Can AI be Used for Options Trading?

It already is every day. AI is particularly well-suited for options trading due to its ability to process vast amounts of options price data, identify patterns, epistemically regularize, and make predictions in a repeatable way. Helium Trades harnesses the power of AI to optimize options trading strategies, providing relail traders with a significant edge in their portfolios.

How Does Helium’s Strategy Work?

Helium’s strategy for short volatility involves selling an at-the-money (ATM) option and buying multiple out-of-the-money (OOTM) options to hedge. This approach is designed to capitalize on the time decay of the sold option while protecting against significant market moves with the hedged positions.

“Helium Trades combines the best of both worlds by selling rich options while over-hedging with low delta options, thus optimizing for a favorable risk-reward balance.”

The rationale behind this strategy is rooted in supply and demand dynamics. By selling ATM options, traders can benefit from the premium decay, which is typically accelerated due to the higher implied volatility (and ATM options have the highest theta usually). Meanwhile, the OOTM options serve as a protective measure, providing a cushion against unexpected market swings.

Example: Suppose you sell a 30-day ATM call option on a stock trading at $100, receiving a premium of $5. Simultaneously, you purchase two 30-day OOTM call options with strike prices of $110, each costing $1. This setup provides you with a net credit of $3 while limiting your downside risk if the stock makes a significant upward move. If the price remains below your short strike of $100 you keep your credit.

Moreover, Helium’s strategy employs a multifaceted approach that includes:

  • High Convexity and Reward:Risk: Optimizing for potential acceleration in the value of the option relative to the underlying asset’s price.

  • Market Expected Value: Using conservative assumptions to maximize the expected terminal value of each position based on market prices and Black-Scholes probabilities.

  • Helium Expected Value: Employing regularized machine learning models to forecast and maximize the expected terminal value of each trade.

  • Minimizing Time Decay: Reducing the carrying cost of long options by minimizing theta decay.

  • Helium vs. Market Uncertainty: Identifying underlyings with potentially under-priced risk by comparing market and Helium uncertainty levels.

  • Cost Efficiency: Optimizing for cheaper options/spreads to minimize potential maximum loss.

  • Long Trade Duration: Focusing on options with longer expiration to allow more time for significant underlying moves.

  • Maximum Option Lifetime Value: Predicting and maximizing the highest price over the option's lifetime for the long leg while minimizing it for the short leg.

  • AI Price Forecasts: Weighting call options higher on bullish stocks and put options higher on bearish stocks based on machine learning forecasts.

  • Low Implied Volatility Rank (IVR): Seeking assets with lower IV to exploit potential IV expansion.

  • High Liquidity: Prioritizing trades with tighter bid-ask spreads to enhance execution efficiency.

  • Historical Performance: Relying on models with a historically high risk-adjusted return.

  • Selling High IV & Buying Low IV: Optimizing for selling options with higher implied volatility and buying options with lower implied volatility.

Is AI Better at Trading Than Humans?

AI has several advantages over human traders, including the ability to analyze large datasets quickly and without psychological biases, identify statistical and testable patterns, and execute trades rationally without emotional bias. However, the best results are often achieved when AI is used to augment human decision-making. Helium Trades provides the tools and insights that allow traders to leverage AI while maintaining control over their portfolios.

What is the Best AI Trading Platform?

The best AI trading platform depends on your specific needs and trading style. However, Helium Trades is highly regarded for its comprehensive suite of tools + daily updated strategies, user-friendly interface, and powerful AI-driven analysis. Our platform is designed to cater to both novice and experienced traders, providing the insights and automation needed to succeed whatever the current market is pricing.

How to Build AI for Trading?

Building AI for trading involves multiple key steps:

  1. Data Collection: Gather historical and daily market + options data, including prices, volumes, news data with bias analysis, and fundamental indicators.
  2. Data Preprocessing: Clean, normalize, and regularize the data to ensure it is suitable for analysis and modeling.
  3. Feature Engineering: Create relevant features that can be used to predict market movements, such as technical indicators, historical prices, news data, trends, and sentiment scores.
  4. Model Selection: Choose appropriate machine learning models, such as decision stumps with boosting.
  5. Training and Validation: Train the models on historical data and validate their performance using a separate dataset to reduce the likelihood of overfitting (just cheating to memorize the data).
  6. Backtesting: Test the models on historical data to evaluate their performance and robustness across multiple statistical tests.
  7. Deployment: Implement the models in a live trading environment, integrating them with trading platforms and execution algorithms.
  8. Monitoring and Maintenance: Continuously monitor the model's performance and make adjustments as needed to ensure optimal results while continuously rebalancing your portfolio.
