PlotKit - Javascript Chart Plotting | liquidx

I used PlotKit in my recent page on options payoff. You can look at the Javascript source code and see how to draw line charts with PlotKit. It also can be used to learn Options Trading strategies. The way to use it is to construct strategies with basic instruments: bonds, stocks and call and put options, then look at the payoff/profit graphs. For instance, the butterfly strategy is to purchase one call at lower strike price, one call at higher strike price and sell two calls exactly in the middle.
