The Stock and Commodity Simulator is your true crystal ball that looks into the future. The Simulator simulates the price action of a stock, commodity, index or futures over a set period of time into the future. The Simulator will tell you what percent of the time your predetermined target will be hit before the expiration date. This input provides valuable information to your options analysis. Option MasterÆ does provide a Probability of Profit number. But this number is the probability of profit at expiration, not during the time period before expiration.

The Simulator tells you if a target price is hit during the time period before expiration. Here is an excellent way to determine what are the chances that a stop-loss will be hit or what are the odds that a profit goal will be reached before expiration.

For example, if you have a stop-loss on the S & P 100 Index (OEX) at 950 when the OEX is at 920, what are the chances the stop-loss will be touched before expiration in three months? Option Master's probability of profit tells you the chances that the OEX will be at or above 950 at expiration but does not but tell you the chances that the stop-loss will be touched before expiration. The Simulator helps you answer that question. The Simulator tells you the percent of the time the stop loss of 950 would be hit before expiration, much more important information when trading.

For option buyers or spreaders, if you set a profit goal based on the underlying stock or commodity, Option MasterÆ can again tell you your chances of profiting if you hold the option or spread until expiration.  But the Simulator will tell you more. It will tell you your chances of reaching the profit goal before expiration. This information is far more valuable in determining whether you have a good play. In some cases, the chances of hitting a profit goal during the life of the option are much higher than if you hold until expiration.

Our winning philosophy for the options game:


  •     Buy cheap, underpriced options (our pricing tables show you how to find the underpriced options).
  •     Don't go overboard; play the options game with a small portion of your investment money, a speculative cash pool that you can put at risk and still sleep at night.
  •     Beware of high expectations; if you expect to make big money immediately, you're in for trouble.
  •     Have a game plan; plan to buy a certain number of options every month, invest in calls and puts, buy only cheap, underpriced options that are close to their strike price, buy options that have plenty of time left in them, consider other pricing factors (supply and demand, liquidity, interest rates) when you can.
  •     Try playing on paper first; get a feeling for what can happen before you put your money and your adrenaline levels on the line.
  •     You can get started without much cash, as little as $300 - $500, if you have a good game plan and you stick to it.
  •     Learn and remember the basic rules of probability (we cover them); our system will still produce losing streaks and you have to be psychologically prepared to deal with that.

Not glamorous or filled with glowing promises, but it makes sense in light of what most options investors have learned the hard way.
