Diversification is one of the most important principles of investing and for good reason. When you invest in a single asset class, you are exposed to the risk that the performance of that asset class may decline. If you have a diversified portfolio, however, the risk of loss is spread out among different types of assets, which can help to reduce the impact of any one investment losing value.
Diversification also helps to protect against unforeseen events. For example, if you have a portfolio that is heavily invested in the stock market and there is a sudden market crash, your portfolio will likely suffer significant losses. However, if you have a diversified portfolio that includes a mix of stocks, bonds, and other assets, you may be better positioned to weather the storm.
Options Greeks: Gamma & Theta
Gamma (Γ): Gamma represents the rate of change of an option’s delta in response to changes in the price of the underlying asset. It measures the convexity of an option’s delta. Gamma is highest for at-the-money options and decreases as the option moves further in or out of the money.
Theta (θ): Theta measures the rate of time decay or erosion of an option’s value as time passes. It represents how much the option price is expected to decrease with the passage of time, assuming all other factors remain constant. Theta is typically negative, indicating that options lose value as expiration approaches.
