See the performance of stocks, ETFs and indexes with easily customized views. Zoom from long- to short-term, add technical indicators, compare to indexes, draw trend lines, make notes and save your work. We also offer volatility charts that provide a graphical comparison of implied and historical volatility and show option trading volumes for a variety of underlying securities.
We offer 19 different option chains, 16 of which are strategy-based, to make it easier to trade options online at TradeKing. So it's simple to find quotes, implied volatility and delta for options at any strike price. Then, select the options you want to trade right in the chain. Even complex strategies can be traded with just a few clicks of your mouse.
This cost basis and tax reporting tool processes all portfolio transactions and corporate actions, identifies wash sales, calculates proper tax lot relief, provides for pre-trade analysis for short- and long-term gain/loss opportunities and renders on demand tax reports — just to name just a few of its powerful features.
Use historical or implied volatility to calculate the probability of success for a specific option or stock strategy with a few simple keystrokes. Before you place your trade, find out the probability of your security touching, expiring above or expiring below your target prices.
Chart the profit and loss potential of your trades before you place them, or study the profit and loss potential of existing positions in an easily-understood line graph format. See how your profits, losses and breakeven points change as the underlying security's price and volatility fluctuates or as expiration approaches.
Our Options Calculator makes researching a contract's greeks and implied volatility simple. Just type in the underlying stock or index symbol and the fields in the pricing model will automatically populate, making it easy to forecast a theoretical value for the options you want to trade.
Our Options Scanner screens over 150,000 option contracts to help you find the optimal option to trade based on cost (or volatility), whether it's in-, at- or out-of-the-money, expiration, liquidity and risk. The Strategy Scanner helps you find both basic and advanced strategies, ranging from covered calls and naked put strategies to more sophisticated spreads, straddles and strangles.
Find stocks to suit your strategies based on pre-defined screens, or create your own customized screens, which can be saved or fine-tuned whenever you like.
