Step – 4: Then, you will see the various strike prices of the call options. You can click on Buy/Sell and Call/Put and select the Expiration date from the drop-down list. You can see the current price of the underlying stock is in the middle of the option chain.

Robinhood step- 4

Step – 5: Choose the strike price you expect Tesla to move until the contract’s expiration.

Robinhood step- 5

Let’s assume we are currently bullish on Tesla, trading at $693.40 and expecting the stock to go up. So we are buying a Call Option of the Strike price of $700, Expiring on 8th January 2021.

Lets us understand some important terms of the contract

  1. Strike-Price: It is the price we are betting. We expect Tesla will go beyond $700 on or before 8th January 2021.
  2. Break-even: There will be no profit and no loss at this point.
    Break-even= Strike Price +/- Premium paid [$(700 + 21.45)].
  3. Price: The amount we have to pay for buying the right to buy/sell the contract. If we buy a call option, we get the right but not an obligation to buy the underlying security at the predefined strike on or before the expiration.

Step – 6: Click on the plus sign near the price to activate the review order box.

Robinhood step-6

Step – 7: Type the number of the contracts you want to trade and then click on the review order button to place the order. By default, Robinhood takes the limit order price, i.e., the bid and ask price average.

Robinhood Step-7

While trading options, you should always consider some important factors that affect your trade success rate and options prices

  1. Volume: It is the number of trades that happen in the period, says in a day.
  2. Open interest (OI): OI is the number of derivatives contracts (futures and options) open in the market. We can judge the liquidity of the contract from the OI.
  3. Implied Volatility (IV): IV tells the expected range the stock can move up or down. Say, for example, XYZ stock is trading at $100, and its implied volatility is 20%. It implies that there are 68% chances that stock will move in the range of $80 to $100

Option Greeks play a vital role in the option prices

  1. Delta: Delta measures the change in the options price with a 1 unit change in the underlying asset.
  2. Gamma: Gamma measures the change in the delta with the change in the underlying stock price.
  3. Theta: Theta measures the time decay. It means how much the option loses its value every day until the expiration.
  4. Vega: Vega is the sensitivity of the IV. It tells how much the options price change with the 1 % change in the IV.
  5. Rho: Rho measures the change in the contract price with a change in the risk-free rate.
