Profit Range

A range of prices that an underlying security can possess in order for an investment strategy to be profitable. For some strategies, the position taken will have two break-even points. The range between these two points serves as the profit range for the strategy.

When designing a strategy, the profit range is a useful metric for investors when they compare it to the volatility of the underlying asset. It allows investors to match profit ranges with appropriate volatilities. Large ranges should be used with high volatility assets and vice versa. A mismatch of volatility and profit range tends to lead to a loss on the position.
