    Do you know of any trading software - other than Bloomberg, that offers the ability to view block trades for options i.e. all orders greater than 1000 contracts?

    We offer Instinet's TradeSpeed, an equity/option platform that has a module for viewing block trades.

    i doubt this will be helpful but liffe bclear publishes block trade registrations, and the cme and associated dcms have a site which supposedly shows block trades - however that is definitely incomplete / not up to date. I wouldn't be surprised if other exchanges did this. ICE shows block and spread volumes in its end of day reports. Otherwise, like bob sez you would need a professional feed to see what gets traded.
  4. You can only do it on a symbol by symbol basis, but TOS will let you filter TOS on options, and you can set the threshold for qty.
