For making a decision about opening a position on the options market, an investor in most cases has to estimate such a parameter as internal volatility. Graphical presentation of volatility distribution for an option with a given expiration date dependent on strike is used as an instrument for comparative analysis of volatility.The module allows prompt reaction to price imbalance and gives an opportunity to simultaneously monitor data for all strikes on one scale due to ‘volatility expression’ of options prices.
Development of option strategies
The module allows analyzing strategies for simultaneous opening of positions with one-series options and an underlying instrument, calculating all required indicators for the joint position and using functionality of a standard options calculator.
There is a possibility of graphical analysis of a complex option position in terms of its profitability depending on the price of an underlying instrument, number of days till expiration or volatility. Changing the model parameters – the price of the base asset, volatility, a risk-free rate, the date of calculations – one can get various scenarios.

There is a possibility of loading a definite strategy using a pattern, and further setting of the strategy in accordance with parameters of selected instruments and their current market parameters.
