WEEKLY OPTIONS TRADING AND  OPTION EXPIRATION DYNAMICSThe impact of time  decay on Option prices in the final week before expiry is an exciting  phenomenon. We know time decay is exponential, but how do the Greeks actually  behave during this time. This course on Trading Options at Expiration takes a deep dive using Apple (AAPL) Options Weekly series. We follow an AAPL Short Straddle trade from Thursday morning  until deep into the following week. The Short Straddle is explained in detail  in this course. The Greeks  are on steroids during the final week of an Option’s life.Option Greeks behave  abnormally during the final week, especially the At-The-Money Options. It  should be intuitive that these Options are experiencing an enormous amount of  uncertainty insofar as to whether they will end up in-the-money or not. What  may not be clear is how the Greeks behave during this time which ultimately  impacts Option prices.Most importantly, the  lectures focus on the kinds of strategies that are ideal during the final two  weeks before expiry. Although most strategies tend to focus on the most dominant  Options characteristic during this time (Time Decay), the course also shows a  couple of very interesting, very high reward strategies with very little risk.  What can you expectWhat are Weekly Options and why are they specialWhat characteristics do Options have when they are very close to expiryWhat kind of trades are suitable during this timeWhat sort of attention do you need to give to these tradesWhat kinds of traders are Weekly Options suitable forWhat time decay strategies could work during the final weekThe impact of the final weekend on Option pricesWhat challenges and pitfalls can you expect from Weekly OptionsWhat role does the Greek Gamma take on during this timeAnd why does Vega whimper out during this timeAnd what about Delta and Theta – it’s a total Greek-fest WEEKLY OPTIONS ARE VERY EXCITING TO TRADE BUT MAKE SURE THEY ARE FOR YOU !!!
