The Options Pricing Calculator is a free App that allows users to price options using a "what-if" type analysis. The calculator allows users to input the underlying price of a security, the striking price of an options, the number of days to expiration and other necessary inputs. The output displays not only the theoretical price for both calls and puts using those assumptions, but also the array of associated Greek values for each side of the equation. Use the calculator to make changes to any of the input fields to learn the impact on the price of an option.
The Options Strategies Widget allows investors to view the profit-and-loss profiles of an array of option combinations that might help in their understanding of option and stock trading. The Widget is a free downloadable tool and can be used by investors wishing to understand better how to use options and options combinations to speculate on an underlying security or to hedge against an adverse movement in a security they currently own. The user can select from a series of drop down menus to isolate bullish or bearish movements in the price of an underlying security or could select a strategy that would perhaps benefit under a period of either rising or falling market or security specific volatility.
