Generate ideas. Simulate market conditions. Calculate potential payouts.
Designed to serve the needs of lookalike option traders, Options Calculator provides users with the ability to see how common and/or customized lookalike options strategies might behave under various market scenarios.
Prepopulated strategies include:
Market Condition and Payout Simulations
This tool uses algorithmic technology to provide insight by modeling Bearish, Neutral, and Bullish market scenarios, and providing corresponding P&L and at-expiry payout charts for those simulated scenarios. These simulations can help mitigate uncertainty about how a strategy may behave under various market conditions. In addition, the ability to run endless scenarios and see how changes in strategy play out under different conditions can aid in both idea generation and self-education.
Share and Collaborate
Option Calculator’s Share Strategy function makes it easy to collaborate with your broker as you hone your approach. Use it to share strategies and vet them together using the simulation tool.
Move from Idea to Action
The one-click Quote Request function helps move pre-trade activity from idea generation and collaboration and action, so that you can get into the field fast and position yourself to get the most value from your strategies.
