This webinar presents the basic concept that underlies option pricing without recourse to mathematics such as the Black-Scholes Formula. This is intended for those with little or no knowledge of options valuation and trading who would like to dispel some of the mystery that too often surrounds this activity. It also may be of interest to those involved in option trading and risk management who would like an approach to clarifying this activity to their general business colleagues.
