coveredPutExpirationValueVT {bearishTrader} R Documentation

## Calculates Value/Payoff at expiration per share or unit of the underlying for Covered Put and draws its graph in the Plots tab.

### Description

A covered put is the bearish equivalent of a covered call. It is achieved by short-selling the underlying stock and writing an equivalent put against it. By writing a put against a short sale, the trader is now in the position to buy the stock, if exercised, when the market price fell below the put’s strike price. The covered put writer is, in effect, forgoing the opportunity to participate in the decrease in stock price under the strike price in exchange for premium received for selling the put for the same (Kakushadze & Serur, 2018).

### Usage

coveredPutExpirationValueVT(
ST,
X,
P,

xlab = "Spot Price ($) at Expiration", ylab = " Value / Payoff [ VT ] at Expiration ($)",
main = "Covered Put / Married Put [ VT]"
)

S0 Initial Stock Price. hl lower bound value for setting lower-limit of x-axis displaying spot price. hu upper bound value for setting upper-limit of x-axis displaying spot price. xlab X-axis label. ylab Y-axis label. main Title of the Graph.

### Details

According to conceptual details given by Cohen (2015), and a closed-form solution provided by Kakushadze and Serur (2018), this method is developed, and the given examples are created, to compute Value/Payoff at expiration per share or unit of the underlying for Covered Put and draw its graph in the Plots tab. EXAMPLE, Short HypoGamma stock at $20.00 (inflow) and short HypoGamma December 18 call at$2.00 (inflow). Selling HypoGamma stock and writing the HypoGamma December 18 put. As the price of HypoGamma is currently $20, the investor has an opportunity to profit from a decline in the stock from$20 to the strike price of \$18. By writing the 18 put, the investor has given up the right to participate in any decline in the stock below this level. Graph shows that the risk that can be incurred is uncapped because, theoretically, the price of HypoGamma stock could rise to any extent (infinity).

### Value
