You will see higher-priced option premiums on options with high volatility. On the other hand, implied volatility decreases with a lesser demand and when the underlying stock has a negative outlook. You will see higher-priced option premiums on options with high volatility, and cheaper premiums with low volatility.
It depends on the price of the underlying asset and the amount of time left in the contract. The deeper a contract is in the money, the more the premium rises. Conversely, if the option loses intrinsic value or goes further out of the money, the premium falls.
Option premium - The total amount you have paid to purchase options. This value will be negative if you have received funds for shorting/writing options.
Generally, the delta is the highest for an in-the-money call option and it will be close to 1 while it will be closer to 0 in case of out-of-the-money call option. Effectively, call options will have a positive delta while put options will have a negative delta.

A relatively conservative investor might opt for a call option strike price at or below the stock price, while a trader with a high tolerance for risk may prefer a strike price above the stock price. Similarly, a put option strike price at or above the stock price is safer than a strike price below the stock price.
A high volatility indicates fear, uncertainty and wild extended swings in either directions (generally on the bearish side) in the markets. If you are an option buyer then a high Implied Volatility is fantastic for you as it increases the option price as they are a function of volatility.
High IV (or Implied Volatility) affects the prices of options and can cause them to swing more than even the underlying stock. Just like it sounds, implied volatility represents how much the market anticipates that a stock will move, or be volatile.
The "customary" implied volatility for these options is 30 to 33, but right now buying demand is high and the IV is pumped (55). If you want to buy those options (strike price 50), the market is $2.55 to $2.75 (fair value is $2.64, based on that 55 volatility).
Options that have high levels of implied volatility will result in high-priced option premiums. Conversely, as the market's expectations decrease, or demand for an option diminishes, implied volatility will decrease. Options containing lower levels of implied volatility will result in cheaper option prices.
If a stock has an implied volatility of 100%, that means over the course of a year, the stock is projected to double in price or go to zero.
A negative premium would imply that a trader is willing to pay you to buy an option. If so, buy it, knowing fully well that the subsequent cash flow will either be positive or nil. Consequently, this is a clear case or arbitrage.

There is no limit.
The rule of thumb here is the higher the delta is, the more likely it is the option ends up profitable. Out-of-the-money options have the lowest delta, while in-the-money options have the highest delta. So you'd want to avoid the out-of-the-money option that has the delta of 0.04 like the plague.
A higher Gamma indicates accelerated option value changes when the stock moves up or down by $1.00. This will in return, accelerate profits for a long position and also accelerate losses.
Generally speaking, traders look to buy an option when the implied volatility is low, and look to sell an option (or consider a spread strategy) when implied volatility is high. Implied volatility is determined mathematically by using current option prices and the Binomial option pricing model.
