Beta Weighting

With beta weighting from thinkorswim, you’ll never trade blind. Professional traders and money managers alike use this tool to understand potential gains and losses. Using any optionable stock or index as the common denominator, the beta weighting tool converts the deltas (sensitivity to price changes) of your individual positions into stock or index equivalent deltas for you. Now, you too can see your entire portfolio’s risk updated in real time as the markets change.
