The four times a year a public company releases their quarterly earnings often coincide with the four most volatile trading days of the year for the company’s stock. Option traders are always attracted to potential volatility and option pricing going into an earnings announcement will reflect the anticipated price action that results from the market digesting new financial information.

In this webinar, Russell Rhodes, Head Research and Consulting at EQDerivatives, covered:

  • How option pricing adjusts before and after earnings announcements.
  • How traders try to use this price action.
  • And much more!
