What is ATM Premium?

As an option trader, I often encounter the term ‘ATM Premium’. ATM, or At-The-Money, refers to an option whose strike price is identical to the current market price of the underlying asset. The premium is the price I pay to buy the option. It’s the income I receive when I sell or write an option.

ATM Premium Zerodha

Trading platforms like Zerodha provide real-time data on ATM premiums. This information is crucial for my trading decisions. The premium fluctuates based on factors such as the volatility of the underlying asset, time to expiry, and interest rates.

ATM Premium Chart

I rely heavily on ATM premium charts. These graphical representations show how the premium changes over time. By analyzing these charts, I can identify trends and patterns, helping me make informed trading decisions and also helps in executing strategies like ‘straddle or strangle’.

ATM Premium Calculator

An ATM premium calculator is a tool I use to estimate the premium of an ATM option. It takes into account various factors such as the underlying asset’s price, the option’s expiry date, and the risk-free interest rate. This tool is invaluable in helping me assess potential trades.

ATM Premium Example

Let’s consider a real-world example. Suppose the current market price of an Index is Rs.100. An option with a strike price of Rs.100 would be considered ATM. If the premium for this option is Rs.5, then as a buyer, I would need to pay Rs.5 to purchase this option. As a seller, I would receive this Rs.5 as income.
