Calculates the Value/Payoff per share at expiration for Protective Call and draws its graph in the Plots tab.

Description

This strategy is also known as married call or synthetic put or a protected short sale. It consists of a call purchase against a short sale of the underlying stock. An increase in the price of the stock over the strike price of the call will prompt the investor to exercise the right to buy the stock. As a result, the investor is protected against an increase in the stock price over the strike price (Kakushadze & Serur, 2018).

Usage
