Using the Expected Move

The current expected move is overlayed on your position. This can help guide you, as it indicates how the options market is now pricing the future of that stock.

In the example above, the bearish expected move line indicates that prevailing option prices anticipate that the stock will remain above the break-even price, implying a reduced likelihood of max loss low (but of course still possible). Using probability of profit and the expected move can help cut through the noise and focus on the math.
