Greensky Inc Greeks

Most traded equities are subject to two types of risk - systematic (i.e., market) and unsystematic (i.e., nonmarket or company-specific) risk. Unsystematic risk is the risk that events specific to Greensky Inc or Technology sector will adversely affect the stock's price. This type of risk can be diversified away by owning several different stocks in different industries whose stock prices have shown a small correlation to each other. On the other hand, systematic risk is the risk that Greensky Inc stock's price will be affected by overall stock market movements and cannot be diversified away. So, no matter how many positions you have, you cannot eliminate market risk. However, you can measure a Greensky stock's historical response to market movements and buy it if you are comfortable with its volatility direction. Beta and standard deviation are two commonly used measures to help you make the right decision.

Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Greensky Inc's stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Greensky Inc's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

Greensky Inc Implied Volatility

On the other hand, the low implied volatility suggests that Greensky Inc stock will not fluctuate a lot when Greensky Inc's options are near their expiration.
