Best method for graphing multileg positions?

    I need a way to graph positions that will show me the situation on any day I choose--not just today or at expiration. I use IB, and I don't want to change my trading platform. Also, I'm not very techie, so I want something pretty simple, not something with ten thousand bells and whistles that will overwhelm me. Is there anything on the Web? I am willing to pay a fee if it's not too onerous.

    Use Optionetics Platinum.
  4. Last I checked, you can't get the full-up Platinum unless you're an Optionetics student. Instead you get the "Express" version for the same price a student pays for the real version.

    Another suggestion: open an account at thinkorswim (TOS). Their platform has a very nice multi-leg risk graph capability.
  5. Have you tried the Position Simulator at ? It's pretty nice, but the main limitation is that it only allows up to 4 legs.

    You can change the date to any date and change the volatility assumption on that date.

    Just go to that website and go to Advanced -> Position Simulator to try it out.

    One of the best thing about it I guess is that it is free. :)

    Wow, thanks, that's what I want! Free is the best price.

    is not correct

    Anyone can purchase
    any Platinum version they
    desire and you do not have
    to take a seminar

    Call Optionetics : 1-888-292-4751, M-F, 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
    Outside the US: 1-650-802-0700

    They will try to sell you Express
    but simply state you wish the full version

    Express is simply a 25% subset of the Full Platinum

    And it does everyting and more

  8. After communicating with Optionetics customer service a few months ago, I did not get the impression that this was an option.

    Thank you for the corrective haiku.

    They used to behave that way
    but things are changing

    If you get Express or have Express

    Right there on the Express Home
    page is a link


    and you can Upgrade to Regular
    Platinum online without
    having to make any calls
