The Stock & ETF Simulator is your true crystal ball that looks into the future. The Simulator simulates the price action of a stock, commodity, ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) 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 of an option. This input provides valuable information to your options analysis. This is part of the highly acclaimed Option Master software available at GoOptions.com. 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 profit goal or stop-loss will be hit before expiration or within the time period set For example, if you have a profit goal of 65 on Exxon (XOM) when the XOM is at 60, what are the chances the profit goal will be touched before expiration in three months? The Simulator helps you answer that question. The Simulator tells you the percent of the time the profit goal would be hit before expiration, important information when trading. For option buyers or spreaders, if you set a profit goal or stop loss based on the underlying stock or commodity price, the Simulator will tell you your chances of reaching the profit goal or hitting the stop loss before expiration. This information is quite 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. This information is only possible with a simulator.
