Understanding and Analyzing Risk & Reward with a Stock Option Calculator

Stock options have become an essential tool in creating an attractive financial portfolio. Investing in equity options requires a proper knowledge and understanding of the risks associated with each trade. This can be a complex and daunting prospect, but with the help of a Stock Option Calculator it is much simpler.

What are Stock Options

Stock options are contracts that give the buyer the right, but not the obligation to buy or sell shares of an underlying stock at a pre-determined price on a determined date in the future. Generally, an investor buys a stock option to hedge their risks and maximize returns. While stock options are attractive, they are high-value trades that require investing a large amount of money and therefore comes with a high amount of risk.

Option Pricing

Option pricing is the process of finding out the most profitable option that provides the best returns with the least amount of risk. This requires taking into account of various factors like the time to expiration, current market price, implied volatility and the price of the underlying stock. The Option Premium calculator can help you find out the Black-Scholes target premium of a call and put options with a few simple inputs.

Option Analysis

Option Analysis plays a vital role in understanding and analyzing the risks associated with trading equity options.This involves calculating profit and loss of a trade, taking into account factors such as the cost to purchase the option, any commissions paid and implicit fees. The Binomial Option Pricing Model Excel helps you determine theoretical option prices and the associated risks of the trade by using inputs such as the values ofstrike price, expiration date, current stock price and associated dividends.

Retirement Planning & Financial Planning

Options trading is most often used by investors during retirement planning, portfolio diversification and financial planning. Trading can offer a steady stream of income and even increase your nest egg but future performance is difficult to predict. Proper understanding of volatility and other associated risks can help manage portfolio risk and make better investment decisions.
