In this segment of our options blog series, we delve into the cutting-edge capabilities of BBAE’s MyMarket, proudly introducing our innovative tool for options trading, brought to you in partnership with our partner dxFeed. This groundbreaking technology levels the investment landscape by providing real-time, arbitrage-free theoretical option prices.
Displayed alongside every options contract, these theoretical values are a revolutionary asset for both newcomers and seasoned options traders. Here’s why:
Understanding the Value of Options
Comprehending the value of an option in the options trading world can be somewhat complex. Market prices for options can swing due to a plethora of factors, and occasionally, some options may suffer from liquidity shortages. These scenarios can challenge the accurate determination of an option’s fair price.
BBAE’s Solution: Theoretical Pricing Tool
This is where our dxFeed powered theoretical pricing tool steps in. This ingenious tool computes theoretical option prices based on real-time and historical market data. These prices present a fair and accurate portrayal of an option’s worth under specific market circumstances. They are ‘arbitrage-free’, implying the elimination of profit-making opportunities from price discrepancies for other market players at your expense. This ensures that the price you shell out for an option accurately represents its theoretical value, considering the prevailing market conditions.
The Notion of an ‘Arbitrage-Free’ Market
In layman’s terms, an ‘arbitrage-free’ market guarantees equity for all participants. It implies that an option seller cannot leverage price differences to secure a risk-free profit at your cost. They can’t overcharge for an option, nor can they underpay for an option from you.
BBAE’s Solution: Model Neutral Algorithm
Our tool employs a model-neutral algorithm, proving effective across diverse asset classes. It leverages cubic splines, a type of mathematical interpolation, to approximate option prices. This approach generates smooth price and volatility curves, offering users the most precise and fair option prices.
Understanding the Importance of the Greeks
This tool not only calculates theoretical prices but also computes the Greeks: delta, gamma, vega, theta, and rho. These Greeks play a crucial role in understanding the risk and potential reward of an options position. They offer insights into how an option’s price might fluctuate in response to diverse factors like changes in the price of the underlying asset or shifts in implied volatility.
BBAE’s Solution: Comprehensive Pricing and Risk Analysis
By offering ‘arbitrage-free’ theoretical prices and the Greeks, BBAE’s MyMarket safeguards you from being at a disadvantage due to sellers attempting to profit from arbitrage opportunities. Combined with real-time updates and historical data analysis, this tool equips you with everything necessary to trade options with increased confidence and understanding. It fosters transparent pricing, ensuring fair trading, and ultimately empowering you to make more informed investment decisions.
Empowering Traders with Technology
This innovative technology enables BBAE’s MyMarket to bolster investors in their options trading journey, equipping them with a clear and accurate understanding of their potential risks and rewards.

Balancing Opportunity with Risk: Options Trading is Not for Everyone
While the world of options trading can provide lucrative opportunities, it’s important to remember that options trading may not be suitable for every investor. The complexities of options and the inherent risks, such as the potential for significant losses, mean that options trading requires a robust understanding of financial markets, sound risk management practices, and an investor’s readiness to undertake potential losses.
BBAE’s MyMarket tool is designed to provide you with the resources and technology to navigate this intricate landscape with greater ease. However, each investor’s financial objectives, risk tolerance, and investment experience differ, making it vital to thoroughly evaluate whether options trading aligns with your overall investment strategy.
