How to Use the Options Profit Calculator

Our Options Profit Calculator is designed to help traders quickly assess the potential outcomes of their options trades. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Select Your Strategy: Choose the type of options strategy you’re planning to execute. For example, “Long Call”.
  2. Enter the Stock Symbol: Input the ticker symbol for the stock you’re interested in, like “AAPL”.
  3. Current Price: Fill in the current trading price of the stock.
  4. Strike Price: Enter the price at which the option will be exercised.
  5. Option Price: Input the cost of the option itself.
  6. Contracts: Specify the number of contracts you wish to calculate.
  7. Calculate: Click the calculate button to see your estimated returns.

Once calculated, you’ll see a detailed breakdown of your trade, including entry cost, maximum risk, maximum return, return on risk, and breakeven points.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: What does ‘Maximum risk’ mean? A: ‘Maximum risk’ refers to the total amount you could potentially lose if the trade doesn’t go in your favor. It’s the total cost of purchasing the options contracts.

Q: How is ‘Breakeven at expiry’ calculated? A: The breakeven point is calculated by adding the strike price and the option price. For a long call, the stock price needs to rise above this point for you to start making a profit.

Q: What does ‘Maximum return: infinite’ indicate? A: This means that if the stock price rises significantly, your earnings could be unlimited on the upside since there’s no cap on how high a stock price can go.
