    • Can you tell me which stock?.

      While I calculate EOD IVs using the data disseminated by NSE at EOD. The one on this page is done using prices on option chain. If they vary, you can see some difference.

      You get 1 SD & 2 SD on the pay-off graph itself.

  2. Hi Raghunath,
    I tried with Biocon, Sintex, Cummins and Infy. For few lot of difference was there. Which IV to be considered for the accuracy?
    It would be great if the values of 1SD and 2 SD showed in the pay-off chart or down in the table. Thanks

    • There s certain issue with the EOD data supplied by NSE. Some prices of options are weird causing this effect. The IV on the options builder will be most accurate as it is current taken directly from options chain. I will fix this issue soon.

      1SD & 2SD are already shown in the pay-off chart.

  3. Hi Rajhunath,

  7. Hi ,

    As i have refereed to so many books and i found in order to calculate the IV we need the followings .

    Strike Price
    Spot Price
    Risk Free Rate
    Dividend
    Time to expiry
    And option Premium for the particular strike price

    Is there any formula available to estimate the IV(Implied Volatility ) with out the option premium .

    Highly appreciated if some can help me out .

      • Ok ! However if any one want to calculate the IV what are the variable required ? . and other thing i have noticed in the Option Builder IV for particular stirke is not matching with the IV mentioned on the NSE ( For An example for Strike of 9750 CR on 01-10-2017 @ NSE site was 7.25 however in the Option Builder its showing 12.51 and for almost every strike CE & Put the IV is mismatching ) Can you please clarify .

        Thankyou !

        • I calculate the IV little bit differently from NSE who use a little bit dated calculation. They use spot price, I use future price to calculate IV. Future price captures interest rates, dividends etc to reflect an accurate IV.

          If you have gone through the site link that I gave you would have known what variables are needed to calculate the IV.

  11. Hi Raghunath,
    Will be obliged if you cud just elaborate on the positional greeks that is getting displayed on the Option builder tool..Does the display change everyday for my position? How do we go about interpreting the net effect of the these greeks on the position value? Do we hv to keep an eye on all the greeks or any one or more of them in particular?
    No doubt..the tool is a very valuable one for the traders.
    Thanks for the great service…

    • NSE option chain for Nifty & BankNifty is empty after 3:30PM these days. So its not working. I’m looking at other alternative sources to make it work.

  13. HI..Raghunath.Thanks for your support for other option traders.I am planning to take positions based on Options Algorithm tool. The tool is generating strategies based on EOD data.But if i take the positions in next day morning there will be some gap up or gap down will be there.So spot price is varying.Then how to take positions using that tool?
    What are the parameters you considered while creating the tool?

    • This tool use latest data from NSE option chain with may be a 5 min delay. This is only for analysis. I can’t help if stock moves fast in 5 mins.
