Option Spread Greeks in IB

Discussion in 'Options' started by mathieurrr, May 30, 2011.

  1. Hey everyone, is there anyway to see the greeks when I create a spread in IB ? I can't seem to find anything.

    Also, when I am looking at spreads after market hours, The bid and ask of the spread is not shown, is there any way to change that ?

    Thanks
     
  2. Use Yahoo quotes
     
  3. Can yahoo do greeks for spreads ? I know i can use the options analytics tool in IB and manually find the greeks for the spread myself but it would be nice to just have it there already.
     
  4. LOL You are one kinky guy.

    I think you are in the wrong forum. EliteTrader is a trading forum, and Options are bought and sold for investment purposes - nothing to do with sex.
     
  5. Is there any one that can actually be helpful ? The main reason I want to see the greeks is to make sure my gamma isn't too crazy.
     

  6. You must be a very knowledgable person. I`m impressed.

    Regards

  7. Use the Risk Navigator under Analytical Tools.
    Right click an option in TWS and open a new "What if"
    click the position and enter 1, then you have what you want.
    for a spread, do the next option then right click "what if" and add it.

  9. Thank you Silver and Spindr0, your advice was exactly what I was looking for :D
     
  10. Stay away from any portfolio analytics in IB. I love the firm, but TWS said I was long 108k thetas today. They were wrong.
