Profit + Loss Calculator

Try this tool

Chart the profit and loss potential of your trades, before you place them. Or, study the profit and loss potential of your existing positions.

An integrated options chain allows you to choose a single option or multiple legs for more advanced strategies. Input your trade and watch as the Profit + Loss Calculator shows the potential profit and loss for your entire strategy in a simple line graph format.

Slide your pointer over the graph, and you'll see how your profits or losses change as the underlying price moves higher or lower. The sliders at bottom let you see how your profitability and targets would likely change based on adjustments in volatility and time until expiration.

The Profit +Loss Calculator is one of our most popular tools. Once you integrate it into your options trading strategy, you'll see why.
