GEX measures the impact of market maker hedging activity on the derivative market, positive GEX readings indicate suppressed volatility, while negative readings exacerbate volatility. This metric can be used to anticipate changes in trading ranges and potential market reversals.

GEX often aligns with options expiration cycles and can be used to track changes in volatility or market direction. He emphasizes that while GEX is not a directional call, it can be used to predict potential market shifts and guide trading decisions.

To use GEX+ effectively in your trading, follow these steps:

  1. Understand the concept of gamma exposure: Familiarize yourself with options trading and the concept of delta and gamma in the context of options. Delta measures the change in the option's price relative to the change in the underlying asset's price, while gamma measures the rate of change of delta.

  2. Monitor GEX+ readings: Positive GEX+ readings indicate that market makers are hedging their positions in a way that suppresses volatility by buying into dips and selling into rallies. In contrast, negative GEX+ readings suggest that hedging activity will exacerbate volatility by selling into dips and buying into rallies.

  3. Anticipate changes in trading ranges: When the GEX+ reading is positive, you can expect a smaller, tighter trading range in the market, whereas a zero or negative GEX+ reading indicates a larger, more volatile trading range. This information can help you adjust your trading strategy accordingly.

  4. Watch for potential market reversals: GEX+ can be useful for identifying potential market reversals, especially when it aligns with options expiration cycles. A sudden drop in GEX+ may indicate a change in market direction or an increase in volatility.

  5. Identify key strike zones and support/resistance levels: Analyze GEX+ data to identify key strike zones or inflection points in the market where support and resistance levels might come into play. This can help you make more informed decisions about when to enter or exit a trade.

Remember that GEX+ is not a directional call, but it can provide valuable insights into market behavior and potential shifts in volatility. Incorporating GEX+ into your trading strategy can help you make more informed decisions and improve your overall trading performance.

Ok thanks... explain it like I'm 5
