This chapter surveys the methods available for extracting forward-looking information from option prices. We consider volatility, skewness, kurtosis, and density forecasting. More generally, we discuss how any forecasting object which is a twice differentiable function of the future realization of the underlying risky asset price can utilize option implied information in a well-defi?ned manner. Going beyond the univariate option-implied density, we also consider results on option-implied covariance, correlation and beta forecasting as well as the use of option-implied information in cross-sectional forecasting of equity returns.
