Construct and Analyze Your Option Positions
The VectorVest Options Analyzer has an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. Create a simple option position based on current stock information and option expiration date, construct your own composite option trades, or use one of the built-in trades. The Options Analyzer offers 10 different analysis graphs to show you how changing a stock’s price and time to expiration affects your option position. You can also use the Price Probability Analyzer to evaluate the theoretical probability of the stock’s price performance.

What are Your Chances?
The Options Analyzer includes the Price Probability Analyzer. Based on historical price volatility, option expiration and current stock price, the Options Analyzer will calculate a theoretical probability that a stock’s price will be above, below, or between two variable price points that you define. Using the Price Probability Analyzer, you can determine whether or not the chances are good that you are going to make money, lose money, or break even on an option trade.
