(Distance
from Stock)
The difference between the strike price and the stock price, as a percentage of the stock price. For example, if the strike price is $110 and the stock price is $100, this would be +10% (in-the-money). If the strike price is $95, this would be -5% (out-of-the-money).

The stock price at which the strategy breaks even. If the stock is below this price, the strategy will have a positive return. If it is above this price, it will lose money.

About Historical Distributions

We compile an interval-based historical price return distribution for the underlying stock

If there are 20 days to go until expiration, we go back historically and look at intervals with a 20-day holding period for changes in stock price

If there is an earnings date coming up before expiration, we look at only those historical periods that included an earnings date

Similarly, if there is no earnings date before expiration, we look at only historical periods without earnings

We use those intervals to calculate a theoretical value for the strategy based on those historical changes in stock price

Theoretical Edge:

Using the historical distribution, we calculate a theoretical value of the current strategy based on these past changes in stock price.

To determine the edge, we take that value and compare it to the current market price of the strategy.

Theoretical Win Rate

Using the historical distribution, win rate represents the percentage of these historical observations where the current strategy would have resulted in a positive return (given the observed change in stock price over the specified holding period).

Dynamic IV Range Modeling

For the historical distribution, we've implemented a new model utilizing dynamic implied volatility ranges to narrow results around the symbol's current volatility environment. The implied volatility (IV30) is recorded at the start of each historical interval. We only select the 50% of historical observations where the IV30 at the time of the observation is the closest to the current IV30 -- 25% above and 25% below.

This way, if the current IV30 is exceptionally high or exceptionally low, we are focusing only on other historical observations that showed similar volatility.

We only utilize this method if we can ensure at least 16 observations. Otherwise, we continue to use all historical observations, as was the case prior to this method being applied.

About Historical Seasonality

We look at seasonal changes in stock price for up to the last 12 years (with a minimum of 8 years)

If today is May 1 and the option expires May 20, we look at the stock's price change for each year from May 1 to May 20

It finds the start and end value of the stock price for those date ranges, and calculates statistics from it

We use those values to calculate the average return and % positive observations for the stock over those results
