Futures Risk Calculator
A few days ago I started to look around for a good risk calculator for the futures market to use as a template for you CrazyIvan subs playing the ZB futures. Much to my surprise I found absolutely nothing worth a cent. Sure, as expected I ran into the usual bucketshop type lures preying on trading noobs and promising some silly Excel sheet in exchange for signing up for their services (with a constant flow of spam almost guaranteed). In the end I didn’t come across one decent online risk calculator that covered more than some basic calculations that most of us can do in our heads.
So as so often I had to roll up my sleeves and write my own. Scott had mentioned to me that the basic calculation was pretty trivial but as I dug into it deeper I realized that it’s actually a pretty complex task, especially if you want to support other account currencies. In the end it took me most of the weekend to get it to the point where I would actually use it myself. Lo and behold below the fruits of my work – feel free to kick the tires a bit and if you’re missing a favorite contract please let me know and I’ll add it. And if you find anything buggy with it I want to know as well of course. Have fun!
