Calculate price of an Option contract using Option Greeks

Post by Admin »

Interactive Brokers (IB) provides various Option Greek values and ArthaChitra duly displays those values. However the Greek values as provided by IB are annualized values. However for all practical purpose we would like to convert those annualized values in terms of price. ArthaChitra provides an easy solution to this and you can easily built a custom script to do it. For example, the attached DeltaChange Scanner user code will calculate what will be the price of the option contract, when its underlying will quote at a given price. The user script, here uses the annualized Delta values as provided by IB to calculate the projected price.

The below screenshot further demonstrates the user code in action.
