OPTIONS back testing and analysis software

  1. MY apologies for crossposting - I wanted to get comments from this forum also.

    I am looking at the increasingly authoritarian measures against SHORT sellers with some degree of
    trepidation, and I want to epxplore alternative methods to trade.

    First, I'd like to find a program to analyze and back test options: buy- and sell- write,
    or at the very least a program to easily identify the potential returns on current stocks/options.
    Also, to identify good spreads etc, and options on the popular commodity ETFs like USO.

    The inputs would be the options data file, and optimizable parameters.

    Please suggest possibilities.

    take a look at Optionetics Platinum software. You can create and backtest options trades with it. Requires a monthly subscription.
