Advanced Charting Capabilities
VOptions lets you make a thorough analysis of a trade
before you call your broker. The software provides powerful two
and three-dimensional charts for analyzing option strategies. The
3D Chart can simultaneously show the relationship between stock
price and expiration date versus profit/loss. You can rotate the
chart and zoom in on areas of interest. A "zone view" is also provided
that displays an overhead view of the chart.
The 2D Chart is designed for dynamic analysis, complete with
a "Slider" that lets you vary parameters such as stock price, volatility,
days until expiration, and interest rate as well as view the resulting
animation) on prices and profit/loss for your portfolio. You
can see how your trade will perform over a range of projected prices.
Built-in Options Strategies
VOptions software has 32 of the most popular and effective
options strategies built-in. Just select a strategy and VOptions
will download options and stock data and generate profit/loss charts
for your inspection. You can then visually evaluate the potential
risks and return of a strategy. Whenever you change strategies or
vary parameters, such as risk-free interest rate or stock volatility,
the charts will be redrawn immediately. This allows you to conduct
easily a "what-if" analysis of any particular strategy. You can
use one of three option pricing models: Black-Scholes, Binominal
European and Binominal American.
