily digestible practical application.
