Key Features of Visual Options Analyzer:
- Advanced Charting Capabilities
Visual Options Analyzer 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 effect 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.
- Automatic Data Download
VOptions downloads free options data from the CBOE (Chicago Board Options Exchange) for virtually all options
listed on the CBOE, AMEX (American Stock Exchange), PHLX (Philadelphia Stock Exchange), PCX or PSE
(Pacific Stock Exchange), and ISE (International Securities Exchange).
- Advanced Capabilities
VOptions enables you to build your own or to modify built-in strategies in two ways:
by changing theoretical terms (selecting ITM, ATM, or OTM options by steps, near-term or long-term options, etc.),
or by selecting option parameters from lists of downloaded option quotes (option chains).
VOptions also lets you export your portfolio data and charts directly into Microsoft Excel.
This allows you to easily share your portfolio information with colleagues and partners.
