Abstract

Market makers play a critical role in guaranteeing smooth functionality
of option markets. I will talk about their role, and explain why
trading options is not a zero-sum game. Specifically, I will discuss
how options allow both investors and their counterparties - typically
market makers - to realize profits from the same trade.
