How It Works & Screenshots

Select option strategy in the dropdown box (see list of all 54 strategies included):

If you are analysing a specific trade, you can enter strikes, position sizes and initial prices in the yellow cells. If you don’t have specific prices in mind and just want to explore a new strategy, example strikes and prices will be loaded automatically.

To explore a particular price area in more detail, you can easily adjust the chart’s scale by clicking on the buttons:

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it a one-time payment or monthly/recurring?
One-time payment, yours forever.

Does it work in my version of Excel?
The calculator works in all versions of Excel from Excel 97 to Excel 2016. It was developed in Excel 2010 and tested in other versions. For older versions you may need to use a different version of the calculator, which is also included.

Does it work in OpenOffice / LibreOffice / Apple Numbers / other spreadsheet software?
It may work in some, but unfortunately we can’t guarantee it and can’t provide support for software other than Microsoft Excel. Generally you need your software to support Excel formulas and macros.

How do I pay? Is it secure?
You can pay by credit/debit card or PayPal. All payments are processed by PayPal, which provides world-class security and buyer protection. You don’t need a PayPal account to check out when paying with a card.

I have other questions / need more information.
