## Calculates Profit and Loss (PnL) per share (or unit of the underlying) and Breakeven (BE)point at expiration for Covered Short Strangle and draws its graph in the Plots tab.

### Description

This strategy amounts to augmenting a covered call by writing an OTM put option with a higher strike price (XL) and the same time to maturity (TTM) as the sold call option (whose strike price is XH) and thereby increasing the income. Breakeven (BE) point of Covered Short Strangle varies depending on the relationship between the stock price, premiums received, and the strikes (Kakushadze & Serur, 2018).

### Usage

```
coveredShortStrangle(
ST,
XH,
XL,
CXH,
PXL,
S0,
hl = 0,
hu = 1.6,
xlab = "Spot Price ($) on Expiration",
ylab = "Profit / Loss [ PnL ] at Expiration ($)",
main = "Covered Short Strangle ",
