One of the biggest reasons our clients love TradeKing is because we make trading options online so amazingly simple.
We offer 19 different option chains, 14 of which are strategy-based. So you can easily find bid, ask and midpoint quotes, implied volatility and delta for individual options, or for an entire strategy. Select the option or strategy you want to trade directly from the chain, and the order entry screen will be pre-populated for you. So even complex option strategies can be traded with just a few clicks of your mouse.
Our modeling chains, "Call Calc" and "Put Calc", give you the Greeks for a specific option, and forecast future option prices for the entire chain. You choose your pricing model — Black-Scholes or Binomial.
We also offer a "Power Menu" on every chain that lets you jump to news, a chart, or straight to a manual order entry screen.
