Combinations of options allow you to create portfolios that expose you only to the risks and returns you want and not to all of the unrefined risks associated with simply buying the underlying asset.
The majority of retail traders who do trade options are buying the most basic call and put options, which have a much lower probability of profit compared with advanced strategies like options spreads.
Olive uses powerful algorithms to put these strategies together for you, so you can find fully customized trades based on your objectives and outlook. Selling options also has the added advantage of financing the cost of the buy side options in the combinations.
Olive's algorithm has been reviewed academically and commercially. Most importantly, we are incentivized to offer you the best outcome possible so that you feel good about your options and Olive.
