Award Winning Options Software

None of us would pay $50 for an ordinary loaf of bread. We know it isn. t reasonable. Yet when it comes to options, unschooled investors willingly pay any price asked. Price is the most important element of success in the options game. You must be able to decide whether an option is truly a bargain. The biggest options winners consider price above all other factors. That includes professional options traders who use pricing formulas all the time. They always watch for underpriced or overpriced options. To compete, you need a pricing formula that gives you an insider. s edge.

Option Master® is the answer. Option Master® gives an insider. s edge even to novice traders. It is based on hundreds of hours of research and computer-simulated options trading. Option Master® uses some of the most successful pricing formulas available to give you the edge in the options game.

Option Master® puts a host of option pricing tables and successful option trading strategies at your fingertips. By making a few simple entries prompted by the computer, you can use Option Master® to determine the true value of options on any stock, index, commodity or futures contract.

With Option Master®, you do not need a modem to access an expensive mainframe or to download data via satellite. You get all the information needed from the options listing in any major newspaper.

 Know Your Chances of Winning

Perhaps the most valuable feature of Option Master® is that it tells you your odds of winning before you enter any position.

With any version of Option Master®, you trade with confidence because the program tells you the probability of profit. Imagine the emotional edge you. ll gain by knowing beforehand you have an 80% chance of winning on a given position or strategy.

 Features Found on Every Version 

of OPTION MASTER®:

Option Master® Deluxe Just $249!

(Available only for WINDOWSTM)  

PALM PILOT
version also

Option Master® Deluxe provides several new tools for options analysis. Many are only found on programs costing much, much more. These valuable tools include: Percent to Double measurement, flexible day trading sheets like those used on the floor of the exchanges, and a Stock and Commodity Simulator that simulates price action for stocks, indexes, futures or commodities.

Stock and Commodity Simulator. This is a crystal ball that simulates the price action of the underlying stock or commodity futures over a set period into the future. The Simulator can tell what percentage of the time your predetermined target will be hit before its expiration date. Unlike regular Option Master®, which provides a probability of profit at expiration, Option Master® Deluxe indicates the probability of a target price being hit at any time before expiration.

This is an extremely valuable tool because in some cases, the odds of hitting a profit goal during the life of an option are much greater than if you hold the option until expiration. The program allows you to set a high or low target price or both. The tool also works on spreads.

The Simulator assumes that the market is random. But if you have a strong opinion about the direction of a stock, index, or commodity, you influence the Simulator by setting a percentage of upward or downward bias.

Percent to Double. This feature helps you quickly measure how much a stock, index or commodity futures must move for the option to double in price. If it has to move too far, you know to pass on that play.

Stop-Loss Estimator. Stop-losses are especially critical to option writers and traders who use spreads. This feature helps you protect your investment by letting you know the best time to get out!

Profit Goal Estimator. This tool helps traders decide when to take profits. It determines what price the stock or futures will hit 50% of the time. If the projected profit isn. t big enough, you can rethink your position or strategy.

Day Trading Sheets. Just like those used by traders on the floors of the exchanges, these allow you to trade without a computer in front of you. Ideal if you are away from home or just need to do some quick analysis.
