Description of Visual Options Analyzer program from developer(s):
Visual Stock Options Analyzer (VOptions) is a powerful analysis tool for development, testing, and application of stock and options strategies. Its easy-to-use interface allows you to test new strategies, manage a growing portfolio, and explore "what-if" scenarios with ease. VOptions versatility and power make it suitable for new, experienced, or advanced traders alike.
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 analysing 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.
