Option Projection Tool

The projection tool provides the capability to calculate option or option spread values based on complex price and volatility moves. The user can project up or down movements in both the underlying prices and option volatility at various points. As each move is entered by the user, the option value is re-calculated to match the projected underlying price and option volatility.

The Projection tool is designed to project option or option spread values over various changes in both the underlying price and option volatility as selected by the user.

Advanced Volatility Adjustments

As you change the volatility, both legs are changed by the same increments separately.

The advanced volatility trader can also edit the implied volatility for each leg individually.

For an example, you can change front month volatility to be projected up then down towards expiration. The back month volatility can be projected flat and then upwards towards expiration as typically anticipated for a calendar call spread.
