The black line shows the P&L, which is the sum of the P&L for the short stock and the short put positions. In this example, if the stock price stays below the short put strike price of $128, the position will net $755 per contract. The underlying security price will have to rise $7.95 before the position starts to lose money.

The green triangle break even displays the approximate break-even point. General Help with the calculator can be found here.
