Newbie Options question

Discussion in 'Options' started by traderjb, Aug 19, 2003.

  1. Ok, this may sound stupid, but please forgive me I'm new to options (I traded e-minis and stocks, you know the usual suspects). Is there some sort of stock screener/option screener that finds optionable stocks, or say a specific month of stocks. Say, I was bearish on the market and I wanted Puts for December. I have OptionsXpress but their screener tends to spit out multiple copies of the same stock in a list. I just want some sort of scanner to find puts for december (or any other month), nothing more, nothing less.

    Thanks, been reading the stuff on this site, you guys (and gals) are the best!:D

    Do you want the most profitable position for your target or do you want a list of stocks with the lowest volatility as you are purchasing puts? Have a look at smartsearch xl from it is the best options website I have found and will find just about anything you want.
