Naked Spreads and Strangles – it doesn’t get much sexier that that. Yes, we are talking about options – but don’t be afraid as our guest, Kirk Du Plessis of OptionAlpha walks us through some “complex” strategies that are really much simpler that you think.
We discuss spreads, strangles, condors and other ways to profit from options. Kirk also gives is a good primer of Delta, Theta, Gamma and Vega – all the Greek you will need.
Of course central bank activity is in the spotlight and we take a close look at Yellen’s Jackson Hole speech and what to make of it.
