    This chart is from Optionetics Platinum.
    If you can read it, you might be able to profit from it.

  4. that chart is ridiculous haha. i want to ivolatility.com, but charts the stock's IV but not the specific option's. How do i know if the IV on a specific option is high or low if i cant compare it to past levels?

    Not everybody knows how to read it, let alone profit from it.
