## Calculates per share Profit and Loss (PnL) at expiration for Long Call Butterfly Option Strategy and draws its Bar Plot displaying PnL in the Plots tab.

### Description

This is a volatility strategy consisting of a long position in an ITM (in the money) call option with a strike price $X1L, short positions in two ATM ( at the money) call options with a strike price $X, and a long position in an OTM (out of the money) call option with a strike price $X3H. The strikes are equidistant: $X3H minus $X equals to $X minus $X1L (Kakushadze & Serur, 2018).

### Usage

```
longCallbutterfly(
ST,
X,
X1L,
X3H,
C,
C1L,
C3H,
hl = 0,
hu = 2,
spot = spot,
pl = pl,
myData = myData,
myTibble = myTibble,
PnL = PnL
)
```
