One of our members sent an e-mail to me, explaining that he had just completed a trial of OptionVue but could not afford to buy the software at this time. He also explained that he had a limited understanding of option pricing and "the greeks," but that he wanted to trade options to generate a 1. This is the sort of question I receive on a sufficiently frequent basis that I decided to blog publicly about it.

First off, OptionVue has been around for many years and does a nice job but it is expensive. There are other analytic programs and services out there, however. For example, another way to go is to open an account with ThinkOrSwim and use their trading platform, which is very good and is essentially free if you have an account with them. Most of us wind up fiddling with a number of different programs until we find the one or two we settle in with.

As far the ambition of generating a 1. To do that consistently is going to take some real work, but I think it is a reasonable goal to set for one's self. The IV Histogram is an important first step in deciding how to apply the powerful Option Workbench filters to option profiles.

The Option Pricing Sheet The option pricing sheet is a unique display of option data similar to reports used by floor traders. It shows a matrix of rows containing option prices, implied volatility and Greeks grouped by strike price, and columns with calls and puts grouped by expiration dates. This layout allows you to view more data at a glance than the collapsible single-month layouts used by most broker pricing screens, accelerating your analyses and decisions.

You can use the most recent market data by editing the underlying price as well as each option price and implied volatility cell.

Doing so automatically recalculates the option Greeks. The Implied Volatility Chart This chart presents a graphical view of the implied volatility smile for each expiration date. It enables you to identify a potentially profitable skew at a glance. You can select what the chart shows, such as the range of low and high strikes and the IV that is charted — the call IV, the put IV or the average of the call and put IVs.

The Expected Return Calculator The expected return calculator is at the core of the risk analysis capabilities of Option Workbench.

Given a specific volatility profile, there are often many strategies that meet a given set of criteria. The expected return calculator gives you a formidable set of tools that enable you to compare and contrast different spreads with respect to potential profit and risk.

ONE automatically keeps track of all adjustments and commissions throughout the life of each position giving you the cummulative profit and loss figure, allowing you to concentrate on developing and then executing the best trading decisions.

Monitor all your option positions in real-time broker data feed required from a single window with no additional fees. All the information you need to make timely adjustment decisions is presented to you on a single window with visual cues to help you to identify when an adjustment is necessary.

A lot can happen during the trading day and huge spikes can even occur within a 30 minute period which can often be the difference between a profit and loss.
