Option Pricing Calculator - Aussie Stock Forums

1. ## Option Pricing Calculator

Does anyone use an option pricing calculator? Or are you just guessing? I use this one but the market maker never gives it to me anyway

Any other ones out there?

What are you doing with options if you don't know these value :-)
you also missed implied volatility.

Price = current stock price
Strike = Strike price ...price you agree to buy/sell regardless of the underlying stock price
Day to expiration = how long your options contracts got till it expire
Dividend = Dividend amount paid
First Dividend Date = Stock first ex-dividend date

Dont mess with options if you don't understand it.... it is a derivatives with consequences.

You haven't attend to one of those seminars or saw those TV ads where they advertise you can generate income from options or make big bucks have you ?
