Options and the Tradovate Options ChainCompleted
I wanted to share with you a new feature we will be implementing to give you an overview of how it works and get your comments and feedback.
In support of our release of options, we will be adding an Options Chain module. This module is designed to give you a clean easy view of all the Put/Call data for different strikes and easily place trades for those products if desired. I will provide an overview below:
The Options Chain module can be found under the Workspace Manager. Like the other available modules, it can be added to a workspace or popped out into a separate window (on the desktop version)
Select the Underlying Futures Symbol
As with the other Tradovate modules, you can configure which columns you would like to display
You can specify the number of strikes you would like to view in the module
Right-clicking on a row will display an action menu with additional functions. These functions are specific to whether you are on the Puts or Calls side of the chain and which strike price you are on:
Selecting "Trade" will pre-populate an order ticket with the specific option selected
An option to plot option symbol on chart will be really helpful for active traders.
For instance , currently when I search chart for "OESH8 P2780" , I get a message that this. is not a futures product. In current interface, placing an options is not fast and will dissuade active traders
I have an account at Think or Swim (TD ameritrade), this functionality is available on their platform so I believe adding such a functionality is possible.
