OPTIONPEER™ is a Microsoft
Windows compatible program that graphically displays how your option investment
strategy works with changes in the stock or market index price, over a range of
time. It has simple dialogs forms that guide you through data entry, and
provides graphs and tables of your investment that provide quick, intuitive
displays of an investments potential and pitfalls (take a screen tour below).
The program will work in Windows 95, 98, 98-SE/ME, and NT 3.51 & 4.0. The program
has several analytical modes:
|Evaluate a put or call option on different dates to display time and price changes;
|Compare the behavior of up to three put or call options your choice on any date;
|Look at a portfolio of up to four options that work in combination with an underlying security or index, to understand the more advanced concepts of hedging (covered in advanced lessons of OptionTutor);
|Estimate the option volatility parameter based on the current market price;
|For a change in market outlook (volatility bias) for a stock, observe the effects on the related option price.
In the first three modes above, you can also include the effects of a diversified portfolio balance, and a position in the underlying stock or index.
