CME: Volatility in the Crosshairs: 3-Part Series
It’s often been said that while futures are “two-dimensional” instruments, options tend to be four-dimensional instruments. With futures you are generally concerned with up and down direction only. With options however, you must deal with the ups and downs of the underlying as well as time decay and changes in implied volatility. Too often, beginners, and even more experienced traders ignore where we are at on the volatility continuum and it can lead to sub optimal trading results.
