What Will I Get From This Course?

Peeling off the complexities of Financial markets

Financial markets are the perfect example of a "complex system", where a hundred different factors can affect prices. You'll truly appreciate this fact, as you understand some of the best practices that are key to crafting excellent strategy, and making good decisions. Knowledge is power. When you trade with knowledge, you can trade with confidence.

Spot, Track and Follow the "Smart Money"

If you had the ability to spot and track the big money going into a stock, or getting out of it, that 's the kind of insight that can truly give you the "EDGE". This is an "art", and will reinforce your understanding of the fundamental principles that drive markets. The markets are not random, and stock price movement is not random. There is a method hidden behind the madness.

A critical bridge to cross

Being able to precisely fine-tune the risk and reward characteristics of your trade idea is powerful. This analysis provides a framework for thinking about investing and trading in unique perspectives, including concepts of "Income strategies" or "Non-directional" trading. The strategy is all Math and Probability analysis, something that's useful in any situation, notwithstanding its limitations.

Hari teaches us how VIX is important key component to option trading and which strategies you should employ in various VIX environments.

The VIX is one way to gauge the amount of fear that is priced into the market. The great thing he explained is fundamentals behind VIX calculations, and how the correlations were built between market and VIX over years. Definitely helps you in understanding options trading better, without high VIX, I mean fear 🙂

Thanks Hari for such wonderful course!

Every option trader needs to be aware of and understand the VIX index.

If you are not clear on the "Fear Index," Hari does an excellent job in explaining what the VIX is about, as well as very good insight into how to position your trades when the index changes in value.

Thanks Hari. Great job !!!

Great primer on option components

This course provides detailed overviews of the different components of options. The lectures are clear, concise, and easy to understand. Hari does a great job explaining the concepts but keeping the information at a level suitable for a beginner. Before this course I had no idea what Implied Volatility was or what the Greeks meant. Now I have a solid understanding of their basics and function. I look forward to taking more courses and expanding on this knowledge. Thanks Hari.
