Instructions for using the Black Scholes formula
Black-Scholes or Black-Scholes-Merton model is a mathematical model applied to the pricing of a number of financial products, typically European-style options. The model was put forward by Fischer Black and Myron Scholes in their 1973 paper, “The Pricing of Options and Corporate Liabilities”, published in the Journal of Political Economy.
This is a classic model based on the probabilities of market movements to give put and call options prices.
Step 1: Select the base currency and select the price range to calculate.
Selecting a Call or Put Position
Step 2: Fill in the current price of that underlying asset.
Set the level of volatility
Select prices and see the results.
Step 3: Read the result table
The resulting table shows the respective price scenarios corresponding to changes in the price and volatility of the underlying asset.
For example, the suggested price for a Call Option order is $72.95 with an expiration date of September 16, 2022.
The current ETH price is 1618.4.
The assumed volatility is 115%.
In case the price does not change but volatility increases to 10% (of 115%), i.e., 126.5, the option premium will be 111.87.
In case the price of ETH decreases by 10%, 1436 $ and the volatility decreases by 10%, the price will be $33.25.
There is a case where the ETH price is falling but volatility is changing dramatically; for example, if the price is down 10% but volatility is up 10%, the proposed option price is 114.7%.
For options investors, the most important and key indicator of option premiums is VOL volatility. Therefore, using the pricer tool is an easy way for investors to research and make decisions about placing/choosing the price/premium in accordance with their strategy.
