Help - Vanilla Options profit

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon, quick newbie question...

I'd like to buy 1 contract Vanilla Option US 500 4400 CALL, when I select the amount of contracts to buy there's a note saying "1 USD per point",

does it mean that if the US500 index will raise to 4500 I'll have 100USD profit?

if not, how is profit calculated?

Thanks in advance for you help, Luigi

Thank you very much for your fast reply

One more question, how is the price of the option calculated?

for instance, at the moment the price of a Vanilla Option US 500 4400 CALL is about 279USD per contract

and the US 500 Future is about 4383

How do you get the 279USD price?

Thanks, Luigi

Hi @LuigiLuigi

Thanks for the query

We price our options based on the Black-Scholes model. This is a mathematical model that will calculate option prices looking at the following variables: Value of the underlying asset, strike price, volatility and time until expiration. The model will automatically derive a price which is then displayed on the platform. This is a brief summary but you are welcome to research the model to delve into the detail. 

All the best

    • Yes I agree Guru, giving current examples is a good way of doing it! I have been trading for over 20 years and in the last 11 years I found myself mainly trading DAX (Germany) 40, because it is the easiest and most profitable. Which market do you find easiest to trade, Guru? Does anybody else find DAX easier to trade than other markets?  I am interested in hearing other traders' experiences.
    • Source: Coingecko  Source link: https://www.coingecko.com/research/publications/2024-q1-crypto-report The cryptocurrency sector has experienced significant growth in 2024, driven by events like Lugano city's acceptance of crypto payments and the approval of the Bitcoin spot ETF. The industry's market cap reached a record high of $2.9 trillion, with $1.1 trillion added in Q1 alone. Bitcoin surged to a new peak of $73k, surpassing its previous ATH of $68k. Top centralized exchanges like Binance, Bitget, OKX, and Bybit saw substantial growth, with Bitget particularly excelling in derivative trading. Bitget's open interest exceeded OKX's and ranked closely behind Binance and Bybit. Spot trading volume surged from $29B in January to $95B in March, elevating Bitget to the top 7 spot in the spot market and maintaining the 4th position in the derivative market among major centralized exchanges. While other exchanges also witnessed significant growth, Bitget's standout performance has made it the focal point of industry attention. What are your impressions of these findings?
    • DogeDay always brings back memories of 2019 when my friends were diving into Dogecoin and joining farming activities. That's why I'm excited to explore the Bitget DogeDay giveaway event. Plus, with tomorrow's BTC halving, the excitement is doubled!
