Options Scanner

Try this tool

Powered by iVolatility, the Options Scanner screens over 150,000 option contracts in real-time to help you find your optimal options trade.

The Basic Search function helps you determine which option to trade based on cost, volatility, whether it's in-, at- or out-of-the-money, expiration date, liquidity and risk.

The Advanced Search function lets you screen using 25 customizable filters that can be based on the underlying stock, a single option contract, or on a combination of the two. Save and monitor your screens for future reference, too.
