Panel: Put/Call Parity, What Investors Need To Know
Tuesday, November 22
3:30 to 4:30 p.m. CT

There’s a three-sided relationship between a call, a put and the underlying security. Call price movements impact put prices. We’ll explain how the combined deltas of the synthetic long position (a long call plus a short put) at the same strike price and same expiration will equal 100 deltas – or are equivalent to the long underlying security. This relationship is one that many investors are not aware of. Join our experts as we get into put/call parity and why you should know about it.
