    I'm a completely newbies here. The main point i create this tread is not to ask anybody to mentor me how to make money or constant income, but i just want to ask several questions about the book i'm reading. Currently reading McMillan on Options(my second book). I think a lot of people here already read that books a I bought that book when i saw the rating in this website. I'm ready to ask the questions.


    1) How can I check the average option volume?

    2) Is there any any software or any website that I can get 20-day implied volatility data?

    Currently practicing basic option strategy using virtual account. OptionXpress and ThinkorSwim. Hope somebody can answer my simple or maybe easy questions.

    p/s : also if you have any suggestion for newbie please post here, even if that suggestion dont answer my questions, I'm really happy to here them :)
