Strategy builder SD calculation bug

Hi @admins,
The SD calculation seems off in strategy builder.

I created a PE calendar between Jan & Feb and this was the result

Just by looking at Breakevens which is ~1000 pts, it is clear that for 30 days to expiry 1000 point should be within 1SD range but here it is even going beyond 2SD, then I did some calculations and here is what the range should look like:

ATM IV: 15.5
Days to expiry (DTE): 30
Spot: 17992
SD = Spot X IV X Sqrt(DTE/365) = ~800
1SD Lower side = Spot - 1 X SD = 17192
1SD Upper side = Spot + 1 X SD = 18792
Total range for 1SD = 1600 points


Thanks @erankitjain. Think the graphs is shown by 1 Day to expiry, where you have considered DTE at 30. Will update this.

Thanks @PravinJ for quick response. Nonetheless 30 days to expiry is already shown on the options trader and the same should be reflected in the graph too, hope this gets fixed quickly :slight_smile:

Hi @PravinJ , any update on this?

Hello @erankitjain

Users do want to have SD calculation displayed on the chart as per their method of analysis. We have noted this and working to enable a more dynamic approach to SD on PayOff chart. For the time being, it is configured for 1 day SD only.

so it’s not made keeping positional traders in mind and will remain intraday trader friendly for time being. got it.

Also , seeing too many numbers after point in the Strategy Builder and Analyser

Kindly fix this
