The collar calculator and 20 minute delayed options quotes are provided by IVolatility, and NOT BY OCC. OCC makes no representation as to the timeliness, accuracy or validity of the information and this information should not be construed as a recommendation to purchase or sell a security, or to provide investment advice. For more information or help, please view our help files or contact our options professionals at 1-888-OPTIONS (1-888-678-4667).
The traditional collar strategy is generally implemented by using out-of-the-money options. Therefore users of the Collar Calculator must input out-of-the-money call and put strikes. For testing any “non-traditional” collar strategies, we suggest using our Position Simulator.
