    Why don't you use pen and paper to figure out what your max loss would be and see if it returns $10 or w/e it is on that chart also.
  4. you clearly have never traded options :D

    If you want any feedback, you may want to post some details of the position (you don't have to disclose the underlying).

    Just a thought.

    you legged into a straddle?
  7. this position is most likely a short fly where the wings were legged into @ good prices due to delta or vega exposure. IOW, position could initially have been a long ATm straddle with the wings sold when the stock moves up or downthe line or wings sold after an IV explosion. Hence there is very little below the loss line.

    The weird check mark on the put side could be some skipped strikes
