Ranker Calculation – Upside Protection

The percent move up that the underlying can make until the trade begins to show a loss at expiration. The nearest expiration is used for the basis of calculation for time spreads. Note a value of 100% signifies no losses to the upside, while a value >100% (very rare) signifies a break-even at greater than double the underlying price.
